Hello everyone,

I've been researching this all day and so far no solution offered on the Internet has worked.  We have implemented a Signature Management solution from CodeTwo to handle our user's signatures.  It works great for our Office 365 Webmail, but our local install of Outlook 2016 is not cooperating.  The signature is updated with whatever changes are made in the CodeTwo admin program, but in the place of the signature image, I simply see a red X and the text 'The picture can't be displayed'.

1. I've tried using both an image accessible via http URL (This is the one that works for our Office 365 Webmail).
2. I've tried using a UNC path to a shared folder on our network.  This works within the CodeTwo Admin signature editor
       - but when viewed in Outlook, I just see the red x and the text 'The picture can't be displayed'.
3. I've added the registry entry "HKCU/Software/microsoft/office/16/outlook/options/mail"  -> "Send Pictures With Document"  -> value set
      - to 1.
4.  I've ensured my Office 365 software is on the current update.  I'm on version ->  1703 Build 7967.2139

Any ideas?
I am running into a problem where my management staff would like to be able to view and edit are team calendar which is based out of a public folder.

I found CodeTwo Software would do exactly what we want just at a price tag of around 1000 dollars. which is more then we want to spend on 1 calendar.

I need an option that is user friendly to manage and is reliable
Hello All

I am using the software CodeTwo Active Directory Photos to import picture into AD.
Worked perfectly for the initial import, but now i am trying to update a pictures and its been close to 24 hours and the picture has yet to update in outlook.

So i have 2 questions
1) Do you know why the picture would not be updating within outlook with the CodeTwo Software?

2)Is there an easier way of doing this so it can update real time instead of having to wait for it to propagate?

Environment breakdown
AD and Exchange Environment and all the user account are linked with the proper exchange account.

I need to migrate off of 2003 server and exchange to 2008 R2 and exchange 2010, are there specific steps and a guideline to follow.  once I start do I need to finish or can I build the server, install exchange and then start the migration?  is it cleaner/easier to just have users save all of there emails to an archive folder and start with a new exchange 2010 box and not migrate at all?
We have a public room calendar within exchange that we are needing to clean up 8 years of data on because we are moving it to a program called Code Two. We don't want to move these items, but we want to move the most current 3 years of data.

We are running SBS 2003 R2.

Is there a simple way of cleaning up these past years of appointments without having to go day to day and deleting them manually?
Hi all

i need advice to buy commercial tool which meet this requirements

1- take the received attachment files to shared file system (( local in our network not cloud ))
2- our end user know nothing about IT and we want the end user to feel like he do normal attachment procedure as he used too . so if he get link or html notification or text notification this for us not good . we need the user to see the type of attachment  like pdf - JPG - doc - etc not URL link for the file location even if the file store in shared file system .

we have code two rule pro and this tool has feature called  Strip and dump attachments   i tested it but my manager said this not good for our end user

that i have to search for better tool

i checked online most of the tools use cloud  like box

our target to reduce the exchange data base size but at the same time we don't want to put restriction for our end users

we have also another type of problem for sending big attachments files for external users out side our exchange organization

we also think about solution for this case  

if you can give some me some ideas or advice i will be grateful

We have been using CodeTwo signatures which is amazing at getting images and custom signatures. Intermedia only has the ability to globally add signatures and uses the AD information to populate. This was going great but I had a few issues. The users now want 2 separate formats which is not possible due to having a global signature. I wanted to see if it was possible to create a signature manually for each user and add it as their jpegphoto photo and use it that as the signature and how this can be done. Basically I want Intermedia to pull up "business cards" and not worry about pulling AD names/email/address etc. Using Windows 2012 AD server.
Do you know what would cause the searches to fail on Exchange 2010 databases ?
Users are reporting that they are unable to find all items during a search.  Helpdesk knows how to fix the problem by recreating the search files or to go around it by building new a database and copying the mailboxes. However we are trying to find out what is causing the frequent corruption.  The Exchange server is Exchange  2010, Trend Micro Scan Mail for exchange mail filter,  code two pro signature and Symantec Backup Exec 2015 remote agent also run on the server.

This link is a discussion of similar problems with DAGs and one user traced the problem to an anti virus product.
we have 4 exchange servers
EX1  has     hub transport  & client access
EX2  has     hub transport  & client access & Mailbox
EX3  has     hub transport  & client access & Mailbox
EX4  has     hub transport  & client access & Mailbox

we bought code two exchange rules pro  to configure some rules and email signature

the question is that we bought license only for one server EX1 which has to act as client access and hub transport

so how can i make sure that the all servers send emails internal and external via EX1 just to make sure all servers use one hub transport which called in my case EX1 . even if the other server still have transport rule installed

where i have to change in EMC to let all servers use the hub transport which installed and configured on EX1 and ignore the other hub transport  servers .

I have configured a mailbox for staff to email their IT issues to.
All our users have a signature that contains some legal text and few images (company logos and what not... the usual garbage)

Is there a way I can remove the text and images from the email BEFORE it arrives into the mailbox.
Maybe with a hub transport rule or a third party application that can forward it on?

I know you cannot do a direct migration and I know there are code two type tools that sorta allow it with cross forest and other domains etc, but it all seems like a lot of work for 10 users.  so here is my question.  Can I build up a new 2012 server with AD , DNS, DHCP etc.  and then install fresh on the 2012 box 2013 exchange and create new mailboxes for the AD users already there (from the 2003 AD migration) and just import the PST files that I got from doing an EXMERGE on the 2003 SBS server?  Would I have to completely decommission the 2003 box before exchange 2013 is installed leaving mail in limbo for a day while all that happened?
Anyone familiar with this product?  Calendar Sync, Contact Sync and GAL Sync that works with Exchange ActiveSync.  Works with iPhone and Android.  My uses utilizing it a lot and it breaks unfortunately.

Unfortunately it breaks so often and to fix it takes 45min to few hours.  

Another I heard Code Two Exchange Sync but I heard its even worse.

Anyone have other suggestions besides that?  Obviously SharePoint, but we can't approve the product just for this feature.  
Company using Exchange 2010 with Outlook 2010.

Please advice.

Having issues with my exchange server, running exchange server 2010 sp3, all emails keep getting stuck in the submission queue and i need to keep deleting the queue and recreating it for them to process correctly. Any insight to why this would start happening randomly after functioning fine for 3 years?

Event viewer does not show any errors and the rest of exchange is working flawlessly.
We are using exchange 2003 with outlook 2010. We use code two for exchange for our email signatures. I have created a signature which is our company logo with details on with a jpg file, sometimes it doesn't display for the recipient it shows up as an attachment jpg?

I created the gif, then copy this to the email server then created the signature by selecting the .html file which previews fine

Is this something I can fix or is it dependent on their email client settings and spam filter?

Thank you
We are using Exchange 2010 SP3. I created a disclaimer that goes out to external users but what we have noticed is that when we reply it is always at the bottom off the email.

Is there a way to place it underneath the reply and not at the bottom of the email ?
Is there a 3rd party soft , possibly free or something else that could help me?
We have exchange 2007 runnung on W2003 R2 SP2. I need to be able to have people in the field to be able to receive thier calendar and shared calendar on their phone. I have looked for a solution be everytime I think I have one the software does not work or no support to get it too work. My question us has anyone have something like this running?
This one is strange -- I hope I can explain the situation.
I work for a school district and each school has a series of Public Folder calendars in which to record their school functions etc.
I have one user who has somehow managed to add the Public Folder calendar to his Outlook calendar as a shared calendar.
He's now added a lot of the school's functions to the shared calendar in his Outlook but none of those activities actually show in the Public Folder calendar.
Now he wants to share the shared calendar he has in his Outlook to the whole campus but it's not a name that shows up in the Global Address List and I don't see it if I open the user's calendar.
I think I already know the answer but thought I'd toss this out there incase someone has encountered this same thing and has found a resolution
I'm not a group policy guru.  Nor am I an Outlook signature guru.  Thus, I'm lost.

I've been asked to automate the creation of a domain-wide Outlook signature for all of the users in our organization.  This signature is supposed to include the individual's name, the name of our organization, our address, user's email address, an icon, and a FOIA disclaimer.

So, basically, I need to poll AD for user-specific data, include a picture, change font size and color for the FOIA disclaimer, and then write everything into an HTM signature file for Outlook.  Then we need to force everyone in the organization to use HTML formatting for Outlook.

It should appear as:

FirstName LastName

Icon (followed directly by a message)

FOIA Disclaimer

I've tried reading up on a few sites and I'm lost as to how to implement this.  I really need a step-by-step here.  I have the Outlook14.adm loaded into GP but I don't see any options to force a preset signature onto users, much less a signature file which implements AD variables.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
We have a exchange 2010 box and at least 50 users that use moblie devices that use activesync. I would like to populate the phone number of our corporate office into the AD somehow so when the corporate office calls a users cell phone the name of corporate office comes up instead of just the number. How does one go about doing this since the corporate office does not have an email address?
Running Exchange 2010.

I have a user who would like his personal exchange calendar to include all events that get posted to the company's shared events calendar.

Is there a way to have his personal calendar automatically update and post events/appointments/meetings as soon as any user in the company adds an item the shared exchange calendar?
Hi all,

I have created a public calendar and I need to publish this on Intranet.

Outlook version - 2010
Exchange server - 2007
OS - Windows 7

Any assistance is much appreciated
I have a client that has an exchange server.  He have been given an exchange account on one of his client's exchange server.  My client wants to be able to synchronize all of his calendar data from both exchange accounts into his main exchange account.

Has anyone ever heard of this being done cleanly?  He also uses Outlook 2011 for Mac.


Because of joining 2 firms, we still have 2 domains. Within the next year, this will only be one domain.

The firms are connected via VPN and the domains are Trusted.

I have an account with e-mail on both domains.

How is it possible to synkronise calenders in these 2 mail-accounts?

(Outlook 2010, on both sites, Exchange 2007)
