  • More Exchange Message Tracking

    Originally published November 10, 2006 So, in today's earlier post, I talked about exporting the message tracking logs into XML and then using an XSL sheet to report on that data. What's the problem with that? Well, the ESM Message Tracking Center (MTC) will only export 1,000 entries - maximum...

  • Exchange Message Tracking

    Originally published November 10, 2006 The message tracking log files that Exchange 2003 generates contain very useful information, especially if “Enable subject logging and display” is enabled. See the image below: Note that the log files are kept, by default, in the folder C:\Program Files\ExchSrvr...

  • Displaying Security on Active Directory, Exchange, and Registry Objects

    Originally published July 19, 2006 A common request is “how do I determine what security applies to a given [user | mailbox | registry value]”? The attached script shows you how to do that. None of this is unique to me, I just put it together in a pretty little script. Most of the script can be found...

  • Utility Libraries for Exchange Scripting

    Originally published July 11, 2006 I write many many many Exchange scripts. There are some things that are common in Exchange script - you need to get mailbox sizes, or a list of all the servers in an administrative group, or a list of all Exchange servers, etc. So, I ended up encapsulating all of those...

  • Finding disk space used by Exchange

    Originally published July 11, 2006 I apologize for the long absence, but I've been tied up in Exchange 2007 testing and learning. If you haven't seen it yet - just wait. You'll be very impressed, especially from the administrator's perspective. Especially when used in concert with Outlook...

  • Exchange 200x Catchall Script, Version 2

    Originally published December 28, 2005 (Note November 13, 2007: this works with Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003; but not Exchange 2007 and above.) I've been promising an update to my Exchange Catchall script, since almost the week it was first released. The number one request has always been for...

  • Sending an e-mail to users whose password is about to expire

    Originally published September 13, 2005 (Note November 13, 2007: My second most popular blog post ever. Also due for some cleanup and re-write.) This has come up a number of times, and I actually thought I'd blogged about it in the past -- but I guess not. If you have users that only use POP and...

  • Has adprep been run?

    Originally published September 1, 2005 I had an interesting question asked of me today, and I had to spend some time looking into it, so I thought I'd share the result of that with you. As you know, adprep is used for preparing Active Directory to include Windows Server 2003 domain controllers. It...

  • Using BackOfficeStorage/ExIFS

    Originally published August 25, 2005 In Exchange Server 2003, Microsoft fixed the disaster that was the infamous “M:” drive, and hid it again. But the functionality was not removed -- lots of stuff depends on it. ExIFS provides many capabilities, one of them is that the Exchange stores can be treated...

  • Book enters the final stretch...

    Originally published August 25, 2005 (Note November 13, 2007: O'Reilly decided, as they had the right to, not to publish the book. You'll get benefit of that here - by having it available online.) My technical reviewers and I have been hard at work. They've received the last chapter of the...
