Using different email addresses in exchange/sbs 2003 R2



  • 1. Wizzard can not install ISA Server 2004 error
    After installing SBS and from the premium CD SQL2005 I try to install ISA 2004 and get the above error message. Any advise how to fix that?

    I've got a client that has an existing SBS2k install that I'll be swinging to SBS2k3 soon. The SBS2k install was initially done using the same domain name as their public presence ( This has obviously caused a number of problems over the years. Are there any alternatives to rebuilding the domain from scratch to resolve all the inherent problems with this setup? Thanks for the help. -Nick
  • 3. Default SMTP Virtual Server Properties
    Hello, all! I am using SBS2003 Premium with ISA (Exchange SP2) with two NICs. About six months ago, we changed ISPs, and using the CEICW wizard, I changed the external IP address to the new address provided. SBS has been working well, e-mail coming and going as expected, etc. I was looking at the Default SMTP Virtual Server Properties this morning (no reported problems, just looking at settings for better understanding of what is going on beneath the surface), under the Access tab, and then pressed the 'Relay' button under 'Relay Restrictions'. 'Only the list below' button is selected, and in the list of computers is the old external IP address of my previous ISP (plus the loopback address and the SBS server internal IP address). The loopback ( and the SBS server IP address I understand, but should there be the external address from my current ISP be there, and not the old ISP external address, or none at all except the first two? About two years ago, I did have an issue with e-mail (with the old ISP), and after fighting with them, I solicited help from Microsoft via remote access, and a technician did make some adjustments for reporting purposes, and I believe the old ISP external address may have been placed there at that time. My question is: should I not delete the old external IP address, and NOT put my new external IP address back in that list? Thanks for your help! -- Best Regards, Mark
  • 4. OT: Blackberry V Windows Mobile
    Hi, What are the advantages over one or the other in the SBS setup ? I don't know much about BBs but am happy with my Windows phone. I ask as a potential customer has a server running just for the BBs.I don't know much about them, but will go looking and reading now. Is there a 'killer' reason why they would use these over mobile devices ? simon

Using different email addresses in exchange/sbs 2003 R2

Postby Craig Armitage » Sun, 29 Oct 2006 21:12:19 GMT


I have a number of small businesses with different email addresses.  They 
are stored at different pop mailboxes at my ISP.  I can collect the email 
using exchange and route it correctly but there are 2 things i dont seem to 
be able to do.

1) when sending out a new email, I don't seem to be able to change the reply 
address "on the fly".  When using a standard email client (without 
exchange), if you have more than one account, you can specify which identity 
you are emailing out on at the time of writing the email.  is this possible 
with exchange?

2) When replying to an email, again the outgoing mail has my default email 
address, rather than intelligently using the email address it came in on (or 
at least the domain).

I hope I made sense!

Thanks for any help

This is normal behavior. Your mailbox can send only as the default address 
defined in its properties in ADUC. You can check out ChooseFrom at for an option....or, you will need to create different 
mailboxes or groups for the other addresses and use the From field, after 
you've granted yourself appropriate permissions (Send As). It's a bit of a 
pain,.although using a mail-enabled group, rather than a bunch of mailboxes, 
does make it a little easier (and keeps sent items and new mail in one

I know my ISP blocks port 25 and I've tried to change settings to port 465,

I can send emails if I use outlook express as a pop account using my ISP

3.SBS 2003 and adding a Server 2003 R2 Standaard with Exchange 2003 Standard

I have a SBS Server 2003 that is becoming overloaded. I need to offload
some of it's functions to another server. So I bought a new Server 2003
R2 and Exchange 2003 Standard with 55 Exchange Cals. I've got the new
server setup for the following Roles: File Server, Sharepoint Services,
Print Server, Application Server, DNS Server and WINS Server. What I
want to do is make this the only exchange server on the system and
remove exchange from the SBS server. In addition I want to move
Sharepoint, VPN and FTP over as well. Basically I want to make the SBS
Server just a File Server. Everything else will run on the new server.
I'm running into some major problems though. I did not make the server
a Domain Controller because I did not think it needed to be since the
SBS does all of this. Yet when I create a user account using the SBS
add a User Wizard it puts the account into the new Servers information
store. If anyone trys to e-mail them the message is bounced. If I try
to move the mailbox from the SBS box using System Manager when I click
on the Server Administrative Group I get this:

The Action could not be completed because the Microsoft Exchange
Information Store is unavailable. Be sure the service is running and
you have network connectivity to the Microsoft Exchange Server

Operation: Retreving Mount Information
ID no: c1041721
Exchange System Manager

I know why the messages bounce because I have not comeletely setup the
IP routing or anything for the new Exchange Server. If I log onto the
new server or RDC to it I can move the box just fine back to the SBS
server then everything works. So I figured It may need to be a Member
Server DC to function properly so I tried DCPROMO and it fails saying
that there is an incompatibility in the Schema and it needs to be
upgraded before I can perform the operation. I tried to update the
schema using forestprep and domainprep but it says the schema is
already up to date.

I really dont care if it's a DC or not. I just want to integrate it in
with the system. I'm not using a hardware firewall but rather the SBS
firewall that's built in and I was planning on setting a one to one ip
for the new exchange server and port forward the ports required to it
for it's other services once I got it working. But I'm stuck. Can
anyone help. There is nothing on the new server and it can be
completely wiped out and started over if needed
