SP2 broke 'Change Mail Class' script running on Exchange 2003 (Converts post to mail items)

We used to use a script called 'Change Mail Class' on our Exchange 2003 servers.

It basically converted post items to mail items in a public folder which staff have access to. The original article I followed to achieve this can be found here:

http://www.msexchange.org/articles/MF021.html 

Since installing Exchange 2003 SP2 this script no longer works. I have unregistered the script and tried to re-register it but it doesnt work.

So can anyone give me another method of preventing mail that is sent to a public folder from being sent as post items? or advice on why the script wont work anymore.

Regards

The functionality to change the message format is now built in.
You just need to make a registry change then bounce the services.

Simon,

Thank you for your swift response.

Iam a little confused, I admit it doesnt take much!

The article describes and correct me if Iam wrong, how to add a registry setting to convert mail items which arrive in a public folder to IPM.Note instead of IPM.Post.

The problem with our setup is that mail that is sent to a public folder from external senders lands in the public folder as IPM.Note, we would like it as IPM.Post

Could you explain a little further please?

Many thanks

The naming convention used by Microsoft is a little confusing, but shouldn't cause too many issues once you get your head around it.
