  • 1. Domain/Mailbox/SMTP address space migration
    Hi, Firstly I apologize for posting what I am sure is an old message but I need some guidance. I currently have two domains in two seperate countries, one in England where the company has an address space of and one in Ireland with an address space of I have established a trust between the two domains and now need to collapse the two exchange organizations and AD's into one. I am proposing to do the following: Use ADMT to migrate user accounts to the English domain under a Ireland OU Use Mailmig to migrate the exchange mailboxes to the migrated accounts (Is this as simple as that - does mailmig use sids to determine the correct account to migrate the mailbox to (I shall be migrating sidhistory) - do I need to create new mailboxes in the English domain first?) The main issue I have is the namespace issue, I believe I shall use a custom attribute to create a recipient policy for these users to add the name space to their accounts, but how can I make sure that during the move any new mail goes to their migrated account rather than their original account? Any help would really be appreciated..
  • 2. Groupwise 6 to Exchange Migration.
    I am in the process of using Mailmig.exe to migrate users mailboxes to the new Exchange 2007 mail system. However, I am having a reoccuring problem with the mailmig.exe utility in that as it goes through a mailbox, the error count increments, but the mailbox never actually appears to be successfully migrated..... The current one has been running for 144 hours. The folder where it is being migrated to has reached some ridiculous size and the number of messages in the mailbox is about 50 times what there is actually in it. I have tried repairing the account under Groupwise using console one but still the problem exists for this account and many others over 2Gb in size....... Has anyone successfilly there mailserver using this utility. I have also tried using Outlook 2000 to Migrate the Groupwise account, opening the Groupwise account in Outlook 2000 and saving as PST, and then opening this converted mailbox in Outlook 2007 but the "From Field" doesnt appear.....this has been deemed unacceptable by management. Thirdly I have tried using an IMAP connection from Outlook 2007 to the Groupwise server and then dragging over the mail to the Exchange Account, but the "to field" is missing and Groupwise bombs out and the server restarts. Any ideas anyone???

Cannot receive email smaller than size limit

Dear gurus,

I have a problem with my Windows Server SBS 2003 that I could not receive 
large emails ( ~4MB) when I set the Receiving message size as 20MB. 

The bounce back message is:

Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 16): 552 Request not completed, exceeded 
storage allocation

Would you please kindly help me out?

Thank you very much.
Desperate me.

I don't think the error is coming from the receivesizelimit settings. It 
looks like the recipient's mailbox size is reached. What happens if you 
send, say a ~5KB mail to the same recipient? I'd double-check your mailbox 
size limit settings.

deji , thank you your response. However, I didn't specify any storage limit 
to the mailbox though. Besides, I can receive an email of 2.5MB. 

In addition, I specified Receiving message size limit to be 20480 KB on 
Message Delivery Properties, under Global Settings. Would there be anywhere I 
can check to verify my settings, please?

Thank you very much.

OK, what happens if you set it to unlimited? Does this happen only on 
specific attachments?

Well, I just tried to set no limit on it, but it didn't help. I got the same 
bounced back. :(

btw, I tried to send that attachment in another format(.doc), but it didn't 
seem to help. I still got the same bounced back. Thank you very much.

Thanks for any info,

2.Mail blocked due to size when received size set to no limit

Our Exchange E2K servers have started to reject mail over 
2.8 Mb in size, even though we have set the incoming mail 
size to have no limits. This has only started within the 
last week.
Servers and users are governed by global policies so all 
are alike. Users are using Outlook 2000, although I do not 
think this point has a bearing on the fault. The servers 
are Win2000 SP3 with Exch Ver 6 Build 6249.4 SP3). Has 
anyone seen this fault before and if so, did they find a 
resolution for it.
Thanks in advance

Subject: Your mailbox is over its size limit

Importance: High

Your mailbox has exceeded one or more size limits set by your administrator.

Your mailbox size is 200000 KB.

Mailbox size limits:

You will receive a warning when your mailbox reaches 260000 KB.

You may not be able to send or receive new mail until you reduce your 
mailbox size. To make more space available, delete any items that you are no 
longer using or move them to your personal folder file (.pst). Items in all 
of your mailbox folders including the Deleted Items and Sent Items folders 
count against your size limit. You must empty the Deleted Items folder after 
deleting items or the space will not be freed.

See client Help for more information.

5.Monitoring received emails for "Total Size Received"

Exchange 2003:

I am working on getting a failover service so email that is sent to
our company will not be lost or returned.  I want to get an average of
the total email received and what the total size is for a time

Example: Over 6 hours we receive 12,000 emails. Total size of all the
emails was 100Mb.

This will help me is figuring out what recourses I need to have in
place when I have problems on my end.

Anyone know of an easy way?

I am not the sharpest spoon in the drawer, I just happen to know what
side to use.
