Exchange "Subject: Relayed" report in foreign language.

Hi

I have just completed installing a new MS SBS 2008 running Exchange 2007.

The client machines vary from Win XP, Vista and Win 7.
Outlook ranges from XP, 2003 and 2007.

All users request deliver and read receipts with each outgoing mail.

3 of the users (all 3 on Win XP with Office XP) are receiving the “Relayed:” report in a foreign language – looks like Chinese, Japanese or a similar language. If the message is forwarded the recipient receives it in English.

Very irritating as I can’t find any differences between the machines. 2 of the machines are still using the original installation and added to the domain the other 1 has been completely reloaded.

My client will not upgrade to Office 2003 or 2007 as he is happy with what he has. The pc’s have never been on a domain previously. It was a workgroup with each machine popping mail and some shared folders.

When you say "each machine popping mail and some shared folders" do you mean they are using POP3 to get there email?

Yes Rick
Each machine was using pop3 to download mail individualy. I now run Exchange using the pop3 connector to download mail and deliver to individual mailboxes

Why are you using POP3 at all with Exchange?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

This is how I was taught to set up a SBS box. From my reading I realise there are better ways of pulling mail. For the moment I will stick to doing it this way. I will, when I get the time, look into the other (better) methods.
Never had any problems with it either - so for now I will leave it that way.

Try creating a new profile on the Client Machine. Control Panel / Mail.

I have worked with Exchange since version 5.0 and have never hear of anyone saying POP3 is the best way to get your mail from an Exchange Server. It has always been there but not as the primary means of retrieving email.

I will try creating new profiles when I return to the client early next week.
I don't use pop3 to get mail from Exchange, rather to download mail to Exchange from the ISP.

I see.

It is funny you mention that I was invited Redmond back in the late 90's and told them that is what I wanted to do then they racked me over the coals for retrieving mail into the server like that. I could not understand when they got so upset but then I went back and and started to use Exchange in the way they taught me it has been much better ever since.

It should work fine the way you have it. I assume you have it that way for SPAM filtering or the Exchange box does not have a continues connection to the internet?

Internet in South Africa is never continuous. Probably why my mentors chose this method.
I should really look into the correct methods.

If you server's connection to the internet is not continuous you have the correct method in place.
