  • 1. Asynchronous Bounce
    I've been asked to check if our Exchange Server issues an asynchronous bounce for unknown users. I don't even know where to begin to look for this. Can someone give me step by step instructions. Thanks
  • 2. Configured Exchange 2003 to use Smart Host to deliver mails but does not download emails from a catch all account
    I configured Exchange 2003 to use my ISP as the smart host and they've configured just one e-mail account for me as a catch-all account for my external domain. Now clients (with their accounts in AD) can easily send e-mails to external domains in internet but when I try to send emails from external domain (say yahoo or gmail) to a recipient in AD, Exchange seems doesn't download emails from my catch-all account in ISP. Please help me what is wrong here?
  • 3. Moving data to new drives
    I have W2k3 with E2k3 in a clustered envrionment. I have just moved all of my .edb and .stm files to a new set of shared storage. The only thing left on the original drive is a folder that contains the following folders: Config, GatherLogs, Projects and several clust0.0 - clust5.1 8KB files. I need to remove the old disk resource and disks. How can I safely move the afore mentioned files and folders. I think they are related to MS Search instance but I'm not sure.

GAL / Exmerge problems

Postby Tim » Wed, 07 Jul 2004 20:57:34 GMT

I just took over this company from another tech.  I need to 
Exmerge one user's mailbox out before I can delete it.  
Exmerge fails with the following error: "Error opening 
message store (MSEMS). Verify that the Microsoft Exchange 
Information Store service is running and that you have the 
correct permissions to log on. (0x8004011d)"

Everything else is working perfectly, I can Exmerge other 
mailboxes out, just not this one.  She is not showing up in 
the GAL either.  I removed the "hide from GAL" check, but 
she still seems hidden.  I can see her mailbox in ESM, but 
not through Outlook.  Any ideas?

Depending on the version of Exchange, it will take time to show up.
You won't be able to exmerge until it shows up in the address list as
a visible mailbox.

1.Exmerge and GAL problem

Some more information:

We have two different GAL's, hosting two different companies.

We have 'administrator' and he is member of the 1st GAL, he has no problem
to do exmerge on users belonging to the first GAL but users belonging to the
2nd GAL we get this error:

"Error extracting information from server DN ''

I created a new user with administrator rights (Member of same groups as
'administrator') and made him member of the 2nd GAL he can do exmerge of
users belonging to the 2nd GAL but not of users from the 1st GAL so that
couldn't has anything to do with permissions or is it like Microsofts
comment "It's by design" ;-)

Anyone having a clue how to make a user able to making exmerge of users?
