Exchange 2007 OOF again
Posted on 2009-04-25
I am struggling to get OOF working on my Exchange 2007 PC. The symptoms are slightly different to what it was usually discussed: I can successfully set up an Out Of Office status (both in Outlook or OWA), but the OOF messages are not going to any recipients.
I tried to check several instances and found out two problmes:
1. I can not see Syatem Attendant mailbox. I created it with ADSIEdit as it was sugested, run a mailbox cleanup cmdlet, sent a message to it - but still does not see it in Exchange Management.
2. When trying to do test-outlookwebservices I am getting a 5008 eror message when trying to contact SA - i.e. logon failure. I checked the address it tries to contact - and this looks pretty normal. Moreover, I can easily logon to it with browser (using exactly the same url as in test-outlook webservices output). Can it be that OUtlookWebServices is providing wrong credentials?
And, besides of that - Exchange management console reports, that HTTP cxomperssing is enabled in several instances, while the whole site in IIS has it disabled...
Thank you for help.
