Cannot reinstall Exchange 5.5 on Small Business Server 4.5

Our Small Business Server 4.5 crashed yesterday and could only be
started by doing a repair of  Windows NT.  Unfortunately, this left the
Small Business Server programs partially installed.  Now, Exchange will
not start.  It has the message "A connection could not be made to the
Microsoft Exchange Server".  I tried to reinstall Exchange, but get the
message "This component is already installed and cannot be modified".
Microsoft Exchange does not appear under Add/Remove Programs, so I
cannot uninstall it either.  Any suggestions would be greatly

This can get very tricky. Do you have backups? I'd suggest getting 
someone to help you in person.

Exchange 2007
I've been running the Exchange 2007 evaluation. On one of my configurations my messages weren't getting through so I tried to look at the mailbox size and the users connected.

Q: Exchange 5.5 logging options?

Freeing up space on an Exchange 5.5 server
Hello everyone. I got some very usefull advice to move some of the uninstall directories out of the C:\winnt directory to another location to free up space on the C drive. In my ongoing effort to free up space on this Exchange 5.5 server I found a .TMP folder in the following directory c:\documents and settings\admin1\local settings\temp. The folder is called WZS47.TMP and dated 01/14/02. It looks like it contains an installer for an old anti-spam product that is no longer installed on the server. It is about 50 MB in size. Do you think it is safe to delete it? Thanks. On Thu, 8 Sep ...

Removing the First Server Exchange Server
We are currently trying to remove an older exchange 2000 server. We followed through the appropriate KB articles and then turned off the server before permanently removing it. Everything seems to be fine that day, but by the next morning some users complain that exchange is running very, very slow. But its only a few people. These symptoms go away once the server is turned back on. Any thoughts or suggestions? Have you replicated all the system public folders to the new server and are all the users pointed to the new server we found a couple that did not "follow" the m...

Outlook 2007 Keeps Prompting for Password (Exchange 2003)
Sorry if this post came through twice. ***** Friend, I'm using Outlook 2007 to connect to Exchange 2003. Everything is working well for the most part but for some reason Outlook periodically asks me for my username/password. The problem persists even when I click the "remember username/password" checkbox. I don't understand why this is happening. Outlook and Exchange are both on the same LAN so it's not like I'm losing my connection or anything. What's causing this? It usually happens if Outlook has been open but inactive for a while and I try to do something l...

How to Backup Exchange 5.5
We're running Small Business Server 4.5 which comes with Exchange Server 5.5. I'm totally new to Exchange Server, but I'm responsible for backing it up now. :-) So, would someone mind telling me exactly what I need to do to backup all the e-mails, contacts, etc. in Exchange so that I could restore them if we had a disaster. I'm looking for the easiest (maybe not the most efficient) way to do this. We're currently using a backup product from a company called OnStream. As far as I can tell, it's just a 'dumb' tape backup with no Exchange-specific functionality...

Exchange 5.5 standard hit 16gb limit!
Exchange server standard 5.5 hit 16gb limit. seems the admin account used for internet connector service has about 2 million messages in it. Theres only a gb or so left on the drive, I cannot delete that users mailbox. Im guessing because its a logged operation and theres not enough diskspace for the log. I dont have the mailbox cleanup wizard from sp3, what can be done? A defrag of course wont work since it needs 10% additional (still wouldnt cleanup those 2 million messages!). So.. it comes up and a few minutes later goes down again. How else can I get these messages removed with this...

Exchange Disaster Recovery #4
We are using Exchange 2003 with Veritas 9.0. Individual mailbox backup was taking way too long so now I'm just backing up the malibox store.

If I can, what are the procedures for doing so? Kind Regards, Ali On Sun, 14 Aug 2005 13:31:38 -0400, "obgyn" <> wrote: >We are using Exchange 2003 with Veritas 9.0. Ind...

How to disable the "implicit mx record" in Exchange
I am having a problem with exchange sending to hosts in recipient domains where these hosts are not actually mail servers. After a lot of review of the SMTP logs, I realized that sometimes Exchange is sending to the correct MX record host, and sometimes it is sending to the host with the A record for the actual domain. When I say the record for the domain, I mean an A record that refences the bare domain name rather than an individual host in the domain. So when Exchange gets a DNS timeout looking up an MX record, it falls back to sending to the domain A record. This causes an immed...
