Outlook and Exchange

By Iphicles ·
i have 4 users. 3 (2 w/outlook 2000 and 1 w/outlook 9 were setup with Exchange e-mail accounts. 1(outlook 9 was setup with an Internet E-mail account. The 3 can participate in Public folders, calendars, etc...but the 1 user cannot (she does not have access to the "Public" Folder.. When I try and add another account as an Exchange account, it only lets me add another Internet account. How can I have the one user access the Public folder? Also, can I have a remote user participate with the Public folders, calendars is he is not a member of my domain?

In order to have access to MS Exchange public folders, the user must be set up with a valid NT user logon ID and password (not to mention client license) and a valid Exchange mailbox. There is no way for a user who is set up with Internet email only, or who is not a member of your domain, to access Exchange mailboxes or public folders directly. In order to add Exchange access to your 1 local user, you need to rerun the Outlook 98 setup and select "Corporate or Workgroup" instead of "Internet only" during the setup. Hope this helps!

I can't answer the first part for sure, but if you're going to Tools-Services-Add and you don't have an option to add an Exchange service, the computer is not recogizing that there is an Exchange server on the network and you might have a network issue (to troubleshoot, make sure you can see the Exchange server from the workstation, try pinging, etc).

As far as the remote user, if they are a member of another domain, you could create a trust between the domains or alternately, you could justcreate an account for them on the Exchange domain and then link that account to their Exchange account.

Unfortunately, he's just a single user at a remote location. I'm considering a VPN for him. Thanks.

The first part of your question has been pretty effectively answered already, and the respondents are right. As to connecting a remote user, the easiest way is to set him up so he can establish a VPN connection and thus log onto your domain throughany other internet connection. He would then have access to everything as if he were a local user.

The Outlook 98 has been configured with Internet Mail Only mode, when what you need is Corporate/Workgroup mode. If you use Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs, you can get to the Add Components screen for Outlook 98 to change this. See http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/choosingmode.htm.
