Hello,
I have a user who is has their own mailbox as expected(1) and full access and send as access to a mailbox in addition to his own(2). So when replying to messages sent to mailbox 2, he would make sure the From address is that of mailbox 2. Those mails would usually end up in the sent mail folder of mailbox 2. However today he noticed that when he sends mail or replies to mail sent to mailbox 2 using the mailbox 2 address in the From box in the composition window, the  mails all always are in his mailbox 1 sent mail folder. Is there a setting somewhere that needs toggling? Thanks!

Important Lessons on Recovering from Petya

In their most recent webinar, Skyport Systems explores ways to isolate and protect critical databases to keep the core of your company safe from harm.

I had one of my desktop support peeps build four new mailboxes.  by total accident, she created them on one of the default DBs installed when exchange is installed.  When Harvey hit Houston, we lost those databases and we were not backing them up since they weren't supposed to be used.  So, now I have four users on an orphaned mailbox database.

I tried to more them, but since exchange 2013 can't see the old database, the move is failing.

Is my only option to delete the mailboxes and recreate them?

Thanks

I have a 2012 VM running on a host 2008 server sp2.   I am having issues with the 2012 vm shutting down every few minutes.  I am seeing the following error in the hyper-v admin log.   I have tried to install integrated services.   Is there and update for 2012 integrated services running on an older host (2008 server sp2).

Integrated services version according to the registry is 6.2.9200.16384.

Data Exchange failed to connect to virtual machine 'Win2012APPS4' because the version does not match the version expected by Hyper-V (Virtual machine ID D8A5FF01-E0BE-47EF-BA5D-9017FD7CE70F). To fix this problem, remove the existing version from the guest operating system and then install the version provided with the version of Hyper-V you are using.

out of nowhere we are receiving this bounce back below, when trying to send to a few different clients.  Nothing has changed and we were able to email them last week, however this week we are getting this message.   I have no clue what to even check and it's different clients so I am assuming it is on our side.  Ideas?

Hello All,

 I am connecting Exchange 2016 server remotely via PS script to manage the Mailbox rules for users, we have close to 1500 users for which we have to create/modify mailbox rules however when i run the script (from non exchange server) which first import the exchange session to powershell and then execute the commands to manage mailbox rules but it fails after running properly for a few users with the message "Get-InboxRule/ New-InboxRule" is not is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program". i.e it is trying to execute the command before it imports the exchange cmdlet into powershell, please note when i run it for a few users only it will work properly.

i have also provided delay in the PS script just after import exchange session/cmdlets command but it didn't help.

sample PS script code:

$username = "xyz"

$password = get-content D:\password.txt | convertto-securestring

$cred = new-object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -argumentlist $username, $password

$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri url -Credential $cred

Import-PSSession $Session

Start-Sleep -s 10

Rest commands to Manage Mailbox

 Note- i am using the proper url in -ConnectionUri, here it is not accepting url to be included in body so i am replacing my url with simply a name "url" :)

 

I have to call the script one by one for each user, hence the one time connection to exchange …

Hi,

I have been instructed to restore some old backups from 2011 in an attempt to recover some data.

The Backup is of an Exchange 2010 Server taken using System Center Data Protection Manager 2007.

Sadly, the backup server in use at the time has been retired so the original hardware is unavailable.

Is it possible for me to build a new server, install DPM 2007 and somehow import/catalog the tape and recover the Exchange Server?

Thanks,

Andy

What is the best way of setting up a central contact list in SBS for all users to see. I was thinking the best way would be
to use the Global Address List? if so would you establish this using the exchange management console and then
mail contact?

thanks in advance

[Webinar] Lessons on Recovering from Petya

Skyport is working hard to help customers recover from recent attacks, like the Petya worm. This work has brought to light some important lessons. New malware attacks like this can take down your entire environment. Learn from others mistakes on how to prevent Petya like worms.

Hi,
I am looking for some info / assistance with the following scenario.
My current setup is as follows:
Domain A
Domain B
Trust between domain A & domain B
Exchange 2010 server running on domain A
Mailboxes from domain A are LINKED to users in domain B
Azure AD Connect sync setup with O365 OU Filtering
So, I need to migrate all mailboxes from domain A exchange server onto O365 and allow the users in domain B to access them.

Now I see that few users are not syncing to the distribution group in cloud, so I take the user out of scope in domain A and run force sync again take back the user in scope and run force sync, this works fine and user is getting sync to distribution group. But even doing this, some users are not getting in the group in O365.
I checked that, when I take that user out of scope from both domain and run force sync, this is not deleting the user in O365. I tried deleting user from O365 from powershell and in on-prem bring user back to scope in both domain and run sync, this time it works but I lost the old emails by deleting the user.
I know I can restore all those emails.
Can somebody tell me, how to proceed in this scenario?

thank you

Hi,

I have a user that is using outlook 2010 which connects to Exchange 2013 and after turning off cache mode, this unread folder is no longer updating automatically.

After he reads an email, the email is marked READ but it still shows in his unread folder.  When he clicks on a different folder and click back to the unread folder, the listing updates and his read emails are no longer showing.  In cache mode, the listing is updated almost instantly.

Also, online mode feels slower than cache mode.

Thanks,

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.

After my recent disaster, I had to run around to all my users and 'repair' their profiles due to a server misconfiguration.  Now the heat has died down, I am wondering how I can do this without haveing to have the user present and logging in.
  1. Is there a way for me change the connection settings for outlook users from the command line/programatically, script it?
  2. Is there a program (Not outlook) and can use to open the Outlook connection settings so I can view/edit them?  Something light weight that does not require a huge install

Ideas?

Hi,

I have an issue with my internal SBS2011 Server.

Everything has been working fine until a new member started and i wanted to setup outlook on his laptop. Previously it's been fine, stick the sever (remote.xxxx.co.uk) in the thing with the username and hey presto. But, alas it hasn't been so easy.

It keeps failing. Test Exchange Connectivity shows this:  The RPC_S_SERVER_UNAVAILABLE error (0x6ba) was thrown by the RPC Runtime process.
Elapsed Time: 3454 ms.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling RPC over HTTP and disabling/reenabling OWA access but none of this has helped.

Hosts file seems to have no issues - just that 127.0.0.1 remote.xxxx.co.uk.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I am the administrator of an Exchange 2013 with multiple Outlook 2013 clients running in a domain.
For absolutely no reason some my users start complaining, that they can no longer send any mails because Outlook reports, that their mail box exceeds the maximum limit.
This is very strange indeed, because if you look at these users in Exchange EAC the quota is unlimited???

Is there something I miss?     (other than some cash and good look)

hi guys

We have an Exchange 2010 environment. I want to set a temporary password for someone so that they can set one for themselves. So I have done so and set the check box to 'user must change password at next logon' in AD. They will be external so the only way they can access our emails will be via OWA.

But when I go to OWA and put the temporary password in and their username, it does not prompt them to enter a new one?! This has been happening for anybody I create recently. I wonder if Exchange just needs a reboot?

Any ideas why?
Thanks for helping

Hi Guys,

We are receiving emails inbound from one user, is it possible to change the display name once it is received by our Exchange 2010 Server.

For example --> guy@person.com emails us --> can we have it show up as joeblow@company.com ?

Thanks!
