Exchange2003 restrict domain admins access

Hi,

We have Exchange2003 server and all domain admins are able to open any 
mailbox without making any permissions changes. How can I restrict their 
access so that they can't just open any mailbox they feel like. I have setup 
host monitor to alert me if they access any foreign mailbox, but what should 
I change in exchange - they have access to any mailbox.
I have addedd the registry key to see the security key in ESM, but when I 
look at the domain admins everything is greyed out, but they have full 
permissions. Where should I be looking?

Thanks

They shouldn't have that access by default.
Check the membership of Exchange Enterprise Servers and Exchange
Domain Servers. only computers should be in that group, the domain
admins should not.

Start at the Organization level.  Check to see if Domain Admins have been 
granted Send As/Receive As allow rights.  If it is greyed out there, then 
you will need to use ADSIEdit and check at the level just above that.  The 
Exchange stuff will be located under the Configuration container.  Walk up 
the tree until you find where the Domain Admins have been granted the Send 
As/Receive as allow rights, and simply remove the Allow.  Typically, there 
is a Deny placed on that group by default.

We used to use that trick in Exchange 2000, but it doesn't work in Exchange 
2003.  The Exchange Domain Servers group is also denied access explicitly at 
the Servers level I believe.

Hmm, in which case I need to have a quick crawl through the permisions
on the lab boxes, as I've got more rights than you say I should have.

Using Excel GoalSeek on Access form
XP Pro SP2, Office 2003 SP3. I'm looking to convert an Excel worksheet into an Access form.

REmoving exchange server from source domain after Inter-forest mig
Hello, We recently migrated our source domain (2000 DC and exchange server (member server) to 2003 target domain due to comapny merger.

Is this as simple as disable the service, dismount database, and shut down the server? Do I need to remove exchange 2000 reference from 2000 AD...

delivery errors to 1 domain
Here goes: When a message from an Exchange 2000 server in Domain A is sent to another Exchange server in Domain B, the message gets stuck in the retry state until NDR 4.4.7 is generated.

Restrict authenticated LDAP clients to subset of the directory
We have a pure, single-forest, single-domain, native-mode Exchange 2003, Windows 2003, Active Directory 2003 environment. Our Exchange organization has several separate and distinct Global Address Lists. Each user belongs to one and only one GAL, and can see only that GAL from the Outlook or OWA clients. All works correctly to this point. The issue, in a nutshell, is that we now have a need to support pure LDAP clients for directory lookups, but those lookups must be restricted to that GAL that the authenticated user would see if they were in Outlook/OWA. The restriction must be based on ...

Enterprise design: Accessing global 'config' data
When a system is distributed over multiple servers, what are the recommended methods for accessing data (like user records) that must be maintained globally in one spot? IOW, http exchanges with a large vendor could connect to a servers in one of several different locations, but common data (user's credit card info, address, etc) would need to be constant through the exchange. This scenario would seem to counter some of the advantage in using a distributed system to begin with, so I presume that some clever methods have been devised to deal with this.
