NDRs have been with us since the very early days of email and several Internet Task Force (IETF) Request for Comments (RFCs) have addressed the need for email servers to generate NDRs in a common format. Given the use of SMTP as the de facto email connectivity standard for many years now (does anyone still use X.400?), you&rsquo;d expect that NDRs would be a well-rounded feature of any self-respecting email server.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/tony-redmonds-exchange-unwashed-0">Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/blog/changing-nature-email-ndrs" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/changing-nature-email-ndrs#comments Exchange Server 2013 Office 365 Exchange Server 2010 delivery status notification delivery status notification DSN DSN Exchange 2013 Exchange 2013 Exchange Online Exchange Online Gmail gmail Google Google NDR NDR Non-delivery report Non-delivery report Office 365 Office 365 RFC RFC Yahoo Mail Yahoo Mail Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Blog Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Tue, 22 Jul 2014 12:00:00 +0000 94841 at http://windowsitpro.com Protect users by suppressing Outlook's conflict resolution reports http://windowsitpro.com/blog/protect-users-suppressing-outlooks-conflict-resolution-reports <div class="node-body blog-body">Most of the time Outlook just gets on with the job of sending and receiving email.

Although Microsoft has put a lot of effort into adding functionality to the graphical Exchange management tools, literally every management function that can be performed in Exchange is available to you in EMS. As PowerShell becomes more deeply entrenched in Microsoft&rsquo;s product lines and as Microsoft continues to add new functionality to new versions of Exchange, investing the time to get comfortable with EMS automation will greatly ease your day-to-day life as an Exchange administrator.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/solarwinds/essential-guide-exchange-management-using-ems" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Exchange Server 2013 SolarWinds Exchange Server 2010 Resources Essential Guide Exchange management solarwinds Solarwinds White Paper Tue, 15 Apr 2014 20:12:00 +0000 102201 at http://windowsitpro.com Cherish old Exchange databases to avoid the pesky DatabaseGuidNotFound error http://windowsitpro.com/blog/cherish-old-exchange-databases-avoid-pesky-databaseguidnotfound-error <div class="node-body blog-body"><p>Since Microsoft released Exchange 2013 SP1 on February 25, a number of similar errors have been reported in different forums, all of which have the following characteristics:</p> <p>&middot;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; User mailboxes are moved from Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2013 SP1 databases.</p> <p>&middot;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The old databases are removed from the organization.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/tony-redmonds-exchange-unwashed-0">Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/blog/cherish-old-exchange-databases-avoid-pesky-databaseguidnotfound-error" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/cherish-old-exchange-databases-avoid-pesky-databaseguidnotfound-error#comments Exchange Server 2013 Exchange Server 2010 Exchange Server 2007 ActiveSync ActiveSync bug bug DatabaseGuidNotFound DatabaseGuidNotFound EAS EAS error error Exchange 2007 Exchange 2007 Exchange 2010 Exchange 2010 Exchange 2013 SP1 Exchange 2013 SP1 Outlook Web App Outlook Web App OWA OWA Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Blog Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Fri, 11 Apr 2014 20:53:00 +0000 101411 at http://windowsitpro.com What to do (and what not to do) at the Microsoft Exchange Conference http://windowsitpro.com/blog/what-do-and-what-not-do-microsoft-exchange-conference <div class="node-body blog-body"><p>The suitcase is packed (with too much stuff), the air tickets are confirmed, I have great hope that a hotel room will be waiting, and I&rsquo;m off to the <a href="http://www.iammec.com/" target="_blank">Microsoft Exchange Conference</a> (MEC) in Austin.
