to send e-mail for troubleshooting purposes

POP3 access and SMTP E-Mail transfer using the good old Telnet client. Why am I 
writing an article about POP3 and SMTP troubleshooting with the help of Telnet? 
Telnet gives you some powerful information about every connection step for POP3 
or SMTP processes.

Title: Things to Do When Your Exchange gets Blacklisted

anywhere and your SMTP queue is full of junk. This could easily get you into

rid you of these attacks. This article will deal with how to get your Exchange 
server out of block lists and stop attacks at the same time.

Title: Site Consolidation Tools for Exchange Server 2003
Author: Marc Grote
Summary: In this article I will give you a step by step solution to deploy the 
Site Consolidation Tools for Exchange 2003 in Mixed Mode. Have you ever tried 
to move a Mailbox between different administrative Groups in Exchange 2003 
Mixed Mode? – It doesn’t work. What do you do when you are deploying an Upgrade 
from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003? What do you do with the Outlook Profiles? 
How can you update these settings to reflect the new Server? The answer is 
easy. Install Exchange 2003 SP1 and the updated version of the Exchange 2003 
Deployment Tools and life will go easier. You will see this later in this 

Title: Protecting Exchange against Spam
Author: Amit Zinman
Summary: Unsolicited e-mail, more commonly known as spam is a rising and 
complex problem. Unlike viruses, spam mail does not have a clear and cut 
signature.  Anyone could send you an e-mail you wouldn't want to receive so 
determining which e-mail you definitely would not want to accept can be tricky. 
Various anti-spam packages exist. However, integrating them into your mail 
systems is not trivial. They have so many options that may help you prevent 
spam but can also cause a lot trouble and increase "where is my mail" type help 
desk calls. I hope to cover most aspects of combating spam here to make it 
easier for you to decide which solution is best for your needs.

Title: Configuring the InterOrg Replication Tool
Author: Marc Grote
Summary: The Inter-Organization Replication tool was initially released as part 
of Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 SP3, with an Update for Microsoft Exchange 
Server 2003. This tool is used to replicate public folder content and free and 
busy information between different Exchange organizations. It allows the 
coordination of meetings, appointments and contacts.


In this article I will give you a step by step solution to setup an InterOrg 
Replication between two different Exchange 2003 Organizations.


Title: Securing SMTP Connections to Specific Servers
Author: Amit Zinman
Summary: SMTP is basically a non-secure protocol. E-mail fraud and spoofing is 
not difficult to do. This means anyone can send you an e-mail posing as someone 
else. Moreover, SMTP mail is typically sent in clear text and can be 
intercepted on the way by anyone using "sniffers", programs that record network 
activity. In this article you'll learn how to send and receive encrypted mail.

Title: GAL Sync with the Identity Integration Feature Pack (IIFP)
Author: Marc Grote
Summary: The Windows 2003 Forest is the logical boundary of Exchange 2003. 
Microsoft recommends deploying only one Active Directory Forest whenever 
possible. There are many reasons for single forest deployment beginning with 
the administrative overhead through the need to synchronize the Global Address 
Lists of Exchange 2003 between two forests to provide a central GAL. But what 
if you have more than one forest with Exchange 2003 (through a merger or 
acquisition)? In this article I will explain in high level steps how to 
synchronize the GALs (Global Access Lists) of two Exchange 2003 organizations 
with the help of IIFP. This article should give you an overview about this 
complex process.

Title: Exchange 2000 Diagnostics Logging
Author: Amit Zinman
Summary: Diagnostics logging might be a powerful tool, especially if you know 
something about the inner workings of Exchange. It can also be a time saver 
when talking to Microsoft support services that can analyze the information and 
help you in a time of need.
