Do you have any anti virus software running on that exchange box? Is it
hosting your SMTP traffic as well. I m in my intial testing with Exch2k and
have seen norton 7.6 do the same thing. What I am developing is that my
smtp, filtering and antivirus are going to be on one machine and my exchange
users and mailbox are going to be on another.. This is a great solution to
help protect yourself from virii etc.

Let me know,.

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange and Instant Messenging question.

        After the installation of Exchange 2000, and the rollover began, for
the next two days, I had STORE.EXE pegged up to 100% CPU and roughly 90% of
the total RAM in the machine was being used.  After the first day, I
defragged the database, and after the second day, I started to cry.
Regardless, when STORE.EXE hit it's high's, Outlook users complained about
long waits between clicking on an e-mail, and the e-mail to actually come
up.  The server is only hosting about 40 e-mail accounts, so I can not
imagine the users clicking around would cause this intensive CPU use.

        Any suggestions as to what I can check out?  The second day, I
ordered 2GB more of RAM for the server (yet to come in), but this has not
happened since.

        Also, after about 1 week of doing the same thing over and over
again, I finally have instant messenging up and running.  The only problem
is, one of my users can not login from their workstation (or any
workstation).  They get the error message relating to the account not having
permission to login as that user.  I have verified the settings, and
everything is working, except this one account.  When I created another
account for this user, they still could not login to Messenger, but when I
created an account for another user, this worked fine.

        Are there any logs I can check besides the WWW logs?

Subject: [exchangelist] Missing 'From'

We recently installed Exchange Server 5.5.  We have Outlook 98 clients.

My problem is that when I send an email to addresses outside of the company,
the From information is left off.  I've sent email to an account on
(and others), and when that account looks at the email, the From is blank.
They are able to reply to the email fine, but when they are looking at the
list of new emails it appears as possible junk mail because the From is

Any ideas?  Exchange problem?  Outlook problem?
