As it was described in the IMF deployment whitepaper (see, IMF can implement several levels of 

If you choose to apply filtering at the gateway level, it will not pass 
beyond IMF and both 2k and 2k3 servers the same way.

If you choose to rely on store filtering, e2k will not understand 
anything about those and let the messages into Inbox as-is, while e2k3 
sp1 store will move them to junk mail folder depending on the settings 
you've configured.

Net of it is that e2k mailboxes will only benefit from gateway level 
filtering. Read the deployment guide, it has all these details.

Exchange default gateway a problem?
I have 2 separate ISA servers I use this for fault tolerance and load balancing on the Internet I have one POP/SMTP server that is on my intranet. I have published that POP server though both ISA servers. To make the explanation of this scenario easier I’ll number the server ;ISA1, ISA2 If my Exchange server gateway is pointing to ISA1 those external clients pointing to ISA1 work but those external clients pointing to ISA2 do not. If I just change the gateway on the Exchange server to point at ISA2 than those external clients pointing to ISA2 work but the ISA1 external clients do not....

imf and SMTP
Every 2 weeks a new imf files comes via MU, after the file comes down SMTP tries to restart and hangs when stg. Looking at services and SMTP says starting and this never finishes. The only solution is to reboot the exchange server and then SMTP starts properly. Also IMF is not listed under my virtual server but does function? Thanks IMF showed up as a separate node under SMTP if you were using IMF v1. IMF v2 (part of Exchange Server 2003 SP2) removes that node and moves the functionality to enable IMF to SMTP vs properties | general | advanced | select ip address | Edit. If you are ...

No Exchange Tasks in Active Directory Users and Computers
Hi I have just installed Exchange 2000 SP2 on a Win 2K system. Install seemed to go fine, AD Schema has been modified, Exchange seems to be running. However... When I go to AD users to create a new mailbox enabled user, there is no Exchage Tasks Wizard. There are no Exchange related tasks at all that I can see. If I right click a user, no Exchange related tasks in the menu, and if I look at the user properties, there are no Exchange related tabs. As this is a test setup, Exchange is actually installed on the test Domain Controller. I tried unistalling and re-installing ESM, and no joy - st...

Exchange 2003 IMF in a Simple Front End Back End Scenario
Exchange 2003 SP1 on both a BE server and a FE server. IMF has been downloaded and installed on the FE only. I have it set to not do any of the gateway archive/delete. I have it set to put Junk Email with a score of 8 or higher into the Junk folder. My email account is accessed via Outlook 2003 and via OWA (forms based). I have a Junk email folder in my OWA and the options are set to enable the Junk email filtering. My expectation is that the FE will assign the SCL number and then move it to the junk email folder, but when I go into OWA it is in my inbox. When I start up Outlook, it gets...

According tothe documentation the default folder for these archieve messages is Program Files\Exchsvr\Mailroot\vs1\UCEArchieve. I do not see this fiolder. Question 1. Is this folder created by default? Question 2. How do I view messages that get archieved to this folder or do I just see details? "Allen M" <> wrote in message news:O8J2$

all iisadmin/exchange services keep restarting
Our exchange server has some very big issues today. All IIS Admin and Exchange services (this does not include the stays running) continue to fail and restart every few minutes. I thought it might be code red II, but after doing a virus scan I came up with nothing. Any other ideas? Here is my server config: Windows 2000 server SP4. Exchange 2000 ENT SP3 with all rollups. ALL hotfixes applied. Group Shield 5.2. GFI ME 9.0. 2 XEON's. 1 GB ram. 200 gb for Stores. 201 Mailboxes. This can happen if some plugin installed on your Exchange is causing a memory exception, which term...

Exchange Distribution Groups
I have a real stupid question. I just builded an Exchange 2003 server and populated it with user accounts and created mailboxes, how do I create a allusers group that everyone could send e-mail to. And also I want that everytime a new user is created it falls under this alluser distrbution group. I kind of have an idea how to create it in Ad but not sure what the correct process is. Thanks Amador You can either use query-based DLs or just create an "All Users" group, add the existing accounts to it, and then when you want to create a new user, copy an existing user.

Exchange Resource
First off - I apologize for the double posting earlier - computer hung and wasn't sure if the first request went through :) When creating a new Exchange Resource - using the calendar function to schedule things - it seems to have a time frame when you can view what times are free for the resource. For example: I created a new resouce today. I want to schedule thing to it for the next few months. From today through Oct 31 I can view anything that's been scheduled - on Nov 1, there's a white bar with lines through it preventing me to view anything that's been sched...

Exchange 2003 Issues #2
All: I posted a little while ago with a question about a potential problem with recipient update service and now I am not so sure this is the source of the problem. Here is what's going on: When I create a new user account and mailbox, nothing is being inheritted by the new account. The email recipient policy is not filtering to the new account nor is any permissions to the mailbox other than SELF. If I manually set permissions according to a woeking mailbox, everything is fine EXCEPT, the name is not appearing in the GAL. I have increased logging on the Exchange Box and am gettin...

Everything has been set up correctly. I have tried to re-install exchange sp2 but it now states that the older version of imf is installed and to remove before updating.

change OWA URL from http://servername/exchange to http://servername/webmail/exchange
Hi all, Because we want to use OWA (Exch 2003) on our extranet (e.g. which next to OWA has to serve other websites (apache, tomcat, other iis) we want to add a directory to the exchange url, so at the firewall (which hosts the proxy server it's clear which server to choose even a second owa (the old 5.5)).

Exchange 2000 CPU 100%???
I have a Windows 2000 Server running Exchange 2000 SP3. The CPU is running at 100%. I have updated the Server to its full amount and updated Exchange to its full amount, but to no avail, the server remains at 100%. Each time we reboot the server, the store.exe will not go to 100% until a few minutes or maybe hours. What could this problem be?

CRM 3.0 with Exchange 2007
We are currently on CRM 3.0 and Exchange 2003 utilizing the email router. We plan on upgrading to Exchange 2007, but remain on CRM 3.0. Everything I have been reading informs me that CRM 3.0 email router cannot be installed on Exchange 2007 and must remain on Exchange 2000/2003 (I understand you can use the hotfix for forwarding rules, etc... to Exchange 2007). With the release of CRM 4.0, and forgive me if this is a silly question, could we install the CRM 4.0 email router on Exchange 2007 (so we can get rid of our Exchange 2003 server) and still be able to use it with our CRM 3.0 i...
