Outlook in Exchange environment
I've been asked to set up Exchange Server 2003 and implement it so that
users from both inside and outside our company can access it. I've played
with Exchange's web access client and that is working fine. What I'm testing
now is Outlook installed on individual workstations.
Can Outlook 2003 be configured so that it communicates and displays only
information (mail, contacts, calendars, and the such) that is stored on the
Exchange server. That is, when I install Outlook and it by default creates a
personal folder on the local hard drive, must I keep this or can I delete it
I heard that Outlook is not really as risky as one would think about getting
a virus attack and that Outlook Express is what is usally attacked. Is
there any truth to that? Can anyone share any experiences they have had
with virus attacks and Outlook? Please tell us your version number too.
These two articles will give you a clue as to which versions of Outlook are
most at-risk. Short version: if you use a current version and have all
updates installed, you are quite safe from everything except your own
http..."exchange domain servers" group query
Currently I have a forest with one parent domain and 4 child domains. We
have recently added a second DC to all the child domains. Their ability to
do exchange stuff is broken, they just come up with RPC errors. I think I
fixed that by installing the System Manager on them. Looking at the Exchange
Domain Servers group on the parent domain, it has the Exchange server as a
member, looking at the same groups on the child domains, it just has the one
original domain controller that each child domain had.
Now that we have a second DC in each child domain, should they be in that

I have read things like memory x 1.5 or memory x 2 or even higher. I
have read about putting the pagefiles in multiple directories on the
same physical drive (there is a technet article on this) - but nothing
that pulls it all together.

Would the same thing happen on a bridgehead or public folder server?

I have been backing up my exchange server using ntbackup (to disk the

etc. As a dr plan I created a test environment and ran a backup exactly
as I am doing on production server. When I am trying to restore however
I am having a problem. The problem seems to be they way I am backing

How do I know if I have the version of ntbackup that works with exchange? If
I don't have it, where can I get it?
We are running Backoffice 2003.
Thanks for all info.
If you have exchange installed, you have it.
If you need to run the backup from a remote server, you need to install the
Exchange Admin Tools on that other server (if memory serves correctly).

I have a exchange server 2003 connecting to a PDC and BDC which is running
in windows server 2003 and 2000. If my PDC is crashed, the BDC should be
taking over the role from PDC. But how do I check whether the BDC is working
fine or not?Please assist.
With AD there really isn't a PDC and BDC anymore.
What you need to make sure is that both DCs point to each other for DNS and
that Exchange points to both of them. Then make sure both are also GCs.
Shut one off and see if Exchange still runs.
Hope that helps,

We are planning to implement Exchange as our chosen email
system. We would like to utilise more than one domain
name for our users. Is this possible?
Secondly, on the assumption that we can have more than
one domain name, can a user have more than one account;
ie one in each domain name? Would the user then be able
to toggle between the two or more accounts to view/send
emails on each one?
One user has one mailbox only, and can have multiple SMTP email accounts.
no need for multiple user accounts and mailboxes.

I have an environment where I need do do an Exch 5.5 to 2003 Migration.
The domain has already been migrated from NT4 to 2003. The only thing

I need a way to read mailbox data (through a program) from an unmounted
store with minimal dependency on Exchange. The store is located (copied) on a
Windows 2000 Server machine without Exchange installed yet.
What I am seeking is a solution that does not effect the rest of active
directory/network by creating duplicates or conflicts and does not require
full fledged Exchange running i.e. ideally only few required Exchange Dlls
So, whats the best that could work in this scenario.

Mistakenly installed SP2 without SP1 on the server. Since the install and
reboot that followed, there are issues of periodic sluggishness/ bordering on
a (not responding) error for users. This isn't constant for all users but
more like a floating problem affecting different users at different times.
Does anyone know of a remedy for this?
Exchange SPs are cumulative, so it shouldn't matter.
You need to start troubleshooting - use tools like ExMon or the Performance
Troubleshooting Analyzer. Or plain old Performance Monitor of course.
