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.

We are upgrading from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016. In order to prevent issues with Autodiscover, etc. I am considering creating dedicated deployment AD sites. Question: Am I required to have a domain controller within this AD site? I am referencing the following article: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/exchange/2015/11/18/exchange-active-directory-deployment-site/

We are migrating from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016. I am planning to deploy the first mailbox server. Does anyone have a checklist of items I need to watch out for and what I need to do, like Autodiscover, free/busy, URL changes? Thanks.

Hello, could you please recommend a good reporting solution for Exchange 2016/Exchange 2013? I would like the product to be able to perform mail flow analysis including message rate, top delivery destinations, etc. Thanks.

So Google has failed me :)

I have a shared mailbox in Exchange 2013.  It works fine with out and in mail.  The other day one of my users used the mailbox to send a message, and it appeared to work.  But when she got emails that the receivers never got the email, she tried a second time from her persoanl account, and found it being rejected for file size.  The File size is NOT the issue, but the fact that the rejection message send from My excahnge MBX server, was either never sent to the shared mailbox, or never received.

I am still pretty new to exchange.  
  1. Does anyone know what is going on?  
  2. Is there a way I can trace a message to see all the logs assochiated with it??

Hi Experts, AFAIK there are 3 ways to anti-spam to an Exchange 2016 environment: SPF, DKIM and DMARC

I can configured SPF record on domain control panel but not sure about the 2 others, does anyone have experience with them? Can we configure them on Exchange mailbox server, or public DNS of ISP?

Many thanks in advance,

Hi All,

Can anyone here please let me know what do I need to do in order to successfully cutting over the Anti Spam solution from onPremise Linux VM into the Cloud Solution with no data loss or user email flow interruptions?

As at the moment on my Exchange 2013, the Send Connector Smarthosts listing the local IP address for the 2x Linux VMs.

Do I just change it to the Public IP address of the Cloud Anti-Spam provider ?

Note: My Public DNS server is running on my On-premise Windows Server 2008 R2 VMs.

Thanks,

I have another issue where internal users are not receiving delivery delayed notifications.  When running some of the tools on MX toolbox I get two errors SMTP banner mismatch and the other which I am lost at is SMTP connect failure.  When I go under out external DNS settings the STMP server address what pointing to secureserver.com which we don't use I set it to SMTP.mydomain.com would point to mx.mydomain.com but I am getting the failure and the resolution point to our website IP when running the MX tools even know I changed it.  Do I need this SMTP records to point the the MX?

Hey all. Nice easy one for the Exchange experts. How do I enable DSAccess diagnostics logging in Exchange 2010 and 2013? and see the list of DCs exchanges uses for LDS lookup?

 I remember back in 2000 days we'd run exchange manager (might be wrong name) to see the diagnostics tab and also have a look at the DSAccess tab to see whether exchange had been hard coded to look at particular domain controllers but how is all that done these days? Anyone know?

Thanks for looking

Hello, my 99MB webmail allowance is totally full.  I logged into webmail and tried to delete some mail but I'm getting errors whatever I do (error in the title of this Question).  The webmail is with fastshosts.  I gave them a ring but they were limited in how they could help because I don't have the Control Panel details for the hosting - I'm trying to get hold of the original web developer for those details but having trouble!  Fasthosts said that there was a way of permanently deleting mail for the webmail (rather than moving to Deleted Items) but what the lady suggested didn't work.

My Deleted Items are already empty.

Do you know any way that I can delete some of these emails?  D'you know how I can permamently delete (i.e. without going to Deleted Items)?  I just need a quick fix for now because at the moment I can't receive any emails at all!

Thanks.

We're seeing an issue on both of our Exchange 2016 Edge Transport errors where some transport rules will execute properly, however some won't. Regardless, whenever a transport rule is fired off, we see the below error. Has anyone seen this before? This is Exchange 2016 CU6.

Please provide me with resources that explain how to fully administer an Exchange 2013/Office 365 environment.

Starting tomorrow I will be working in an Exchange 2013/Office 365 environment running on Server 2012/Server 2012 R2 and need to know where to go to complete basic and advanced email administration.

Is most of the email administration done within the Exchange 2013 environment? Or in what times do things need to be done within the Office 365 console?

I'm already used to administering an Active Directory environment that is synced with Office 365 and am aware that most of the administration is done within Active Directory Users and Computers on the local server.

Will this also be true in an Active Directory/Exchange 2013/Office 365 email environment? Will most of the administration in this case be done through Active Directory Users and Computers and within Exchange 2013? Or what administration and tasks will need to be done through the Office 365 website console?

Migrating Your Company's PCs

To keep pace with competitors, businesses must keep employees productive, and that means providing them with the latest technology. This document provides the tips and tricks you need to help you migrate an outdated PC fleet to new desktops, laptops, and tablets.

Hi everybody,
I have set up an Amazon SES account to send my transactional mail. It looks like working good.
But I need to track remote server response of each of email (when it is send, delivered and accepted by the server)
In this document they suggest some alternatives http://docs.aws.amazon.com/ses/latest/DeveloperGuide/monitor-sending-activity.html

Thru the alternatives I gave a try to  Amazon CloudWatch. Cloudwatch started giving me some information at the overall but not at the email detail (delivery time, etc)

Anybody can help me in this issue?
Thank you

For mass mailbox backups in Exchange, you should be using a proper backup and recovery system. See my post, PSTs are not reliable for that purpose.

I dont know what happened

Using PHPmailer 5.2.0

I cant set the from address in my emails: (I could last week)

$mail->IsSMTP(); // telling the class to use SMTP  
$mail->SMTPAuth      = true;                  // enable SMTP authentication
$mail->SMTPSecure = $sec;
$mail->SMTPDebug = 2;
$mail->SMTPKeepAlive = true;                  // SMTP connection will not close after each email sent
$mail->Host          = $smtp; // sets the SMTP server
$mail->Port          = $port;                    // set the SMTP port for the GMAIL server
$mail->Username      = $usuario; // SMTP account username
$mail->Password      = $pass;        // SMTP account password
$mail->AddReplyTo ($replyto);
$mail->SetFrom  ($sender,"Admin");

Open in new window


No matter what $sender has it forces the from to be the Username. I think it is a server issue but cant figure out what

Any ideas?

One of my clients sent me this email. Is this a legit email? I can not figure it out for the life of me! Or is it spam? Urgh, these small things.. It could be nothing at all. They were having some hiccups with their email so I was wondering. We are in the process of transferring the domain from host gator to WIX, so I was not sure if I needed to update anything with Office 365 after the domain is transferred.

 Thank you!Screen shot of email

How to migrate Exchange 2007 public folders and Public calendar to Exchange 2010. Preferred as simple as possible first time trying to do this. The more simple the better for me at this time. Its kind of scary if I loose everything, even though we have backups. I might as well turn in my resignation in if that happens. I am hoping for best on this one.    

We moved at the email accounts over and it was successful. But confused on how to move the exchange 2007 public folders and calendars over to exchange 2010.
