  • Outlook not updating free/busy information to server

    Hi, I have two users whose free/busy information is not appearing correct to other people. Restarting outlook fixing this problem. Again this problem is not consistant, it is appearing very randomly. I am not suspecting any problems with exchange servers free/busy folder replication because, restarting outlook fixing the problem and for other users it is working fine.

    Any one know why outlook is unable to update free/busy though it is configured to do at every 15 minutes interval?

          Have you tried rebuilding their Outlook profiles?

            Outlook 2003 SP3
            Exchange 2003 SP2
            Windows XP SP2

            All are running with latest patches. I tried to rebuild outlook also. But the problem remains.

              FYI, Office 2003 SP3 is not the latest patch. SP4 has been out for quite some time now. Ditto Windows XP SP2 - SP3 has been out for a while.

                SP4 for Outlook 2003 looks like it's only for BCM installations. Can't find a SP4 for Office 2003.

                  Hi

                  Have you tried running "Outlook /cleanfreebusy" switch on the PC/Users experiencing the problems?

                  It has not resolved my issue but it is recommended for outlook calendering instabilities .

                  Good luck...
