Printer and Exchange2000

the answer to the first is quit simple. On the win2k computer sharing the printer, in the configuration tab of the printer. on the sharing tab there is a place that you can load addition drivers. load the win nt 4.0 driver for the printer. when you nt 4.0 systems try to install it , it will brag the correct drivers from the server. Not a usb issue at all . I have done this to many times now

I would advise on either deleting the account if there are only two. Copy all the emails the a local system and delete the account. then you can create all new accounts/mailboxes on a clean slate and will not have to worry with pre-existing settings. I have ran into the issue of some accounts not working with reinstalls and upgrades. the easiest solution I have found is to either readd permissions to the mailboxes , using the exchange snap in or si,ply delete and readd the accounts .
