Mac client DNS problem

Post by Rich Gran » Wed, 11 Dec 1996 04:00:00

  I had the same problem on some Macs the didn't have entries in our DNS
server. I just put a entry in the hosts file in the system folder to
resolve the problem. If your using Open Transport check to make sure its
using the right host file. <My Wasn't>

1. Contacts, Public Folder Contacts show as messages on Mac client and PC/Mac Web access

We have an Exchange 5.5 Server and are having problems with the Macintosh
Client 8.2. The Contacts as well as Public Folders which contain Contacts
