Mailboxes in Exchange 2003 Enterprise Server

I have implemented a policy to limit the mailbox size to 
30000 K and implemented a 21 day Age Limit. However, 21 
days has passed and the 30000 K limit has passed on more 
than 50% of our mailboxes. How can we enforce this policy 
to work properly and clean out the mailboxes to bring this 
down to 30 K.

The policy I have created is running and reporting is 
enabled.It is configured for report only, but I would like 
this to change to "Move to deleted items folder". However, 
since nothing seems to happen as of yet...I am hesitant to 
make the change until I can see a change and that there is 
somehting working. 

Any ideas on how I can configure this properly, test it 
and see that the mailboxes are getting down to the limit 
of 30000. Some of the mailboxes are at 215,000 and we 
haven't gone live yet..since this is internal e-mail...

Alright, you created a mailbox management policy, but did you schedule the mailbox management process (server's properties) ?

You can still run the mailbox management process manually by right-clicking the server's item in ESM and you should receive the reports.

Mailbox on Exchange Front-End Server
Can you create a mailbox on an Exchange 2003 Front-End Server? When you make Exchange a FE server, it then assumes all internet protocols are to be proxied to the BE servers. It can't proxy to itself. If you put mailboxes on it, only MAPI connections could reach them. Depending on your deployment, there may be security implications of allowing that. Can you? I think so. Should you? Probably not. William "John Blake" <anonymous@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in message news:19f8501c44d87$e00c6950$a001280a@phx.gbl... > Can you create a mailbox on an Exchange 20...

impossible to access the "news" from outlook 2003
I wanted to set-up my newsgroups access In outlook 2003. I followed the documented procedure (toolbar/standard/customize) from the help menu to add the "News" selection to the "GO" menu. It worked but when I exited Outlook and got back later the "news" menu disappeared. I tried to reinstate it following the same installation procedure but the News option is no more available in the "toolbar/customize list". Looks like a bug. Has anybody faced the same issue ? Is there a workaround to access the Newsgroup interface ? Thanks, Laurent conflicts ...

New Server
I currently have Exchange 2000 on an older server (Windows 2000). I also have Exchange 2003 on a 1 year old server (windows 2003). I've recently purchased a new server to replace the old server (windows 2000) with (windows 2003). I have moved everything off the older server except exchange. I can actually power the machine down and have no problems running the two newer servers. However, I would like to install Exchange 2003 on the newest server so that we have a backup exchange server. Can I just bring down the oldest server, bring it off the network, and remove it with no problem...

Excel 2003 Print Issue

Outlook 2003
We're on Exchange 2003 and have started rolling out Outlook 2003 in place of Outlook 2000. In Outlook 2003 by default all folders come up grouped by day and with solid lines between the messages. Everyone hates these "features" and has made a point of telling me so. Yes, each individual folder can be changed back through the user interface but that's a non-solution for 100 users that have an average of 25 folders each plus the 50 or so public folders as well. Is there any way to change this default behavior in Outlook 2003 so that all folders come up without the solid lines...
