How to change all Exchange external URLs without adversely affecting external users?

We have an Exchange 2010 SP2 system consisting of a single Mailbox/Hub/CAS server and a single Edge server. The MHC server is exposed to Internet users via a TMG 2010 reverse proxy. All Exchange web services use a public FQDN in an old DNS domain that we are replacing with a new one; let’s call the current public FQDN of the server webmail.olddomain.com and the new one webmail.newdomain.com. We already bought a new certificate for […]

Outlook Anywhere on Exchange ’03 does not work on Outlook ’03 and ’10, but works on Outlook ’07?

To start, we have a non-best-practices Exchange setup. Rather than a front-end RPC proxy server and a back-end mailbox server, we have a single server that is a DC/GC/Exchange. Setting up RPC-over-HTTP only appears to work on Outlook 2007 clients, which is wierd because it’s an Exchange 2003 server (or perhaps I set up that Outlook installation when it was connected to the domain and forgot that I did, so that’s why it’s working). The […]

Proper syntax for generating an SSL certificate CSR to protect an Exchange 2007 server

I need help generating a CSR for a Subject Alternative Name (SAN) SSL certificate to protect a new Exchange 2007 server. My main requirements are that Outlook Anywhere and OWA must work without any errors or warnings. It would be nice if the Outlook Anywhere Autodiscover service worked for Outlook 2007 clients as well. I know there are many examples of the proper syntax for generating the CSR, but most examples assume that your Windows […]

Prevent second IP on multihomed server from registering in AD-enabled DNS

I have a Windows 2008 Standard server running Exchange 2010 that is hosting OWA. Internal Outlook 2007 clients connect to the primary IP via SSL, which is bound in IIS using the self-signed certificate Exchange creates on its own as exchange.mycompany.local. In order to publish OWA to the outside world, I have a SonicWall firewall configured to forward HTTPS inquiries to a second IP address via SSL, also bound in IIS, but using a commercial […]

Does Exchange 2003 have some limit on storing sent items on server?

Problem: I’ve Exchange 2003 on SBS 2003. I’ve a user which uses outlook at work, outlook at home (through HTTPS) and OWA occasionally from different places. Unfortunately some of the emails sent via outlook at home are not visible as sent (not appearing), and some are. Question: Is Exchange having some limit that lets say emails bigger then 5mb (or some other criteria) when sent are only stored locally in outlook but are not placed […]

Exchange 2003 Outlook Anywhere – Changed certificate, not working

I have a single Exchange 2003 installation which for the past 2 years has been set up for Outlook Anywhere access by means of a self-signed certificate. Just this past week I updated that certificate to a Go Daddy wildcard certificate to allow for use of our web services over https. I’ve updated the web listener on our ISA 2006 firewall and I can successfully use our services over https. However, my Outlook Anywhere access […]

Outlook Anywhere asking for password

I’ve tried to set up outlook anywhere using Exchange 2010 and it works well except when Outlook is first opened, the user is asked to enter their windows login password. Once it has been entered everything is fine but I need to get rid of this annoyance. I’ve tested the settings on www.testexchangeconnectivity.com and everything is reported as ok. Does anyone know how I can fix this? I managed to get this working by using […]

Outlook doesn’t download folders from Exchange mailbox

Update — Clean Install, brand new PC, Windows 7, Outlook 2010 Strangeness. I am getting basically the inverse, now: all folders, and the messages within them, have downloaded. However, the messages in the Inbox did not! A new, test message I sent downloaded correctly and appears in my Inbox, but none of the existing messages in the Inbox did. (Some are read, some are unread.) I have logged on using OWA on this new PC […]

Exchange 2010 Outlook Anywhere (RPC over HTTP) not working (The EXCH provider section is missing from the Autodiscover response.)

A bit of backstory… network exploded, rebuilt. This AD has survived people not knowing what they are doing, Exchange 2007 (installed and removed a few times), Exchange 2010 (current in use and re-did from a crash once). My Outlook Anywhere (RPC over HTTP) is not working, the XML response is below and as far as I can tell it’s providing all the right information yet testexchangeconnectivity.com still says “The EXCH provider section is missing from […]

Using Outlook Anywhere on LAN – Routing Problem

Does it work to use Outlook Anywhere on the local LAN without changing any settings? I don’t have a problem making Outlook Anywhere work when the computer is off the LAN. However, when the computer is on the LAN I can’t get it to accept the settings. Is it possible that I need to reconfigure something in our SonicWall firewall/router? The domains used, autodiscover.ourdomainname.com and remote.ourdomainname.com point to one of our WAN addresses. I’m guessing […]
