Last Modified: 2012-05-08
The other day we started havign issues with users Outlook Anywhere and Smartphones. So I started digging into things and I found that the ExternalHostname in Exchange 2007 had been changed! We haven't done any work on the server or anything. Is there anyway that I could have been hacked or a virus changed this?? I took a look at the event and didn't see anything....is there any way I can find who/what made the change? We are running Exchange 2007 on Windows 2008 64bit
