In my last column I introduced Password Minder, the tool I use to manage all of my passwords. It generates a long, random password for each site I visit, and makes it possible for me to use the most complex passwords possible, without ever having to see the actual password material or type it in manually. If you didn't have a chance to read that column, you should go do that now, otherwise this column won't make much sense! This time, I'll take you on a tour of the guts of how Password Minder im...

Many people in the Microsoft Exchange 2000 newsgroups seem to want to know how to host multiple SMTP Domains on their single Exchange 2000 server, Microsoft has some good Knowledgebase articles about the steps required, so I thought I would take the time to make the documents a little clearer and offer some additional insight on how the process works. Lets start by looking at the actual process of using SMTP mail on the Internet, lets assume we have two companies and, a user at a...

One of the most common questions I get asked is “how do I configure my Exchange 2000 Server to collect mail from my ISP?” The answer I normally give is “why do you want to do that?” It is possible to configure Exchange 2000 to collect mail from an ISP but you need to purchase a POP3 connector and they can be expensive and they are not the most reliable things in the world. Having Exchange 2000 host your company’s Internet mail is not complicated and does not take long to configure. One of the...

Many companies, not wanting to invest a lot of money in an expensive contact management solution use Outlook public folders for their purpose. They add this folder to the Outlook Address Book, and voila, they’ve got contacts sorted according to categories and put into distribution lists, ready to be e-mailed, faxed of harassed using other means before any major holiday by the people from marketing. However, using MAPI folders for this is slow, especially if you’ve got hundreds of contacts....

When Microsoft released Exchange 2000, they made many changes to Outlook Web Access (or OWA for short). The first change that everyone noticed was the fact that the old yellow logon screen was no longer displayed, instead; OWA takes you straight into the Inbox of the required mailbox, which it gets from Active Directory. Okay, not everyone misses the logon screen, but many people do, and a surprising number of people are asking how they can get it, or something similar, back; either because they...

It is rarely wise to do something simply because you can. With Service Pack 2 of Exchange 2000, it is now possible to run Exchange 2000 and Microsoft Sharepoint Portal Server on the same box. I may argue against such a configuration in the name of network efficiency, but I am not completely one-sided in my opinions when I touch ever so cautiously—on the few special scenarios for which it may be a good idea after all....

The need for email disclaimer messages is now fairly well established. While it’s not easy to quantify the value of such things, it is indisputable that emails now constitute legal documents, and as such, are required to include a certain amount of information about the sending company, such as registration numbers, addresses, and so on. It is too early to say whether or not the legal protection offered by disclaimers has been established to everyone’s satisfaction, but many Exchange administrat...

Out of the box, most email server products provide limited monitoring, security, and anti-spam functions. In those that do, the feature set tends to be weak and seemingly implemented as an afterthought. However, the new GFI MailEssentials 8 product from GFI Software not only provides the most comprehensive anti-spam capabilities currently available, but also industrial-strength mail monitoring, the ability to add disclaimers to all outgoing messages, and more. Impressively, GFI provides many of ...

In this article we will look at how we can modify the DisplayName field in Active Directory to use the LastName, FirstName format, this will then ensure that the Address Lists used by your users will be sorted by LastName. For some unknown reason Microsoft decided that it would be a good idea if the Global Address Lists where formatted to sort the objects by the Display Name field in Active Directory, this on its own is not a bad idea, however, the Display Name field in Active Directory takes th...

Exchange 2000, internally, unlike traditional SMTP mail servers, does not rely on DNS MX records for mail delivery within the organization. Instead, it maintains a dynamic routing table used to transport mail around the Exchange organization. However, Exchange 2000 does depend on DNS for resolving host names, finding global catalog servers and finding other mail servers on the Internet. Also, without MX records on Internet DNSs, you wouldn't get mail from the Internet into your corporate environ...

It seems that a lot of businesses today depend on the use of e-mail. E-mail accumulates, even for small businesses and when people do not know how to manage their mail things can get easily out of hand. Frequently these users are the managers of the company so they cannot be "told" to keep their mailbox light. This leads a lot of companies to break the 16GB barrier that Exchange Standard Edition (and SBS) has on the private information store. So if you're managing a small network you know that t...
