Hi ExchangeList,

New articles added to last month:

Title: Doing an in-place upgrade from Exchange Server 2000 to 2003
Author: Henrik Walther
Summary: We would like to welcome Microsoft MVP Henrik Walther to our team of 
authors as he presents his first article to 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.

Title: Congratulations to Henrik Walther
Author: Mark Fugatt
Summary: Congratulations to Henrik Walther, Henrik has recently been awarded 
the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award from Microsoft for his 
contribution to the Exchange community.

Title: Logging the SMTP Service
Author: Amit Zinman
Summary: SMTP logging can, at times, the key to troubleshooting many mail 
problems by providing valuable information regarding incoming mail. It can also 
be used for providing statistics on mail flow from the Internet. The following 
article describes the secrets of logging SMTP activities for troubleshooting 
and other purposes.

Title: Query-based Distribution Groups
Author: Marc Grote
Summary: A query-based distribution group is a new additional type of 
distribution group in Exchange 2003. This new type of distribution group 
provides the same functionality as a standard distribution group; however, 
instead of specifying static user memberships, a query-based distribution group 
allows you to use an LDAP query to dynamically build membership in the 
distribution group (for example All employees with a special group membership). 
Using query-based distribution groups we can reduce the administration costs 
dramatically. However a Query-based Distribution Group needs more Server 
resources like CPU power and RAM.

Title: Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-002: Vulnerability in Exchange Server 
2003 Could Lead to Privilege Escalation
Author: Admin
Summary: A vulnerability exists in the way that Hypertext Transfer Protocol 
(HTTP) connections are reused when NTLM authentication is used between 
front-end Exchange 2003 servers providing OWA access and , when running Outlook 
Web Access (OWA) on Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003, and when using 
back-end Exchange 2003 servers that are running Windows Server 2003.

Title: SMTP Event Sinks - A window into Exchange integration (Part 2).
Author: Alex Zammit
Summary: Event sinks today play a key role in a wide variety of Exchange 
integrated solutions. We conclude this article series taking a hands-on 
approach to real live maintenance and troubleshooting techniques. This in-depth 
article is recommended to most Exchange administrators who today rely on 
various third party sink extensions.

Title: Configuring DNS for Exchange 2000
Author: Amit Zinman
Summary: 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 environment.

Title: Configuring the Outlook 2003 RPC over HTTP Client
Author: Thomas Shinder
Summary: The RPC over HTTP protocol allows your full Outlook 2003 MAPI clients 
to connect to Exchange 2003 Servers using HTTP/HTTPS. This solves the problem 
remote Outlook 2003 users have when located behind restrictive firewalls. The 
trick is to figure out how to properly configure the Outlook 2003 client to use 
this protocol. If you have remote users who need to access Exchange 2003 via 
Outlook 2003, then check out this article and see how to configure Outlook 2003 
to use RPC over HTTP.
