Hello,

We have several linked DC's with our Exchange server. You can change your password in OWA thru the main DC, but if you try it will a linked DC account it doesn't work.

Any suggestions?

If you are talking about a linked mailbox in another forest it does not seem to be possible

Anyone else have any input before I close this?

So the answer is it can't be done?

Thanks,

Are your end users making ugly email signatures?

Have you left it up to your end users to create their own email signatures? Are they forgetting to add the company logo or using garish font colors? Take control and ensure all users have the same email signature.
