MOSS 2007 SP1 Servers in Farm


I have a MOSS 2007 Server on SP1, and we recently installed a new Exchange Server (2010) to replace the Exchange 2007 Server.  

I need to update the Servers in Farm for the Outgoing E-mail server, which is currently pointing to the old Exchange 2007 server, so no emails to calendars are being posted.

Can anyone guide me through this?

In Central Admin - Operations - Outgoing Email, just update your address.  

Under Operations - Servers in Farm, if the old one is still listed, you can click "remove".

Hello Ach1lles

This appeared to work really well and was very straightforward.  The document libraries are receiving emails, but the calendars are not.  Could this be a propagation issue?  


Justin SmithSr. System EngineerCommented:
No, shouldn't be a prop issue.  Are the libraries and calendars in the same web application?

Yes, all are in the same webapp...still no appointments being accepted on Calendars, but doc libraries are fine. Doesn't make sense to do an iisreset since some emails are going through and others are not.  I'll check the email server for those calendar accounts.

Achielles - thanks for reminding me to update this question solution.

This was fixed by doing the following on the DC - In AD Users and Computers, there is an OU with the WSS contacts.  Under the properties of the Calendar contacts (that were not receiving emails), I updated the following advanced settings:

•      internet Encoding = 1310720
•      mAPIRecipient = false

This fixed the issue.

Interesting.  I thought that only prevented attachments from coming through.

So did I...Until I applied the fix, then the emails started being delivered to the appropriate Calendar List (no attachments).  It would be helpful if the KB included this scenario as well since it fixed this issue.

I did a search on this issue and found a KB that was close to my issue, and when I applied the KB, it resolved my issue.  Another user pointed me in the correct direction as far as changing the server names, but it didn't resolve the emails not making it to the calendar lists.
