After Mailbox move a disconnected Mailbox is left behind in the old Database


Hello

I have setup 2 MBX servers and configured a DAG with them. (Exchange 2010 Ent. SP1)
Got 8 databases up and running and all of them have a copy on the other server.
Evertime when I move a mailbox from one DB to an other, a disconnected mailbox
is left in the old database. Even when both databases are up and runnung on the same host.
So when I move a mailbox in every mailbox once, then I have 7 disconnected mailboxes.

Any ideas about this issue?

We are in the process of migrating from Exchange 2007 SP2 to Exchange 2010.

After we move a mailbox from 2007 to 2010, often times Outlook shows Disconnected.  It seems to reconnect after a while.  Sometimes a couple of hours or more.

But the user can get to their 2010 mailbox just fine through OWA, Mobile Device, a new Outlook profile, etc.

Is there any way to tell how long it will take for Oultook to update?  Also, does anyone know why some mailboxes do not seem to be affected by this?

It seems to be very random and related to some sort of replication/sync job.

Hello,

Hello All,

Recently I added a new mailbox store as the existing mailbox store was getting large.

I have a helpdesk user that has read access inherited to both stores.
This is to enable OOO message if a user forgets to engage (sorry, company policy).

After I moved a bunch mailboxes from the old store to the new store, the helpdesk user could no longer open OWA and administer OOO. They get an HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized.
 
When I look at the permissions on the new store, the helpdesk user has read access. In other words, the permissions on both stores are the same. The helpdesk user accesses OWA for users in the existing store just fine.
 
Thoughts?

Hello all,

I just stood up my first exchange 2010 mailbox server. I also set up a exchange 2010 hub/cas in the same site as it.

I migrated my mailbox from our Exchange 2007 server to it successfully.

The issue is my outlook client still thinks I am connected to our Exchange 2007 CCR cluster. It has me as disconnected and under connection status when I try and reconnect it trys to keep connecting to exchange 2007.

My blackberry server picked up the change right away and I am receiving and able to send on my blackberry just fine. Also I can log into my mailbox through the internal hostname of the cas server.

Any ideas as to why my outlook 2010 client will not connect to the new mailbox server automatically?

Hi -

I use Outlook 2003 with two IMAP email accounts at work. I am loathe
to purge deleted items (both within OL 2003 and on Horde on the server)
because that seems to purge items marked for deletion from ALL folders,
not just the one that I'm currently "In".

I would like to move email messages out of my IMAP inboxes to IMAP
subfolders to keep down the number of messages in the IMAP inboxes
(thinking that that would improve response times).

However, when I move messages from the inboxes to the IMAP subfolders,
a copy of the messages is left behind in the inbox, marked for deletion.

How can I move them from the inbox to a sub folder without just ending
up with duplicate copies in both places, albeit with one set of copies
marked for deletion?

Thanks,
Tim

I just uninstalled my beta Office 2010 64-bit to install Office 2010 Pro Plus 32-bit (64-bit was not available in partner pricing program).  Everything went smoothly and carried over fine.  The one problem I am having is with Rules.  Any rule that executes and moves incoming mail to a specific folder also puts a copy into the trash.  I have tried a number of steps and cant resolve this.  Currently, I have deleted every rule and started from scratch.  Whether I create the rule on an incoming message or do it manually in the rules area, as soon as I activate it the copies are put into the trash.

My 1 current rule is very simple.  If a certain phrase appears in the Subject line, move it to a specific folder.  Nothing else.  A copy is still placed in the trash.  Otherwise, the messages do seem to be moved correctly.

Is there some other setting that could be causing this?

Environment Summary: AD 2003 Native, Exchange 2003 Native, multiple servers
in several cities.

I'm moving all of the mailboxes on one server to another server in the same
organization. All of the mailboxes have moved successfully, but two of them
are still appearing in both the 'old' server and the 'new'; on the old
server, they appear to be orphaned mailboxes, but Exchange will not allow me
to Purge them or Reconnect them to new accounts - in both cases I get an
error that says that the mailboxes are already reconnected to an account, so
I can't really do anything to these mailboxes, and I need to get rid of them
so I can remove the server from the Exchange organization and decommission
it. Does anyone have any thoughts on how I can accomplish this? If I've
left out any details you need, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello,

I have recently removed some site collection databases, and now I'm seeing a
message like the following every 5 minutes for each of the databases that was
removed.

SQL Database 'WSS_Content_2' on SQL Server instance 'DBS1' not found.
Additional error information from SQL Server is included below.

Cannot open database "WSS_Content_2" requested by the login. The login failed.

These databases were created with stsadm using createsiteinnewdb option.
The databases were then deleted by using the Delete Site Collection
functionality provided in Central Administration.

It seems that database records have been left behind in the Config database
and are being referenced by a timer job. I would like to know the correct
(and safest) way to resolve this problem.

Thanks,
Caine

Hi,
I have successfully mounted a database from a crashed server. It was a windows 2008 and exchange 2007 install.
The new server has the same.
I finally got the old edb file mounted as a database in the first storage group. The one made by the install is still there.

I then created a user witch i know is in the old database and told exchange to use the old database during creation of the user.

But when i go to OWA there are no mail or anything in that users innbox.

My question is. How can i get those old emails back?

If you need any more infor please dont hesitate to ask.

Thanks

MS Outlook keeps trying to send a message and yet there is no message in the
out box. I have tried to repair the software using the installation disk,
but it didn't fix the problem. I believe this problem started when I
interupted the "send" message cycle which was the process of sending a
message. This perticular message showed in the "sent" folder, but somehow
it's still cued to be sent and isn't shown in the Out box folder.

I want to place a time and date stamp in the Notes for Contacts in Outlook
2003 and 2007. Is this possible?

When ever i send a mail, Can i add a person's name always in the To or CC
Box?. If it is possible, Please let me know the procedure. I am using outlook

System: SBS2k3, Entourage 2008, Outlook 2003

I make very heavy use of public folders, and they are email enabled. There
are users and scanners that post to the public folders by just sending an
email to the public folders name (i.e. Without the @host.com) However, lots
of the public folder file names have spaces in their name. For example, a
public folder may be named "Doe, John" and may be several folders deep (i.e.
Public Folders/clients (open)/Doe, John)

This naming convention freaks out the email clients (Entourage 08, Outlook
03). They refuse to send emails, claiming they are invalid. Is there a way
to post via email to a public folder with spaces in the name?

A file error has occurred in the CSV translator while initializing a translator to build a field map.

 

The file “C:UsersJnanSmithDocumensJenBusiness Outlook Contacts.csv is locked.  This could be because the disk is locked, the file is read-only, in use by another program, or because you do not have permission to use a network path.

I'm working with Windows 7.  We're trying to set up a contact list that everyone in the office has access to.  We are on a network and have been using Microsoft Outlook a while now, but never knew there was an option for setting up contacts so that other people in the office could see them from their computers.

Any input is appreciated.

Thank you.

Sometime yesterday I discovered that my outgoing emails have a blank box
showing up in the text. When I view my "Sent" box, I can see the box, but it
does not show up on my email until I go into the sent email. I can send
myself an email and also see it. I don't know how it got there or how to get
rid of it. I use MS Outlook.

Whenever I start Outlook 2002, I get the message "There is no disk in the
drive. PLease insert disk." How do I eliminate this annoying message popping
up every time I open Outlook?

We are using Outlook 2003 on Exchange 2003. When addressing an email, I
choose "Contacts" for my personal addresses. What is "All Contacts" in the
address book list? Mine is empty. However, the person I'm sitting next to
has some various email addresses in his "All Contacts" list as well as his
"Contacts" which he maintains regularly. This person states that he has
emailed these people in the "All Contacts" in the past but not recently.
Thanks so much!

When I save a message it saves it in the Inbox, not in the Outbox. How do I
change this please?
