Exch 5.5 logs

Hi,

Can I use Exch 5.5 to see if a user received an email about 10 days ago?
I'm using a tape backup every night so if the user received then deleted it 
the same day, I wouldn't see it on there. Will there be a record in the 
logs? (I'm not using circular logging.)

Thanks in advance,
Steve

Hey,

5.5 console > Tools > Message Tracking.

Of course this will have to be enabled.

Its 40 days. It may be worth checking in the recipients deleted items, 
recover deleted items.

I wish I'd had tracking turned on.

Thanks

OWA Question (Exch 2003)
Exchange 2003.

Does DDNS work with Exch 2003?
I had DDNS (no-ip.com) working with Exchange 2000 a while ago but now I'm trying it out on 2003 and cannot get it to work. Everything gets stuck in the queue and mail from the outside bounces back to the sender. I know I'm a rookie but it's the only way I can learn. I have a feeling my FQDN is not right as well as my MX records. Any help will be appreciated. BP As long as your Exchange 2003 server is able to receive messages, that shouldn't cause any problem (of course, supposing your DDNS is updated when necessary). What error message do you get ?

Cannot remove last 5.5 server
Hi All, I need some guidence in removing the last 5.5 server. We migrated to exchange 2003 with out any problems, we moved all the mailboxes and public folders to the new 2k3 server. I removed the ADC prior to reading the KB article that shows how to remove the last 5.5 box, which states that after I delete the 5.5 server I have to force replication of the config_CA in order for the deletion to replicate. My question is should I just install the ADC once again or can I remove the server without affecting Exch. 2k3 using ADSI Edit (KB 328668)? I need to remove this box but I am nervous...

exch 5.5 to exch 2003
I have an Exch 5.5 server on an NT4 domain. I also have an AD domain, no current exchange servers, with a trust relationship with the NT domain. I have now purchased new server hardware and Exchange Server 2003. My question is, is there a way to set up the exch 2003 server as a new installation, no co-existance with 5.5, and then migrate the 5.5 mailboxes over to it? Or do I have to do the coexistance thing?

Migrating from Groupwise 5.5
Does anyone know of a utility or has done a migration of Groupwise to Exchange 2k or 2k3? My research has shown that the built in wizard in Exch does not migrate the address book and I'll need to do that. I need to migrate about 20 mailboxes. Thx. For 20 mailboxes, it's not worth the trouble to try and get the address book sync and mail routing working at all. Creating 20 mailboxes is a half hour task even manually, then you can use the migration wizard to move the user data. Good luck.
