I have clients who would like to use the public folder and contact
sharing capability of Exchange without having the burden of housing
Exchange inhouse (currently they use POP email). So I looked at some
calendar and contact sharing tools on slipstick.com, but when I do
research on them, they seem flaky. I am also considering whether to
move them to an outsourced Exchange service provider such as Mi8, etc.
Does anyone here have experience with using managed/hosted exchange
service? What are the risks and pitfalls? Which provider has a great
track record? Thanks.

I have installed Exchange 2003 (new install) on a new install of
Windows Server 2003.
When I went to add info for the SMTP server (using Exchange Management
System - EMS) I navigated to
Servers - Exchange1 - Protocols - SMTP
There's no default SMTP server listed in there.
How can I get one in there?
Did you have IIS installed already?

a PRF file (as shown below) generates an exchange account within a
separately generated profile. I would like to change the PRF file such
that the exchange account is added to the already existing profile
called "Outlook" such that there is no need to switch profiles all the time.
What adjustments are needed? I think section 4 is the most important part.
Thanks for your help.
NB: XXXXXX denotes the account on the exchange server. In the code below
it is the name of the profile generated by PRF, as well.

we are currently running a mixed mode environment (Exchange 5.5 and

Domain A, and Domain B contains both 2003 and 5.5.
The problem that we have is that Exchange 5.5 DL's in doamin A show up
in the Exchange 2003 GAL, but Exchange 5.5 DL's from domain B do not.

I am new to Exchange administration. So please be gentle in reply...
Here is the Question:
My company currently has 1 exchange server. Recently it went down and we did
not have emails for almost 3 days before I could figure out a way to get the
database back (considering that there was no backup as it was failing).
Now it is all working perfectly well. My boss now wants me to put in a
secondary exchange server so that incase the first one fails it should
automatically switch over to the second one and there should be no down time.

Good Evening all,
We recently completed a migration from 2000 to 2003 Exchange. We sent an
email to all current users in the AD that we though had mailboxes and then
moved those mailboxes to the new server. I am not showing any existing
mailboxes on my 2000 Exchange server. I only the mailboxes I see on the old
server using the ESM are SMTP, System Attendant and System Mailbox.
When I run the 2000 Exchange CD and chose remove it brings up an error that

We have Exchange Server 2003 and have set the Limits under Deletion Settings

I found under our Server Properties in System Manager, the Mailbox

delete the items older than 30 days, or is it necessary to do something else
to have these items be automatically deleted?
Deleted Items Retention simply means that once you have emptied your Deleted
Items Folder, those items are not purged from the database for 30 days. DIR

schedule in Outlook. Does anyone know where this went to? So far I can't
seem to find it.

When a user X sends an email to user Y, user Y can find out all

in Outlook 2003.
This could be serious a security issue in some deployments.
Is there a way to hide the groups a user belongs to?
I can hide the members of Distribution Groups (user X is a member of)
from user Y, by configuring "Hide membership" of those Groups using Exchange Tasks option with AD-Users/Groups tool.
However, I cannot hide the members of Security Groups (...Store customers not syncing with HQ

Sometimes on my Exchange 5.5 server the exchange administrator console will

Thanks in advance.
Exchange 2000 does not support forms-based authentication. With some
programming, you could write either a simple web page to front-end it or a
more complex web page. However, I don't think you will get any of the
advantages of forms-based auth from W2K3 (such as session timeout).

The account that you are logged in with needs to have the correct

minimum permissions needed would be View Only Admin.
