These are blogs for John Weber. One of my joys in life is helping others get ahead in life. Content here will be focused on that from this date forward. John was a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2018) - before that, a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). I used to write a variety of articles (that you can still find here on the tsoorad side) on technical issues with a smattering of other interests. I have a variety of certifications dating back to Novell CNE and working up through the Microsoft MCP stack to MCITP multiple times. FWIW, I am on my third career - ex-USMC, retired US Army. I have a fancy MBA. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.

Exchange 2010 public folder custom forms

Kudos to Dustin Rush, NAC Architecture

We are in the midst of an e2003-e2010 migration, and the customer has a custom contact form in the organization forms library.  Regular public folder replication created the requisite public folder structure on the e2010.  The custom form sort of worked in that new items in the contact list used the custom form, that data was intact, but viewing existing contact cards in the public folder reverted to the OOBE view.

Various efforts at enforcing the custom form from Outlook proved fruitless. 

Dashing Dustin found this tool (DocMessageClass) that allowed us to modify the object attribute for each of the contacts in the public folder.  The process took very little time – maybe 3-4 minutes for 10k+ objects.
