Some limitations exist in this release of Sun Java System Connector for Microsoft Outlook. The key limitations are:
Every distinct identity in the Directory Server (for example, users, resources, conference rooms) must have an email address. For more information, see Required LDAP mail Attribute
Arbitrary attachments in calendar events are not stored back in the server.
Rich text in the appointment and meeting description field is lost once the same calendar event is modified in the Communications Express client.
Message recall functionality is not available.
Description of events is not available when checking availability.
Sub-folders created under the default calendar folder are locally stored. The primary default calendar folder and other calendar folders are stored on the server.
Free/Busy lookup does not display TENTATIVE or OUT-OF-OFFICE color coding.
The properties for Sun Java System Connector for Microsoft Outlook cannot be modified using the Tools->Services option from the Outlook menu. To modify the properties:
Right click the Outlook icon and select Properties.
The Properties dialog appears.
Select Folders - < your user name> from the list of services.
Free/busy lookup using SSL is not supported. See Outlook Free-Busy Lookup and SSL
Installing Sun Java System Connector for Microsoft Outlook on Exchange servers is not supported.
The installer will not run if Outlook is in Internet Mode. In Outlook 2000, the Internet Mail Only mode can contain both a POP and IMAP profile. Those profiles are not upgraded or converted in to the Connector for Microsoft Outlook 7 2005Q4 version.
Recurring tasks are not supported.
During an offline session, if any item in a Calendar, Task, mail, or Contact folder is modified using Outlook, and then another client on the server is used to modify the same item, the changes made offline are lost when the user returns to online mode in Outlook. The changes made by the other client on the server remain.
When creating a new event in offline mode, the invitation is saved to the user's Outbox. If, while still in offline mode, the user opens the invitation, the invitation disappears from the Outbox once it is closed.
