Exchange replication

I run three exchange servers for the Marine Corps and we 
are having three problems that seem to be related.  The  
three exchange servers (Exchange 5.5, Windows NT 4.0) 
handle just over 3500 users.  Due to various problems, 
I've had to rebuild these servers over the past six months 
a few times.  Every time we renamed the server the same 
name we encountered more problems, so we created a new 
name and put the server online.  Everything seems to be 
working fine now except for a few small things that we 
can't fix.  We had distribution lists set up on the 
servers that were working fine, now after the last 
rebuilding and renaming of one of the servers, email only 
gets to some of the people on the list, this is after 
deleting and recreating the lists and their accounts.  A 
second problem is the information store for one of the 
servers is not up to date.  There are only 500 mailboxes 
on this server and the IS is almost 25GB.  When I look at 
the mailbox resources on the IS, there are mailboxes there 
that aren't in the database, ones that used to be on that 
server, but have moved to another server.  I tried running 
the consistency adjuster with the option to remove unknown 
user accounts and that doesn't work. And the third problem 
is a user shares out his calendar and users who had access 
to it before his mailbox was moved to another server 
cannot view the calendar, even after removing the 
permissions and then adding them again.  Users who never 
had access to it can view it just fine after being given 
permissions.  It just seems that everything is getting 
hung up on an old location.  Is there a way to force your 
database and IS to constantly check that they match, I 
thought that it was supposed to do this automatically?

Problems with Exchange across multiple domains in same forest
Hey all, hoping I can get some help here: 1. Unable to view GAL for separate domain in same forest. Full GAL shows up in ESM but not in outlook. GAL that does show will update as new users added to first domain, but not second domain obviously. 2. Unable to authenticate to exchange server from second domain when setting up exchange connection. When setting up exchange connection using a user from first domain exchange works fine. Any help appreciated! -- ____________________________________________ Scott C. Reynolds - Tales From the SharpSide http://www.scottcreynolds....

Outlook disconnected from Exchange
I have just taken over a network that has 6 workgroup computers running Win XP Home and and Server running SBS 2003. All the computer accounts are in AD and the usernames and passwords are set to the same as the client pc's. The clients can connect to the shared server folders using the usernames and passwords, but when opening Outlook (cached mode) Outlook is saying that it is disconnected from Exchange. If I run Outlook on the server, these open fine and all clients can access email via OWA, but I cannot get these to connect to Exchange. Any help on this would be grea...

Exchange 2007 OWA Signatures
Will Exchange 2007 OWA have the option to attach a SIGNATURE? We have GIF, JPG files for our users and we would like to have this through OWA. Thanks. I don't see an option to attach any kind of files into your signature, at least with the build I have. It doesn't appear that the signature options have changed much over what is offered in Exchange 2003. Of course, that could change once Beta2 comes out - don't know for sure. You can pre-register for Exchange 2007 Beta2, which I believe should be out in a few more weeks.

Exchange Cached Mode
Hi- Is it not a good idea to have clients on the same LAN as the Exchange server run in cached mode? I know it is the default to have it on when installing Outlook 2003. Is there a way from the Exchange server to force any GAL changes to the clients if cached exchange mode is on (w/o touching every desktop)? We're going to be making some relatively large changes in the GAL and I want clients to have that info sooner than the 24 hrs it takes to have cached mode sync.

Exchange reporting/statistics
Hi all Does anybody knows if it is possible that Exchange (2003) can calculate how many e-mails that arrives in a public folder every day?

Exchange Transaction logs building up
I just realized yesterday that my transaction logs for my Exchange server were building up, so I started doing some reading. I found many places that say that when you backup Exchange any log files that were included in the backup are automatically deleted for me. Great.

Outlook 2007 setup requires exchange server?
Maybe you guys can give me some advice on this issue I am having with Outlook 2007 setup. I just installed a new copy of Office 2007, the previous version was removed. The previous version was pointing to an exchange server (at my old company). I do not use an exchange server, I point pop/smtp service. When I launch Outlook, it asks for login to the exchange server, I hit cancel. Then it asks for a new exchange server. I have none to give, so I hit cancel. It then closes Outlook. In other words I have no access to outlook menus to reconfig anything. I suspect there is ...

Exchange/ Outlook problem -!!
Ok... here's the problem: Running Exchange 2k3 with AD 2k3 and Outlook 2k3. On another user profile on the same client machine, I can add an additional user mailbox in Outlook to view the inbox with no problems. On this particular user's profile in XP Pro, when I configure his Outlook 2k3 to add the same user mailbox, it says that "the name cannot be resolved!" I figure there must be some sort of caching going on here that it's pointed to some wrong name or something in Outlook.

The client Outlook profiles will have already automatically updated to reflect the new server name, so you shouldn't have any...

Exchange 2003 vs. 5.5 question
