After you install Site Server 3.0 Service Pack 3 (SP3), you can no longer query a text (.txt) file attachment that is contained in an Exchange Server public folder.


This is caused by a change in the way attachments are searched.


To work around this issue, replace the version of the Exchci.dll file from Site Server 3.0 SP3 with the version created in the backup directory when you install SP3.


A supported fix is now available from Microsoft, but it is only intended to correct the problem that is described in this article. Apply it only to computers that are experiencing this specific problem. This fix may receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by this problem, Microsoft recommends that you wait for the next Site Server service pack that contains this hotfix.

To resolve this problem immediately, contact Microsoft Product Support Services to obtain the fix. For a complete list of Microsoft Product Support Services phone numbers and information about support costs, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

NOTE: In special cases, charges that are ordinarily incurred for support calls may be canceled if a Microsoft Support Professional determines that a specific update will resolve your problem.

The English version of this fix should have the following file attributes or later:
