What are all these extra mailboxes for?

If I go into first Administrative Groups, Servers, MyServer, MFirst Storage 
Group, Mailbox Storem, Mailboxes, I see the mailboxes I defined, but in 
addition, I see three additional mailboxes:

SMTP(MyDomain-{9D8977......}) -- this has a size of zero with zero total 
System Attendant  -- this has a size of zero with zero total items
System Mailbox -- this has a size of 361KB with 401 Items

Can anyone help by providing an explanation?

--thx, Joseph

Those are system mailboxes that provide a number of functions to
Exchange. Best to just leave them alone. :)

Exchange 2003 Mailbox move question
Hello, I am moving from one Exchange 2003 server to another Exchange 2003 server and a few mailboxes are taking a couple hours for the Outlook client to update to the new server. I know AD can play a role with replication but that's not the issue here. Can some let me know why it takes so long sometimes for the Outlook client to get redirected to the new Exchange server? There was detailed information on this with Exchange 5.5 (Directory cache). thanks, Larry ...

Mailbox forward
I need to setup an email address, however it needs to be forwarded to an external mail address. I tried creating a new user but with no exchange mailbox and then going to exchange tasks on the user and creating an SMTP address, this works fine if we send from an internal exchange mailbox, it forwards correctly, but if someone external sends to the newly created user the email bounces back. any ideas how to get this to work.

Some users are seeing intermitent errors in their Outlook 2000 clients. We are using Exchange server 5.5.

Does the 2003 junkmail filter work on additional mailboxes...
We have several associates that log on to view their mailbox BUT also access other mailboxes (i.e. user resumes@domain.com) using the additional mailbox feature (under the advanced tap for their email account.) Will the junk email filter work on the additional mailboxes that they have under their account? I couldn't ask for Support, via Passport, as it appears that Microsoft has not updated the serial number input box to accept the longer PID. No, when you open additional Exchange mailboxes in your profile, it only works on your mailbox. It will work on IMAP once the messages ar...

move mailbox fails
I had to move a mailbox from one database to another. Worked fine, except that there was a "ghost" left in the original database - it showed up with a red X on it and a size of 74K.

Previously disabled account can no longer access mailbox
All: I have a perplexing issue. I support a small office running Exchange 2003. They recently let an employee go and while deciding how to handle the individual's account, we disabled (not deleted) their AD account. I remembered in "old" 5.5 days that the admin could always log in to a mail store with the Exchange admin credentials, but as I found out that is no longer the case. The challenge now is that we re-enabled the users account and changed the password (we didn't know the original password0, but for some reason the account no longer has access to the mailbox. The...

LegacyExchangeDN and Renamed Mailboxes.
Another user had this same question about a week ago referencing tutu and toto. One MVP suggested to delete and recreate and another referenced getting rid of the NK2 file.

Why delete the account if everything else is fine? Also, as I state later, a brand new NK2 file produces the same result. We have some users who have changed their last names.

Mailbox size limits in 2003
I know I'm kind of asking the same question again, but I need to know if there is a Microsoft recommended mailbox size. I could swear I read somewhere that MS recommends a mailbox size of 250MB, but I can't find it. Surely MS has some opinion on this issue. I read the blog entry on mailbox sizes, but that is a very weak argument. I need something that says this is the recommended mailbox size because .....

Can I move a mailbox while the user is connected to it?
Hi, Can I move a mailbox to a new Exchange Server while the user is connected and using the mailbox through Microsoft Outlook? Thanks in advance Faustino Well, yes, but the user will not maintain their connection :-) It's generally not recommended to move mailboxes while Outlook is active - it normally shoudn't cause problems with the actual move, but different version of Outlook behave differently when the connection is forcefully closed. -- Ben Winzenz Exchange MVP "Faustino Dina" <ffdina@matusa.com.mx> wrote in message news:O8tO2tQwEHA.1400@TK2MSFTNGP11...

repication of mailboxes
Hi, My company has two head offices, one in the UK and one in Boca Raton FL. They both have exchange 2003 servers with the users mailboxes on them. After the hurricane in FL, they were without power. I wondered if there was anyway of replicating their mailboxes to our exchange server, say overnight everyday or something, so that if this happened again, they could access their mail via our server here in the UK? Any ideas or advice on how this might be done would be appreciated. The only way of doing this is with 3rd party replication software... E12 will supposedly allow you to do...

Mailboxes in Exchange 2003 Enterprise Server

TIA Nancy Stevens nstevens@tycoint.com There may be a physical limitation WAY up there, but I am not sure.
