Oddities following installation - 28.Feb.2008 12:25:07 PM

Hi All,

Thanks in advance for anyone who can help.

I have installed Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003, with all SPs applied.

If I use outlook on the server, connected via exchange, I can send and receive emails internally. I can also send emails externally. If I receive an email externally, it shows up in the system manager -> storage group -> Mailbox store -> Mailboxes -> My Mailbox as an incremented count, but Outlook does not pick it up!

If I connect via pop3/smtp from another pc, I can receive mail, but whenever I try and send mail, it persistently pops up the username / password box - even though the username / password combination is definately correct.

If I connect via owa, I get the same outcome as if I use outlook on the server itself!

It seems to me like I have mailbox permission problems or something, but do I not know where to look to find this out -I may be completely wrong though.

Any advice or pointers would be greatly received, as this is really "doing my head in" now!

I work on the basis that Exchange should work straight out of the box without any issues, if it causes problems then the server should be rebuilt.

The first thing I would be looking at is enabling message tracking to ensure that the message is being delivered to the store correctly. If it is, then ensure that a view isn't being used to hide the messages.

When it comes to username/password for POP3/SMTP, the usual domain\username does not work. For POP3 it needs to be domain\username\alias

Hi Simon,

Well at Midnight last night, after spending several hours "faffing" around with it, I did just that - rebuilt the server from scratch

After doing so, it cured the SMTP problems, but then POP3 did not work. After hunting around for why, I found that the win service was set to DISABLED as was the service for IMAP. After enabling them, and starting it again from within System Manager, all seems to be well now (touch wood).
