Within Internet message handling services (MHS), a message transfer agent or mail transfer agent (MTA) or mail relay is software that transfers electronic mail messages from one computer to another using a client–server application architecture. A MTA implements both the client (sending) and server (receiving) portions of the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). The terms mail server, mail exchanger, and MX host may also refer to a computer performing the MTA function. The Domain Name System (DNS) associates a mail server to a domain with mail exchanger (MX) resource records containing the domain name of a host providing MTA services.

Hello,

I was informed that Public Folders are not accessible by users system that aren't part of the domain. I have a user that gets her email by setting up Microsoft Exchange Proxy settings (Outlook Anywhere) even if her system is not logged into our domain. This user has an account within our domain and OWA works great if she wants access to Public Folders, but on her system which again is not logged into our domain since it's at her home, doesn't list Public Folders.

How can I use Role Based Access Control in Exchange 2013 to allow for users outside of our domain accessed to Public Folder without third party tools?

Thanks,

Hi,

I'm currently working on a remote access project. There are number of third parties that will be accessing our environment remotely. These remote third parties require access to some of the shared mailboxes in our Exchange 2010 environment. Can they just access the Shared Mailboxes from Outlook without having a Mailbox themselves. If not do they require a personal Mailbox?

Hello,
Does anyone know how I can fix this issue with our Exchange 2007 on Win2003 server?  Beginning early this morning all connections from outside our LAN are lost or down on our Exch2007 Hub Transport server.  After checking all services it came down to restarting the DHCP client service and the Hub Transport server is back online.  It is very sporadic and I can't seem to find out how to fix this.

Outside email stops arriving and I'm unable to access the Exh2007 server via iPhone or OWA.

Thanks,

Hello!

I run my own HTTP, SMTP and DNS server on a local box. I have LAMP, Postfix and BIND9 on Ubuntu to be exact. Everything was great, except that the e-mail which was sent from my mail server often got rejected by the remote SMTP servers due to lack of correct rDNS (PTR) record (basically, I never bothered to ask my ISP to update it for me, so it was a generic one). So finally I did it. My ISP updated rDNS record for an IP address that I use for all the servers (they all are together on one physical computer). So an IP resolves to the hostname of my mail server, which is:

mail.mysite.com

When I do reverse DNS lookup with "nslookup" command, by FIRST choosing Google's DNS server (8.8.8.8), then I get the correct hostname. But when I use my own DNS server, I get servfail error. Right now every server of mine seems to be working correctly. I haven't seen anything unusual or some problem with anything. So should I just wait for the DNS propagation (my ISP updated an IP about 6 hrs. ago) OR is there anything I personally should update either in my DNS server's settings or something else maybe?

Looking to free space in my gmail inbox but don't want to delete. thinking from two options;

1- download all emails older then 5 years to the hard drive in a readable format
2- forward all emails older then 5 years to a different email address.

then delete them from the inbox.

How could I accomplish this?

We have a single exchange 2013 server that started with a single default database (DB01). We've had corruption issues on that database and have moved all the user mailboxes to a second database (DB02). For the last few days, DB01 has been finding corruption while indexing, dismounting DB01, creating a new instance of the database and running for a bit until it hits corruption, then repeating the cycle.

This cycle started a few days ago when there were still several mailboxes on DB01. I disabled them and recreated them on DB02. All user mailboxes are now on DB02 but DB01 could not be reached, so it may still see them as active on DB01. Not sure if that is relevant.

Exchange seems to be working ok for users other than the public folder calendar being unavailable. Flailing DB01 shows as mounted in ECP but with content index failed.

The real question is what is to be done about the system mailboxes still on DB01 if I can't connect to them to move them? Can they be manually recreated on DB02? What are the options if the default database with all the system mailboxes become unavailable?

Thanks for any assistance.

Concerned about blacklisting.
Do I need to setup an SMTP server?
On VPS or dedicated?

I also use other hosting. I am expert. Looking for Godaddy, but also generic answer.

Hello -

I have a system that is outside our network and is not part of our domain. Client is running Office 2010 and I have setup the system with Microsoft Exchange Proxy settings and client is able to send/receive email. The issue is that I created a Public Folder within Exchange 2013, however client is not able to see public folder. The public folder is accessible within client's OWA. Are Public Folders accessible if client is not part of domain and client is using Microsoft Exchange Proxy settings?

Thanks,

Hi,

I'm working on a new project and need to create and add a new temporary Mailbox Database in an existing DAG in Exchange 2010. This will be a Single Mailbox Database Copy DAG and will used for importing PST files into the Exchange 2010 environment as part of an existing migration project.

Do you know the correct procedure step by step for this?

The environment is Windows 2012 Hyper-V  /  Exchange Server 2013

I have a mail database on a VHDX drive with the database log files located on another separate VHD.

I am currently NOT performing any jobs (Move mailbox .etc..)  however the log files are growing at a rate of 22Gb per hour.

This was not happening during the evening and has only just started when staff arrived at the office and opened Outlook.

How is it possible to find out what is causing the Log files to grow?

All the outlook users have Cache mode enabled.  Is it possible that this is caused by synchronization errors?
Most mailboxes are over 10gb.  Largest mailbox is 19Gb.
There are 28 mailboxes on this database.

Hi All,

My newly running Exchange mailbox server 2013 SP1 is now running fine after migrating from multi roles Exchange 2013 SP1 CAS- MBX running on Windows 2008 R2.

So what's the step so I can decommission this old Windows Server 2008 R2 without impacting the email flow for all users during the business hours ?

Do I need to prepare anything to do after hours ?

Hi all,

I'm trying to do a mail migration in a slightly odd way.  Here's my scenario:

1) Existing SBS 2011 server is on site still active.
2) Existing user profiles are on site, still active
3) I've changed all external DNS records for mail to flow though an Office 365 like service (activesync/exchange)

My plan was to back up all the mail accounts from the user profiles (done), then proceed to create new outlook profiles for the users and connect directly to the external server for mail.

Issue is Outlook 2013 / 2016 client computers are constantly trying to autodiscover to the on site server, instead of my new external server.  In other environments, I have no issues with autodiscover working on this platform in the way I have configured it (office 365 standard).

What link in the chain am I missing here to get the local computers to stop pinging the local server when configuring mail as a different user profile?

Cheers,

one of our clients have said that they cant receive emails.  when we investigated this we noticed a lot of the emails that bounced back were all using blacklisted IP addresses for their emails.  the strange thing is these blocked emails are gmail emails/hotmail/365 emails.

below is a bounce back which is received when you try and email the client, we have checked the clients WAN IP and domain and thats not blacklisted.  it seems to be OK sending out just receiving.

"I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.

For further assistance, please send mail to postmaster.

If you do so, please include this problem report. You can delete your own text from the attached returned message.

                   The mail system

<Helen@xxxxxxxxxx>: host mail.xxxxxxxxxx[78.141.47.203] said: 550 5.7.1
    Recipient not authorized, your IP has been found on a block list (in reply
    to RCPT TO command)"


does anyone know of any issues going on in the tech world that could be related to this?

Hi All,

I’m in the process of migrating the mailbox from one Exchange Server 2013 Sp1 to another 2013 Sp1 (no-DAG) using the batch migration PowerShell.

I can see it from the Exchange Control Panel website, there is the batch process migration status, however, I need to mount and dismount the mailbox database in the new server due to removing the quota implementation, what’s the impact in pausing or STOPPING the batch migration which caused the migration process to become SUSPENDED ?

Can I still resume it again after mounting the mailbox Database in the destination server ?
What’s the impact to the users when the migration process is STOPPED or in the SUSPENDED state ?

I’m not going to delete the migration batch (by clicking the bin icon) since I need to get off from the old server to the new server.

Any help and comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Sometimes clients can lose connectivity with the Lotus Notes Domino Server, but there's not always an obvious answer as to why it happens. Read this article to follow one of the first experiences I had with Lotus Notes on a client's machine, my now good bipolar friendly software.

I have one client that cannot email me.. They receive a bounced back message saying;

550 Verification Failed
No such user here
Sender verification failed

I can however email them. But they cannot reply.

None of their emails from their domain raywhite.com will come through, however I have been guaranteed from my ISP (crazy domains) that there are no blocks on my end. However i do know of another company who are with crazy domains are experiencing the same problem with the Raywhite.com server  

As I run my ow  business, my only option is to change hosting companies in the hope that works.

Would love an easier fix

I am performing the Exchange 2003 to 2010 migration.  They are currently running in coexistance with some user mailboxes on 2003 and some on 2010.  I am unable to connect to active sync externally from my phone.  I ran Exchange Remote Connectivity Analyzer and get the following result:
Testing TCP port 443 on host myserver.mydomain.com to ensure it's listening and open.
       The specified port is either blocked, not listening, or not producing the expected response.
Anyone know what the problem might be.  It matched matches my external URL on Active Sync.  I have an A Record for the host name to my external Static IP.  I have the Firewall setup to allow the External IP to redirect to my internal IP

Hello All,
I need some advice, and Expert opinion.
We need to move Exchange 2013 to new hardware server.
Existing instance:
We have a hardware server (Dell PowerEdge 2950) with Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard and Standalone Exchange 2013 CU14 Build Number: 15.0.1236.3 Server Role: MultiRole.
The server is in a domain that is part of a forest of 30 domains, this domain is not the forest root domain but this exchange server in main for all domains in forest. Let's call it contoso.com Server name mail.contoso.com
New instance:
Hardware server (Dell PowerEdge R720) with installed Windows Server 2012 R2. Server name new-mail.contoso.com
My question is which transfer scenario will be the best and less complex?
I thought to deploy a new clean exchange installation and then move all mailboxes to a new server. But I have no experience installing two exchange servers in the same (domain) environment. How can the installation of the second server affect the whole infrastructure?
Or maybe there are more correct transfer scenarios?
Thanks to everyone who can advise and help.
