  • 1. Exchange 2007 and Sharepoint 2007
    Trying to get the OWA client configured to launch a SharePoint site. After logging into OWA and clicking documents, I click open and enter the URL of the sharepoint server and get the following message: "The location that you attempted to access cannot be showin in Outlook Web Access" I have entered the servername in the allow list on the Exchange Server for OWA. I'm also having a problem with UNC file share via OWA. I get the following message: "For security reasons, Outlook Web Access is configured to prevent access to this type of document or folder. For more information, contact technical support for your organization"
  • 2. Mailbox Increase
    Quick Question.... I've increased the size of a user's mailbox from 50MB to 75MB in Active Directory-> Exchange General->Storage Limits. When does this change take effect? I've run the Exchange Clean Up Agent, I've forced replication and the setting has still not taken affect. I've also had the user reboot and log back on. Any idea when I could expect the setting to change on the client end? I'm running Exchange 2000 on Windows 2000 Advanced server, with Outlook 2003 on a 2000 or XP machine, and AD 2003. Thanks!

  • 5. Cannot remove 1st exchange server
    I have recently moved exchange. Originally there was a SBS2k3 server, let call it MSTR, which was upgraded by transition pack to W2k3 Standard then W2k3 Enterprise. Then exchange was upgraded to 2k3 Enterprise. I have installed a new Exchange server, EXCHSRV1, joined the existing organization, sync'ed all public folders, moved the mailboxes and then ran through KB822931 to remove the 1st exchange store from the org. I changed our firewall, and SMTP connetor bridgehead configuration to route all smtp traffic to EXCHSRV1 but this failed. The traffic was being sent through but not picked up by the smtp server on the new exchange box. As soon as I turned the smtp traffic back to the MSTR, all was well. If I shut down the smtp virtual server on the MSTR, incoming email is down. I have recreated the SMTP connector with the new server as the bridgehead but still the same results occur. So now I have a new exchange server hosting all mail and public folders with the existing server relaying incoming mail to the new server. I am working towards moving everything off the original server to rebuild it as a new file server. What am I missing here? What steps can I take to remove the 1st exchange server completely? Thanks in advance, Seor

Public Folder permission inheritance??!!

i have a problem concerning the public folder permission inheritance.
I have Exchange 2003 SP1 and a user which is not a member of the
exchange admins.
He is responsible for a public folder called "tipps". He is the owner
of the "tipps" - folder an a group of other people are stage 6. The
other people should read and edit the tipps. Now the problem is when
the owner of the "tipps" - folder creates a new public folder under the
"tipps" one. He can access it but the other people do not see the newly
created folder. How change this?

Thanks in advance

What are the default settings on the folder he owns?
Since he's the owner, he can set permissions on subfolders as he pleases.

Use system manager to ensure the new folder is inheriting the rights from 
the Tipps folder.

Hello TimmyT,

thanks for your quick response. This is a a possibilty but i can only
do this when the user has already created the subfolders from tipps. If
he creates some new subfolders they will not inherit the permission. I
am searching for something like the "replace permission on subfolder"
in the ntfs. Does anyone has an idea?

Thanks in advance

As I mentioned, check the default permissions on the parent folder.

1.Public Folder Permission inheritance

I recently upgraded from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003 (still in mixed
mode).  I've noticed that when a new public folder is created as a
sub-folder of an existing public folder (ie one that was there prior to
the migration) the client permissions do not propogate from the parent
to the new sub.  The permissions on the newly created folder only give
access to the user who created it.  That user has to assign the
appropriate permissions (editor, reviewer, author, etc.) to the
appropriate users.

On Exchange 5.5, once the top level permissions were created they would
propogate down to any subfolders.  I had seen something about this
being different on Exchange 2003 (I think) but I cant seem to locate it

Can anybody shed any light on this one?  Is this the way it is now or
is there something I can do to make work like the old version?

3.Public Folder an inheritance permissions


we use public folders with MSExchange 2003. We inherit permission from the
top level folder to the folders below. How can I disable this inheritance of
permissions for some special folders?

Thanks a lot

4.Public Folder rights inheritance 2003

In Exchange 2003, in System Manager, I see how I can make 
permission changes in the public folders.  It works fine 
with one thing I can't figure out.  In order for me to set 
permissions I must set them explicitly on each folder, 
including sub-folders.  There is no obvious way to make 
the properties get inherited down the folder tree.  Does 
anyone know of a way to do this?  This client has a huge 
public folder structure.
