  • Odd Outlook 2003 problem after SBS 2003.

    As you may know, Windows SBS 2003 comes with a ConnectComputer Wizard that configures the domain settings and installs applications (Outlook 2003) on client computers.

    It does that just fine, but something really odd happens with Outlook:

    Whenever you want to receive a notification that the recipient has received or read the message, Outlook throws an error saying something about the date not being valid, and it doesn't let you change any other setting. You can't even close the windows, as the dialog box keeps popping up.

    Really weird.

    Can you provide the error message? Did you install SP1 for SBS 2003? Did you tried to disable the firewall on the client side?

      Hey,

      The error message says something like "Enter a valid date". This error pops up whenever you select the option to receive a read notification, or when you got to Calendar properties an try to change stuff, like wich is the first day of the week, work hours, etc.

      No, I haven't installed SP1 yet. I haven't diabled the firewall either. Do you think the problem resides there?

        Do the users have Admin rights on the computers they are logging in to?
        Has anyone implemented any special Outlook forms?
        TIA

          Yes, the users have admin rights and no, they haven't implemented any special or customized forms.

              The error message says "Enter a valid date", nothing else.

                    hey man

                    have you check if your computer date is the same as your sbs 2003 server?

                    ive had this issue once, just found out that the date and time was different from the server.

                        Well, you can find a screenshot here: http://img365.imageshack.us/img365/8478/dibujo3gx.jpg

                        It's in spanish, but you can get the picture. Let's say you go to "New email message", the go to "Options" and whatever you do there, if you want to close the options windows, you cannot. Outlook complains that some fields have invalid dates, rendering the application useless, as you can't close it unless you kill the process.

                        The date and time in the computer is the same as in the server.
