XWEB: Error Message: Unknown Error. Try Simplifying Your Search

Article ID: 249500

Article Last Modified on 2/26/2007



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q249500


SYMPTOMS

When you attempt to search for a user name from the global address list by using the Find Names dialog box in Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA), if you enter a space, you receive the following error message:

Unknown error. Try simplifying your search.

CAUSE

OWA returns search results that include all users in the global address list because the space is considered to be a wildcard character.

WORKAROUND

Narrow the search for names in the global address list by specifying characters in the Search field.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server.
