I have two client sites - none of which I setup sbs2003 for.

1. client site one - when user1 say "joe" logs into ANY machine, and when they open outlook
they can see ALL the SAME emails no matter what machine they click on. For example emails from 2009 - to preset.

2. client site two - when user2 say "bill" logs into ANY machine, he sees that the machine he usually always logs into has ALL his emails. But when he logs into another machine he does not see ALL of his emails.

Is there a setting in exchange or outlook so that I can make client site two the same as client site one? please help

What do they see in OWA is what they have in Mailbox :)

Could be some OST corruption or one of them has PST as Default ?

Make sure outlook is not configure to deliver new email to the personal folders!!  Should be set to the mailbox - [username]

Under Incorrect setting for outlook

Under control panel/mail/email accounts/email tab

apprantely by default button should be greyed out if using exchange.

but in may case its not even there.

Apppratenly outlook2003 and outlook 2007 by default pull email from exchange (just how I want it, so that I dont have to go around to each workstation backing up PST files).

Still stuck though, so if the buttons missing, how do you still tell outlook 2007 to deliver to local hard drive pst?


now theres a hard one to crack.

is the computer in the screen shot the one that has all the email on it?? it looks like there is only 2 emails in the inbox on your screen shot.  Check the setting on the machine that has all the email.

fixed - but I still want my buttonfixed - but I still want my buttonthis is getting really silly. Even this URL states I must do what you peeps are tell me, but the change button is still missing. Thats a mystery if anybody can solve it. Any I fixed it, you add an outlook pst file and then click on the set default, see pic.

if you don't care about the emails in the account, delete the outlook profile.
