  • What are the functions of system mailboxes?

    Hi All,
    Can anyone tell me what are the functions of Exchange System Mailboxes (system mail box, system attendance mailbox and SMTP mail box) ?

    Many people are explaining only how you can view system mail boxes. But not about the purpose of system mail boxes in exchange server.

    Thanks and Regards,

      Hi Wired,

      Thanks for your reply.
      Actually I googled it before I post here and I can't find any post which explained what are the purposes of these system mail boxes. They just say how many types of system mail box and how to view the contents of the system mail box. Not about their purposes and functions in Exchange Server.

      Can you guide me other references please?

      Thanks and Regards,
      Thu Ya

        They are system mailboxes.
        There is nothing in them that you need to view, and they are best left alone. They are used for managing the system.
        Why do you want to know?

        The only place that there might be information on them is in the Technical Reference guide from Microsoft, but if not, then that information hasn't been made public. They are used exclusively by Exchange, not designed for access by the administrator.

          Dear Sambee,

          I just want to know about system mailboxes because I think it may support better understanding of administering and troubleshooting exchange server like understanding of mail flow supports better troubleshooting skill.

          Anyway, Thanks you for your reply and now I know more than before.
          So system mailboxes are for managing the system and exclusively used by exchange.
          But they are not designed for system administrators and so left it alone.

          Sorry for my English.

          Thanks and Regards,

            Knowledge of the system mailboxes will do nothing to enhance the skills required to manage Exchange. The only time that they become a problem is when they don't exist, and restarting the information store corrects that. Exchange manages them, the administrator just has to leave them alone.
