SharePoint Lists Automatically Appearing in Exchange RRS feed

  • Question

  • How do I disable SharePoint lists from automatically being created in Exchange, and stop Outlook from trying to sync with SharePoint lists? We are running SharePoint locally only at the office; when employees go home and use Outlook it is now asking them to log into the SharePoint server.

  • I have a strong sense that all of these are questions for Outlook/Exchange and not for SharePoint.

    1 "How do I disable SharePoint lists from automatically being created in Exchange"

    Something you need to do in Exchange.

    2. "and stop Outlook from trying to sync with SharePoint lists?"

    clearly Outlook   (how to stop Outlook ...)

    3, when employees go home and use Outlook it is now asking them to log into ...

    It's Outlook doing the asking so this too is an Outlook question

    I'll even add a fourth question myself.

    4. How to block the creation of copies of SharePoint lists in Outlook?     (No copies; no sync problems!)

    Again though this is an Outlook question.

    -------------------------------------

    Now that that's established it's clear that whoever you ask will also need to know which Outlook ((2007; 2010 ; 2003)) and for Q1 which Exchange.

    But I would ask this question complex in an Outlook forum as that's where most of your questions are.

  • It would be useful if you would say which SharePoint List is automatically being created.

    I've used WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 with Exchange/Outlook systems and the only List that has been to my memory created in Outlook was one I specifically created myself.

    If it were creating Lists automatically you would imagine that all lists would be automatically created - why stop at one - and that certainly never happened.

    So maybe this is a particular type of List (and maybe the connection to Outlook was done (specifically) long ago (when testing?) and is now haunting you (?)).

    Any details you can give us as to which kind of List might help someone out there come up with the reason.

  • Not all employees are using Sharepoint. We are testing Sharepoint right now and for the users that are trying it out, it is automatically creating a Sharepoint list in Exchange on Outlook. We do not want Sharepoint to be automatically creating any lists to be synced in Exchange at all. Is there a way to configure it from the management server to not create the Sharepoint lists to be attached to Exchange accounts? I understand how to remove the SharePoint lists through Outlook but I'd rather they not be added in the first place.
