I set a mail flow rule in Exchange 2016 which scans the subject and body for a keyword (scarecrow for testing) and if found, sends a bcc of the E-mail to another internal E-mail recipient on my mail server.   The rule works fine for E-mail sent internally or E-mail sent out to an external address.    The rule does not apply to inbound E-mail whether newly created or in the form of a reply from an external address.  

I don't see a method of creating a mail flow rule to inspect incoming messages, maybe I'm missing it.   Is there another way for Exchange (Not the individual Outlook clients) to detect a keyword in the subject line or body of an incoming E-mail and bcc a copy of the incoming E-mail to a second internal address?

Thanks,

They are on a SBS 2011 Server using Exchange. Outlook 2016. The Accountant's Outlook will occasionally pop up and ask for credentials. It is a laptop but connected with a cable. I have deleted everything in the Credentials Manager. Can't figure out what is causing this popup.

before trying to move mailbox to a different database, i need to reduce the size.Currently the email box is very hard to work upon, it goes into loop as soon as we open an email. Working on each email itself taking about 10 minutes with such performance moving data from 2012 with each month having an average of 4k to 5k emails is very difficult task.

I don’t think we can move them manually and also I don’t want to take the risk of losing any emails during manual process.

Later, I was able to create a folder in the online archive and then initiated the transfer but in between again the Outlook crashed on my computer. After which I checked the transfer didn’t complete.

As the mailbox has huge amount of emails is there any way I can reduce mailbox size.

Exchange 2013 CAS Array

If I understand, Users from inside the Network and Outside the Network, when they connect to their mailboxes in Exchange server, they should go through one of the CAS servers.
Multiple CAS servers are set as an Array and Virtual IP address should be assigned to the Array and DNS record should be created for the CAS Array

OK Now, how do you create the CAS array for internal/External users ?

Thank you

Hello :)

I have a Hybrid Office365/Exchange 2010 configuration. If I create a new mailbox on Exchange 2010 (onpremises) my autodiscover works fine inside my organization. If I configure this onpremises account on my Android phone its works fine (changing mail server from outlook.office365.com to mail.mydomain.com)

BUT....:

Outside my organization when I configure my Outlook 2016 (VLSC version, not Click to run version) and put my email and credentials a Office365 window pop-ups and my credentials are not accepted.

o365_ger.jpg
My question: all new onpremises created mailbox (exchange 2010) need to sync to Office365 cloud too (even without license)??

I applied the 2018-05 Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 3.5 - 4.7.1 (KB4099635) and now my outlook 2013 clients cannot connect to my exchange 2016 server. The outlook clients take forever (about 5 minutes) to load (Loading profile). Once up, all exchange folders are in the status "This folder has not yet been updated" "Trying to Connect" "Disconnected".  When I restore the system state to last night's backup, it works. Unfortunately, windows automatically reinstalled the update and it quit working again.

How do I go about troubleshooting this problem? I dont see any problems in the event log, though there could be and I dont recognize their importance. I found a Health Checker script and ran it. It says I'm on .NET 4.7.1 and the maximum is 4.5.2.

Note: I started the outlook clients in safe mode, same problem.

A user has, in addition to their own mailbox, a shared mailbox in Outlook 2016. It says there are 3 unread emails, but none are visible. At the bottom of the pane it says "displaying messages newer than 12 months". Maybe the 3 are older than 12 months? But I don't see anywhere to adjust the shared mailbox settings so we can see older than 12 months. Where is that adjustment made?

After opening Outlook and selecting the profile I want to use I can never get the option to select profiles again until I reboot. I exit Outlook politely. Check to make sure no mapi services are running in task manager. No matter what I try I have to reboot before being presented with selecting the profile again.

Great Macro here: https://www.slipstick.com/developer/code-samples/create-task-sending-message/

Creates a Task from a sent message.

One issue: only works if I leave the Trust Center > Macro Settings at "Enable All".

How can I get this Macro to work at the level of "Notifications for Digitally Signed, All Other Macros Disabled" which was the default level at installation.

Over the last few hours, a co-worker has received 5 emails, from different IP addresses, with the subject line:  "Undeliverable: any text here".

Related IP: 104.47.2.210
Related IP: 104.47.2.215
Related IP: 204.154.183.70
Related IP: 88.87.45.45

When I review the Exchange Server logs, there are no entries of her sending any email to the recipients.  

When I look at the complete Header of the emails, I see they originated in a country other than the US, then are routed through mail Servers in the US, then to her Inbox.

Her email address is the "Reply To" address.

How can I identify the problem here?

Exchange 2016 stopped delivering email mid-day today. Messages sit in the Outbox (same problem via Outlook or OWA) and do not send. No error message is given, they just never leave the outbox. This applies to both internet and external recipients -- that is to say, Outlook won't even deliver email to other users on the same server. What should I be doing to troubleshoot this?

With unacceptable frequency, our users of Office 365 E3 keep getting hijacked.

The last victim had a password which was 11 characters in length so I presume it wasn't brute-forced.  Therefore, I'm assuming he fell victim to a phishing attack and accidentally disclosed his office 365 email address and password.  Any other scenario I'm not considering for how this could have happened?

It seems that Microsoft is slow in detecting the sudden burst of outbound malicious email from.  Generally, the compromised account sends emails to everyone in our company and who knows how many outside contacts.

1.  Aside from multi-function authentication, what can we do to prevent this?
2. By chance, is there any kind of solution which can detect a sudden burst of mail from a far-away IP address (e.g. China vs. USA)?
3. What's the best/most common anti-phishing solution?  Do these solutions only protect local Outlook or webmail as well?

Any other thoughts or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
Thanks,
Mike

Hi,

We have a Outlook VBA that EE helped us some time ago where it places BCC email automatically when creating, replying and forwarding an email.  Some time back the computer failed and the VBAs were not restored to the Outlook.  We  just finish restoring the VBA to the ThisOutlookSession but it doesn't work and can't find the documentation.  We want to every time we create, reply or forward and email, the BCC field is filed automatically based on this script.  Please advice what  are we missing (below the VBA).

Private WithEvents m_Inspectors As Outlook.Inspectors
Private Sub Application_Startup()
  Set m_Inspectors = Application.Inspectors
End Sub
Private Sub m_Inspectors_NewInspector(ByVal Inspector As Inspector)
Dim objRecip As Recipient
Dim strMsg As String
Dim strBCC As String
    If TypeName(Inspector.CurrentItem) = "MailItem" Then
        If Inspector.CurrentItem.EntryID = "" Then
        ' #### USER OPTIONS ####
        ' address for Bcc -- must be SMTP address or resolvable
        ' to a name in the address book
            strBCC = "someone@somewhere.dom"            
            Set objRecip = Inspector.CurrentItem.Recipients.Add(strBCC)
            objRecip.Type = olBCC
            If Not objRecip.Resolve Then
                strMsg = "Could not resolve the Bcc recipient."
                MsgBox strMsg, vbInformation, "Could Not Resolve Bcc Recipient"
            End If
            Set objRecip = Nothing
        End If
    End If
End Sub

Hi Experts!

I have recently migrated an Exchange 2010 to 2016, I exported the certificate from 2010 then imported to 2016, but it is showing invalid, Outlook is giving certificate warning when it starts, but OWA is working fine.
As the certificate is expiring soon, we are going to renew it, one simple question, can I just ignore the "invalid" status and click on "Renew" as I normally do the renew process or do I have to fix the status first and do the renew process? what are the consequences if I continue to do the former? and what should I do if I need to solve the issue in latter?

Thanks!

I have a new Exchange 2016 server. OWA works perfectly. iPhones and Androids using ActiveSync work perfectly. Outlook clients on the local domain work perfectly. All and send and receive just fine. My Digicert certificate displays correctly for HTTPS.

The issue I am having is with the few remaining POP users. They can receive email just fine, but can't send. The issue is that the SMTP server won't accept anyone's credentials. Regardless of the email client, it always comes back and asks for the password again.

I have followed all of the steps here and triple-checked: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg298947(v=exchg.160).aspx

When I sign in to OWA and go to options, I see the SMTP settings displayed pointing to port 587.

What am I missing?

We use a software product called Formdocs that does electronic forms for us.    In the past with Windows 7 and Outlook 2007 we could program an electronic form to launch an Outlook email and prefill the recipient(s).   With Windows 10 and Outlook 2016 this feature does not work.   We can launch a new email without pre-filling recipients, and that works fine.   It’s only when the software does the prefill.    Does anyone at RTM have any ideas on what might be the cause?    We tried uninstalling Trend Anti-virus and using Microsoft defender in thinking it might be the anti-virus but that didn’t help.
The runtime error we get from Formdocs is really unhelpful, and their support department just tells us the issue is with Windows or Outlook.   Not them.   They have never been very good support-wise.

I am having a problem with my Outlook 2007 inbox updating with received emails.

When people send me emails I have to either exist out,and then go back into Outlook 2007 or press send/receive F9
To see the emails in my inbox.  There is no problem with sending emails.


>How can I resolve this problem.  ???
Note: I can not change the Exchange cache mode setting because it grayed out by a GPO - This is not an Option to resolve this problem.

Hi -

If they have not put tracking or some 3rd party software is there any way that a user can tell if another user has opened their email (Within Outlook)- This is within the same Exchange organisation. I also have access to the specific mailbox in question which needs checking whether it read an email sent from another user. I said to my client it was possible without enabling the options, but maybe there are hidden properties or logs that i am not aware of.

Thanks

I have a Windows 2008 R2 Standard Server running Active Directory, and Microsoft Exchange 2010.

I have an employee (Joe) who will be leaving the firm in 90 days.  For every incoming email Joe receives, I want it to appear in Joe's inbox, but I also want to "automatically" notifiy the sender, that Joe's office email address will expire on 8/1/2018.  Starting 5/5/2018, the Sender can begin using Joe's new mail address:  Joe@SoonToBeRetired2018.  

How can I set this up in Outlook (or Exchange) to automatically "reply" to Joe's incoming email?

Or, should I create a new user in Exchange, and direct "Mail Delivery" to forward a "copy" to the new user, which generates an automatic reply, stating the office email address will expire on 8/1/2018.

Thank you!
