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.

I have an Exchange Server 2010 that is currently running activesync and 3 phones are syncing with it.  The server name and the SSL certificate all references the firms old domain name.  I set this up 4 years ago with the assistance of paid for technical support and have forgotten most of what we had to do.  I have googled articles about it but have not found anything that goes into details.  Does anyone have a link to a good set of instructions for modifying or setting it up?

Hi All,

Attached are two pictures showing the storage quotas that we use in Exchange 2010 so that users get a maximum mailbox size of exactly 2GB and 3GB reported in their Outlook client. Could someone tell me what I need to enter so that the user gets the following:

Issue warning at 3.75gb
prohibit send at 3.9gb
prohibit send / receive at 4.0gb

Also, does anyone know why the "Prohibit send and receive" limit shown in my screenshots aren't exactly 2GB or 3GB yet the Outlook client shows them as Exactly 2GB or 3GB to users? (screenshot attached).

We've tried setting exactly 2GB (2000mb or 2048mb) but this then shows users they have a maximum size of 1.7GB?


Thanks!

What do you consider the best Internet email option (POP3 or IMAP) for individual use? Why - what makes it good and what are its limitations?

Background:

We have been using mostly Verizon.net email. Recently Verizon transferred their email to AOL although we kept the same verizon.net email addresses. Service has deteriorated, especially for accessing email through a smartphone and the AT&T cellular network. Access through Outlook has not deteriorated as much although day-long outages have occurred.

We have personal Gmail and could switch to those although the lack of privacy from Google's practice of scanning content is annoying. We're willing to pay for a good email service. One possibility is Google's G-Suite although we would only use it for email and not use the other functions.

What do you think are the best email providers, including paid options? What are their strengths and limitations?

Thanks,
Pete

Is it impractical to use Verizon/AOL email from a SmartPhone through the AT&T cellular network, and do I therefore need to abandon my verizon.net email account?

Background:

I have two main email accounts - @verizon.net and @gmail.com. Since Verizon ported me over to AOL (while maintaining my verizon.net address) accessing my verizon.net email with my phone is problematic through a cellular connection. This was the case when I was an AT&T customer and is still the case when I am a Consumer Cellular customer accessing the AT&T network.

Frequently, the verizon.net email frequently cannot make the connection to the server from my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phone using the cellular connection. This may happen a few times or even 20 times, and then a connection is made and email is received and sent.

The Verizon.net email works fine on the same phone through WiFi. The Gmail account works fine through both WiFi and cellular. Both accounts work fine through my Windows desktop computer.

The problem happened with the email account configured as POP3 and still occurs with the account reconfigured as IMAP. I use an SSL connection although I had the same problem using no encryption.

I see many mentions of this on the web. It seems widely attributed to incompatibilities between the AT&T, especially when accessed through a bulk provider such as Consumer Cellular, and AOL.

Is this the case? Is my only practical choice to stop using the verizon.net email address?

Thanks,

People,

Further on this question: https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29042654/Configuring-Exchange-Server-IP-Less-DAG-with-PowerShell-script.html

Can anyone here please share some best practice and also recommendations or what's the best way of deploying 5x nodes IP-less DAG on Exchange server 2013 Standard Edition ?

Because from what I can see here: http://msexchangeguru.com/2014/03/21/e2013sp1-ip-less-dag/ and most of the blogs, just consist of 2 node DAG with File Share Witness.

Any help and suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Is the Migration Wiz website (http://migrationwiz.com) able to completely and fully migrate Google calendars & contacts into Office 365?

Is this all done during the email portion of the migration or does it need to be done separately?

Please provide me with instructions on how to change a Google Calendar address from being private to being public within a corporate Gmail account (see the screenshot).

This setting needs to be changed so that Mac Outlook 2016 will be able to synchronize and display the Google calendar.

Following a migration from Exchange 2007 to 2013, the 2007 server has Exchange removed and everything is running fine. The one outstanding thing is it still shows up in EAC under Servers and under Virtual Directories. I'm not sure what steps were missed, but would like to clean this up even if just to look good. Any suggestions?

Hi People,

I'm trying to achieve below with no downtime:

DISABLE Circular Logging
Configure DAG
Allow Database Replication


I've got 2x Exchange Server 2013 Standard Edition SP1 in the two different AD sites:

AD Site: Default-First-Site-Name
PRODMBX20-VM
C:\ 200 GB - OS
P:\ 100 GB - Page File Drive
D:\ 700 GB - PRODMBX20-VM-DB01 [PRIMARY]
E:\ 700 GB - PRODMBX20-VM-DB02 [PRIMARY]

F:\ 700 GB - PRODMBX30-VM-DB01 [SECONDARY]
G:\ 700 GB - PRODMBX30-VM-DB02 [SECONDARY]


AD Site: Head Office
PRODMBX30-VM
C:\ 200 GB - OS
P:\ 100 GB - Page File Drive
F:\ 700 GB - PRODMBX30-VM-DB01 [PRIMARY]
G:\ 700 GB - PRODMBX30-VM-DB02 [PRIMARY]

D:\ 700 GB - PRODMBX20-VM-DB01 [SECONDARY]
E:\ 700 GB - PRODMBX20-VM-DB02 [SECONDARY]

The two mailboxes server will be replicating to each other, so my question is:

1. Can I disable the circular logging after the DAG has been configured on both servers and all mailboxes database successfully replicated?
2. Do I need to disable the circular logging first and then setup the DAG which cause the unwanted outage to the users?
3. Does the DAG can also running fine even with Circular Logging enabled?

Is the Migration Wiz website able to migrate the entire contents of Gmail accounts including all email subfolders into Office 365?

Will these email Gmail subfolders appear as subfolders within Office 365 Outlook underneath the Inbox?

Why is it that I get so many bounced emails from multiple email providers?

My IP is not on any blacklist!

Trying to get whitelisted on AT&T now

It's ridiculous that all these companies are seemingly just blocking every IP and then you have to request to be allowed to send email

Is there anything I can do? I know things like domain age can help etc, but this is a fairly new domain and the email is not spammy - just an email confirmation

A company I support is migrating from Gmail to Office 365.

What are the best website services to use to migrate from Gmail to Office 365?

Dear Team, I just want to confirm these concepts. We are deploying a new Exchange server and in the migration phase. As our understanding, there are 2 options at the moment:

OPT #1. Collect all PST files from users, create new email accounts in a New Exchange server and everyone will have to open their OLD PST file to access the old emails.

OPT #2: Collect all PST files from users, create new email accounts in a New Exchange server and IMPORT their OLD PST files to the Exchange EDB, then everyone can use their accounts to access OLD emails normally.


Am I right to think that:?

1. Open PST files via MS Outlook is just open the file and nothing happens to Exchange EDB database ?

2. Import PST files via Exchange Management Console will import email data from PST file to Exchange EDB database , then increasing its size (by the size of PST files) ?

If we have about 2000 users, which option will be better?

Hi,

We have done a "like for like" migration from one physical Exchange2016 to a new physical Exchange2016.
In this migration we have followed this guide: "https://practical365.com/exchange-server/performing-like-like-exchange-server-migration/"

All connections from outside our corporation firewall is working without any issue, but internally it's a mess.
If we shut down the old server, we have very unstable connection from our outlook clients.
From a few locations it seems to work, but other places "out of office" does not work. It keeps asking for password etc.

We are pretty sure this is a problem either with our internal DNS, or Exchange URL's.

The old Exchange server used it's hostname for it's URL's, and the new uses the old servers hostname as it's URLS.

Running SBS2008, Exchange Server 2007

Allot of people working at the moment and one user met their quota, I removed the quota but it's not taking. I prefer not to restart the information store while other people are working. Is this possible?

The new quota has not updated yet.

Is there a way to strip out attachments en mass from sent items in Gmail or inbox mail, for the purpose of either security or mail size reduction whilst retaining the email itself.  I not referring to Outlook usage etc, only the gmail service online.

Am I wrong if understand "Archiving emails " in MS Outlook will reduce the .PST file by reducing its size?

If so, what is the real mechanism behind it actually?

Please help, wiZards. Many thanks in advance.

Hi all,

Microsoft tells me to use this command:
$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri http://<FQDN of Exchange 2010 server>/PowerShell/ -Authentication Kerberos

It says so in this link: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd297932(v=exchg.141).aspx

I get this error:

Hi Experts,

Once I add my 2 x 2016 Exchange Servers into a DAG, all my outlook clients loose connectivity and the only way they can reconnect is if i remove the Exchange servers from the DAG.

What art the steps should I take after adding the servers to the DAG?

Thanks in advance.

We are using Oracle's Primavera Contract Manager that requires a SMTP server to send email but allows for no options to use anything that requires a username or password. So in order to make it work we have the IIS SMTP service setup that requires no authentication and anonymous access. This is a problem as it appears some outside source is using it to send bogus/spam emails. Any ideas if there are options to secure the smtp server service on the Windows 2012 server so it's not anonymous access to send? or possible some sort of free online smtp server? The ISP is Comcast which requires a username and password for smtp services so that will not work. Any thoughts? Or addiotional questions please feel free to ask and thank you in advance for your help.
