  • 1. RPC over HTTP works but slow startup
    Hi, I have successfully got RPC over HTTP to work on a single server. Unfortunately though, it takes ages for the initial connection to succeed. Over broadband it takes around 3-4 minutes to connect the first time and strangely the connection status ALWAYS has 3 fails. Once connected it is nice and quick. Even resuming from a laptop suspend, Outlook will connect very quickly. Does anyone have any ideas? Do other people have a few fails before the successful connection? Any help appreciated...
  • 2. ActiveSync Problem
    I have just installed Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003 and I have an HP Ipaq 5550 I have configured active sync 3.7.1 to download items directly from the exchange server and I ahve setup the user name/password and server name correctly but when I sync it doesn't download anything and I don't recieve any messages. IT looks like it is doing something but I don't know what. Can you help ?

Can't send mail without authenticating the sender.

I have a Antivirus program that I have configured to send an e-mail when it finds a virus. The only thing a can set in the SMTP-properties in the Antivirus program is the name/ip-address of the mailserver. The mailserver is Exchange 2000. The problem is that the mailserver doesn't send any mail from the Antivirus program. I think it's like this because the mailserver requires username and password. How can I configure Exchange 2000 to except and send mail without authentication? I want computers in our LAN to send mail via the Exchangeserver.

Thank you

You can allow the IP address of the server running the antivirus product to
relay in your SMTP server properties.

Note - if this is for e-mail viruses, might want to consider turning off
notification entirely. It serves no real purpose anymore as it will reply to
the seeming sender of a message, who probably really *wasn't* the sender.
Most viruses spoof the sender's address.

1.Can't send mail to hotmail without Exchange Server?

Hi all,
Hope someone can shed some light on this one:
Running Outlook 2003 on WinXPP.
Outlook has 1 account in Cached Exchange Mode to Exchange 
2000 server.
Outlook also has 1 account to Hotmail using HTTP.
Everything works well, except..
If I'm not connected to the Exchange Server (working at 
home) and I compose a new message - I select the send-
through Hotmail setting using the accounts button.  When 
I click send.. the outlook widget in the taskbar tells me 
that it's trying to connect to the exchange server.
It never sends the message to hotmail - no errors either.
However, if I connect my VPN so my Exchange Server is 
connected, then the message goes straight through hotmail.
Sorry for the long description, but it seems strange to 
me that it would require a connection to an exchange 
server, just to send a message via hotmail.

2.E2007 some senders can't send 9MB attachments, other can send 30MB attachments

I have installed a new E2007 standard server, from most locations we can 
receive up to 50MB files without a problem. From 3 locations we can't 
receive 9MB files, but, they can send them to other servers (E2003 as an 
example) and they are received just fine.

When the senders were sending them to the old E2003 server there was no 
problem, we rebuilt the LAN from scratch, saving nothing, and installed 
a E2007 server and adjusted all of the limits to 60MB, even even the 
firewall is set to 100MB, and we never expect to see files larger than 
30MB, but we set the limits to account for encoding and extra.

So, if I send an email from another Exchange server (outside the LAN, 
from another company), up to 50MB, it works fine. If I send a 9-12MB 
attachment from  XXXX@XXXXX.COM  it seems to just hang in the smtp 
session without any log info that I can find - I can see the connection 
in the firewall, the SMTP session is active and we even disabled 
filtering in case that was it - even disabled all anti-spam options in 
E2007 and still it can't receive the hotmail attachments - if I send 
from the  XXXX@XXXXX.COM  account without an attachment it works fine.

E2007 Standard SP1 and updates installed, even increase the ESE from 
128MB to 512MB based on an article I read....

Any ideas?

You can't trust your best friends, your five senses, only the little 
voice inside you that most civilians don't even hear -- Listen to that.  
Trust yourself.
 XXXX@XXXXX.COM  (remove 999 for proper email address)

3.ccing send emails without the sender knowing


Is there a way to automatically cc me a  copy of the email the sender
sends out?
Without the person knowing?

I know I can use a rule but if the person checks the "sent items"
folder and opens the email it shows it cced to another person as well.
I also know I can use journal archiving(E2K).
Lastly I know I can give me mailbox rights to his account to access
email.[but if the person deletes all the sent email everyday- that
would be offf no use to me]

Is there any other option?


4.Exchange 2003 sending multiple emails without senders knowledge...

We are running Exchange 2003 and it is allowing multiple emails to be sent under the name of a user without the users knowledge. In the Extended Server Usage Report I receive, they are sending mail and there is no record of it in their sent items. How do I stop it?
