- I googled and followed this useful guide. However, a couple of glitches remained:
- Connection to Incoming mail server fails if you really just put your username:
- put instead of firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Test send of email message through outgoing server fails if you just followed instructions:
- Click on button: “More” / tab: “Outgoing Server” / do check box “My outgoing server requires authentication ” and log on (I now prefer to be explicit, after the initial mixup of usernames for incoming and outgoing), enter your full email@example.com and password. No need to enable SPA, though.
- Viola (and quousque tandem…, sigh ).
- Which computers
- This I found on the Reception desk
- but isn’t that then also wrong on all student pcs which have the same base image?
- Which exceptions missing: I noticed immediately:
- www.uncc.edu should read uncc.edu
- Which browsers
- Example is IE9,
- But are others different?
- Problem: Since last week (or so; interestingly, only individual users seem to have been affected at first), we seem to experiencing regular (but not consistent) issues with meeting requests mostly
- Best so far: if you see the Firefox warning dialogue, check “do not warn again” and click on “continue”(?)
- we will try to look into common browser configuration (like popup blockers).
- Root cause: ?
- Firefox provides only this help on unresponsive script error;
- the slowness could be in the actual script, on the client, in the network, on the server…
- Resolution: ?
Also, it is easy to manage calendars by group calendars, e.g.
Creation of calendar groups is also easy via the outlook address book:
It is Outlook (Desktop) currently only (not Exchange 2010 OWA) that allows for High-level Reporting. And even here, there are limitations:
- Because cancelling from the calendar like in video2 here sends the meeting participants not only a (0)message, which includes a handy “Remove from calendar” button,
- but also – in case they fail to see the message – a (1) “Cancelled” indicator on their calendars,
- while third parties who want to schedule a meeting with the meeting participants, see those participants (including an Rooms that “participate”) as (2) free/available during the time slot of the cancelled meeting,
- as you can see in this example:
Becomes available after a long while:
What can I tell my users how long is the wait currently usually is?
