shared mailbox accountability\auditing
I heard MS has released a hotfix for Exchange server 2007 SP2 that enables
"accountability" when people send email from shared mailboxes. Do anyone
know anything about this?

That is correct but that is not what I had in mind. That only shows the last
login and logoff. I want a tally of the users logins to mailbox. Thanks for

Is it a good idea put 2,500-3,000 mailbox on Exch2003 Server or should be
better split this into two mailbox servers ? Db size would be 60GB, 10%
Should I be Ok with a Dual Proc or should I buy a 4 Proc for such number of
mailboxes ? I am also considering clustering this and I would like to hear
if clusters are working fine on exch2003.
Although Exchange can handle the 3000 mailboxes in a single box, you must
also take into considerartion if this machine fails then the whole
organiztion will suffer loss of e-mail service for some time. Think about

...Dealing with leavers mailboxes?
I've not got to cross this bridge yet, but I read something that
suggested that if someone leaves the company and you disable their
domain account, their mailbox can no longer receive mail.
Is this right?
Under 5.5 when someone left I'd disable their domain account (so they
couldn't logon obviously) and then either assign their manager
permissions to their mailbox on the mailbox permissions tab, or set new
mail to auto-forward via the delivery options tab.
If disabling the account isn't an option under 2003 how should I do it?

I am new to Exchange and this may sound like a dumb quesiton. Please excuse
I need to disable some users' mailboxes for a short period.
How do I do that in Exchange 2003 (Windows 2003 AD environment)
Depends what you're trying to accomplish. You could:
-disable their AD account. This will cause mail to bounce and prevent them
from logging in (to Exchange and anything else that uses their AD
- expire their AD account. Mail will continue to be delivered, but the user
will not be able to login.
- remove/change their SMTP email address from...SMTP e-mail is being delivered to a wrong mailbox
We had a mailbox XYZ with 2 SMTP addressess: SMTP1
(primary) and smtp2. After creating a new user ID 123 with
its own mailbox; deleting the smtp2 from XYZ, and adding
it to mailbox of account 123, half of the messages from
the Internet that are addressed to smtp2 still go to
mailbox XYZ - even though the only SMTP currently
associated with mailbox XYZ is SMTP1.
Any help on why this is occuring or how to resolve it
would be helpful.

An NT4 BDC with Exchange 5.5 running with W2k3 AD (as PDC emulator) in a

Note: old users are those created before the in-place (NT4 to W2k3) upgrade
and new users are those created after the upgrade.
Why can't new users access their Exch5.5 mailbox while all old users have no
problem accessing it? New users can only logon to the domain and that's it.
