New install froma newb - 25.Feb.2010 10:38:00 PM

The last time I worked on Exchange, it was Exchange 2000 and it was already installed and configured. I merely had to maintain the users on it.

Now, in my new job, I need to roll out a brand new installation! And from what I understand, 2007 is much more complex than 2000 or 2003.

Installation is complete, did the whole /PrepareAD, Schema, and Domain. Everything installed, but defaulted to domain.local instead domain.com. I was able to fix that.

Then I noticed that it created everyone's email address based upon an automatically produced alias, which was their firstname.lastname. Our addresses have always been firstinitiallastname, so I guess I have to manually change each account.

Now, when trying to connect to my mailbox, I get an "The Bookmark is not Valid" error. The server is not connected to the outside world in any way. OWA doesn't work because the SSL expired.

And I have no idea what to do! ANY help is appreciated. Thank you.

If you modify the default Email Address Policy, you don't have to do it maually. You may defina the First.LastName as email generation scheme.

Exchange 2007 requires a 3rd party UCC /SAN certificate for OWA. You use a self-signed certificate but that will give certificate warning. Mobile devices cannot sync using self-signed certificate.

By the way, did you know you posted this in the Exchange 2010 forum?  We have forums dedicated to Exchange 2007 as well.

I can't believe I did that. I thought I selected the right forum for this! Moderator, please feel free to move this topic.

I looked everywhere (where I thought to look anyway) to see the default Email Address Policy, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I'm sure it was someplace super simple, but where?
