Deleted Exchange admin mailbox
One of my clients runs a Small Business Server 2003 with the
associated Exchange Server. The server and the client workstations
are not connected to the Internet, and use Exchange for intra-network
communication. (A single workstation, not connected to the network,
has been setup as an external email terminal).
A few days ago we had trouble when we had to create a new user; and we
observed that Windows did not create a mailbox for the new user.
Figuring that the account was not created because we used up a
restricted number of licenses, my coworker and I opted to remove
mailboxes that we kn...Additional mailboxes not displaying "Mailbox -" before the name
I have seen this with all different versions of Outlook.
When you add an additional mailbox to be displayed, it
does not always display as "Mailbox - Smith, John"
Something it will just display as "Smith, John" Why is
this? Mailboxes are both running off E2k or E2k3 and on
the same exact server. I have seen it originally being
displayed as "Mailbox - Smith, John" but then I recreate
the profile and "Mailbox -" disappears. How do I get it
back. Is this an application problem? Is there a
registry hack to fix it?

We've upgraded a department here from Office 2003 to 2007. Ever since we are
having issues managing a shared mailbox. The users from that vertain
department want to use the function categories with colors in the inbox of
that shared mailbox.
Now the issue is only the last person that loggs on to that shared mailbox

Due to a legal action I need to export all email from our Exchange 2007
server that has certain keywords. I have figured out how to do this using

I recently renamed an Exchange 5.5 mailbox and assigned it

properties. Or is there a better way to change mailbox
Thanks in Advance
you cannot change the directory name of the mailbox...you can change almost
anything else, but to change that, you need to delete and recreate the

I have just started admining a new server and there are performance

...Forwarding Unknown Recipients to Single Mailbox
We have a new Exchange 2003 installation and I have a problem.
How do I configure Exchange to route all the unknown recipients of our local
domains to a specified postmaster mailbox.
I found the following instructions:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;315631 which talk
about creating a new SMTP Virtual Server which is treated as a smart host by
the Default SMTP Virtual Server. We then have to create a VB ActiveX DLL and
use it with an Event Sink to route all the mail.
Initially does anyone know of an easier way to do this with Exchange 2003.

We use Exchange 5.5. I've set up a rule whereby mail to a specific user
gets forwarded to a webmail address. That works OK, except if it's internal
mail, then his name gets put as the sender. If it's external mail, it
doesn't (which is what we want). I'll try and explain myself better by

can specify it to open the additional mailbox. The thing is, it is diplayed
as so "Mailbox - User Name", and because these people work in an open
workgroup type environment this box may be visible to people that look at
her desktop. Can that be renamed? Named to display something else, or am I

recommendation of how much storage space the average user will probably need
