sbs 2003 mail stays in queue
Hello, a sbs2003 server has a problem with one user.
when i send a mail internal or external to this user it comes in the
exchange queue but never reaches the mailbox.
mailadres is correct.
also when i use webmail on the server (server/exchange) and login with
that user and send a email to himself it appears in the send items but
never in the inbox.
Also no errors in the event log.
can anyone help me out?

When people forward messages to me, the forwarded message arrives as an .eml
I am using Outlook 2003.
How can I get the system to not convert the forwarded messages as .eml
attachments, rather in-line text in the e-mail?
They've probably chose to forward as attachment and are using Outlook
Express or Windows (Live) Mail.
Have them use a normal forward instead.

Real World...Exchange 2003 & GFI Faxmaker 10 ???
We have Exchange 2003 with Win 2003 Domain...
We're thinking of installing GFI's Faxmaker 10 in another server
(split installation) which will extend the Active Directory Schema (I
think it adds a tab, doesn't it? )and we're deeply concerned whether
it'll create any kind of problem...
Has anybody out there done this ?
Must inform that we have GFI MailSecurity 8 installed in VS API mode
and no problems encountered so far...
I'd really appreciate your answers...
I can tell you from experience that the GFI product isn't

I have a forest and a domain with 3 Windows 2003 Server DCs. In order to
make a test during 2 weeks, I have to install and promote a Windows 2008
Server R2 into DC (without particulary role).
I know I will have to do an ADPREP with the W2K8 R2 DVD but forest and
domain will not change their level.
2 weeks after I will retrograde the server as member and suppress it from
the network (It will leave only W2K3 severs).
Do you know if there could be a problem for the AD architecture ?
Thanks in advance.

Hi, I'm trying to send an email that is 26MB in size and configure
Exchange 2003 SP2 to allow it. Each time I try and send the email I
receive the following undeliverable;
"Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.
The following recipient(s) could not be reached:
firstname.lastname@example.org on 29/11/2005 11:54
This message is larger than the current system limit or the
recipient's mailbox is full. Create a shorter message body or remove
attachments and try sending it again.

Forgive me if this has been asked before!!!
We have 1 exchange 2003 Enterprise edition sevrer in our AD Forest. I want

We have a client who is secretly having us forward all e-mails sent to

sub-folder of his Inbox). Additionally, I have set up a Transport Rule to

The rule is very basic....

2) from people or distribution list (then select "PersonX")

I may be bonkers but I believe before I loaded the beta of Pub 2003 I could

offers printing and help dosent help...
Is this a capability or not?
Publisher now lets you create an HTML publication for emailing through
Outlook. It still won't allow you to mail-merge to email.

Have one Exchange 2003 front End server and two Exchange 2003 back end
servers. Have not installed any service packs on these systems yet. Just got

be the best process to install these ? Do I need to go to SP1 first then SP2
or does SP2 contain SP1 updates as well? Do I do the front end server first?

I have MS exchange server 2003 and XP SP 2 fully patched. DST tested ok but
for some reasons, appointments in the public folders are still 1 hour off.
Your help is appreciated...(EST Time).
You need to run the rebasing tools against Public Folders that contain
Calendar items (type IPM.Appointment).
You can do this using the patched Time Zone Data Update Tool for Microsoft
Office Outlook (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=933146), or using the
