Alias Email accounts for not real people

hi, i have set up my first SBS 2003 server, stuck on exchange, bought the
resource kit , can't find the answer, have setup 4 users, as you create the
user account you configure the user email address, how do i configure a
email address for an Alias person ie sales@mydomain.com or info@mydomain.com
that gets sent to a known user above.

Thanks Graeme

I have three secondary email accounts. For the past month (since Comcast
changed their email processing, but perhaps not because of it), two of these
accounts have not been working. I've discovered that I can send from them,
but not receive. I would appreciate any suggestions.


I was able to set the default email account for emails; but when sending the meeting invitations in the calendar section, the default email account from which the meeting invitation is sent from is a different account and I can not seem to find where to change it.  Please help.  Thanks

Hello All,

As of a couple of days ago when creating a new user account and email address; the email address is not being created. I look at the exchange task and the option to create email account is no longer there, it is the move mailbox, delete mail box and enable messenger options that are there. This is what I see when I create a mailbox, unfortunately there is no email associated with the accounts I have created.

We have gone into the exchange server and purged all the accounts that are no longer being used. Is it possible to run out of email accounts? or what other possibilities are there for email accounts not being created even though exchange indicates that it has, but, they are nowhere to be found.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Phil

Hey guys

I hope someone can help me out with this, and tell me what to do. Well i'm kinda new to the whole exchange thing, and at my company we have one primary email account, but we recently registered a few other domains, and created email account for them.
At our ISP we set it up so that any mail that gets sent to any of our email accounts must be directed to our main account.

But now i need to be able to change specific people's default email adresses to one of the other account, so that they will be able to send from one of them, for example. my defualt is alias@diesel.co.za but i want to change it to alias@petrol.co.za

And i have that in my exchange, but as soon as i send a mail, i immediately get an error, And now i have went and searched online for solutions, and saw that there is a "Send As" thing you can use, but i can't seem to find it.

So does anyone know how to do this or what else i can try to get this working.

Hope someone out there can help
Very urgent

I want to provide email service to my customer, but I don't want to create
real user account and email account for each one. for example, I want to
assign email like xyz123@mycompany.com to my customer, but I don't really
have a email account named "xyz123" setup for it. Still, I want to be able
to look at all the new email in the exchange server and extract those emails
and doing somework accordingly. Does anyone know if Exchange server support
this feature? If not, any other window based email server support it?

Thank you so much for the help..

I'm currently having an issue where when users create an appointment with attendees, and invite a specific user, then sends the appointment , the sender will automatically receive a "Undeliverable", but the undeliverable is for a user that wasn't invited AND is no longer with the company.  Here is the email:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.
Subject: test appointment
Sent: 9/2/2008 8:54 AM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:
Tom Smith on 9/2/2008 8:54 AM
The e-mail account does not exist at the organization this message was sent to. Check the e-mail address, or contact the recipient directly to find out the correct address.

This only occurs with one user and when they are invited to meetings, it does not occur with any other form of email. 
 
I've checked the usual places like forwarding, mailbox rights and the local Outlook setup and I can't seem to find anything that would lead me to believe there is some type of delegation going on. 
 
Any assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thank you.

I have this problem on a Small Business Server 2000. I created a domain and added users to active directory. Everything works fine, except for incoming emails.

I still get the message: e-mail account does not exist at the organisation specified.

does anybody have an solution ?

I created from the host website a new email account for a new employee.
The computer has WINDOWS XP.
I need to set up that new email into that computer wich seems that had another user there before, because outlook is working but it is not sending or receiving emails. I do not see the contacts list either.

Thank you.

When I try to setup an email accout for outlook I am asked to chose the type
of server the email acount will work with. I have An Aol, MSN hotmail,myway,
and myspace, email account. AOL email acount is my primary email source. I
selected IMAP as the type, and entered my user info as Stephen emt23@aol.com
and then logon info as emt23 + my password and selected remember my password
, then selectedlog on using secure password authintication (SPA). from here
im not sure how to continue. What should i enter as my (IMAP) server and
(SMPT) server

Outlook uses wrong email account for reply messages. Will not use default
account or the addressee's account.

I have two Outlook Contacts or Contacts related questions.
We are using Outlook 2003 with two external POP3 emai providers.

1. Is there any way to setup a Contact so that email messages sent to
her/him, will be handled automatically by a pre-determined email account,
not by the current default email account? There is a field named "E-Mail
Account", but it's not editable. Its value shows the current e-mail account
setup as the default, and changes if the default has changed.

2. Another field that seems to not be editable is the "From" field. Its
contents have different formats though, in messages received from different
or sometimes from the same senders. It can show: "John Doe
[mailto:johndoe@domain.com]", "John Doe [johndoe@domain.com]",
"johndoe@domain.com" or just "John Doe". Also, when you start to type
"john" in the "To:" field, all the "John something" you ever sent a message
to, with all their different "From" displays, show up in the history
drop-down list. My question on this subject has two parts.
a. Can the "From" field of a Contact be modified to show a desired format
(for example only "John Doe")?
b. Can the "To:" field history be cleared from time to time so that only
current addressees are shown?

Thank you!

I've never used outlook before - I'm coming from The Bat. I need to change to get more compatibility with my workplace, but I'm not really looking forward to using outlook at all.

Anyway, I can't get my head around how Outlook 2003 expects me to manage my various email accounts. I'm using Vista, BTW.

I want separate data files for my personal email addresses and my work email addresses. However, as I understand it, if I create two profiles (cpanel -> email) each with their own datafile, I'll need to log in and out of outlook to handle the mail?! If so, that method is totally unacceptable because I want to check mail at the separate profiles simultaneously every ten minutes.

So my question would be: can I use ONE profile with one default datafile (ie. have all mail delivered to the default datafile), but then use filtering to move email with certain email addresses over to another, separate datafile?

Also when composing an email, after choosing the correct email account for the 'from' address, a filter would have to be able to move the outgoing mail into the appropriate 'sent' folder in the correct datafile.

I basically want my folders to look like:

WORK
-deleted
-drafts
-inbox
-junk
-outbox
-sent
-search folders

PERSONAL
-deleted
-drafts
-inbox
-junk
-outbox
-sent
-search folders

Each list representing a separate datafile.
Can outlook handle this?

Further, suppose the above is possible. I assume that the calendar, contacts, notes, tasks, journal, etc would would all still just use the default data-file?

Thanks for your advice

EDIT:
OK, I tried the method explained above to use three datafiles, and got something like this:

DEFAULT
-deleted
-drafts
-inbox
-junk
-outbox
-sent
-search folders

PERSONAL
-deleted
-search folders
--address1
--address2

WORK
-deleted
-search folders
--address1
--address2
--address3
--address4

And I think the filters will function ok to move incoming and outgoing mail to the appropriate corresponding folder for each address. I just need to *really* watch which account I have set when composing each email.

It's not exactly as I'd hoped - a bit clunky and contrived. Also the 'search folders' are not very good; Bat's 'virtual folders' are far superior.

I have another question, for which I'll start another post.

I recently changed my email account password. I changed it in outlook. It
works on my first account, but not for my second account. Just to check it
out, I put the same settings into microsoft outlook on my desktop, and it
works fine there, but not on my laptop. It continually prompts me to re-enter
my username and password. Everytime I enter it, the box reappears. If I
cancel, the test email fails because of "invalid username & password." Do I
have a setting messed up or is it my outlook?

I have just installed Outlook 2002, as part of Office XP, into my new laptop
that has Windows Vista. I was using the trial version of Office 2007, but I
uninstalled it when I did not buy it. Outlook was working fine. Also,
Outlook 2002 was working fine on my other computer with Windows XP. Every
time I run Outlook now, and then do a Send/Receive, it asks for passwords
for my two email accounts. Then when I check my email accounts under Tools,
Email Accounts, then View or change existing email accounts, then change
each email account, in the section for logon information, there is a box for
password, with a check box for remember password. This box remains checked,
and the password should remain there, but now it is being cleared, for some
unknown reason.

I would like to know how to fix this as it is a nuisance to have to reenter
my password each time I run Outlook.

Thanks

Hi, I'm hoping you can assist me. I have been successfully able to develop a
template to send upon receipt of emails to my email account. However, there
is an email account that has been established for a specific project that is
not my default email account. There are several people who can access this
email account. We want to be able to set up a rule/template for this email
account to automatically send a message upon receipt.

Is this possible? Does the rule have to be created and applied by the
administrator? I would like to avoid that if possible. Any suggestions
would be so appreciated. Please let me know of any additional information
you might need.

Thank you in advance for any help!

I'm trying to sort a problem with Exchange 2003... Exchange was refusing to
send emails to two people on a certain company. I figured out that someone
had setup accounts for these two people (by mistake) on our exchange server,
and our test emails were being delivered to these mailboxes on our own
server, rather than being sent to our hosting provider's SMTP server.

I've deleted these two mailboxes, though we're now getting "The e-mail
account does not exist at the organization this message was sent to. Check
the e-mail address, or contact the recipient directly to find out the
correct address." (The organisation it gives is us - a different domain name
from the two people we're trying to email.)

I suspect that Exchange still thinks these two people are on our server. Any
idea how I can stop Exchange thinking these two people are on our server?

Thank you!


The user exists in Active Directory administrative center and can log on fine, but I'm unable to create an email account for them. When I check, their name isn't listed under existing email accounts (and they're unable to login to our OWA but able to login to their computer fine), so when I try to create a new email account for them I get the following:

Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:00:00

Name Removed
Failed

Error:
The value "namehere@fp.local" of property "UserPrincipalName" is used by another recipient object "fp.local/Company Users/name herel". Please specify a unique value.

Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
New-Mailbox -Name 'name herel' -Alias 'namehere' -UserPrincipalName 'nameherel@fp.local' -SamAccountName 'alias' -FirstName 'name' -Initials '' -LastName 'name' -Password 'System.Security.SecureString' -ResetPasswordOnNextLogon $false

Elapsed Time: 00:00:00H

However even through the shell I can't find this mailbox for deletion, and it's not in the disconnect list.

Second, once I get it in the disconnect list, any way to speed up the normal 30 day deletion process?


Hello I would begin with I am not very IT tech minded.  Have an old slow home pc and have just purchased a new laptop which I want to use to be able to check all the emails that come in.  The home pc has two email addresses configured to it.  I have only been able to set up one email account on my laptop for Outlook 7.  Please can someone tell me how to add another one.  I have tried contacting microsoft who won't help me as I only have  a trial package.

Many thanks

Hi,

  Anyone know if it is possible to create an email account in MS Exchange 2000/2003 that will not show up in the Global Address List.  I need to make some anonymous email accounts for certain users that do not want there email address to show in the Global Address List in MS outlook.

Thanks

Hello,

I am using both internal mail and external mail. I would like to configure my Microsoft Outlook such that whenever I type the sender's email(whether or not it is internal or external)and click send button, it will automatically decide which mail account to use to send out. Another question is that, how do I set my Exchange server to direct certain external mail to certain users only.

Thank you.

Regards,
tkt
