Maintenance on Exchange
I have been looking over the threads here and did not see any real input
on this subject, performing maintenance, defrag the database, on Exchange
5.5 and 2K. I am also running through TechNet and find all kinds of
articles on how to do defrag and compact the databases but nothing that
offers any insight into doing this after so many transactions(e-mails sent
and received either internal or external), or over a period of time.
I am also finding the same thing on backups. All kinds of articles on
how to do it but nothing that says here a recomended way. I guess someone
...Exchange server unreachable after being moved
I hope you could help me with this issue.
We have two Exchange 2003 servers (A and B) in our organization. The server
A is the main server and as it was needed, server B was added in the same
Administrative group in the same site. But the last server (B) was ment to
inhabit in another country, so this server was sent to my coutry. Now they
both keep a constant communication via VPN.
The problem is that since de the server is here, only internal message can
be delivered (among mailboxes in this server) but not messages between
servers (I mean, a message sent from a mail...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

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

On a timesheet I need to ensure that when I enter in the times of a the DAY
shift that it is on or after 6:00 am. The finish time is not important as
the start time dictates the shift. For example, someone may start at 7:30
and work thro to 3:30 (or 15:50), this equals a day shift. I may have
someone else who starts at 6:00 am and finishes at 10:00 am, this also equals
a day shift.
I also need an AFTERNOON shift that starts at 12:00 (Noon). I believe if I
have the answer to the day, this will come easy to me (that is if the Noon
time doesn't become a hinderance??)

...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

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

I have been using Publisher 2000 and working fine. I have a webpage and just

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.
