www.sir...Recipient Filtering in Exchange 2003
I've read M$ article 823866 and I'm looking at enabling Recipient
Filtering. Has anybody tested/enabled this feature in Exchange 2003?
Are their any "gotchas" I need to look out for? Does this feature
increase CPU load - I figure it might as the server must now query a
GC *during the SMTP conversation* to verify that the recipient address
is in the GAL. Are their any negatives with regard to this setting?
Does it aid spammers, perhaps, with Directory Harvest Attacks?

As long as you no longer have NT 4.0 BDCs you should be able to move to

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

to sending to the domain A record. This causes an immed...Exch 5.5 public folder duplication

Copy the priv.edb and priv.stm from your MDBDATA Folder of your Exchange

this. You will also have to remount the database and and reconnect user
mailboxes on the test server.
