SBS And Exchange 2003 Email

Jun 29, 2009

I have a client with SBS 2003 and exchange. They had a bad HDD (it held the exchange .edb and .stm files).

I installed the new HDD, configured Exchange to use the new HDD for the files but I did not mount it when it was done because I was in a rush.

I came back into their office first thing in the morning and mounted the volume. However, they did not get any emails during the night.

My question is: The emails that were sent to them, are they gone forever? Did they get bounced back to their senders? If not, can they be recovered?

Windows 2003 + Lightweight Exchange + Atom

May 3, 2009

if anyone has put Windows 2003 x64 on an Atom and installed a very light duty Exchange server on it...

I know the Atoms are not the most powerful thing in the world, but they are a cost effective and energy efficient alternative to past generation hardware.

Since the Atom benchmarks slightly better than a P4, I am wondering how it would hold up with an Exchange server.

Licensing :: Windows 2003 And Exchange Server

Feb 28, 2008

if I have a dedicated server with WS2003, would I be allowed to install my own software (with license)? such as MS SQL Server - I have an MSDN subscription and multiple licenses.... would this be ok to do so?

What about Exchange Server? I have a License for that also...again, MSDN subscription

Troubleshooting Tips On IIS6 And An Exchange 2003 Server

Jan 30, 2009

Customer wants to move his website in-house along with his email. The hardware guy installed a windows 2003 64-bit exchange server. I logged in with logmein and created a directory c:Inetputwwwroot hewebsite. Copied iisstart.html to the new dir. Put the company name in the iisstart file. Opened IIS6. Went to properties of the default website and pointed to the new directory on the home dir page. Added iisstart.html the Documents page and moved it to the top. Closed everything. Opened Internet Explorer 7 and put in http://localhost. All worked well. Brought up the new start page. Opened IE7 on my pc and put there ip address in and it also brought up the new webpage (tested the port 80 in the router). Said we were ready to go.

The hardware guy sent me an email stating that he was having problems with the 64-bit version and took the server back to the 32-bit version of windows exchange server. I logged back in with logmein and followed the same exact steps as above but it will not show the new webpage. Am getting a page not found error.

I have done the above on several 2003 servers and several xp pro machines. Always works.

Have done one 2003 exchange server. Went to a couple of those servers and made sure the default website settings were exactly the same as the ones that work. Still no help.

Downloaded an iis6 troubleshooting program from microsoft but cannot locate the error. I have been studying the II6 documentation and 2003 exchange server documentation. Went thru all the tutorials in google on iis6 and exchange I can find no help.

Windows 2003 SBS + Exchange, Offline Address List

Mar 31, 2007

There was a black out recently and our UPS didn't kick in properly. The server was turned back on and the workstations logged in the domain controller. When running Outlook I noticed it wasn't receiving any emails. I tried to open an old message and it said:

"Can't open mail"

Also I tried to delete one of the spam messages and it came up with an error some thing like cannot delete and it may be moved some where. Outlook came up with errors like:

Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server' reported error (0x8004010F) : 'The operation failed. An object could not be found.'"

I also noticed some Calender events won't open. I now suspect some thing wrong with Exchange. I googled around and it seem to be related to "Offline Address List" problems. I tried a registry fix:

"Create DWORD "OAL post full if diff fails" CurrentControlSetServicesMSExchangeSAParametersOAL post full if diff fails' and setting it to 1 on this server. When OALGen next generates the offline address list, clients will perform a full OAB download. After that time, the registry key should be removed to prevent further full downloads."

Restarted the server then went to Exchange System Manager, Recepients, Offline Address List and right click on Default Offline Address List then clicked Rebuild. I checked Event Viewer again and saw some error messages:

WARNING: OALGen encountered an error while generating the binpatch.oab file for differential downloads of address list 'Global Address List'. Clients will not be able to incrementally update to the new version of the offline address list, they will perform a full download instead. This is normal if this is the first time this offline address list has been generated. Check other logged events to see if this is a serious error.

Exchange Converting Email To Htm

Mar 25, 2009

I have a slight issue that some of my emails are being converted to a htm file and attached to the email. I am using exchange server and outlook.

For example if I received an email and it was converted into a htm file and the body of the email was deleted so only the attachment existed which included the email.

There is no trend to this as sometimes it happens and on other occasions it doesn’t.

Besides this when I receive a read receipt many of these are converted to a normal email. I know this can happen from the senders side but I know for sure that some of the read receipts received should include outlooks read receipt icon although this is not happening. Is this something to do with exchange or my outlook installation.

Exchange/Push Email Query

Oct 25, 2008

I own a small company of 15 people who are all based remotely at their own homes throughout Europe.

Most of us are based in the UK and our web hosting server provide our email and web hosting service but we do not have an exchange server with them.

Now most of my colleagues own blackberry's which i just dont get on well with and I have my eyes set on buying a windows mobile device with Push email, namely the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1.

Anyway my query is this:

How do i go about getting exchange included to my hosting setup? Can another company host it or do i have to transfer my web hosting and email hosting to another company which facilitates exchange as well?

Exchange Server - POP 3 Connector To Direct Receipt Email Config

Nov 28, 2006

I have a 2003 SBS server with about 50 users on exchange. It is a standalone DC - all the users connect with 'profiles' and 'docs' on the server and use exchange thru outlook..when they leave the office they VPN in and exchange works like a charm.

Problem is for a quick setup I've used the POP 3 connector and kept the emails hosted on my server - I want to get rid of the POP3 connector setup altogether and have mail delivered directly to the server.

Can someone give me a walk thru of steps to do this - so far I have fgured out that I have to add the domain to the recipient policy - configure it properly and then setup each user to receive email for that username and it will just work....

I want to be sure and was hoping that someone who has done the same thing could point me to an accurate tutorial of sorts.

CPanel, Windows 2003, Email, DNS

Feb 7, 2007

I have a W2k3 server with only one domain, it's manually configured in IIS and DNS locally on the box, and I don't want to put a mail server on the 2003 server. I also have a *nix box running cPanel. I was wondering if there is a way to just set my MX record to teh cPanel server so that I can get mail there.

The only problem is, I'd have to add the domain in cPanel, right? Is there going to be any issues with this if the DNS information for the windows domain isn't pointing to the cPanel server.

WS Domain & Exchange

Mar 6, 2008

Windows Questions

I WILL be install WS2003 EE R2 on a dedicated server.

However, I will make this into a DC/AD so I can install Exchange and serve the system as a Webserver. All that's fine

But the question during the creation of an DC props up.

I have 2 domains. I will also have 2 dedicated IP's.

Now, lets say I have domains and

1) Would I Install and configure DNS on this server? Remember, this is a dedicated server located in a datacenter somewhere with their infrastructure in place.

2) Would I need to configure anything in the LAN settings? Should I just leave everything to automatically detect IP and DNS Servers? (No other computer will be joining this domain)

anything else I should be aware of?

ok, now I have those domain names, I would need to update the DNS Records from the web hoster right? So I would need to update the NS records (The place I purchased the domain from)


Now, since I will be creating several user accounts here, these user accounts will be for email addresses.

1) Is it possible to have 2 domains on this 1 exchange server? I'm guessing not? (I dont have knowledge about exchange)

2) What about configuring an exchange server? How would I say create an email address like ""? So this email account would then be able to send/recieve email?

Exchange Server

Jan 11, 2008

Just today we started having some problems with our exchange server...everything was working fine until around 10:00 A.M this morning.

We've started getting sporadic reject messages from people that we have always been able to email in the past.

These are a few of the NDR's we've received.

There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's email server.
Please contact your system administrator.

< #5.5.0 smtp;550 not local host, not a gateway>

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

Spot Marketing on 1/11/2008 12:39 PM

You do not have permission to send to this recipient. For assistance, contact your system administrator.

< #5.7.1 smtp;550 5.7.1 Unable to relay for **" ******>

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

*****" *** on 1/11/2008 9:24 AM
There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's email server.
Please contact your system administrator.
< #5.5.0 smtp;530 authentication required for relay (#5.7.1)>

Theres more as well, but that pretty much sums up the main issues I said, these were working fine for the last year, until today. No changes have been made on our exchange server.

We have GFI Mail essentials installed with SPF records turned on.

We have reverse dns setup through Time Warner Telecom for our IP.

I can send email to my hotmail address, but yahoo rejects it.

I've checked and and we're not on any blacklists.

I'm not exactly sure where else to look.

These mail servers rejecting our email are not from just 1 ISP or 1 mail server, these are from companies in different states/countries.

Exchange Hosting Or Something Else

Aug 18, 2007

I've seen various companies offering Microsoft Exchange hosting but I'm not sure if this is what I need to go with or not. Let me explain what I'm wanting to do and maybe someone can give me a yay or nay on it. I have a desktop and a laptop running Outlook that I would like to be able to sync together with a web-based server. I also have a Treo 750 cell phone that I want to have my calendar and tasks synced as well with the web-based server.

For example: I add an appointment on my desktop computer and it syncs with the web server. When the web server gets it, it syncs to my cell phone via ActiveSync. Right now I'm using the free version of Mail2Web which doesn't support Outlook syncing. (I have to manually enter the data on the website interface and then it will sync via Activesync to my phone.) They do have a paid version starting at $11.95/mo that will supposedly do what I'm wanting to do with Outlook, but I'm not sure if this is overkill for what I need or not. Again I don't really need to sync email, just my calendar and tasks.

So do I need a full blown exchange hosting provider or is there some software (other than Exchange) that I can install on my Windows VPS that will do what I'm looking to do?

Exchange 2007 Kerberos

Oct 24, 2009

does anyone have a fix for the Exchange 2007 kerberos issue when connecting Kayako to Exchange via pop3 or imap?

kayako says:


The reason for the error you are getting is a bug in MS Exchange 2007. The exact reason is, Exchange server falsely advertises that it support Kerberos authentication even when it is configured not to use Kerberos. This causes the fetch request to fail from PHP as PHP-imap always tries to use Kerberos first.

The workaround to this issue is either to use a different mail server or compile PHP without Kerberos support(in that case it will simply ignore Exchange's erroneous behavior regarding Kerberos).

If possible you may setup a secondary mail server (Non exchange 2007) and forward the required emails there and configure help desk to fetch the emails from the secondary email server(non-exchange 2007) instead of your Exchange server 2007.

Domain And Exchange Hosting

Jan 1, 2009

I'm currently with 1and1 - obviously they suck - no need to belabor that here. I've been resisting a hosting switch, but the outages are more and more frequent, and my website is my livlihood. Need recommendations for web/MySql hosting and also hosting for a single Exchange account. Does not have to be the same company. Price is not a huge issue - I'm willing to pay for quality. Requirements are basic; about 3-5 GB of file storage, SQL 4 and 5, linux server. Shared server is fine. Any recommendations? Don't really trust the "review" sites.

Some kind of moving assistance/support would be GREAT. I've managed to muddle through and set all this stuff up over the years, but am not at all confident of my ability to move it all without screwing up. Includes 3 active databases, several sites, SSL cert (currently purchased through 1&1 but it looks like they farmed it out to geotrust), and exchange mailbox.

Exchange Features Becoming Standardized

Jan 10, 2009

This has been a topic that has been slowly developing without too much in the way of discussion. Exchange has been the killer email solution now for years - it's integration with Outlook, its sleek webmail and support for mobile devices and push email is almost unbeatable. THe only problem is your stuck in a windows environment and have killer licensing costs associated with the priveledge of using it.

We run a web hosting service down here in New Zealand where the market isn't quite as cut throat as in places like the US and that is reflected in prices. Hosted exchange accounts sit around $30NZ per month per email inbox, quite high considering our median income is around $30,000NZ.

I think this has priced the service out of the rich of small/medium sized businesses and as a result many people here don't know of or use the features which could radically improve their email experience.

<< removed >> after days of searching I came across Smartermail and its support for syncml. << removed >>

From what I see, it seems that the collaboration and integration exchange has such as in calendar/contacts/tasks is becoming standardized accross mail servers.

Do people think that in the future these features will become a standardized feature of most mail servers?

Unlimited Exchange Mailbox

Nov 20, 2008

i was pinged a few times asking why dont we support unlimited Exchange Mailbox where as lots of providers do.

I took the question to our Product team and here is what they shared with me, which i thought to extend to my friends here...

1. The primary reason for not having an unlimited mailbox size is the possibility of runaway mailbox growth. There are several scenarios, such as a Denial of Service attack, an auto-reply rule storm, a runaway automated process, or some other unforeseen event that can generate hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of email addresses to a single mailbox (or group of mailboxes), having it grow to astronomical proportions (100’s of gigabytes) in a very short time. We have seen this happen multiple times that we come in to help clean up. A runaway email box (or boxes) can quickly and easily expand to consume all of the available storage and resources of the mailbox server, and severely cripple availability for all other users of the system. (This impacts ALL customers on the hosted environment)

2. Secondarily, if we allow unlimited mailbox growth and the customer is charged for storage, this can result in an unexpectedly large bill.

3. Some providers who claim to offer “unlimited” mailbox size are actually offering an “arbitrary maximum” mailbox size. If you dig into their SLAs they state that there is a “functional limit”, which they do not define, and they also state that mailboxes should not be used as archives, which implies that if/when users reach this undefined functional limit, older items are the ones that get deleted/purged. So, none of our competitors actually offer unlimited mailboxes, just undefined, arbitrary mailbox limits.

4. As an Exchange mailbox gets larger, it becomes more and more difficult for a user to manage and use. This issue applies regardless of server configurations or resources – it is a matter of the complexity of having the Outlook client manage multiple gigabytes of mailbox storage and the corresponding tens or hundreds of thousands of individual messages.
