Hi, got a small problem in Microsoft Outlook Web Access, the date above the calendar in Public Folders shows as 31 May 2007. Is there any way to change this to read: Friday 31 May 2007?
Any help much appreciated!

It is probably based on the System Locale of either the Exchange server or the client that you are using. You need to check those are correct.

Hi, if i log on to the Public folder from the server it displays the day, however accessing from any other machine still only displays the date. I can get to the Public folders in the server, but receive an error "the handle specified is invalid" when i try to open the calendar.

The second issue is not related to the first - I would suggest posting a new question for that error.

If things look correct from the server, then Locale (Regional) settings would indicate where the problem is. Until Exchange 2007 OWA uses the settings on the workstation to determine display information, language etc.

Hi, changed both server & workstation regional & language settings (in control panel) to show long date as
dddd dd MMMM yyyy
Afraid it hasnt helped, the date at the top of the calendar in OWA still shows as 03 June 2007.
I can change the Long date format in Options in OWA, but it just doesnt show the format we are after, is there a way to add this format to the drop down list given there?
Many thanks.

The rules with OWA are quite simple - if you cannot see how to change it, then it almost certainly cannot be done. There are a few small changes that have been done by third parties, but these are mainly to add new features, not a format change, which is something that many would consider very trivial.
