"..Unnatural work produces too much stress.."

Restricting email to the Internet on a per user AND per domain basis

This blog post is meant to show how easy it now is to accomplish this oft heard request in Exchange 2010. Transport rules, introduced with Exchange 2007, provided a lot of new options for administration of mail resulting in even more requests for additional functionality. The rules now have new predicates and actions extending the possibilities of what can be done. For our example, the rule will restrictActive Directory Mail enabled users” who have their ‘Department‘ defined as ‘Temp Employees‘ from sending mail to the internet, except they must be allowed to send to 2 external domains called: ‘partnerdomain.com‘ and ‘fourthcoffee.com‘. Additionally, to reduce Helpdesk calls, you want to send an NDR when they violate the rule. For demonstration purposes I will use 2 Conditions, one Action and one Exception.

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 – Organizational Settings for MailTips

MailTips are informative messages displayed to users while they compose a message. Works with only Exchange server 2010 with Outlook 2007/2010.

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 analyzes the message, including the list of recipients to which it’s addressed. If a potential problem is detected, MailTips notify users prior to sending the message. With the help of the information provided by MailTips, senders can adjust the message they are composing to avoid undesirable situations or non-delivery reports (NDRs).

You can’t use the EMC to enable or disable MailTips. You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, click here

EMS : Set-OrganizationConfig cmdlet to enable or disable MailTips in your organization. MailTips are enabled by default, when you install a new Exchange 2010 organization.

Examples of Mailtips, when you activate is like

  • Invalid Internal Recipient : The Invalid Internal Recipient MailTip is displayed if the sender adds a recipient that appears to be internal to the organization but doesn’t exist in Active Directory. It comes due to name resolution cache or an entry in the sender’s Contacts or if the sender types an SMTP address with a domain for which Exchange is authoritative and the address doesn’t resolve to an existing recipient. The MailTip indicates the invalid recipient and gives the sender the option to remove the recipient from the message…cool na
  • Mail Box full :  MailTip is displayed if the sender adds a recipient whose mailbox is full and your organization has implemented a Prohibit Receive restriction for mailboxes over a specified size. MailTip will be updated every two hours in his/her draft folder even if you save it and did’nt send the message.
  • External Recipients : The External Recipients MailTip is displayed if the sender adds a recipient that’s external, or adds a distribution group that contains external recipients. By default, this MailTip is turned off. You can turn it on using the Set-TransportConfig cmdlet. The External Recipients MailTip relies on group metrics data. Therefore, if you enable the External Recipients MailTip, make sure that the group metrics MailTip is also enabled. EMS : Set-OrganizationConfig -MailTipsExternalRecipientsTipsEnabled $true
