Is it possible to create a mailbox within the Exchange System Manager, eg,
firstname.lastname@example.org without having to create a user.
Im currently using exchange 2003
Not really. What is the problem?

You cannot create a mailbox in Exchange 2003 without creating a user account
associated with it.
However, if you just want an SMTP ad...User explicitly denied "Full Mailbox Access"
I have an administrator account "Mark" that is explicitly denied the Full
Mailbox Access permission in "Mailbox Rights". I am able to grant other
adminstrators access to the same mailbox, even domain users. It seem the user
is inheriting the single Deny permission, but I can't see where from. The
user who's mailbox I am trying to grant access to is the domain\users OU.
Mark is automatically denied full mailbox access to all users, even if I turn
off inheritance in the security tab. Help?
Thanks everyone in advance.

Is there a fle associated with additional mailboxes? Is there a file

there a file that can be copied or even a utility that will make sure
I do not lose any. I only have a few, but some of my co-workers are

Is it possible to connect those two again?

I know that in Active Directory you can grant someon 'Full mailbox access' to
another person's mailbox. Can you give Read Only access to another person's
mailbox in AD, or do you have to do that through Outlook permissions with
delegates or folder permissions?

I use Veritas Backup Exec to performa backups of our information stores and
user mailboxes. During the course of the backups I get warnings from some
mailboxes about e-mails that are corrupt.
My question is, how do I get to the e-mail/mailbox level to find out what is
wrong with the particular message and if need be, eliminate them?

Hi, I'm using EX 2003 at the moment, and am pretty new to this, so this is
probably really dumb question but... How can I find out the size of users'
mailboxes from the server? I've looked everywhere, but can't seem to find it.
We are running out of room on our mail server, and I want to find out who
the biggest culprits are... Hope somebody can get back to me asap :)

I have followed the steps in in q821897 to restore this functionallity. The steps did not work, members of Domain Admins still do not have the abillity to open users mailboxes. If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them

Doing a migration of Exchange 2000 to 2003, where mailboxes on an Exchange
2000 server is being moved to a newly installed Exchange 2003 SP2 server.
After moving about dozen of users, we seem to notice a 20% increase of the
size of the mailbox on Exchange 2003 from what it was on Exchange 2000...
Is there any explaination for this ???, maybe single message storage or ???
Single instance storage will be broken during the move.

I'm trying to set up several of my users to be able to receive email
addressed to either of our two domains. The element that I don't get
is how the user can tell to which address the email message was sent,
email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. I have already added the second
domain's SMTP to a test account, and can receive mail sent to
email@example.com just fine, but I need to see that that is the case. Any
help is greatly appreciated.

We have installed and additional Exchange 5.5 server to
our site with OWA and IIS. OWA works fine on original
server but if we move a mailbox to the new server, the
user cannot forward, delete or send a new message using
OWA. The mailbox recieves new mail and it can be read,
but it ends there. Can't add to Calander or contacts.
Missing some permissions setting, just can't find it. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.

What version of Outlook are you using, and if 98 or 2000, what mail support
mode? If you're not sure, look at the second line of Help | About Microsoft
Outlook -- it should say "Internet Mail Only" or "Corporate/Workgroup".
(Outlook 97, 2002, and 2003 don't ..."Message creation failed; mailbox is full."

After the management process runs, the old deleted items are still there.

I`m using Exchange 2003 sp1. I`ve recently migrated some mailboxes into a new
store in a new storage group. The new storage group is on the same server as
the old one, but on different disks.
I have a mailbox manager job that deletes mail from some of these mailboxes
every night, but post migration, mailbox manager doesn`t seem to be doing
I`ve checked that my LDAP query still works - it picks the correct mailboxes
to work on.

cannot change the name on the new server as this is already in production due
I'd suggest that you contact MS Product Support immediately.
