Phantom Exchange group


Hi All,

Two issues.

1/ I'm trying to setup Exchange so that members of the Directors group can send e-mail as 'directors' rather than from their individual mail accounts.

2/ The exchange admin has created a group called directors, but it seems a 'phantom group' has also been created. I need to get rid of the phantom group.

Bit more background

The directors requested that the group Directors be given "Send As" rights to the directors@xxx.com email address we changed the email address on the 'Directors' group to seniormanagement@xxx.com and renamed the group to 'SeniorManagement'. We then created a new Public Folder called 'Directors' with the email address directors@xxx.com.   'Send As' rights were then granted to the 'Senior Management' group and this has proven to work without any issues. Also, the 'Directors' public folder was set so that any email sent to directors@xxx.com is then forwarded to the 'Senior Management' group.   The only people who seem to be experiencing a problem with sending email to directors@xxx.com are the directors and this is possibly due to their cached Outlook address list. From what I can tell the problem only occurs when one of the directors sends an email to the cached Directors (DIRECTORSF64BE372....) entry as emails sent any other way work perfectly.

Hi. Trying to find out if it's possible to set up an auto reply for an Exchange group, and if so, how. Thanks.




All,

I'm looking for a tool that I can pick a top level exchange group and it
will visio out all the nested groups and members.

Is there a version of Visio that I need or any other programs that may do
this for me.

thanks,

Fasteddie




Exchange group calendar is a tool by opusflow that talks to your exchange server just like outlook does.
It can help you with a number of things:

# Collates everyone’s calendar items into one or more public group calendars.
# Users don’t have to do anything. No software to install for the users.
# Selective filtering per group calendar to display only items that matter or hide private/confidential items.
# Create different group calendars for absence, projects and groups of resources (rooms, cars,..) that display only relevant calendar items.
# Admin users (managers) can push items to users directly from the group calendar overview and users can not change or remove those.
# Admin users (managers) can modify items in the groupcalendar and the change will replicate back to the user who has the item in the personal calendar.
# Team members can push team items to the personal calendar of everyone in their team so these will also display on mobile calendar devices.
# Users can create new items for other users from their personal calendar or pda/phone calendar.
# Define one mandatory, company wide category list and category color schema so everyone uses the same colors and categories.
# Group Calendars are accessible from Outlook web access. (web browser)
# Runs on any computer or server that can connect to the (hosted/local) Exchange server. No need to install on the exchange server.
# EGC Software management can be done from any computer that can connect to the machine that runs the EGC software.
# Uses the same methods to talk to Exchange as Outlook, nothing needed on the server. Low server load even with high user counts.
# No left-overs when uninstalled. Registry is not used.
# Centrally schedule appointments and events for team members
# End the 'delegate permissions' problems. No permissions settings by users




Good day,

I am looking for a solution that will allow me to "post" my upper management schedules for all to see (2 or 3 max).  The viewing could be within the Public folder on my 2003 exchange server, or perhaps on my Windows Sharepoint Service Intranet site.  I have looked at a couple of solutions but nothing has jumped out at me.  I would have thought that after investing in an Exchange server and related systems (OWA, SMTP Gateway, etc) that this would be easier, and not cost me a fortune...Has anyone has success with any Group Calendar applications, or have a solution that utilizes just the tools mentioned above?

TIA

We just installed our Exchange 2003 server into our 55 Site.

Though 55 I see 9 Sites. One of those sites only has an exchange 2000
server.

When I look at the administrative groups in 2003, I only see 8
administrative groups. I looked for the missing administrative groups in
adsi edit and it looks like a text file not a folder like the rest of the
administrative groups.

Has anyone seen this? Or have a way to fix this?

Thanks,jb




Dear All,

How i can give access to someone has hotmail email account to send email to specific group in exchange server 2007.

best regards




Hello Folks...

We are designing a DR site and will use an Exchange 2007 single node SCC configuration with SCR utilized on the node.  I have everything worked out for the most part but on our production 2 node SCC I use Sophos Puremessage which creates it's own resources in the Exchange Cluster Group. 

Per Microsofts article:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb738150.aspx

It states that prior to failing back to the primary site....

"On the node that currently owns the resource group containing the clustered mailbox server, an administrator must clear the clustered mailbox server and its resources from the failover cluster. To do this, the administrator first removes any non-Exchange resources from the cluster group containing the clustered mailbox server. Then, the administrator runs the following command on NODEA: setup.com /clearlocalcms /cmsname:xxxxxxx
 
"NON-EXCHANGE Resources” would be the resources installed by Puremessage during initial installation….

I am basically asking how do these resources get recreated if the /clearlocalcms wipes the Exchange Cluster group configuration out?  Is it recreated from local disk, active directory, etc?

I'm sure other people have run into this before....I'm hoping.




**I have asked this question other places and have not received an
answer. I am including my original question and several responses.
Thanks all for your help.**

We are using Exchange Server 2003 with clients using Outlook 2003.
Some of these clients have pop3 accounts that they access from their
outlook client. Due to this, their preferred method of organization
is to "Group By" the "E-mail Account" field. This is usually fine;
the exchange mail is listed under the title "E-mail account: Microsoft
Exchange Server" and the pop3 mail is listed under the title "E-mail
account: Verizon Email". However, since yesterday, the "E-mail
account: Microsoft Exchange Server" is now listed twice and new
exchange mail is delivered to either grouping - I cannot find a rhyme
or reason as to how it decides which to send it to. This mainly
presents a problem when sorting mail and an inconvenience because you
have to scroll all the way down the Outlook screen to get to new
mail. This is not limited to users with pop3 accounts, it is also
happening to my Outlook (Exchange mail only), but there is typically
no need for mail to be sorted by E-mail Account.

Anyone have an idea why this may have happened? I dont think anything
has changed to cause the problem by me. However, yesterday was when I
installed Microsoft's Patch Tuesday updates and restarted the Exchange
server. The reason I do not think this is related is mail is showing
up in the "new" exchange group of messages from both before and after
the upgrade/reboot and it is not consistent. Please help.

************************************************************ *************************

I will add that the outlook client has a couple updates as well that
were installed:

Security Update for Outlook 2003 (KB924085)
Update for Outlook 2003 Junk Email Filter (KB925534)

This may be why the mail was showing up in the different "groups"
before and after the Exchange server was updated/rebooted.

************************************************************ *************************
This is still a problem - can anyone else reproduce it or is it just
my company? Here is how to try it if you use outlook with an exchange
server:

In the Inbox, add the 'Email Account' field from the field chooser.
Now right click the 'Email Account' heading and select 'Group by this
field'. Do your emails get grouped by multiple (identical) exchange
accounts?

************************************************************ *************************
>From a helper:

I tried this and didn't see any duplication of the account. Are you
by any chance using Outlook 2003 in cached mode? I'm wondering if you
are getting two different accounts displayed because one is the local
cached copy and one is the server copy of your mailbox. Why that
would happen, I don't know and haven't been able to find any solution
yet. You could temporarily turn off cached mode and see if it changes
anything.

************************************************************ *************************

Yes we are using outlook in cached mode. I'll try to turn it off to
see what happens and will post the results. Thanks.

************************************************************ *************************

I turned off cached mode and restarted Outlook, but I am still
receiving mail into both "Accounts". Thanks.

************************************************************ *************************
>From a helper:

When you go into the Outlook profile, do you see Microsoft Exchange
listed two times? If so, try removing both of them and then adding it
back just once. If not, then I would recommend deleting the profile
completely and re-creating it from scratch. Be sure to use a new
profile name, too, because the registry will retain some settings from
the old profile if you use the same name. And for now I would leave
cached mode turned off, too.

This is assuming, as I am, that at this point all of the mail is
actually being delivered to one mailbox, which is on the server, and
that it is just showing up twice in Outlook.

************************************************************ *************************

I deleted/recreated (with a new name) the Outlook profile and
recreated the mail account however the problem still exists. Caching
is still off as well.

You are correct that mail is delivered to only one exchange mail
account. However, an individual email sent to me is not showing up
twice in Outlook, it is showing up as being sent to my "Microsoft
Exchange Server" email account, which is listed twice when the mailbox
is "grouped by" the "E-mail Account" column (field/heading). I know
it is a bit confusing, but stay with me.

If I display the "E-mail Account" column from the "Field Chooser"
feature it will display the email account my incoming email is sent
to. If I then right click on the "E-mail Account" heading and choose
"Group By This Field" and finally collapse all of the groups, my inbox
will look similar to this:

+ E-mail Account: Microsoft Exchange Server (1095 items)

+ E-mail Account: Microsoft Exchange Server (73 items)

and my incoming mail (sent to the same email addy) will be sorted/
filtered into either one of the 'accounts' listed above.

This causes a big problem when users have pop accounts set up in their
Outlook profile, because grouping by "E-mail Account" is a good thing
to do in this circumstance. However, new emails destined for the
exchange account show up in either (from above) with no rhyme or
reason.

Thanks for your help and I hope this clears up my side of things.

************************************************************ *************************
>From helper:

Thanks - it all becomes blindingly clear now ;-) It's pretty strange,
but I have seen other strange behavior in Outlook 2003 when using the
"show in groups" feature. I have a problem on my WS when I group by
categories where it expands all of my groups by default instead of
showing them in the same state (expanded or not) that it was in when I
last viewed the folder. MS support could not figure out why or give
me an explanation or resolution. I uninstalled and reinstalled O2K3
completely and it was fixed for a while but came back again...Anyway,
that's my story not yours. One question I thought of - have you
installed the latest SP for O2K3 - SP2? I did find an article on some
behavior that was somewhat different from yours but sounded similar,
and it said to install SP2 to fix it. Here's the article if you're
interested:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/843489/en-us

************************************************************ *************************

Yes SP2 is installed, actually everything is patched and up to date.
Did I mention that this is happening to several people here (everyone
that I have checked at least)? That leads me to believe it is a
server issue or a patch that was installed on everyone's machine. Any
thoughts?

************************************************************ *************************
>From helper:

I think I might have just had an inspiration. I decided to test your
exact steps again, and this time I saw the same behavior as you. It
appears to me that it is happening on emails that are addressed to
multiple internal addressees. IOW, I got two groups as well, and the
emails in the second group (there were only two) were both addressed
to multiple internal addresses. Check this out and see if you are
seeing the same thing.

************************************************************ *************************

Sorry, but I am glad to see you are having the same "problem" as me.
However, I have 1300 messages in my inbox and 1100 of them are in the
first "microsoft exchange server" and the rest in the second one. The
only commonality I can find is that in the group of 200, the sender of
the email was an internal user. It does not look like the recipient
matters as there are both internal and external addresses listed as
recipients. In the group of 1100, the sender could be either internal
or external and again the recipient did not matter.

I checked this theory on another account that had a lot of emails in
is inbox folder and it held up. I wanted to check some other users
but most (like you) keep their inbox fairly clean.

Can you check yours again and let me know if my 'theory' holds for
your situation?

Thanks for your continued help.

************************************************************ *************************

Sorry for the long post, but I hope it is helpful.




Hello,

I created a new Group (Global, Distribution List) on our Exchange 2003
server and it does not show up in the Outlook 2007 Global address list. It
does show up in the Outlook 2007 client when I select "All Groups". I have
made sure the Hide From Address book option is not checked.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks in advance,

Sean





Hi guys,

We are in the process of migrating Exchange from 2003 to 2010, and as many people that posted here, we also have problems with the OOF assistant. I've read nearly through all of these posts, and none of them was helpful in our situation. Currently the environment is mixed Exchange 2003/2010, with Exchange 2003 (lowick, which also was DC on Windows 2003 server) halfway decommissioned. Exchange 2010 (xray) has CAS, HUB transport and mailbox role installed on it, host is Windows Server 2008 R2. Travy is the new DC - Windows Server 2008. Rigic is a phantom exchange 2010 server that was not decommissioned properly before removing from exchange organization. OOF can be accessed through OWA, but cannot be accessed internaly with error

“Your Out of Office settings cannot be displayed, because the server is currently unavailable. Try again later.”

I assume that the autodiscover virtual directory fields for InternalURL and ExternalURL are not supposed to be blank; In the Exchange certificate  the CertificateDomains field should contain autodiscover and OWA url's; am I right?

Because this Exchange server resides in remote site with no local IT support, I cannot just try stabbing in the dark, any changes I make have to be successful in the first try. 

Please advise me what is the smartest thing to do here. Thanks in advance. 




I am working with a client company that has deleted their "First Administrative Group" following proper procedures. Unfortuantely there are now two problems:

1. The first administrative group Free / Busy folder is still there. It seems that there are many users that are posting their Free / Busy to this folder. This is causing problems viewing Free / Busy etc as you would expect.

2. Many accounts still show "First Administrative Group" as their administrative group on the Advanced tab in AD.

Has anyone ever seen this before?




i have installed exchange and uninstalled and then installed exchange on the same active directory.

now when i lunch the exchange manager its giving the old exchange name and sayiong that days to exair. and when i click the practice analyzer and try to connect to the AD it shows the old exchange as well under the exchange group.

how can i remove that from AD? i am using active directory 2008 and exchange 2007 both enterprice.




I am IT-CRM analyst and maintain a piece of software called eGain that pulls messages from a POP3 account on an Exchange server. What we need to do are insert strings into the subject line that are not visible
to the user. We use these strings within the eGain system for routing to appropriate agents.Unfortunately, the prior owners of the Exchange box have transitioned the server to our production support group. Even more, they are unwilling to explain to the new owners how to attach "invisible" strings
to the subject lines.Currently, certain accounts have what appear to be hex numbers like 0x955ACB61 in the subject line. These items are then used to route the messages within our eGain system based on the subject line containing
that string.My question is: How and where in Microsoft Exchange does one insert the string? Please be very specific and step by step, as the folks in our exchange group do not know at all how to do this. Thanks,Sam




We have an exchange group called everyone with couple hundred members in it. I would like to be able to implement the feature so that when someone sends email to everyone, a popup message appears and the sender must click okay on the box before sending email.

Thanks for your help!

We have a "AllStaff" type of group and I want to restrict who can send to it.

I have been unable to find this, if it is able in 2007. Any clues??

Thanks

I have been working with Exchange Server 2007 (Ok so Fighting with it is more like it.) I have the following setup:

1. Edge Transport Server (USS Farragut)
2. Hub Transport, CAS, OWA Server - (USSCrimsontide)
3. Mailbox Server 01 - (USSEnterprise)
4. Mailbox Server 02 - (USSNimitz)
This is my exchange group, and I am attempting to use NeverFail (http://www.neverfailgroup.com) for Failover protection between Nimitz and Enterprise.

All of these Servers are Using Windows 2003 X64 Enterprise, and I am working with Exchange Server 2007 Enterprise.

I also have 2 Domain Controllers (USSCarlvinson and USSdallas)

I have been having problems with one of my Mailboxes when I try to set up exchange that said "Exchange is in an unstable state - only Disaster Recovery Mode is available" One of the Technet forums I was reading said "Hey Delete this Active Directory Schema Entry and it will fix it" So I did it in my testing environment, and it worked fine. When I went to do it in the Production Envrionment Active Directory became less than thrilled with this action saying it couldnt find all of my servers (i.e. HubTransport) So I figured "Hey, I will just un-install and re-install Exchange on the HubTransport server, well now it says "Exchange 2007 Setup failed: Could not find server usscrimsontide.domain.com"  So I am trying to think of how to get this fixed without 1. Having to format or 2. Having to restore from the System State backup I took (I was removing bunk objects from the Schema all weekend and dont want to have to re-do it) Any advice would be greatly appreciated.




Hello all, we currently have exchanged installed on a small server that shares our domain controller, dns, dhcp, etc. I am looking in the comming months to purchase a new server and migrate exchange away from the domain controller. I was wondering on the best practice to do this.

Do we just simply install the new server and add a new the server to the existing exchange group then move the mailboxes to the new server? After that is done can we then just change the DNS pointer for smtp delivery and turn down the exchange services on the odomain contoller (old exchange server)? Am I missing something?? is their more to this?

A second related question is that my new server will most definatly be a 64-bit server, I know the exchange 2003 is not 64 but can I run it on a 64-bit os or do I need to install a 32 variant of the OS on this new server?

Our current platform is Windows 2003 and Exhchange 2003.

Cheers,

Derek




Hi, I uninstalled exchange 2003 using the add/remove programs. Then a reboot
and a few hours to replicate.

Then ran setup.exe /removeorg. I noticed that there was still objects
leftover from exchange 2003 in AD, such as:
Exchange Groups,Exchange OU
distribution groups and disabled users.

What exactly does the removeorg remove other that exchange 2003
organization?

How do I clean the rest of the mess up?

thx jason
