SBS 2008 Backup-Fails with Creation of the shared protection point
Hi - am maintaining a SBS 2008 Premium server for a local firm. Recently (for
over a week now) when I check the backup component of console at start of
day I see the following message -
"Creation of the shared protection point timed out. Unknown error
and the backup has failed. I have done a bit of a google search and not
found much. At the start I could do a manual backup and that woudl work, then

We just migrated over to 2003 and Exchange 2003 and have been noticing
sporadic occasions of some email not being saved in sent items. No, there
are no filter, rules or anything on the outlook clients and this does NOT
happen on ever mail so "save sent items" is turned on. At first it seemed
that it was only emails that were old but I have users reporting that after
creating a brand new email they are not stored. I have another user that
when he forwards a certain email it will not show up no matter how many
times you try. I've logged in using OWE and other workstations with ...Exchange Active Sync #4
I have a user with a Sprint PalmOne Treo 650. Sprint advertises that this
supported by Exchange 2003 Server Active Sync. Microsoft has documented
Active Sync is included with Exchange 2003 at no additional cost.
I have not been able to find documentation on how to install and configure
Exchange 2003 Active Sync to support a Sprint PalmOne Treo 650.
Can anyone point me to Microsoft or Sprint/PalmOne documentation on how to
setup Exchange 2003 Active Sync to support a Treo 650?
I work with the American Red Cross, a non-profit organization. I appreciate
your help and support.
On ...Exchange and PST files
Just wanted to ping you about any information you have about using PST's in
a production domain environment. I have heard that it's not a good idea, but
I was curious what made it a bad one.
Currently, users in my exchange org have a dedicated file server that hosts
all their PST files over the network. So backup isn't a problem. I do
realize that there is a 2GB limit on PST files which is an escalating
problem the longer time goes on. Anybody have any good ideas about how to
implement a policy that will allow exchange users to continue to archive
mail, but won't allow them to...Backup failure for Outlook.pst
I have an HP laptop running Windows XP and have Outlook 2003. I have never
been able to get a backup of this file. I backup to an external Maxtor hard
drive. I formerly used Retrospect Express HD and everything on the computer
would backup except Outlook.pst. I recently switched my backup software to
Symantec's Norton 360 and the same occurs. During backup I have Outlook
closed. I make sure no other processes are using Outlook. I have turned off
virus checking and firewall software, all to no avail. I tried copying the

After i removed the Exchange 2000 server, the email stopped so i restarted

the server to Windows 2003SP1. The Information Store does not automatically
start. I have been sent a fix to remove the Exchange 2003 service and
reinstall it but have not had the opportunity to complete that task yet. A
reboot on the Exchange Server makes me manually start the Information Store

showed the Information Store as 'Starting'. I could not do anything wit...Exchange 2003 Default Mail Box

Firstly, it would be best to split the database into front and back ends so
that you are only backing up the data each time. The database splitter
wizard can do this for you. Spitting a database has many other advantages
too. You can then back up the back end file to any location you like using

Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
From time to time Entourage does not seem to be able to connect to the Exchange server. Under Leopard this usually happens after I work offline for a while then attempt to go back online. Connection is across a VPN. It usually resolves itself after a while (typically 10 - 15 minutes). It's almost as if Entourage needs some time to think about whether or not it wants to talk to the Exchange server.
I upgraded my O/S to Snow Leopard a few hours ago. And Entourage is still unable to connect to the Exchange server. In f...Exchange 2003 & deleting SMTP address
Under 5.5 we could delete the SMTP address of a user, who was terminated or
left, to disallow email from coming in from the outside. Under 2003, if you
only have theSMTP address, it won't let you delete it because it is the
primary address. Is there a way to bypass this or some function I am not
aware of to delete the address. We don't delete or archive the email
account right away for various reasons but need to disable smtp traffic.
Thanks in advance.
Do you disable the user account once they leave? If this is the case anyone
who sends to this user will receive...Userid & password not remembered (Exchange 5.5)
Not sure where this problem resides, so I'm posting to multiple groups .
I manage a W2K AD domain. We have several workstations that do a local logon
(with the same userid and password as their domain login). They have Office
2003 installed. Outlook is set up to connect to our Exchange 5.5 server.
When a user launches Outlook for the first time, they have to set it up and
define the mail account. This works as expected for everyone. The problem we
have is that for a small number of users they get prompted for their domain
userid and password every time they launch Outlook. This is d...Exchange 5.5 user problem: not receiving mail until sending mail
One (only one) user does not receive internal mail from a different
site until he sends mail to that site (both servers Exchange 5.5,
client is Windows XP w/ Outlook 2000 SP3), then he gets whatever is
waiting for him in the queue all at once.
Does not seem to happen when sending to the outside, only on internal
servers--and it's only one user? Weird.
Any ideas on how to resolve this issue or what is going on? Thanks!
The new mail notification uses UDP - it's likely that this is being blocked
on the workstation itself by the built-in firewall after applying SP1 for

I'd like to know if in Dynamics CRM v4 you need exchange to route the
incoming mail to the queues, because I have heard that in version 4 you don't
need to have exchange server.
We have Lotus Domino as email server and we'd like to get the incoming mail
via E-mail Router Configuration Mnager in Dynamics CRM v4.
I don't know if these steps are correct:
1. Create two profiles (one for incoming mails and one for outgoing mails)
2. Create a new deployment to connect with dynamics CRM server.
3. Load Data.
4. Modify the incoming or outgoing profile for a user or que...Can you paste to protected spreadsheet and skip over locked cells?

I want to setup a simple procedure to archive all messages for all mailboxes
on my server, on a yearly basis. My idea is to run the following command for

Customers will open the corresponding PST file whenever they need.

Why on a daily basis do I need to reboot the exchange server in order for the
"Check Name" feature in outlook to work. If I reboot, it will work for a
while but when I add new users in AD, after a day or so, I have to reboot for
the feature to work.
If there is a service that I can restart for this to work, it would be much
easier than rebooting the server.

Until last week, we ran a Windows Server 2003 Active Directory

About a year ago, some outside company brought in a Sun Server and, without
my intervention, was able to set up that box to email outside the company a
report every week. To my knowledge, nobody had to do anything to the
Exchange server to get this to work.
Now last week we migrated that sole exchange server to Exchange 2003.
Everything works perfectly, but that Sun Server no longer can send out
emails. The Sun server has the new IP ...Move forms in public folders 5.5 to exchange 2003

Add 120 days to the installation date, if you're unsure when Exchange
actually was installed, check the "Exchange Server Setup Progress.log" file
typically found on your C: drive.
