Real Exchange 5.5 issues

I just attempted to upgrade my Exchange 5.5 server to sp4.  It was not the
smoothest process to say the least.  When I open the exchange administrator
console and click on the help menu then about it says version 5.5 (build
2653.23: Service Pack 4). However when I check the properties on the server,
it says version 5.5 (build 2448.8: Service Pack 2).  When I start the
exchange admin in raw mode there is no way to change the version of the
server and I am receiving errors when I try to generate new email addresses
(KB article 158336).

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Aaron

Hi Aaron,

I would suggest disabling any AV or Spam Filter that you have on the Server
and then attempt to reinstall SP-4. If it gives you any errors write them
down and let us know what they are.

Hope this helps,

Exchange SP2 question
Is there any impact installing SP2 on a dedicated SMTP and Public Folder Exchange Servers without installing it on the rest of the Exhange Server? I plan to do the rest of the Exchange Servers about 1 month after I install it on the SMTP and Public Folder exchange Servers. There are no mailboxes on the SMTP or Public Folder Servers. thanks in advance There should not be any impact although running at two different SP levels for a month is probably not ideal. Any way you can shorten the difference. Nue RichardScott wrote: > Is there any impact installing SP2 on a dedicated SMTP a...

10.1.4 for non-exchange users, Spam Sieve
Can anyone tell me if I'm likely to suffer dire consequences from installing Office update 10.1.4? (or 10.1.5 for that matter).

I'm only wanting to install it to see if it affects the useability of Spam Sieve anyway, so any thoughts about that would be very welcome!

Real Problem!
One of my users is getting Mail Delivery error messages saying that the message cannot be sent because the following address cannot be found. the users are mostly all@aol.com, but the thing is, she is not sending the messages.

Reset permissions
I'd like to know if there is any documentation anywhere on how to reset all permissions on all users mailboxes? Basically over the years various people have added special permissions etc and some people can now access things due to group memberships that they shouldn't be able to see. I'd like to know the very minimum users/permissions that need to be set on the all parts of the exchange server that will give each user access to their own mailbox and no-one else (unless specified) many thanks I believe you can do this with ADModify , but you have to be very careful doing...

Hi, I was wondering if anyone can tell me if its possible to do the following with KVS's exchange vault.

Removing Exchange 2000 server
I am unable to remove the server because it has three mailboxes, two of the system attendant (o iterm) and systemmailbox (3000 items) and SMTP (0 items). I can't find users that fit the mailboxes but i can do a search in users and computers and see them and delete them but they are still there today... So until i get these users out i can't remove the Exchange server from the system. charlie Verify there are no users with Mailboxes or Exchage Attributes on the server you are trying to delete.

Query re Microsoft CRM-Exchange E-Mail Router
We're thinking about purchasing Microsoft CRM. Question: if an email is directed to an address that shows up in Microsoft CRM, is the email a) no longer stored on the Exchange Server but only on the SQL server pointed at by CRM b) on both c) just on the Exchange Server but incorporated from there by the CRM system. Where can I find more information or documentation on this feature of Microsoft CRM? In general product description documentation seems very weak.

4smartphone Exchange .prf Issues with Outlook 2003
All - I just signed up with 4smartphone Hosted Exchange Server last night. The original exchange .prf file imported into Outlook 2003 just fine and I was able to sync up with everything. Well, because of my stupidity, I ended up removing that new exchange account from outlook, re-imported my backed up ..pst file and then tried to once again import the 4smartphone .prf - no luck. The second time around there is no setup after outlook opens - nothing. It just opens to my normal personal folder and checks mail. Is the .prf file good only once and then it doesn't work properly?

Exchange 5.5 Daylight savings time
According to Microsoft website: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/timezone/dst2007.mspx near the bottom of the article details about a Daylight Savings Time Patch that is available for companies with Customer Support Agreements (CSA) for Exchange 5.5. Well, we have Exchange 5.5, but it is our understanding that Exchange 5.5 uses the local server time to DST settings (which we can edit).

moving exchange #3
Hi all I currently have exchange 5.5 on an nt4 box. I need to put it on another machine which is running 2000 server sp4. The server is using a different name and I was wondering if there is anyway of moving over the users and their mailboxes without having to back them up in to pst files for each user Many thanks Glenn This may or may not help. You can use EXMerge to move the mailboxes. However, I do not know if EXMerge works on 5.5, so if you find out it does, just set up exchange on the W2k box and EXMerge the boxes over. You could also try it another way, set up exchange on the...

How to migrate Exchange from parent to child domain?
Scenario: W2003 Forest consisting of 2 child domains. Single Exchange 2003 server in root domain, containing mailboxes for accounts in all three domain. We want to add a second Exchange server in one of the child domains for the mailboxes for this child domain only. What's the best way to approach this? TIA. You'll be joining the same Exchange org and probably Admin group so the only question is will you need a different routing group? This will depend on whether or not the child and parent domains are at separate sites. Regardless of the routing group you should just be ab...

Exchange 2003 SP1 and SP2 compability issue
Hi expert, I have 3 Exchange 2003 with SP1 installed. May I know is it possible to upgrade 1 member server to SP2 only? so the rest(1 member and 1 primary server) are still running with SP1. any official document regarding this issue?

Restore Exchange backup to a NON-exchange machine
Greetings, I have a corrupted database on an exchange2003 server. The last known "Good" backup was with ntbackup on 9/18. I would like to recover the files (priv1.edb and pub1.edb and the logs) to a Desktop so that I can try to repair and recover them. The BKF file will not restore to a machine that is not an exchange server. There are two of us working on the files. My consultant is on the server and I'm working on a desktop. We have been down for 24 hours and timing is important. Can it be done ???? Thanks The online backup must be restored to an Exchange server....
