Outlook 2010: The reply of Calendar invite from Secretary went to Executive instead of Secretary

Problem: Secretary has right to send invite from Executive's calendar, but all the responses come back to Executive's inbox which is not desired.

Solution: add secretary to Outlook Delegates of Executive

Sang: Got error of "The Delegates settings were not saved correctly. Unable to activate send-on-behalf-of list. You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object." while trying to add secretary to the delegates.

MS KB: following this KB, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2593557 to edit the registry has not fixed the problem. Read closely in the Cause section and found out another possible cause, The SELF object does not have the Write Personal Information right on your Active Directory user object. Corrected it and worked!!!!

Make Xerox Color to print in Black and white by default

We like to make Xerox DocuColor 252 to print Black and White by default on all print job.

I first went to printer IP interface, change the PS in PDL configuraiton to GrayScale in color mode. It did not achive what I wanted.

The better approach is to configure it on the driver of printer server level, and clean up the drivers on client level:

  • Go Printer Properties on printer server

  • Advanced tab, printing default, make necessary changes, here we set colorwise to Grayscale

  • Go to Printing Preferences, change colorwise to Grayscale too

  • Open a notepad on print server, print and check the preference of that printer to see if the change maintained

  • On Client: Remove all printer drives for that model. then

  • On Client: go to  Print Server Properties, remove that printer from Drivers tab and Ports tab

  • Re-add the printer driver on client

  • Open Notepad on Client and check the printer preferences
