If for some reason you need to enable Basic Authentication, you can do so quickly through the Exchange Management Shell. This is sometimes needed if you're migrating to Exchange from another (third-party) e-mail provider.
If you do not know what Basic Authentication is, you do not need this!
Start up EMS as an account which has the required permissions to make changes to the virtual directories used by Exchange. Then, run this:
Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity "EWS (Default Web Site)" -BasicAuthentication $true
Note that Office365 has Basic Authentication enabled by default.
Exchange stores plenty of things in Active Directory, including mailbox information for each account. In case of a deinstallation of Exchange, this information usually remains behind, making it impossible to perform a new clean installation of Exchange and assigning a new mailbox to this user.
This command-line tool allows you to query and/or remove Exchange-attributes on AD objects (such as users and groups).
To allow an Exchange user to send from an external e-mail address, perform the following steps:
Get-MailContact MyUser@MyExternalDomain.com | Add-ADPermission -User MyUser@MyLocalDomain -AccessRights ExtendedRight -ExtendedRights "Send As"Replace the first e-mail address with the external one, the second part contains the user you wish to assign the permission to.
Currently, Exchange/Outlook only supports client-side rules if you want to move messages to a specific folder, depending on which alias it's sent to. This means that the rule only works when Outlook is running, which is not always possible.
You can workaround the issue by creating a rule that checks for the content of the message headers. This type of rule can be created server-side and will always run when messages arrive on the Exchange server. By checking whether the alias is present in the message headers, you can easily create a rule that moves those messages to another folder.
A note of warning I read on the Avast Forums: if your Avast subscription runs out, the Exchange Information Store no longer starts and bails out with an error "failed to start virus scan". Very annoying indeed...
