Tags: , , ,

ninjaStarWebDAV protocol is no more in Exchange 2010. PFDAVAdmin, a great tool to troubleshoot Public Folder and Mailbox related issues, works on top of WebDAV thus it gets retired and now new tool called “ExFolders” born here.

ExFolders is a replica of PFDavAdmin but some of the features are discontinued and some are introduced too. Continue reading at MSExchangeTeam blog on what Bill Long says: Exchange, meet ExFolders

This tool can be downloaded from here.

Exchange 2007: Database Statistics in Powershell

Many times we need to find number of mailboxes in each database and the size of the database (EDB file) of all servers in an Exchange 2007 environment. With PowerShell, it is fairly simple to grab in a single line.

1.  How do we find number of mailboxes in each database?

On Screen: Get-MailboxDatabase | Select Server, StorageGroupName, Name, @{Name="Number Of Mailboxes";expression={(Get-Mailbox -Database $_.Identity | Measure-Object).Count}} | Format-Table -AutoSize

Export to CSV: Get-MailboxDatabase | Select Server, StorageGroupName, Name, @{Name="Number Of Mailboxes";expression={(Get-Mailbox -Database $_.Identity | Measure-Object).Count}} | Export-Csv C:\ServerStat-1.csv

2.  How do we find number of mailboxes and size of EDB file for each Database?

On Screen: Get-MailboxDatabase | Select Server, StorageGroupName, Name, @{Name="Size (GB)";Expression={$objitem = (Get-MailboxDatabase $_.Identity); $path = "`\`\" + $objitem.server + "`\" + $objItem.EdbFilePath.DriveName.Remove(1).ToString() + "$"+ $objItem.EdbFilePath.PathName.Remove(0,2); $size = ((Get-ChildItem $path).length)/1048576KB; [math]::round($size, 2)}}, @{Name="Size (MB)";Expression={$objitem = (Get-MailboxDatabase $_.Identity); $path = "`\`\" + $objitem.server + "`\" + $objItem.EdbFilePath.DriveName.Remove(1).ToString() + "$"+ $objItem.EdbFilePath.PathName.Remove(0,2); $size = ((Get-ChildItem $path).length)/1024KB; [math]::round($size, 2)}}, @{Name="No. Of Mbx";expression={(Get-Mailbox -Database $_.Identity | Measure-Object).Count}} | Format-table -AutoSize

Export to CSV: Get-MailboxDatabase | Select Server, StorageGroupName, Name, @{Name="Size (GB)";Expression={$objitem = (Get-MailboxDatabase $_.Identity); $path = "`\`\" + $objitem.server + "`\" + $objItem.EdbFilePath.DriveName.Remove(1).ToString() + "$"+ $objItem.EdbFilePath.PathName.Remove(0,2); $size = ((Get-ChildItem $path).length)/1048576KB; [math]::round($size, 2)}}, @{Name="Size (MB)";Expression={$objitem = (Get-MailboxDatabase $_.Identity); $path = "`\`\" + $objitem.server + "`\" + $objItem.EdbFilePath.DriveName.Remove(1).ToString() + "$"+ $objItem.EdbFilePath.PathName.Remove(0,2); $size = ((Get-ChildItem $path).length)/1024KB; [math]::round($size, 2)}}, @{Name="No. Of Mbx";expression={(Get-Mailbox -Database $_.Identity | Measure-Object).Count}} | Export-CSV C:\ServerStat-2.csv

Exchange 2010: ‘Send As’ and ‘Send on Behalf Of’ in OWA

Filed under: Exchange,Exchange 2007,Exchange 2010,OWA — Amit Tank @ 10:58 pm
Tags: , , ,

As we know Exchange 2010 is coming with many wonderful new and improved features. Let me demonstrate one of the long awaited feature, “Send-As” or “Send on Behalf Of” in OWA..!!!

Before going forward, let me show you how to enable BCC and From fields in options.

Go to Options –> Settings –> Mail –> Message format and enable below option “Always Show From” and also if you want enable Bcc field to available always by default, select “Always Show Bcc”.

Yes, that’s true now you can keep Bcc option enabled by default in Exchange 2010 as opposed to enabling every time from “Options” while drafting a new mail in Exchange 2007 (however there is a workaround to keep it enabled by default in Exchange 2007).

Back to main topic, when you draft a new mail, you can see ‘From’ tab and you can select “Other e-mail address…” on the account you have Send-As or Send on Behalf Of permissions.

Send On Behalf Of : Let’s say I have Send On Behalf Of permission on Jayesh Raval, I selected it in From field and sending a mail to Santosh Pandya.

Santosh Pandya will see a mail from “Amit Tank on behalf of Jayesh Raval”.

Send As : Let’s say I have Send As permission on Nikunj Khunt, I selected it in From field and sending a mail to Santosh Pandya.

Santosh Pandya will see that mail came from Nikunj Knunt.

Now if you don’t have Send As or Send on Behalf of permission, of course Mail Tips gives you an error and doesn’t allow you to send mail like outlook.

Isn’t OWA 2010 a shadow of Outlook? Kudos to Exchange team for making such an immense product for us…!!
