I just upgraded to Exchange Server 2003 from Exchange Server 5.5.  I haev some post instalaltion questions:

1. I use to have my mailbox as the admin mailbox.  so, my address was "administrator@mydomain.com".  Now, I have my mailbox as "myname@mydomain.com".  The problem is that now, a lot of people that are trying to e-mail me have my address as "administrator@mydomain.com".  How do I get mail bound for "administrator@mydomain.com" to my new address, "myname@mydomain.com"?

2. I use to have a buch of mailboxes that weren't attached to any active directory accounts in 5.5, sort of stand alone mailboxes.  Now, the only way I know to create a mailbox is to have an active directory account created first.  Does every mailbox have to have an active directory account?

3. How do I enable SSL for Outlook web access?

4. How do I create global distribution lists?

Hi,

1.What you can do here is place a forwarder from administrator@mydomain.com to myname@mydomain.com so that any mail which will come to administrator@mydomain.com forwarded to your mailbox.

Forwarder can be put by going to Active Directory Users and Computers snap in and searching for administartor mailbox .Go to Exchange General Tab and Delivery options.Here you can specify forwarder.

2.You need to create AD Account for all the mailboxes in AD.

3.Check this:

Are you able to see administartor@mydoamin.com address in AD?

If no then you can assign secondary SMTP address in your mailbox as administartor@mydomain.com that will also work.

I can see it, I just can't edit it.  I can't open a mailbox for it, because when i click on "exchange tasks" for the administrator account, all it will allow me to do is delete all exchange attributes.  I try to add the address "administrator@mydomain.com" to the account with "myname@mydomain.com", but Exchange won't allow it.

What you can do here is remove all exchange attributes for this administrator AD Account and then create mailbox for this by again going through Exchnage Tasks.

All the suggestions you made worked great, Thank you.  Some additional questions, if you would be so kind:

1. In OWA, one has to type in https://www.mydomain.com/exchange.  Is there a way I can remove the "/exchange" part of the address?

2. When the OWA login comes up, people have to type "domainname/username" as theiruser name.  is there a way that I can just make it username?
