Viewing Resource in Public Folder
by DevX Pro
I have set up conference rooms as mailboxes in Outlook 2000, which is working well but I have a few questions: Currently, we have to schedule the room as a resource before the "automatically decline conflicting meeting requests" works. Do I have something configured incorrectly? If you invite the "room" as a required attendee, it can be double-booked. Is there a way to display a conference room's mailbox as a public folder that users can access to see room availability, who has booked the room, etc.? I would like to have this happen automatically and I would like it to have a real-time display. Later, I would like to set up resources as a group (e.g., for a video conference meeting between two of our sites, I would like the room for both sites, as well as the video conferencing equipment to be just two selections in Outlook—one for each site.)

Broadcast Messages to Online Users Only
by DevX Pro
Is there any way in Outlook/Exchange to send out a message to all users currently logged on (like a network broadcast)? We currently send system announcements (such as for emergency outages) to all users by e-mail, which takes extra resources and clutters mailboxes for those who aren't even using the system.

When I use InetAdress.getAllByName(String host) on my workstation, I get two IP addresses. One is for the LAN connection and the other is for the dialup connection. I need to get the dial up connection's IP address because the LAN's IP address is only known by the local network. Is there a way to determine which IP is which? Are they ordered or something?
Outlook Web Access for Outside Users
by DevX Pro
Our company is using Exchange 5.5 as its e-mail server and Outlook as the base e-mail client. What considerations do we, as a company, need to be aware of in order to allow our consultants (all of them are remote employees) to have Internet e-mail accounts through our company using OWA and a browser? Are there special domain issues we need to address? What about global address lists and other shared items? Our home-office employees have a firstname.lastname@company.com e-mail address and we'd like our consultants to have the same thing.
Putting Another User's Calendar on the Outlook Bar
by DevX Pro
What is the easy way for a user to access another user's calendar (or any other folder in the mailbox)? With Outlook 97/98 you can use the not-so-user-friendly File > Open Special command. And with Outlook 2000 the other user's folder is a link under File > Open. But there must be a way to have the other user's calendar be a shortcut (or something) in the folderlist or on the Outlook shortcut-bar.
Creating Public Folders

The department I am in would like to have a kind of "posting" center for questions or a kind of "discussion thread" area only accessible to our department.

Is it considered a mailbox?
