reply or forward from public folder using OWA

Q: reply or forward from public folder using OWA

I have a windows 2003 with exchange 2003 sp2 installed. I recently found out that it is not possible to reply or forward mails from the public folder using OWA.

A bit of googling lead me to the following where it is mentioned:

http://searchexchange.techtarget.com/generic/0,295582,sid43_gci1256505,00.html#

By design, unless you are accessing OWA through a front-end server (and not directly via a back-end server), you will not be able to use the Reply, Reply All, or Forward functions for messages contained in public folders. While you'll be able to reply to and forward all messages in your mailbox regardless of how you access OWA, unless you go through an Exchange 2003 front-end server, you will not be able to take these actions for public folder messages.Click to expand...

Is there any work around to this?

Thanks

I have 2 email addresses (with different ISPs) both operated through MS Outlook.One of these is fine.  However, with the other email address, I cannot automatically reply or forward incoming messages.What do you think is wrong and what can I try to correct?

A:CAN'T REPLY OR FORWARD

What ISP's?Which Version of Outlook are you using?Curious as to why you want to ( automatically ) reply or forward messages... unattended response system or relay point for one e-mail to come in to a specific e-mail address and then forward to another without exposing the second e-mail address etc?

Hi,

I've been having a problem with Microsoft Outlook 2003 for a few months. 9 times out of 10 whenever I try to Reply or Forward an email it is regected with this error message...

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

I've checked my email setting etc and everything seems to be in order, I am perfectly able to send emails as long as I'm not Replying or Forwarding. None of my virus setting etc have been changed at all so I'm at a bit of a loss

I've tryed checking Microsoft help but I can't find anything that I appears to solve my problem so I'm hoping that someone here will have the answere.

BTW I'm connected using NTL home through Cable modem. One of my email addresses is NTL and one is a business email. I have the same problem no matter which one I use.

Many Thanks,
Tess

Hi Anyone !
My wife has a Dell Laptop Win xp, with Ms IE6, and MS Outlook! She uses it for her business! She has never been able to Reply or Forward and E-Mail. When she clicks on Reply or Forward, it appears to go to the OutBox, and sent! But it doesn't send. It just stays in the Outbox.

I am not a Computer Guru, but I have played with it. I have went to View, and checked all options pretaining to Outlook, and am seeing nothing pretaining to Forwards, or Replies, where a box could be checked, or unchecked. Just Nothing !

Is there somewhere else I could look, that might pretain to the Replies or Forwards with MS Outlook?? Any Help or Advice would be greatly appreciated.!!

Thanks All...

I use Comcast Webmail. I can both receive & send Email's. What I cannot do is forward or reply to an Email I have received. If I forward an Email to you that I had received you would only receive what I may have written, and not see the original message. If I reply to a message that you sent to me, again you can only see what I wrote, and not what your original message was, in fact, when I reply I cannot see your origianl message in the window that I am typing in either. I have contacted Comcast Tech Support many times, nothing they have asked me to do has worked.
I have no problem if I use Yahoo or Gmail, but I would prefer to use Comcast. Yes, it did at one time work just fine, now it isn't.
I use IE6, cable, wireless, XP - SP2.

You may have "Nothing (don't include original email message)" with a checkmark by it.

first time with this problem in 10+ years of using email; hope you can help.

Am running HP, 3.2g cpu, 1.5g ram, Office 2003.

I was going thru Inbox, decided to forward some email. Everything was proceeding normally; I was able to forward six emails. On the seventh forward, Outlook froze up when "Forward" was clicked. I waited & finally ended program thru Task Manager.
I tried again 3 more times, same problem. I rebooted, same problem. I tried "Reply", same problem. I tried "Send", same problem. I scanned Outlook .pst file with both AVG & Malwarebytes, found nothing. I did a Detect & Repair thru Outlook Help Menu, did not help. I sent & forwarded a test mail from GMAIL, & that came thru O.K.

so, bottom line is:unable to send, reply or forward email using Outlook 2003.

Any Ideas?

I'm using outlook express 6 with windows xp. I have 3 email accounts, but only use one of them to send, and this is the main one that emails come in on. When I 'create' an email it uses the account I want, but when I 'reply' or 'forward' it picks the first one alphabetically in the 'from' box at the top of the email, no matter which address the email was sent to. I want to use the the second alphabetical one. How can I set it to always use that particular account?

I have two email accounts in OE 6. One is the primary and is the selected 'default'. However, when I reply or forward, OE selects the secondary account. It doesn't matter to which acct the mail was addressed. Only new mail gets the 'default' account address. ?? If I click the address bar I get to choose which I want but that is not what I want to do everytime. 90% of time I use the primary. I want the 'default'(primary) to be automatically selected, then if I want to use the secondary I can change to it. I have gone to tools - options - accounts and reselected my primary account/address but no joy. If I select the secondary as the default it is automatic for all three. How do I get my primary 'default' address to be automatically chosen for all three ??
 

A:Solved: OE - reply and forward account selection

Hi Old Aggie and welcome to TSG.

To set the Default identity, click on File at the top of OE. Go down the menu and click on Identities. Select Manage Identities and you'll get the window I've attached below.
The top line will be the identity that OE starts with. The second line will set the identity that is used when you click on a link to send an E-mail. When you've got it set the way you want, click OK.
T.

Edit:
Just reread your post and realized that's probably not what you asked.
Check the Properties for each identity,Tools>Accounts>Mail tab>Properties. Make sure the Outgoing Mail is set the same as the Incoming for each account on the Servers tab.

I was running WL Essentials (version: 14.0.8117.0416) when KB2520039 (upgrade, not removable via Windows & Uninstall / Change), installed itself automatically. Then, every time I ran WL Mail, got this message: "Failed to initialize Shared Canvas: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Not possible to load file or assembly 'WindowsLive.Writer.Localization, Version=15.4.3508.1109, Culture=neutral" (for short, the message goes for about 10 lines).

To eliminate this problem, downloaded and installed WLE 2011 (15.4.3538.0513), after uninstalling WLE 2009.

NOTE: When installing any WLE version I just pick WL Messenger and WL Mail.

Now, every time I try to create, reply or forward a message in Live Mail, I receive this message: "A problem has occured when trying to open this message. A problem has occured. Please try again". No error codes are presented.
Also, I can not "Add to Calendar". If I try, the exactly same message appears.
I do receive all mails sent to me, and I can also send confirmation when message sender requests to do so.

I have already tried the following:

1. Repair Windows Live Essentials (via Uninstall / Change). Issue remains.
2. Uninstall and reinstall WLE 2011 (version 15.4.3538.0513). Did not work.
3. Remove and re-create all accounts (gmail and hotmail). Issue remains.
3. Uninstall WLE 2011, and install WLE 2009 (a.k.a. 14.0.8117.0416), and WL Mail works fine.

I'm using Outlook 2003 and when I choose to forward a message (or reply to all) from my sent items, I cannot use Bold, Italics, Underline etc. on some of them. It doesn't always happen, just on some emails, but I cannot figure out what is different about some of these emails that won't let me format when sending them.

Does anyone have any ideas? I will continue to search for the answer in the meantime.

For the past week or two, I have not been able to reply to, or forward email.

Using Windows Live Classic version under IE 6.0 on a WME platform.

I have no trouble opening and reading any email from my inbox, but when I try to reply or forward, all I get is a small sliver of space to type in. The sliver is scrollable, but the screen is not. There is no way to expand the sliver.

I've been using MSN and Windows Live for many years. This seems to be a new problem and it seems to me that the problem is on the server side.

Does anyone else have this issue? I have searched, but can't find any others...

I would appreciate any advice, clues, or tips that you can offer.

Is there a simple solution that I am missing???

Thanks,
OldJoe
 

A:Reply/Forward problem on Windows Live Classic

I also noticed that various attempts to reply or forward email had the side effect of reducing system resources to as low as 3%, which would destabilize the system making it necessary to reboot.

I decided to increase my screen resolution from 800X600 to 1024X768.

This reduced the severity of the problem, and opened up the sliver somewhat so that 10 or 12 lines of text are visible rather than the 1 or 2 lines that I had before.

I have no idea what is causing this problem. Has anyone else had this experience?

MICROSOFT should read this thread. I sent them feedback but I doubt if they read it...

I have a new computer with Vista Home Premium and I moved some of the Public Folders (Public Documents, Music, Pictures) from C to D, as instructed by Microsoft at this link When you try to move a public folder in Windows Vista, the Move button may be missing

I want to be able to share these folders from their new location with the other computers in my home network, so I turned on the Public Folder sharing in the Network and Sharing Center.

However, in the Network and Sharing Center the only public folders recognized are the ones still at the original location - C:\Users\Public\Favorites and C:\ ...\Public Desktop (hidden files) and ...\Recorded TV.

I have spent a few hours searching for the answer to this on the internet. In this version of Vista Home Premium, there is NOTthe option to change the letter of the directory in the registry by changing the key called public as suggested by the How To Geek at this link Move the Public Folder in Windows Vista :: the How-To Geek

How To Geek says:"Browse down to this key:

You should see a key called Public. Double-click it to open it and change it to D:\Public, or whatever location you want to move the public folder to."Note - Vista Home Premium does NOT have a Public key.

Does anyone else have any other ideas?

Thanks so much in advance.

I have two network cards in my PC. One of them connects to the internet while the other connects to my home network.

The issue is enabling public folders for the home network in "Network and Sharing Center" enables public folders for the public network also. In other words Windows grants permission to people on the internet to access my c:\users\Public folder.

Disabling public folders under public network settings disables public folders for the home network also, preventing people on my local area network from accessing my PC.

Refer this screenshot if you don't get my problem: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/6878074832/

In other words Windows grants permission to people on the internet to access my c:\users\Public folder.

A:Cannot turn off "Public Folder Sharing" for public network

I think it's because you set up a Public Network as your first interface. Because of this it may not be possible to turn off the Public file sharing option.

You don't need to use both interfaces to share the wireless connection with your wife. You can do that with a single interface by just setting up a Home Network on one of the interfaces then sharing out from that interface using software to make it easier like Connectify.

Recently, and seemingly spontaneously, whenever I open an e-mail (the text) looks 'normal' size. However, as soon as I select forward / reply / or reply all - the APPEARANCE of the font size jumps to GIANT. I say appearance because if I place the cursor in the text it shows the ACTUAL font size has not changed. Yet, the font appears so BIG it causes the text to wrap lines very frequently with only a few words per line. It makes it VERY DIFFICULT to scroll through and read or modify the text. The NEW text I type, of course, has the same problem - APPEARING way to large.
Since the ACTUAL font size is correct, I can't change the font size. Neither can I find anywhere to remedy this great INCONVENIENCE.
Thank you,

Dear Fellow Experts of IE6,
I am now facing with a very peculiar problem.
I have a Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook S6130 notebook running on Windows XP Version 2002 SP1. The IE6 was bundled with the OS. My current IE version is Ver 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.050501-1526.
I have a 4Mbps broadband linked to a Linksys WRT300N Ver 1 router.
My problem started since about 3 weeks ago, and during that period I did not install any new hardware or software. The main problem is everytime when I tried to reply to an e-mail from any web based e-mail service like Yahoo Mail, GMail and others by pressing the "Reply" button, I will get a error "Page Not Found" error. The same problem occurs when I tried to forward my e-mails. However, I have no problem whatsoever in reading my e-mails, surfing the internet or downloading any files. The speedtest show I almost always have a 4Mbps download time.
I have a desktop with IE 7 having the same broadband connection through the same router and there is no problem at all with replying or forwarding to any e-mail. I also borrowed another much older notebook with IE6 and also do not face any problem with replying or forwarding to any of my e-mails.
I have tried all the remedial measures posted at http://support.microsoft.com.kb/326155 except meddling with the registry, a step which I am uncomfortable with, but failed to rectify the problem.

I remember with Vista, this folder had multiple entries and they were not mine(probably came with new laptop, like bloat ware?). I was clueless then (with Vista)what that folder was about...and I'm still in the dark(with W7) .

I just discovered today, with W7, this folder is completely empty. (Why?).

I don't remember if I shared it(with Vista), but now I realize I have options...to share or not. I feel silly sharing an empty folder. So I opted to turn sharing OFF . Is being selfish(not sharing) disadvantageous to my system?

A:What's The Public Folder?...and what to do with it?

Hello Pappi,

The "Public" folders, are basically folders that the public (all users) have full access to by default. They basically set to be shared by "Everyone" making it easier to share files between users on the local PC and network easy to do by simply putting a file in one of the Public folders.

Empty Public folders do not take up any space. They are not a security risk since they only have access to what you place in the Public folders.

It's just a personal choice if you want to have Public folder sharing turned on or off.

Here's some more details below on all this if you like.

Hope this helps,

I stupidly didn't fully understand what the Public Folder was and deleted it. I thought that by doing that no one would have access to my personal files. Well, I soon discovered that I shouldn't have done that.

#1. Can I get it back from ?
#2. Now I can't put anything into the Library/Documents Folder and don't understand why.
#3. If I can't retrieve that Public Folder can I somehow re-create another sub folder.

I didn't look in the Recycle Bin. Would it have gone there?

I should have known better since I just got Win 7 but it seemed the smart thing to do at the time.

Hello,
I've recently been having some trouble with installing and running a few programs. (skype and rosetta stone are two that it happens). When I open them my entire computer just freezes. I have a feeling that it might have something to do with my Public Folders. A little while back I was trying to fix them because they appeared as just standard yellow folders, instead of the folders with the image on it. However, I could not get all of them to change to the imaged folder. My public desktop stayed as a normal yellow folder.

I did this fixing by following a website:
http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/172301-public-folder-icons-restore-default-icon.html

The website basically had me do shell commands, and replace the desktop.ini file for each folder...It just so happens that this website was designed for windows vista, not windows 7, so I think that I messed something up. Cause ever since then my programs have not been running correctly.

Evening all,

Just looking for some advice regarding the public folder in windows. I have windows 7 on my desktop which is wired to my router and my laptop running vista wireless and on both machines i deleted the public folders in the users folder as i never had any intention of sharing anything. I did this a while ago now so there is no way of restoring it via a system restore. My main question is im looking to share some music files between my laptop and desktop with the files being on the desktop machine, could i create just another basic folder and share it that way? if so how would i go about doing it?

Im kinda new to the whole sharing thing so any help would be much appreciated

many thanks

There are separate Advanced file sharing settings which refer specifically to the Public folders so that needs to be enabled.

Besides that you should make sure that you have enabled sharing for the Public folders by going to C:>Users>Public folder, and enable sharing through the Sharing tab. You should also make sure that the C:>Users folder is shared out through the Sharing tab as well.

Hi,

I'm on a home network. Its all been configured. My firewall has been configured. Just wondering how to put files in the public folder. I understand you can just copy files in there but i dont want to because it'll take up space. Is there a way to make individual files or folders share themselves into the public folders without duplicating themselves from the original to save space? Because i dont want two from the same file, ie one in the public folder and the other in the original folder.

Also, i use vista and my other network computers are on xp. I noticed on one of them, i can give it files and but i cannot take files from it onto my computer. I understand it must be a sharing setting on that computer but im not sure where to go to fix it since its xp and im a vista person now.

I just set up my Public folders to share files across my home network and the Public folder already has lots of files in it that I didn't put there.

For example, Public Desktop has shortcuts to Adobe Reader etc. Another folder called Games has the full installations of some of my games. I don't want these shared!

When I deleted some of them, they were also deleted from my real desktop. Not good.
When I clicked on Share and tried to Unshare one of these folders, it wouldn't let me.

Three questions:
1) How did they get there in the first place?
2) How can I keep this from happening in the future?
3) Since deleting some of them also deleted them from my computer, how can I remove these files from the Public sharing area without messing up the installation on my computer?

I used to have messed up file sharing settings because the printer wouldnt work but they were alright because whoever looked into my Computer in the network would only find a Public folder. (w/o passwords)

Now, i reinstalled windows, and whenever somenoe looks into my computer under the network, they have to enter a password and once they do, they can access not only the public folder, but all my documents under my folder. (Users/MyStuff)

the sharing folder is Users so people can see everything inside Users if they have my password.

What i want to do is let them only access the Public folder WITHOUT my password.

That way, if i have something that needs to be transferred, i'll just drop it on in the public folder, and someone can take it.

I am confused in terms of how to reach these settings and i would appreciate it if anyone could offer a solution.

I wanted to move the Public Folder from C:\Users to D:\, so I simply copied the folder, delete the original, and created a symbolic link (with -mklink-). A little knowledge was a dangerous thing - apparently I should have used -robocopy- to ensure the copy of Public had the correct characteristics. So, is there a way to fix D:\Public so that it has the correct permissions of a "Public" folder? If not, is there a way to recreate the original C:\Users\Public? I am not concerned about any data in this folder, as there was (so far) none there.

Apologies if this has been addressed here before, I tried searching the forums but with no luck. Thanks.

Is there any way to run a shortcut to a different drive in the public folder or do I have to physically copy all the photos into the public folder on my primary hard drive in order to make them available via the network?

I was thinking of renaming her local Windows 2K user profile and than logging off and logging back on as her so that a new local Windows 2K user profile would be created on that machine. I would than create her Outlook profile again and see what happens. Any other ideas? Again, she is the only user having this problem. The calendar is fine on everyone else's computer. Thanks for your help.

hi,

there are numerous ntuser files (ntuser.dat and ntuser.dat.log1 etc) in my public folder...

are they supposed to be there?

and are they supposed to be visable to other computers on the network?

they are protected system files and are set to hidden so are not visable to this or the other vista pc on the network, however their is a user with a macbook on the network and they are visable to him when he access my public folder...is this normal and are there security/privacy issues with this?

cheers

A:ntuser.dat files in public folder

Welcome
Those are registry files and should be well hidden from everyone.
I am concerned if your comments are, indeed, correct.
Update your anti virus and make a full scan
Download and make a full and updated scan with the free version of malwarebytes.

Under the windows 7 advanced sharing settings, i turn off file and printer sharing and turn on public folder sharing. So i get on 2nd maching running vista and navigate to my win 7 machine and try to open the computer to access JUST the public folder, but if FAILS. So i experiment. I turn file and printer sharing along with public folder sharing on and i am able to open my win 7 computer via vista machine and view public folder along with other folders i have set to share and printers. Next i turn off public folder sharing and leave file and printer sharing on, now i can access files i have set to share and printers, no public folder. HOW DO I MAKE IT SO PEOPLE CAN CLICK ON MY COMPUTER AND JUST SEE PUBLIC FOLDER...? OMG

A:trouble just sharing public folder

I have not tried it since we share printers on my network, but it sounds like the public folder sharing is dependent on the other, based on what you stated above. I did find this page, with links to other pages. I suggest looking around the MS site a bit.

I checked my network sharing center and network discovery, file sharing is on, and password protected sharing is off.

I checked the public folder, the icon has a lock sign on it, every time I try to change it from read only to write, it doesn't change but stays as read only

How do I change the permissions for my public folder with a lock on it?

A:Other users can't copy into public folder

The easiest way I know for this is to simply navigate to the public folder right click - properties - security
Then you'll have to give the guest or everyone group full permissions.

My Public Picture Folder is hidden as well as my photos. I am the PC administrator. There are two programs that are accessing the folder. The Cozi screensaver is showing my photos that I cannot locate. Also, Sony PlayMemories shows every folder in the Public picture folder, but each photo is locked, and when I try to export, it says I do not have access privileges.
 
What in the world is going on here? I can see my pictures and the directory via these two programs, but Windows Explorer does not show the folder or the pictures.

A:Public Picture Folder Hidden

Stop the Cozi screensaver and put up a different one. One that doesn't show pix. Reboot the PC. See what happens now. Let us know.

I have a problem in a lab on Dell Optiplex 745 computers. In this lab, there are 29 computers originally running Vista SP2. I cloned them with a configured Vista image made for this lab. After I cloned these computers, I discovered on 15 of them, the Public Desktop folder is missing. All of the other Public folders (Documents, Music, Pictures, etc...) are visible. This is happening to all profiles (Admin, teacher, student) accounts. It doesn't matter who is logged on to any of the 15 computers. This is NOT a single profile corruption issue.

I have Show Hidden files, folder, drives, and I unchecked the 3 Hide..... boxes. It doesn't restore the Public Desktop Folder.

I have tried use a REG file to merge the two together. Nothing.


I have tried to search (shellublic/desktop) for Public Desktop folder. Nothing.

I have restarted the computer.

I have tried to use a RESTORE POINT but it only goes back to 2 weeks ago.
I have tried to use the REPAIR option but that didn't solve my problem.
I am performing ALL of these tests under an admin account. Since there is student files on these 15 computers, I cannot re-clone these computers nor can I perform a repair on these computers. I don't want to risk the loss of data. There has to be way to restore the Public Desktop folder WITHOUT cloning or repairing these computers.

I have tried to logon to one of these computers as LOCAL ADMIN to fix the problem. Also, I have tried Administrator account to ... Read more

do u think it is safe to delete the entire 'public folder', if i had already safely disabled Win7's library system from my os? on the navigation pane i no longer have favorites & library.

just assume i will never want to touch library, will never have another user account attach to this pc, and never have this pc join any network.

A:cannot open public folder on network

On the XP machine with the shared folder do this.

Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

If you see this message the following should be done on the computer containing the shared files:

Download the following and install it

Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=4544

after installation is complete, click on: Start, All Programs, Windows Resource Kit Tools, Command Shell

Then enter the following commands. (Attention: they are case sensitive.)

net user guest /active:yes
ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

The first command enables network access for Guest, the two subsequent ones change two different policies to allow network access for Guest.

Can I compress the Public folder on my Windows 7? I do not have a network setup and I am the only one to use my computer. Would it be safe to compress this folder to save space?

thank you

A:Can I compress Public folder in Windows 7

I do not know if you could compress the Public folder but since I do not use it either, they are virtually empty.

I would gain nothing by compressing them.

What are you storing in yours?
