  • Looks to be a very worthwhile document.
    (Am I allowed to say "pity it's not a PDF file"?)[Ducking]

  • Mike: You can say whatever you want =) I know there's some debate going on internally about which format to make documents available in, PDF vs Doc... I'm not sure what the reasons are on either side though. I'd be happy to pass along the feedback if you wanted to describe in more detail what you like about a PDF over a DOC.

  • I read with great interest the ability to use RSA SecurID with Activsync. I didn't think that was possible.

    Today we use the RSA agent on the ISA box, so we would like to continue with the same strategy (we want to stop all unwanted access in the DMZ).

    I think the only thing preventing us from getting this to work with ISA is the custom headers that are required. Is there any way of doing this on the ISA box?

  • This, the Transport and Routing Guide, and the Client Network Traffic white paper are all wunnerful.

    I'm left with a question that has come up on some of the mailing lists recently: it appears that message limits on incoming messages (store limits, user limits, and virtual server limits) are not applied until the message is fully received by the server.

    Is this true? Is there a way to change this behavior?

    Thanks

  • Michael - no, sorry, there is no way to change this right now, the message must be full received before the restrictions are applied. It is being investigated for the future though.

  • PDF vs Doc: I prefer PDF as well. I hate when I click on a link to open a DOC, then I have to wait for Word to open, then change the display mode to print view or web view, then it prompts me to save changes when I close it, and so on. Also, it often happens I think I've changed focus and start typing something, then look back and see I've added text to the document. With the PDF you click on it, it opens up and you're done.

    Plus, if you're at a public terminal, they may not have Word or the Word viewer on the machine, but they generally always have Adobe Reader installed.

  • Scott - actually, I prefer DOC for the same reason - I hate waiting for acrobat to load. There's a decent chance I might already have Word loaded, and Word doesn't do the auto-update-check and Acrobat just seems to take a long time to load. Plus, I can't think of the last time I was at a public terminal, but that's just my usage pattern.
