Recovery Virtual server....
I want to create a virtual test lab/recovery environment for my domain.
has anyone else done this in the past?
i am think of creating this on a segmented network with exact replicas
of my DC and exchange server. although i have a question about
recovering databases to this test environment, would i basically need
to install my backup software on a machine in the test lab and restore
im a little confused on what the best way to do this would be.
Yes on the backup software. The problem might be connecting it to your tape
library. Make sure that the network is completely...Toolbar responds differently on different machine.
I created a simple MDI app with a couple of extra buttons on the toolbar.
The buttons work as expected on my machine but act differently on other
machines at work.
We are using Win 2000. I Any ideas.
What does act differently mean? Is the action different or simpy look and
feel is different? Have you made sure that you have the same DLLs at both
places. It could be that your comctl32 dll are different.

I recently came to know something unsettling. Our internal servers can send
mail via our exchange smtp protocol without the ip address being in the
relay list. I have been using the relay list exclusively, so I'm not sure
how this is possible. Below are the settings we have. If you can think of
any way this is possible and how to fix it, please let me know.
mailserver.ourdomain.com is the smtp address people are supposed to put into
programs for the smtp server. it is a dns cname for one of our exchange

I use Outlook 2003 to create emails. Using either plain

who uses Lotus Notes, and they hit reply to the email type

in the incoming mail in Outlook. If I use an alternative

can I do to fix this, how can I get the missing text back

I think that I have solved this.

My exchange 2003 has been working until 1/25/2005 when it suddenly began to
queue up email with the information that 'The remote server did not respond
to a connection attempt.' I've reviewed my settings (which haven't changed)
and checked to see if I have been put on a spam list (not). Any help in this
would be appreciated. Thanks.
FYI: It was also on this day that Active Sync began to fail with a 3005
error. OMA and OWA as well as RPC over HTTP continue to work. Hope this
additional info helps.

I'd like to configure a backup, remote SMTP server that would queue data
when ever our Exchange server or Internet connection is down. The second
server doesn't have Exchange installed but does have IIS 6. I understand
how to do this by configuring the DNS MX records but I don't know where to
start in configuring IIS SMTP to do this. Do I need to do anything on the
Exchange server to make this work? Does anyone know of any web tutorials
for this topic? Also once I've done this, what's the best way to test it?
Thanks in advance for any ideas
...How do I set the worksheet to save before closing?
When there is a change in a worksheet and I try to close it, a message asks
me whether I want to save the worksheet or not? How do I turn on this
notification before closing the sheet?
Open your workbook. Hit Alt+F11 or Tools-->Macro-->Visual basic editor
(VBE). On the left, double-click ThisWorkbook. Paste the following code into
the ThisWorkbook code window. Hit the Save diskette at top-left. Close the
VBE. Make a change to the workbook, and close it to test. Was the change
saved? Should be. :)

I posted this yesterday, with no response, and am posting again today as
this is clearly a bug in Office 2003. Office 2003 is not properly integrated
(well not at all!) with the IE setting "Reuse windows for launching
shortcuts" (Internet Options - Advanced). This causes severe readability
issues for users who need to make many url clicks from within Outlook, and
don't want multiple instances of the IE window opening.
See this for someone else's report of the same issue:

The Essential Business Server Premium pack appears to be ideal in terms of

BUT it appears that there will not be a version of this supporting Exchange

This means we put a significant investment into 3 year old software, rather
than catching the up-to-date flavour.

is it bad practice to have your dc as a file server as well. 100 people or
less. One dc is Exchange and the other is the file server. Just wondering

any thoughts appreciated.
Not necessarily. This is common for branch offices to use the DC as the

Anyone know how to go about doing this or having this same problem?
