Port 25 telnet on Exchange 2K3 servers
Installed 3 new Exchange 2K3 SP2 for a client the other day, but unable to
telnet to port 25, even on the servers them selves...
the servers are 2 Enterprise & 1 standard 2K3 SP2, they also have Mcafee
Antivirus ( file level with Exchange folder exclusion ) and Mcafee
GroupShield on them...
Curiously all email functions are ok, able to send and receive internally
and to Internet, just not able to telnet to port 25 on any servers...
If I add another port to the SMTP VS, then able to telnet that port, but not
25, so I think one of the Anti-virus programs is stopping port 25...
...Exchange 2003 SP2 Q
I have a few fundamental questions.
1) Can Antivirus software for Exchange Server that uses AVAPI Version 2
corrupt the store database?
2) Is it possible for MAPI client like outlook 2002 and 2003 corrupt the
3) Can third party backup software corrupt the store during backup?
1. I've never seen this happen, though I wouldn't say it is impossible.
2. Same as 1.
3. I've never seen the backup software itself corrupt a mailbox store.
Usually, backup software is one of the mechanisms to let you know that there
is corruption...Exchange e-mail address attributes?
I'm writing a script to find all a users e-mail addresses (to get rid of old

I'm also interested in updated lists of ad and exchange attributes. I've got
some xls files but they're old and only have text descriptions of very few
of the attributes.

...Publisher 2000 to Publisher 2003
I have been using Publisher 2000 and working fine. I have a webpage and just
Save as Webpage and then upload to my server. Now that I have XP and
Publisher 2003 I don't see the Save as Webpage, only Publish to Web. Have
tried this and it doesn't open after it has been uploaded the way it did
before and it takes longer to upload than 2000 did. Probably doing something
wrong and just wanted to see if someone else has had this problem or what I'm
doing wrong. Have a good day.

Have a customer who has a telephone system that uses an IMAP connectionj to
the users Inbox to pick up voicemails.
Since upgrading from Exchange 2003 (SBS2003) to Exchange 2007 (SBS2008) this
has stopped working.
Users userrnames and passwords are still the same.
I've setup Outlook to make an IMAP connection to their mailbox but this
doesn't appear to work, I guess this is why their telephone can't logon
I just get a box come up prompting for a username and password ??

I know there is a white paper on this. Can someone point

The first step would be to move all of the mailboxes to the newer server.
The second step would be to decommission the older server. I have included a

We are planning an upgrade of our Exchange 2000 systems to Exchange
2003. The current Exchage 2000 systems are 2 node clusters
Active/Passive and the upgrade will be done by evicting an Exchange
2000 node and then rejoining a Windows 2003/ Exchange 2003 server to
the cluster with shared storage.
Has anyone done this and what is their experience in regards to how
long the Exchange DB upgrade may take (in general/ your experience in
relation to size of DB)? Also as to what the best PerfMon counters are
to watch during the upgrade process.
