I sometimes come across customers that would like to relay email through their Exchange Sever from external clients and maybe use a different sending address. Here is how I configure this.
First, we will create a new receive connector via the Exchange Powershell. To do so, open up the Exchange Management Shell (powershell)
Once this loads, use [...]
Today my wife updated her Sprint Samsung Transform phone with the latest Android OS. I have been waiting for Sprint to push out this update as I found a very strange bug in the base OS that was shipped with the phone in November 2010.
For a list of versions and when they were shipped, see [...]

After migrating a SBS 2003 server to a SBS 2008, a good practice is to run not only the SBS 2008 BPA but also the Exchange 2007 BPA built into the Exchange Management Console. In this case, the SBS BPA revealed no issues, but Exchange did. In the Exchange BPA, it was showing

One thing to note, if you want the auto reply to work from outside the organization, make sure in Exchange hub transport to select under the remote [...]
I ran into a strange issue on a SBS 2008 box with relation to mail flow. I was noticing that mail being sent to outside companies is stuck in the Queue. Not all mail, but a lot of it. When looking at the “Last Error” in the Queue Viewer, I notice most of those connections [...]
I often have to configure SBS 2008 (Exchange 2007) to allow mail to relay from devices like APC UPS’s, network switches, copiers and other devices or programs on the local SBS SMTP server. This is not always suggested as if you get a virus on the network or bot, it can start sending all kinds [...]

Have you run into this error on a Exchange 2007 server, or a SBS 2008 box? While working on a clients network this week, I ran into it. After doing some research, a simple modification needs to be made. Open up a Powershell and use the command Set-ReceieveConnector –identity “Default [servername]” –maxmessagesize 20MB
