    Exchange Views (Office 2003)

    What does the "Automatically generate Microsoft Exchange Views" selection on the folder context menu mean?

    Do I need it if I'm not on an Exchange server? If so, what's it doing?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    What did a search of Google for <code>"Automatically generate Microsoft Exchange Views" </code>bring up for you? The fourth offering I get seems to bring up an answer to your question.

    As the name indicates, it is only useful if you're connected to an Exchange server. Otherwise, it has no function.

    Try a Google search for "Automatically generate Microsoft Exchange Views".

    Re: Exchange Views (Office 2003)

    Guys:

    I apologize... I feel pretty stupid. I use Google all the time for a lot of "stuff", but it never occurred to me that statements like that would be there.

    I'll know better next time.

    How come there's no way to have it default to "Off"? If you don't need it, why waste whatever resources or space that it does use?

    Or *Is* there a way to "default it off"?

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    If you are not connected to Exchange Server, this option has no effect whatsoever, so there is nothing to worry about. You don't need to clear the check box.

    Hans:

    OK, thanks...

    I did go looking in Google this time around, but found nothing.

    Seems a lot of the time, they'll tell you what a feature or item *is*, but not necessarily what the effects of use (or not) may be. And experimenting can often times be problematic, as I well know.

    Some of the minor exploring I do do is what can often end me up in some of my "situations".

    Thanks for the help.

    Regards,
    Chuck
