    Ermmm. Who did I insult? Was only having a light hearted chat and was meaning no offence in anyway. Sure this was not professional and I appoligise for breaking rule number 7.

    When it comes to thread hijacking, it says:

    ‘Please do not hijack other peoples’ threads asking a similar but not quite identical question!’

    Ok fair enough but the way the conversation went, it was nothing to do with the question being asked in the thread at all and so was off topic which again I appoligise for.

    TBH a warning would have sufficied. Was it proffesional off you to not even give me that?

    Ah well Lazareth, we have been naughty boys and we deserve to be punished.
    I feel like a 39 year old boy back at school.

    There was a bug in the way mail to Distributions Lists was counted and it made the numbers excessive. I can’t remember if it was ever fixed – it was supposed to have been, but maybe it wasn’t!

    Hmm, I know for sure that this user mails to single addresses most of the time.

    teiger;109067 wrote:
    Thanks for posting back with your solution – though I am not sure how it refers to your case. Are you saying that the mailbox that didn’t work, didn’t have an SMTP address?

    Nope, obviously I was not clear about this, let’s try to explain.
    This server hosts mail for domain1, domain2 and domain3.
    Domain1 is my domain and is the primary domain in the default recipient policy, as set by the wizzard, domain2 and domain3 are domains of customers that only need webmail, not even a website, just mail.
    Users of domain2 had smtp addresses in domain2 only.
    Users of domain3 had smtp addresses in domain3 only.
    In this case, I had the problem, because everybody needs an address in the domain which is the primary in the default recipient policy.

    I gave everybody, apart from their existing addresses, an SMTP address in domain1 and domain1 is the primary address in the recipient policy, and this way it works.

    Hope it’s clear now ?

    I am not sure why it is showing so low for a heavy user, but to answer the non matching totals you need to think of recipients as people not email. So 1 email could go to 2 recipients. Or 1 email could go to 20 recipients, it is still only 1 outgoing email from that account.

    Very good point, never would have thought of that.
    Still wondering about the amount of outgoing mails.
    Thanks.

    I have just created 2 new accounts with mailbox and they do not have this problem, they can both access both mailboxes.
    I only have this problem with already existing mailboxes which a new user needs access to.

    Hey guys. I’ve got a Acer server with a SATA Raid setup which works fine but ive wanted to install another SATA HDD thats not on the raid.

    I’ve installed the new SATA HDD with good cables installed on the server but the OS does not recogonize the drive, not even in Disk Management.

    Also the networking drops out when the new drive is plugged in and when i unplug it the networking works again?? Wierd i thought.

    The main Raid is setup on a seperate controller but the onboard controller in still enabled. I’ve tryed pluging it in every slot available on card and board but still nothing.

    Help!! Dave.

    Does the BIOS detect the harddisk ?
    Have you installed the drivers for the SATA controller ?

    Yes the remote firewall needs 4125 open (next to the SBS) but nothing else uses that port and it is only opened dynamically if you read the link.

    I assume that there will be traffic from my PC that is supposed to go through the proxy to my SBS server over port 4125.
    Am I wrong ?
    Why else do I have to open that port ?

    Yes that works perfectly, but works over port 4125.
    Would that not be blocked by most proxies ?
    And what protocol travels over port 4125 ?

    Can someone explain that what a domain administrator or anyone with domain administrator rights can access on a client workstation after logging in locally or managing this computer remotely using Active Directory Users and Computes? Let’s put it in this way, what a domain administrator can or cannot do on a client computer?
    Can we stop someone to access the local C: when they login to a domain computer belong to some other domain user?
    Thanks,

    Not realy, like JeremyW said.
    An Admin can override things.
    But, one thing you can do, is set EFS to files and folders you want to keep to yourself.
    An Admin can only open these if he is the recovery agent and most Admins are not.

    PaulH;107974 wrote:
    You can change the port RDP is listening on, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306759 and you can change the port the client uses for RDP (which obviously must also change) by adding colon (:) port number at the end of the IP address that you are running mstsc on.

    However, if the server is already listening on 443 for other things, such as OWA, you will have troubles with two services listening on the same port, so I think you should open up a new, different port on your customer’s router to handle RDP traffic.

    Altrernatively, are you able to join their VPN and then RDP to a local IP address? This may be a better option and sidesteps the issue.

    I realise the above is not the perfect answer, but I hope it helps somewhat.

    Thanks, but this won’t help.

    They do protocol filtering as well, so even if I change the port, that won’t change a bit.
    VPN’s are not going through the proxy, bummer.
    If there would be a way to let it go through SSL, they would not see the RDP protocol.

    Thanks anyway.

    Are you using a NAT or Host Only model in VMWare ?
    If they exist, then you have a DHCP server in VMWare.
    Better disable those.

    1 once tried it, because a client of mine wanted that, and it worked, but that was before installing Exchange.

    Hi All –

    We have several Windows 2003 DCs running in a Windows 2003 Native Mode environment. We also have a Window 2003 DC running as a Global Catalog server. Does anyone know how to prevent the Global Catalog server from registering the “(Parent As Parent Folder) Host A” record on the internal DNS? Whenever it does that, the clients will consider it as one of the DNS servers, and this cause problem. When I run the Nltest.exe command, this server shows up in the DNS server list:
    C:Documents and Settings>nltest /DNSGETDC:abcd.com
    List of DCs in pseudo-random order taking into account SRV priorities and weights:

    But why are you creating a separate web-site with a host header? Use the main server site as http:///exchange and you will be automatically redirected to https:///exchange – OOB.

    Dear Teiger, I realy do appreciate your help, don’t get me wrong, but please read what I typed.

    I quote myself :
    But, just in case somebody connects to http://webmail.mydomain.com, forgetting the s in https, I have an extra virtual directory in IIS with a host header record webmail.mydomain.com, which reconnects to https://webmail.mydomain.com/exchange.
    The result is, i somebody visits http://webmail.mydomain.com, they are redirected to the proper https site.

    That is why I created that website.

    teiger;107378 wrote:
    It is when you deviate from the standard you create problems. You also can’t have 2 SSL sites on the one IP address, even with host headers.

    I don’t use 2 SSL sites, it can be done in IIS with a wild certificate though, but I am not trying that.
    The second website is http over port 80, read my text again please.

    One you have created a separate website with hostheader record webmail.domain.com for only port 80, it stays there and it blocks PDA syncs, even after running the wizzards again.
