How does faxing work with Exchange unified messaging?
I had this question from a university in the rocky mountain range. With Exchange Server 2007 unified messaging, the UM server can directly detect a fax tone using the T.38 FOIP (Fax Over IP) standard and route inbound faxes to an extension. It does not provide the ability to send faxes outbound...

How can I route out certain outbound domains to specific SMTP gateways?
I had a Rocky Mountain university ask how they could route specific internally defined SMTP domains that are sending out of the Hub Transport to an Encryption server. To accomplish this, a custom Transport Agent is required. A transport agent is akin to the event sinks of Exchange 2003 where you...

I want to deploy Exchange Server 2007 on Hyper-V. What works?
I found this useful TechNote on support boundaries for Exchange 2007 running on Hyper-V: Terms You Should Know: Hypervisor — a layer of software sitting just the hardware and beneath one or more operating systems Root —the physical machine that runs the hardware virtualization...

Where should I place my Exchange UM server?
This is a common question I get since your PBX may not be in the same place as your mailbox servers. Where do I put the Exchange UM components if I have a PBX in one location and an Exchange mailbox in another? The typical rule of thumb to follow is: Place your SIP gateways close to your...

We trust each other don't we part II: Can I share Free/Busy information between two Exchange 2007 organizations?
Here is some additional information to supplement Greg's post. I had the same question this week from a Pacific northwest university so this must be Free/Busy week. Here are the prerequisites required for this to work: 1. Representation of the target user contact objects in the source Exchange...

Bricks layer backups
I hate to even say it. Customers still ask for it but alot of implementations are still done via MAPI calls to individual mailboxes. This can give you a very large backup window. With Exchange 2003 and 2007 you can use the Recovery Storage Group. In Exchange 2007 this can be done via shell: Restore...

How can I speed up the Exchange Management Shell launch?
Have you noticed it takes quite a long time to open up the Exchange command shell? I timed it and it takes anywhere from 20 to 30 seconds to launch. I found a way to knock this down to 2-3 seconds. This script updates the GAC with some of the Exchange assemblies and makes Command Shell respond well....

This is an older topic but one that I’ve run across recently with education customers. I’m planning to migrate from Novell to Microsoft and I have GroupWise. What are my options? Well, we deprecated our migration tools when we launched Exchange 2007. So we don’t have a tool to go directly from GroupWise...

Customer asks "How can I ensure that messages in an archive are tamper-proof?"
I believe the real question is how can I prevent my organizations messages from being tampered. The answer is PKI. Public Key Infrastructure. In Exchange 2007 PKI is used for a number of things from self-signing on install to PKI for TLS for the Edge Transport Server. PKI has been traditionally used...

Addendum to previous post: When an Outside Caller leaves a voicemail, I get ‘A message from an unrecognized number’ in Outlook Voice Access
In my previous post around this, I mentioned there is an Exchange 2007 Rollup3 needed to resolve this problem but I need to be a bit more clear on that suggestion. The Rollup3 only resolves this behavior when the recipient of the voicemail is in one dial plan and the caller, who is also UM enabled, resides...
