In this article I will explain what Freedocs are all about as well as explain how you can benefit from enabling access to FreeDocs through OWA 2003. In Exchange 2000 (and prior versions) access to FreeDocs via OWA was enabled by default, but as many other things this was changed in Exchange 2003 (as part of Microsoft’s secure by default initiative.)
Okay so you have enabled Forms-based Authentication (FBA) and your users can now logon to Outlook Web Access (OWA) 2003 either by typing domain\\username or [email protected]. But ever since you enabled FBA your users have found it annoying they can’t type username anymore, the other day even the CEO told you his opinion about it, and he definitely wasn’t satisfied so you better come up with a solution.
Get a glimpse into Henrik Walther's recently published book – Securing Exchange Server 2003 & Outlook Web Access! This essential book serves as a comprehensive checklist to all of the security-related configuration consoles in Exchange. Best of all, it's written in a "get to the point" style that clearly explains exactly what you need to know about installing, managing, and troubleshooting. This chapter focuses strictly on OWA security OWA authentication, enabling SSL on OWA, restricting user access, allowing password changes through OWA, and redirecting HTTP to HTTPS.
Being an Exchange Administrator involves several different maintenance tasks, one of them is to regularly check if mail messages flows properly through your X.400 and SMTP Virtual Server queues, which is where the Queue Viewer contained in the Exchange System Manager comes into the picture. In this article I will introduce you to the Queue Viewer improvements found in Exchange 2003, as well as give a brief description of the different queue types available.
In this article I will spend some time covering the much improved Move Mailbox Wizard found in Exchange Server 2003. The new Move Mailbox Wizard has been improved in several areas, its now possible to move up to 4 mailboxes at the same time (called Multithreading), you can decide how corrupted items are handled, mailbox moves can now be scheduled and there are different options for reporting etc.
We would like to welcome Microsoft MVP Henrik Walther to our team of authors as he presents his first article to MSExchange.org readers. As companies seems to start their Exchange 2003 deployments way faster, than was the case with Exchange 2000, I thought it was about time to provide you with information on how you handle an in-place upgrade from Exchange 2000 to 2003.
