Delivery report issues with attachments in Exchange 2010

Filed under: exchange 2010 — xavier Rodriguez @ 1:12 pm

I am involved in a email migration project from  Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.This morning I have been warned about an issue with a migrated mailbox in Exchange 2010 related to Delivery Receipt .
A user request a delivery receipt from a Mailbox Stored in Exchange 2010 server ,and  he receive it but without the original email (attached).
Users with mailbox stored in Exchange 2003 are still receiving  this attachment.
After Reviewing so many parameters in the Exchange server  I found the root cause of this behaviour.
I found a paramater in the transport global settings that control how Exchange handles delivery status notifications (DSNs) that are generated by earlier versions of Exchange or non-Exchange messaging systems.
Yo can get the value for this parameter running the following cmdlet:

Get-TransportConfig  | fl DSNConversionMode
The values for this parameter are the following:

  •     UseExchangeDSNs
  •     PreserveDSNBody
  •     DoNotConvert

You can change the value for this parameter running the following cmdlet:

Set-TransportConfig  -DSNConversionMode (value)
By default, this parameter is set to UseExchangeDSNs and Exchange converts the DSNs to the Exchange 2010 DSN format. Any customized text or attachments that were associated with the original DSN are overwritten.
If you set this parameter to PreserveDSNBody, Exchange converts the DSNs to Exchange 2010 DSN format but any customized text or attachments of the DSN message is retained.
If you set this parameter to DoNotConvert, Exchange does not modify the DSN message. Instead, Exchange 2010 delivers the message as a standard message.

Restricting RPC dynamic ports on Exchange 2010 to work with firewalls.

Filed under: exchange 2010 — xavier Rodriguez @ 12:26 pm

For default Exchange 2010 use RPC dynamic ports from 1026 to 49000 on Mailbox rol
and RPC dynamic ports from 6005 to 49000 on Client Access rol.

If you are deploying CAS rol and MAILBOX between subnets and across firewall you can restrict RPC dynamic ports.
You can use command netsh for this task.
To show present configuration:

Netsh int ipv4 show dynamicportrange tcp
Netsh int ipv4 show dynamicportrange udp

To change configuration:

Netsh int ipv4 set dynamicportrange protocol=tcp startport=49152 numberofports=255
Netsh int ipv4 set dynamicportrange protocol=udp startport=49152 numberofports=255

Restart to apply changes.

Note: The minimum range of ports on W2008R2 that can be set is 255. The minimum starting port that can be set is 1025. The maximum end port (based on the range being configured) cannot exceed 65535.

Firmas automáticas con Exchange

Filed under: exchange 2010 — xavier Rodriguez @ 11:23 am

Exchange 2010 te permite utilizar variables informadas en Directorio Activo útiles para automatizar comunicados o firmas personalizadas de forma dinámica.
Las variables se representan entre simbolos %%, por ejemplo %%email%%.
Los campos que admite como variables son los siguientes:
“UserLogonName,DisplayName,FirstName,Initials,LastName,PhoneNumber,OtherPhoneNumber,HomePhoneNumber,OtherHomePhoneNumber,PagerNumber,MobileNumber,FaxNumber,OtherFaxNumber,Email,Street,POBox,City,State,ZipCode,Country,Title,Department,Manager,Office,Company,Notes,CustomAttributes”.
La configuración es muy simple, basta con crear una regla de transporte con la siguiente condición,”from users that are inside the organization”, y como acción añadir un texto “append disclaimer text and fallback to action if unable to apply”.
El texto a añadir debe ser en formato html y debe incluir las variables como en el siguiente ejemplo:
#html#
#body#
#table border=”0″ width=”100%”#
#tr#
td valign=”top”##font face=”Garamond”#
#b#%%Firstname%% %%Lastname%%#/b##/font##br#
#font size=”2″ face=”Calibri”#%%department%%#br#
Telephone: %%Phone%% #br#
%%Company%% #br#
%%Street%% #br#
%%City%%, %%State%%, %%ZipCode%%
%%Email%%
#/font##/td#
#/tr#
#/table#
#/body#
#/html#

Nota: modifica en el codigo los caracteres # por >< segun toque.

Con un poco de imaginación puedes incluir también un link con la foto del usuario, pero obviamente este link debe ser publicado en internet para que el destinatario pueda ver la foto.

No se puede eliminar el directorio CatalogData en Exchange 2010.

Filed under: exchange 2010 — xavier Rodriguez @ 12:20 pm

Al mover el Path de una base de datos en Exchange 2010 a un Path nuevo no puede eliminarse el directorio del Path antiguo.
EL motivo es porque los ficheros de indexación del catalogo están en uso por el servicio de Indexación.
Solución:
En primer lugar deberemos verificar que el nuevo Path ya contiene los ficheros de indexación dentro de un directorio con un nombre tipo “CatalogData-f6xxxxxx”.
Detener el servicio “Exchange Indexing Service” .
Con el servicio detenido es posible eliminar el path antiguo y los ficheros del catalogo.
Una vez eliminados, Iniciar el servicio
