Outlook only retrieves scheduling information from Exchange 2003 server up to the end of december and not beyond??

All clients are unable to plan meetings beyond the 31 December 2006 as the free/busy information show up no information. I reset the free/busy options to publish 6 months worth of information one the client machines but still I cannot view info beyond the end of december. Can anyone help

Thanks in advance.

Greetings, alexlivingstone.

Try launching Outlook from the command line with the /cleanfreebusy option.  

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\Outlook.exe /cleanfreebusy"

Cheers!

Greetings,

Sorry that did not work. It still shows everything from 31 december as no information. It is like changing to 2007 has something to do with it??

This is Outlook 2007?  If so, then that might be the problem.  I've not started using 2007 yet, so I wouldn't be in a position to help with this.

No all clients are Outlook 2003 and have got exchange server 2003. It just seems strange that everything is fine up to 31 december and from the 1 jan there is no information. I thought that it might have something to do with exchange but I can't find any thing useful as it effects all clients in the domain.

Sorry, I took "It is like changing to 2007" meant that you'd migrated to Outlook 2007.  On the computer where you bumped the amount of published free/busy information up to six months does that user see all six months of their free/busy information or only up to December 31st?

Yes it did. I also had to run the cleanfreebusy command as well. The problem I had was that everyone of my clients had to run this command so that everyone could see everyone elses status thats why I was trying to see if I could do something on the server side. I failed to find anything. The thought of trying to get all the users to run the cleanfreebusy command frightened me so I created a script that ran when all the users login which solved the problem. Thank you for your help.

If you don't mind me asking, why did you give my answer a "C", the lowest grade possible?  My initial answer was both timely (5 minutes) and correct.  EE's grading guidelines (http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hi73) would seem to suggest that a "B" is appropriate.

That is fair enough. I have to confess I never read the criteria of each grade. Please could you let me know how to change it?

It's not a bg deal, I was just curious if there was any particular reason, somthing I could have done better, etc.  If you want to change the grade, then you'd need to post a request in the support area asking an administrator to change the grade or reopen the question so you can change it.
