MS Exchange server issue

Q: MS Exchange server issue

The office is running Windows 2000 server and MS Exchange server with approx. 6 machines connected. When anybody in the office e-mails, the recipient is getting a different looking e-mail address than the one it is coming from. For example, if [email protected] sends an e-mail the recipient sees the e-mail coming from [email protected]. When the recipient tries to reply to the e-mail they get a "non-deliverable" message. What could be the cause of this and why would it be happening to everybody in the office at the same time? Thanks.

Preferred Solution: MS Exchange server issue

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: MS Exchange server issue

Look at your user settings in Active Directory. Generally, email accounts are the same as the user name unless you set it up manually or set up a policy that creates email accounts in the format you mentioned.

we're running out of room on our exchange server and want to prolong it's life before we upgrade to exchange 2003. if we run ESEUTIL.EXE, will them "compress" the priv.edb file?
does anyone have any suggestions?

A:exchange 5.5 server space issue

Is there a problem getting a larger hard drive? You will definately need a larger one once you upgrade. Another option would be a second hard drive and move the databases and log files to the new drive. this will also boost your performance a bit.

Hi all. I have a 123 gig hard drive on a windows 2003 server with 3 gigs of free space. all user's documents and desktop are redirected to a different drive, but the drive hold our exchange sever and the network profiles.

When I look at the properties, there's 3 gigs free, but when I analyze with Win Dir stat, it shows exchange is eating 50 gigs and, well that's it. I assume this is because windirstat doesn't have the permissions to read into the profile's folders, but I've opened a few (by taking ownership of past users) and the profiles are only 20 megs or so. I'm wonder where my other 50 gigs went.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

We've been having intermittant issues with Outlook 2007 "not responding", hanging up, freezing...whatever you want to call it....after weeks and weeks of troubleshooting...today I have narrowed it down to the belkin 54g wireless router.

I did this by finally taking the router out of the mix and could not cause the outlook 2007 to lock up again...thought it could be a lan cable...tried both cables in that mix from the DSL modem to the computer without the router and it still worked fine.

Hooked back up the router and managed to lock it up again...SO...all that being said is there a setting or someting on the router that I may be missing or something that someone knows about that I do not?

BTW, if this matters at all...we have a second computer that is also running outlook 2007 attached to the same hosted exchange server and it's having no problems at all.

Previously we looked at any problems with ost and pst files, ran Outlook diagnostics, etc to no avail - the router is the only problem that I could find.

The computer this is running on is an XP and all firmware is up-to-date on the router and all updates for MS office have been made.

I am desperate, if anyone can help, I would be most appreciative and would be willing to pay if someone can fix it.

A:Network issue with outlook 2007 and exchange server

It sounds like you have a flaky router. You might just need to replace it. If it works without it and you plug it back in and it breaks again it's the only explanation. If you have another router somewhere try switching them. Hope this helps.

Running an exchange 2010 server.

I have a number of users who's email will disappear.
Mail will return if you disable any type of sorting filter.
However will disappear again if you change folders.
This will effect any folder not just the inbox.

I have tried the following.

Recreating the profile in Outlook 2007
Deleting the pst and ost files
Adding new sort field and removing it.
Disabling cache mode.

I have not preformed an office 07 repair yet as did not think it would have any impact.

This is effecting about 10% of my users.

Thank you for your help.

I am receiving errors when trying to add a Microsoft Exchange account to Outlook 2011 for Mac. I am running Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. The HUB\CAS servers for the EWS both have the Basic Authentication enabled. Below are the steps I have completed:

Setting up Exchange Email Account with Autodiscover

After setting it up with autodiscover I receive the below error message:
I made sure that my user name and password were correct 4 different times and kept receiving this message.

Below is an image of the advanced properties of the exchange account in Outlook 2011. The Microsoft Exchange Server and Active Directory Server prefix are both the same (https://domain.org) and the Microsoft Exchange directory path ends with .asmx
At one point, Outlook 2011 connected to the Exchange Server 2010 and downloaded my entire email box. It was syncing and said Connected to "Exchange Name", while the Mac was connected to the wireless network inside the building. Of course, the email is not going to work outside the building on a different wireless connection, unless there was a VPN connection.

Why is Outlook 2011 for Mac cutting in and out of the exchange server? Any ideas?

In Exchange 2000, as in Exchange 5.5, a public folder is a storage container for messages or information shared among all users in your organization. Public folders can still contain different types of information, and they are still part of the information store that Exchange clients and Web browsers can access. Now, Microsoft Office 2000 and custom applications can also access Exchange public folder stores. You can open and save documents directly in the public folder stores.

then I’ll give ISA server access to the inside network with

Hello everyone:

We have an Exchange server running Windows Server 2000 and we Blackberry Enterprise Server running on a seperate server. We are getting ready to upgrade our Exchange server to Windows Server 2003 and have run into a snag with a test user we created. We created the new account on our old server and then moved the users mailbox to the new exchange server. When we did that the BES recognizes that the user has moved servers but it doesn't send or recieve messages to the handheld.

Any ideas on what the problem might be?

Most obvious way would be to check what is running on the server, otherwise check your settings in outlook and see if you receive/send mail from pop3/smtp or if Exchange Server is listed.

Hi All

I have a question about Microsoft Exchange server
we are currently using Exhange 5.5 to manage our email (and the same server also acts as our domain controller)

We have a second server running SBS 2003 which runs our sql database (M1 erp)
which requires a lot of grunt

we have done this to lesson the workload on the SBS server and provide redundacy
which has worked well, we are how ever receiving a lot of spam and are looking at options
i beleive we should update the local Pc's to the lastest version of Outlook which provides much better filtering as a start
Would we gain from changing to the SBS server Exchange in reducing the spam as i am not so sure, how ever others say yes so i would just like peoples thoughts on this

Hello everyone,
Here's a question about Exchange server 5.5 that I'm hoping someone can help me with.
I installed Exchange 5.5 with the Internet Mail service. It seems that when I send mail out to the Internet that I cannot get delivery and read receipts that I requested using Outlook 2000 client. I do get them, however, when I use mail to people inside my LAN.
Here is the message I get from my ISP, which I use as my mailhost:
"As part of the delivery process, your message was relayed to a machine tha does not not handle delivery status notifications. As a result, it is not possible to determine whether the message will get to its final destination.

Please reply to [email protected]
if you feel this message to be in error.

Before Exchange, I was using a program called SL Mail for my Internet mail and delivery and read receipts worked fine----using the same mailhost.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
