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.

Hi

We use VMware and have exchange 2007 and due to some exchange database corruption. Going to clone the exchange server and want to run run Eseutil /P and Eseutil /D on the server during this weekend.
The total size of the Mailbox database on the exchange 2007 is 365 GB,

The Memory on the exchange server is 18GB
CPU:
Number of virtual sockets =4
Number of cores per socket = 2

Please can you let me know how long it will take to complete the both Eseutil /P and Eseutil /D.
Do I need to run ISINTEG as well.
The free space on the drive where exchange mailbox database located is drive is 800GB and hope this space is ok.

Any help would be great and thanks .

I am having a customer that is attempting to email us and is getting an error on their email servers.

Connection for delivery was deferred by "my.mail.server"
 and they are getting a 4.4.2 error that is coming from my mail server

Mail server is running postfix, but I do not see this particular email address in the logs. I see other email addresses from the same company successfully show up in the logs, but not this particular one.  Client is putting additional pressure to figure out root cause.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Dave

Hi,

I have a question regarding Exchange Online (Office 365) and Sendmail on Fedora 20.

Client is migrating some users to EO, and current setup is as following:
MX points to OnPremiss  Sendmail
Few users have mailbox on EO
All users have mailbox on local server, even those migrated to EO.
There is a forwarder in each user mailbox (users who are migrated to EO) to forward email to domain.onmicrosoft.com, so that they receive email in EO mailbox.
Exchange is configured as Internal relay for domain.com
There is a send connector that uses on premises  as smart host, only for domain.com
SPF is configured with both outlook.com and mail.domain.com (on premises record)

Internet --> OnPremiss server --> forwarder in mailbox to onmicrosoft.com
Exchange Online --> Send Connector to On Premises
Exchange Online --> default connector to send to internet

What happends is that few times a day, users who are on Exchange Online, when sending only to OnPremiss users, receive Undeliverable error. You message to <onpremissuser@domain.com> couldn't be delivered. Security or policy setting at <domain.com> have rejected you message. The recipient email server wont accept your message because it appears to violate their security or policy settings.

And if you send mail again, it will most likely pass. Log is something like below:

Apr 26 09:58:03 mail sendmail[31805]: ruleset=check_relay, arg1=mail-he1eur02lp0181.outbound.protection.outlook.com, …

I have set up a project and triggers in scripts.google.com, as below

function cleanup() {
  var delayDays = 1
  var maxDate = new Date();
  maxDate.setDate(maxDate.getDate()-delayDays);
  var label = GmailApp.getUserLabelByName("Inbox");
  var threads = label.getThreads();
  for (var i = 0; i < threads.length; i++) {
    if (threads[i].getLastMessageDate()<maxDate)
      {
        threads[i].moveToTrash();
      }
  }
}

This works ok when on the inbox and the label created by me 'delete me'. However I can get the same script working on Sent items and Trash. see below

function cleanUp() {
  var delayDays = 1 // Enter # of dys before messages are moved to trash
  var maxDate = new Date();
  maxDate.setDate(maxDate.getDate()-delayDays);
  var label = GmailApp.getUserLabelByName("trash");
  var threads = label.getThreads();
  for (var i = 0; i < threads.length; i++) {
    if (threads[i].getLastMessageDate()<maxDate)
      {
        threads[i].moveToTrash();
      }
  }
}

Is this something to do with the label names for sent items and trash?

Thanks

I have a cpanel account and email accounts.

It forces emails to be sent with the from as the user (with smtp) I know there is a way to let me set up any from regardless of the user. I just can't remember how

Any ideas?

Is there a way to use an on-prem Exchange 2010 server as a mail/smtp relay for Office 365 in a non-hybrid setup? I have a client who is wanting to migrate to Office 365, we are doing thins and its a very straight forward process for us except they have almost 100 appliances that all need to send email, such as printer scan to print, their phone system, and several other things of that type. They do not want a hybrid setup or to deal with the remediation process that's involved to get their system setup for it. What we and they are hoping is that we can use the current exchange server as a relay for these appliances without having to create a user account and buy a license for each. Part of the issue is the client doesnt have the time or IT man power resources to touch all these machines and update them, second is the additional cost for the extra license in O365. Sadly everything I've been able to find requires the appliances have a full user account or the on prem server be in a full hybrid setup. Is this accurate or, hopefully, have I missed something?

My Server
Exchange 2010 EX01
Exchange 2016 EX02

I try to create a new public folder on the Exchange Server 2016.
In this situation, you receive the following error message:
No active public folder mailboxes were found. This happens when no public folder mailboxes are provisioned or they are provisioned in 'HoldForMigration' mode. If you're not currently performing a migration, create a public folder mailbox.error message:

I was wondering if anyone could help to find the best backup system for Office 365 emails. Or even if I need that, I am worried if some body double deletes an email there is no way on office 365 to restore. Any idea??

Thanks!!!

Dear Wizards, I have a question regarding the mailbox of a user. Our quota is 50 GB and hers is full. Can I export her mailbox from Administrator Shell command, but only for a pre-defined timeslot? For example: only from 2015 to Dec 2017. We'd like to reduce her mailbox size, since we cannot increase hers anymore.

Is it the optimal solution? Can you please suggest more? Many thanks!

Hello everyone,

Once again, asking for help. I set up a distro group with external email address. When I email the group internally from the domain, it works fine. but if I email the group externally, I get a bounce back. The rejected server is coming from my server. I did set up the group to send to internal and external emails.

*Note: We did upgrade from exchange 2010 to 2016 a month ago and the group is set to send internal and external emails. Not sure what is the causing the issue. Could it be a receive connector

I’m using a script in asp to send email via CDOSYS. Works well but I’m sending in “from” with a hotmail address that has the name of the person perfectly configured inside hotmail details. Now when the mail arrives in the name of the from appears perfect the email address but the name changes like strange things that is not the name configured in hotmail details. For example a name of a person sometimes is vitamin, matchs, and so on... Why arrives like that (changing to strange things) the name of the persons on the hotmail from email?

For example I have a text like this:

to: anyemail@gmail.com
from: otheremail@hotmail.com
subject:This is a test. 

This is a final test

. 

Open in new window


On that txt Imcopy to pickup on IIs dir and how can Imforce to send a name on the from and also on cdosys?

Hi Guys,

I'm having an issue migrating exchange 2010 to 2016.

I'm on the phase that had exchange 2016 setup and coexists with 2010, but when I try to send emails from a new mailbox in OWA, it failed both internally and externally. the emails will just sit in draft. the new mailbox does receive emails either.

so far I only created an internal relay connector and everything else is default.

im stuck here, any suggestions?

I need suggestions for companies that host websites along with email pop accounts. Features I must have are:
1. 7/24/365 telephone support.
2. "Handholding" to transfer my small present website and all the email accounts that are associated with my domain name.
3. The host company must allow Filezilla to ftp information to my new site.
4. Ability of the host company to realize that not all people are internet experts and willing to provide information to utilize their services without exhibiting a demeaning attitude when I don't know the answer to a particular question or situation.
5. NO extra charge for additional email accounts. Go daddy seemed like the perfect answer to my requirements but then advised me of a ten dollar charge each year for each email address! I use 20+ email addresses to sort out who is responsible for spamming me then just simply delete that account and establish more email accounts.
6. The reason for all this is that I was with IXwebhosting and they sold my account to another organization that cannot or  will not answer simple questions directly and now have NO phone support. No phone support does not work for me.  I spent 90 minutes on chat simply to get my account unlocked and a transfer code provided to me to switch companies.

Suggestions Experts?

Does Thunderbird know about Two Step Authentication?

I use Does Thunderbird but feel it has a bug with Two Step Authentication. iCloud and Zoho are easy to configure for Two Step Authentication, and both work. Then, for some unknown reason, both have failed.

Do I need a different client?

I really hate needing to log onto my web clients...I have so many email accounts.

Thanks.

I have a small customer that has Email accounts for all their employees but they have one Email account where they have all their billing sent (with attachments) then it is forwarded to all of the employees.  The problem is that this account can grow large - fast - and the maximum setting I can have is 4000MB on the accounts.  I can move their account to the next level but that will only increase the mailbox to 6000MB.  What other options could I do?

Hi All

I have the following scenario. Appreciate your assistance

I have migrated from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010. Exchange 2010 details Update Rollup 19 for Exchange Server 2010 SP3 December 19, 201714.03.0382.000

The users in outlook have contacts as their default address book. There is a combination of outlook 2007, outlook 2010, outlook 2013,outlook 2016.

What we want: We want all outlook clients to have Global address list as the default. Currently after checking users i have found that  the default is contacts, suggested contacts or all contacts in users address book.

What is the best way to accomplish this for around 1000 users

I would like to all emails to be sent out with a default signature and company logo attached to all emails. In the old days we would use a third party product to do this; is there anything within Exchange 2013 server that can be used to achieve this?

I am in the process of setting up proper SPF and DKIM records and have a question.  We are currently use the domain mycompany.com and have also created the subdomain shop.mycompany.com.  Using a CNAME record, the subdomain, shop.mycompany.com, is pointed to our ecommerce store hosted with BigCommerce.  The transnational email messages, such as order confirmations, are sent from Big Commerce's servers.  However, BigCommerce is set up to have those transnational emails appear as if they are coming from info@mycompany.com.  

I am assuming that I need to have the DNS spf record on my web host for the domain mycompany.com include the BigCommerce mail server(s).  Is this correct?  

When logging into BigCommerce, our server settings also have some DNS records, including an spf record which is set as:

Type - txt
Fully Quallified Host - shop.mycompany.com
Value - "v=spf1 +a +mx include:_spf.bigcommerce.com -all"

I am assuming that since I am not sending any email out under the shop.mycomapny.com domain that I do not need to do anything to the spf record with BigCommerce.  Is this correct?
