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...IS MY SERVER A RELAY?
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

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

...Configuring a backup SMTP server
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

...Changing Free/Busy Publishing Time
I wanted to change our publishing time from two months to 12 months. In
order to do this I implimented a group policy that changed this time.
The group policy seems to be effective in changing that value, however
when it comes to scheduling meetings, only two months are visible. The
only way I have found to rectify this is to run Outlook with a
/cleanfreebusy switch once. However, it doesn't seem practical to do
this across a large number of users. Is there any way I can do this
server side to acheive the same effect?

We are looking to upgrade servers (currently running WinServer 2003) - new
hardware and software.
The Essential Business Server Premium pack appears to be ideal in terms of
the software and package offered.
BUT it appears that there will not be a version of this supporting Exchange
2010 for some months.
This means we put a significant investment into 3 year old software, rather
than catching the up-to-date flavour.
So what's the difference between buying the EBS package and buying
individual software applications separately?
Also, is there additional software i...Changing Fonts

less. One dc is Exchange and the other is the file server. Just wondering

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

I've been an enthusiastic user of these wonderful MS newsgroups for years

Are the discussions continuing on a Web-based forum somewhere? If so, I'm
disappointed because I've found reading the message threads with a
