One piece of advice with this groupware stuff is that it must be something they will go into every day, or it will quickly have a fall off in usage. The groups we have been most successful with are ones that use it as part of their work flow (research) and have integrated applications into it. Also, make it part of their start up routines so it's in front of them everyday (even though I know many users desktops are a bit cluttered, this has been a very good way for us to get IM and Sharepoint usage up), Ken Leitman ________________________________ From: windows2000-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:windows2000-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Sorin Srbu Sent: Thursday, October 05, 2006 9:57 AM To: windows2000@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [windows2000] Re: Windows SharePoint Services Actually I found a solution for the issue I had, it was with mail not working from the sharepoint portal. It was a case of not paying attention the RTFM-law. I found where to set a mail-server after a while... Didn't see that the installer had created a second virtual server specifically for administration and on an odd portnumber. <slightly blushing> Do you guys use the Windows SharePoint Services v2.0 anything? I tried eGroupWare, an ASP-driven, well, groupware a few years back, but it didn't get any attention with the users. Now to try again with something looking a bit more flashy and easy to navigate, and that also looks a bit easier to administrate eGroupware. I saw a note regarding it on the Yahoo! Outlook Users-mailing list and decided to have a look at it myself. Turns out it does everything I want it too. Next to sell it to the users... The shared events and announcements parts alone, would make them go berserk with joy (or something) I think. Same thing with the wifey when I install Sharepint Services on our home-intranet - we always seem to miss or forget to add events and announcements to the paper-calendar in the kitchen leaving us both with a sense of (slight) irritation. ________________________________ From: windows2000-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:windows2000-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Jim Kenzig http://ThinHelp.com Sent: Thursday, October 05, 2006 3:46 PM To: windows2000@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [windows2000] Re: Windows SharePoint Services We are always willing to help where we can Sorin.
