They're running Exchange 2007, I set up exchange fresh, and have the 40 gb EDB and a ton of transaction log files from the old server, but restoring the edb into the new server appears to be basically voodoo. All of the write-ups I've seen on restoring databases in this situation mostly involve using a recovery store, but that public folders don't work with a recovery store.

What do I need to do to get the public folder database up and running again without sacrificing a goat?

Don't quote me on this, but you should be able to use Outlook to dump the public folders to a PST file, and then export or save them as MSG files then.

I'm quoting you. ha


That would probably be possible if the public folders were cached in an OST. That's how I recovered their mailboxes. I'll look into it, but if all of the folders were not cached, it may not work.

e: I would prefer to be able to mount the edb in exchange anyway, if possible

So, after doing some stuff with eseutil, I am getting an error in event viewer that says the db is not mounting because the site and org name are different. After doing some research it appears the only way to resolve this without any downtime on the customers part is going to be:

1. Setup a test install in vmware at my shop, matching the original site and org names
2. Restore db's to test environment.
3. use either exmerge or an outlook client to export what I need to pst
4. import from pst to new server

Am I right in thinking that this is probably the best way to do this?

Customer of mine has started having a problem sending e-mail to specific government related addresses. My message implies that it's being rejected as spam, but I'm not on any of the blacklists I've checked using mxtoolbox or dnsbl. Both the mxtoolbox smtp test and the dns health test seem to show that everything is configured fine on my end. I've had no luck contacting admins for any of the addresses we're having problems with.

Censored NDS follows:
code:
ESMTP rejected your message to the following e-mail addresses:
 
[email]xxxxx@eielson.af.mil[/email] (xxxxx@eielson.af.mil)
 
ESMTP gave this error:
Transaction Failed Spam Message not queued. 
 
A problem occurred during the delivery of this message 
to this e-mail address. Try sending this message again.
 If the problem continues, please contact your helpdesk.

Thanks for the ideas,

rDNS PTR and FQDN both match the mx record of mail.tpeci.com

I have no SPF record set, I will fix that now.

If that doesn't help, I'll come back with SMTPDiag results

SPF record is set, and propagated. SPF record passed tests at http://www.kitterman.com/spf/validate.html

Ran SMTPdiag, and my server passed all of the tests.

We are still having problems with .gov and .mil e-mail addresses.

Are these actual messages or OOO replies that are getting rejected?

Actual e-mail messages are getting rejected.


Mierdaan posted:

I'm not sure what SMTPdiag does - can you walk through the smtp dialog in telnet and see if there's any more information given there?

Annoyingly, if I telnet mail4.blm.gov 25 from the server and send a test e-mail that way, it all appears to go through with no problems, and I have yet to receive an NDR from it. On the other hand, sending a test e-mail from exchange, I still immediately get the same NDR.

Does the old mailbox still exist? If not, you can set an e-mail alias pretty easily. What version of exchange?

It's a bit pricey if your employer isn't willing to pick it up for you though.
