I want to use Exchange 2003 for Calendar only and NO EMAIL - HELP
Posted on 2006-07-11
This should be possible, but I'm at a complete loss.
I have MS Windows 2003 SBS with Exchange Server 2003
We are using the shared Calendar in Outlook which I want and I had setup interal email and external email for the users. Here is my problem.
I can send an email to the external address firstname.lastname@example.org and they will get it within 1 minutes (outlook is set to check email every 1 minute).
The problem comes when someone send an email internally........it can take 40 minutes or longer for the email to come in, UNLESS you manually click on send and receive.
What I would like to do is just disable the email on Exchange Server all together and only use the shared calendar.
Another thing that might be important. In the Outlook contacts I can have an internal contact setup as abc. when you type in abc in the To field the email will be sent out over the internet and the person will get it quickly. If you click on Reply after you receive that message, it goes to the users Exchange mailbox and hangs there forever.
Can someone tell me the errors in my ways!
Thanks for the help.
