  • Finding Disk Space Used By Exchange, v2

    Long ago and far away (way back in 2006) I wrote an article for finding the disk space used by Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003, Finding disk space used by Exchange . While this worked through a few Exchange 2007 betas, by Exchange 2007 RTM, the STM file had been removed, and the original script would...

  • Moving a Mailbox Database Path

    In Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010, added functionality in Move-Mailbox (and New-MoveRequest), along with the support of online mailbox moves have reduced the requirement of moving entire databases around very much (it's easier to just move all the mailbox in the mailbox database to a new mailbox...

  • Changing Security Groups to Distribution Groups

    In Exchange Server 2010, you cannot create a new Distribution Group that is not a Universal group. If your Exchange 2010 installation was upgraded from a prior release of Exchange Server, you may find Distribution Groups created in those earlier versions of Exchange that are not Universal. As I've...

  • Generating a report on Distribution Groups and their Membership

    A common request is to get a list of all distribution groups and the members contained in that distribution group. The question came up on a mailing list I frequent today, and my initial response was a PowerShell "one-liner" (actually five lines, but all a single PowerShell statement). The...

  • Exchange Email Address Template Objects in PowerShell

    Exchange has a very rich set of objects which are used and created by the various Exchange cmdlets. Unfortunately, these objects (excepting those used by Exchange Web Services) are poorly documented - and the documentation which is available is often incorrect or misleading. I ran into that problem this...

  • Antivirus Exclusions and Windows

    In December of 2007, I made two posts: File Level Antivirus for Exchange and Information Store Antivirus for Exchange . Since that time, there is no question that with Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 (and the ongoing advancement of various Internet-based threats and malware), that the focus has moved...

  • Exchange 2010 Gotcha - #5

    You may - or may not - need to register Filter Packs after you install them. As a prerequsite for installing Exchange 2010, you must install the Office 2007 Filter Packs . As noted in a recent blog post of mine, Office 2010 Filter Pack for Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 , the Office 2010 Filter Pack...

  • Simplifying Life for Exchange Authors

    Another Exchange MVP, Pat Richard , posted on Facebook yesterday: It would be nice to be able to import a list of all Exchange related PowerShell cmdlets into the Word and Outlook dictionaries. Being the helpful guy that I am, I responded: You can do that in one-line of PowerShell. (That being a famous...

  • Speeding Reboot When Exchange is on a DC/GC

    As I've noted in several previous blog entries (such as here and here ), installing Exchange on a domain controller and/or a global catalog server is not a best practice. However, if you are running SBS (Small Business Server) or EBS (Essential Business Server) or if you only have a single server...
