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.

Let's say I've bought a domain called "mynicedomain.org"

Now I want to have a mail service. Let's say office 365 or gsuite so I can have an email address called "ben@mynicedomain.org"

Beyond that I want to buy a web hosting (like GoDaddy) service to serve "http://mynicedomain.org".

Maybe I also want an intranet service hosted by AWS virtual machine at "http://wwwin.mynicedomain.org".

Can this be accomplished? If so how it works? Who is going to be nameserver for my domain?

We have a monitoring device that is wanting to send emails for alerts and is going to our SMTP server but is failing to be passed through. States "client does not have permission to send as this sender".  Would i have to put this into office 365 to pass through or would i have to set up permissions in AD?

Hi guys

I have just been given resposebility of an old Exchange 2010 single node installation. Current patch level is 14.3 (Build 123.4) which is SP3 no CU´s

I want to upgrade it to the latest CU which is 17. Can i jump to 17 directly ? Or do i need to break it down into more steps ?

The guy who was responsible threw on only Windows patch and therefore also .Net 4.7 which is not compliant if i look at the compliance matrix. So i will take that off before i plan to upgrade to any CU

When i have upgraded i want to make a Hybrid configuration. From Microsofts documentation i read that this i easy like on Exchange 2013. Just that the configuration is done from the Exchange admin console on the cloud this downloading the migration tool to the on prem Exchange server and Executeing it from the on prem server. Anything i need to worry about on an Exchange 2010 Hybrid configuration ?

We have Office 365 in a hybrid environment with an on-prem Exchange server. I would like to make the Archive Folder available to employees if they are using the Outlook 2016 client, but disable the Archive folder if they are accessing mail remotely through Outlook Web Access. Is this even possible? A way to disable both would be OK as well. I want Office 365 to continue to store the mail, but just not make the archive available to the employee unless there is a need. So....for example, after 90 days, messages get sent to Archive and they are still associated with the employees mailbox, but not where they can readily see the folder under their mailbox.

Hope this makes sense. Thanks!

I am adding some Exchange 2016 mailbox servers. What's the best way to prevent them from routing internal email until a later time?

Ever since we switched our companies email from in-house Exchange to hosted Exchange (Office 365) all of a sudden it's like the floodgates opened and users receive phony emails masquerading as being from Microsoft or Office 365. These emails most times have a link that asks user to login. The message in the email can vary greatly but here are some examples:

Your Office 365 subscription has an unresolved change. To keep using your Office 365 without interruption, please sign in now.
Your Office 365 account will be closed today
Office365 Storage Limit Exceeded
Storage And Low Disk Space For Microsoft Office 365

It as if Hackers\Spammers have a list of all the domains and email addresses hosted by Microsoft and spam us constantly trying to trick users.

Is any way to stop this or at least slow it down?? I have all filters set to aggressive. There must be someone reads this that knows what I am talking about.

Please help!

Thanks,
Steve

Hi!

Want to use Outlook as a Project Management tool.

Here’s my idea: create a category - Medieval Woodworking Tools Show.  MWTS  

As the project proceeds I’ve got emails that come in. Categorize them MTWS.  Appointments I set, categorize those.  Contact I make - the same.  Tasks, too.

Takes 3 or 4 months to set up this show.  So by now I’ve got elements of the project across every category of Outlook - mails, appointments, contacts, tasks.

I can use Advanced Search to do an Across All Categories search based on Categorization. (Thanks Bil Prew!)  But, I’d need to drill down through the search dialogue each time I wanted to do that.

Is there anyway using User Defined elements - or any other method - that I could create a freestanding search that would autopopulate based on the MWTS category?

I was thinking of something like Customize Current View, but that I could build based on a Category?  So I could just one-click that view and right away get a cross-category list of everything that currently has the MWTS categorization tag inside Outlook.  

This way I wouldn’t have to run the Advanced search and set all the criteria each time (risking some left out criteria) to find everything.  I’d have an on-going collection of everything related to the project.  Something I could just quick click to get to.

This would be especially great when one …

Hi Experts,

I'm in the process of migrating from Exchange 2010 on SBS 2011 to standalone Exchange Server 2016 on Windows Server 2016.
I'm having problems with mail flow from the old Exchange 2010 Server to the new Exchange 2016 Server.  This is what I've got so far:
  • Exchange 2010 users send and receive to the Internet ok
  • Exchange 2010 users send to internal recipients within Exchange 2010 ok
  • Exchange 2016 users sends to recipients within Exchange 2010 ok
  • Exchange 2016 users send to recipients on the Internet ok
  • Exchange 2010 users cannot sent to Exchange 2016 users (mail sits in queue)
  • Exchange 2016 users cannot receive from Internet

Any mail sent from a mailbox on Ex2010 to Ex2016 sits in a queue named "hub version 15" with a status of Active.  If you suspend the queue you may see and error message  but I can't make it do it now .. it normally just sits on Active.

I've attached the logs from the SMTP Receive connector on Exchange 2016 which report "TLS negotiation failed with error TimedOut" so I can at least see it's something related to SSL, but I'm a little stumped where to go from here.

In an aid to debugging the logfile attached:
Exchange 2010 Server = SBS2000.somedomain.local, 192.168.16.2
Exchange 2016 Server = SRV-MAIL1.somedomain.local, 192.168.16.9

Thanks

I have an exchange 2010 / o365 hybrid setup.

I have an internal SMTP relay that applications use to send out mail.

It has stopped sending outside of the organization. I have done a million things. but i just removed, and recreated it. It will deliver email to the o365 mailboxes, but nothing external (gmail, yahoo..etc)

I did run the following after i created it:

Get-ReceiveConnector "Anonymous Relay" | Add-ADPermission -User "NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON" -ExtendedRights "Ms-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Recipient"

It ran without error.

I also made sure the IP's of my device are in the allowed list. and that it accepts anonymous users.

I can telnet to that server on port 25 and send a message. there is no error.

any help troubleshooting this would be greatly appreciated.

For some reason texts that I receive on my Sprint PCS Galaxy S8 cell phone are also being delivered to my Office 365 email account.

The only reason I can think that this is happening is because I have entered this cell phone number as the recover number for my Office 365 account. I am also an Office 365 global admin.

i also have this same Office 365 work email account setup within the built in email application on my Samsung Galaxy S8.

What is the process for me disable these cell phone texts from being delivered into my Office 365 email account?

When a user within our organization sends a certain Power Point file as an email file attachment using Outlook 2016 the email arrives in the recipients Inbox but the Power Point file attachment is no longer attached to the email.

We believe this is happening because Office 365 detects malware or some other type of problem with this Power Point file attachment. This file attachment is well within the file size attachment quota limits.

The sender doesn't receive any type of notification saying that the file attachment has been dropped or quarantined and the persons receiving this email don't know that the email was supposed to have a file attachment.

What can be done to change this so that if Office 365 ever drops a sender's file attachment the sender will receive an email notification that the file has been dropped or quarantined?

Is it also possible to make it so that the persons receiving this email will also be notified that the email they have received has had the file attachment dropped or quarantined?

So I am using phpmailer using smpt and it is going thru postfix to send emails. When I send a email from my email it goes thru without a problem when it comes to using DKIM and DMARC. But when I send using phpmailer Im not getting a DKIM. My questions really is if im using smtp and opendkim is setting the dkim.  Do I have to tell phpmailer the dkim info. Im not sure if I just need to tell phpmailer the selector.

my code is this:

         function send_email($to, $from_email, $from_name, $subject, $body, $is_html=false, $attachments=null) {
      global $smtp_host, $smtp_port, $smtp_user, $smtp_password;
      try {
            $email = new PHPMailer(true);
            if ($from_email === $smtp_user) {
                  $email->isSMTP();
                  $email->Host = $smtp_host;
                  $email->Port = $smtp_port;
                  $email->SMTPAuth = true;
                  $email->Username = $smtp_user;
                  $email->Password = $smtp_password;
                  $email->SMTPSecure = 'tls';
            }

            $email->CharSet = 'UTF-8';
            $email->From      = $from_email;
            $email->FromName  = $from_email;
            $email->Subject   = $subject;
            $email->Body      = $body;
            $email->AddAddress($to);


            if ($is_html == true) {
                  $email->IsHTML(true);
                  $email->Encoding = 'base64';
            }

            if ($attachments != null) {
                  foreach ($attachments as $attachment) {
                        $apath = $attachment["path"];
                        $aname = $attachment["name"];
                        $email->AddAttachment($apath , $aname);
                  }
            }

            $email->Send();

Hi there,

By mistake I have created Mailbox database on D:\drive instead of E:\drive on same server. Need to move the database from one location to another location without user impact and Transaction log files as well. Please assist me on this.

Please see : Two nodes we have(Active and passive) and how to move the databases within DAG. These are in Exchange 2016.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi all,

We are in the process of migrating Exchange 2010 to 2016.

We are currently in co-existence. When we are finished, is it a good or bad idea to give the new Exchange 2016 the same local IP address as the old server?

This would for example be a easy as we have a lot of devices like scanners on our network using this local IP address.

Thank you!

my postfix relay was working as of some weeks ago, then all emails relayed are getting bounced. my ip assures me that they have all restrictions set to off.   eventually i want to get my own email server so i do not have to rely on 3rd party relays.

Oct  9 07:46:15 culser postfix/smtp[18331]: 2836819C628: to=<someemail@hotmail.com>, relay=smtp.rcn.com[69.168.97.78]:25, delay=0.43, delays=0.02/0.01/0.24/0.16, dsn=5.7.1, status=bounced (host smtp.rcn.com[69.168.97.78] said: 554 5.7.1 [P4] Message blocked due to spam content in the message. (in reply to end of DATA command))

it is giving a 554 message blocked due to spam. my system is not sending spam,
anyway the relay was working and now it is not working.

do you need the main.cf file ?

please help

linux email relay has stopped working

in the log it reads
Oct  9 07:46:15 culser postfix/smtp[18330]: 21FE619C627: to=<circleconect@gmail.com>, relay=smtp.rcn.com[69.168.97.78]:25, delay=0.44, delays=0.03/0.01/0.26/0.15, dsn=5.7.1, status=bounced (host smtp.rcn.com[69.168.97.78] said: 554 5.7.1 [P4] Message blocked due to spam content in the message. (in reply to end of DATA command))

the relay i am using in postfix is the smtp address. i am getting a 554 error apparently. i pay for IP service thur them but they say they have no restriction. maybe it is a setting in postfix s

i need someone's advise who has knowledge of Linux, postfix, relays, and email servers.
