Exchange Architecture Poster

Hi everyone,

Exchange 2010 Architecture Poster and Exchange 2007 Architecture Poster



Enabling POP3 and IMAP protocol settings via ADSI (VBScript)

When you install Exchange and create all your mailboxes by default every mailbox will have POP3,IMAP and HTTP protocols enabled. Good practice is if you don't want people to use these protocols is just disable the protocols on the server which makes the user account settings redundant. But this is not always possible and sometimes you need to leave POP3 and IMAP access enabled for some applications or clients. So to stop people using POP3 and IMAP it can be a good idea to disable that protocol on their Active Directory user account

Set objOU = GetObject(ldap://CN=user1,OU=UserH,DC=company,DC=net/)
objOU.PutEx 2, "protocolSettings",ARRAY("HTTP§1§1§§§§§§","OWA§0","MAPI§0§§§§§§§","POP3§1§1§4§ISO-8859-1§0§§§","IMAP4§1§1§4§ISO-8859-1§0§1§0§



Exchange 2010 On-Premises or On-Line? What is the Microsoft Exchange Team vision?

I want to share this interesting note to Microsoft's vice president:

Over the past several weeks, I've had the opportunity to present interviews with members of the Microsoft Exchange Server team, talking about topics such as the Personal Archives feature of Exchange Server 2010, improvements to unified messaging (UM) and Exchange Online, and the importance of the Exchange ActiveSync protocol. To round out this series, I spoke with Microsoft corporate vice president Rajesh Jha about what the future holds for Exchange Server. Of course, much of this conversation focused on the role Exchange plays in Office 365 and the cloud, but Rajesh also had a lot to say about the importance of listening and responding to the requirements of customers and embracing changes in technology as a way to move the Exchange team forward.
