Exchange 2007 reaches end of life on April 11. The importance of this version cannot be overstated, especially in terms of its contribution to Exchange Online and Office 365. But it is time to let go and move to a more modern platform.
We’ve recently had to configure a couple of client’s SBS2008 Exchange 2007 servers to act as SMTP relays for remote users. Why not just use OWA or Outlook Anywhere? It mostly seems to be Mac users, in particular those with “MobileMe”, which insists on IMAP and SMTP to communicate with the mail server. Adding authenticated SMTP in Exchange 2003 was a pretty simple process, but the procedure in 2007 is not so obvious – read on to find out how to do that, and enable anonymous relaying too.
Recipient filtering can be a handy way to quickly locate a user or a mailbox, but it can also be a great way to perform an action on a subgroup. In this article, Brien Posey shows how to create simple and compound recipient filters and perform actions on the filter results through the Exchange Management Shell.
Setting up a “catchall” mailbox in Exchange 2003 wasn’t easy and now you will find the method has changed completely in Exchange 2007. In this article SBS guru Tom Finnis shows you how to install a transport agent that will redirect all emails for unresolved recipients to one mailbox instead of rejecting them.
