Part 5: Infrastructure essentials Blogcast – Exchange mailbox and Outlook Profile

Continuing the blogcast series on infrastructure essentials.

The next stage in our infrastructure is to extend our infrastructure by building in one of the most important infrastructure applications - email. Our configuration uses Exchange 2003, and the first task for email is to create a mailbox for that user in Exchange. We take a brief look at the RUS (Recipient Update Service) which determines our email addressing format. Once the mailbox is setup, we need to test it. We do this through creating a basic profile in Outlook 2003 to point to the users mailbox. Using that profile, we verify everything is working by sending an email to ourselves. Click here to view.

If you look closely, you'll notice that Outlook throws an error during send/receive 0x8004010F "The operation failed. An object could not be found", even though we did successfully send an email to ourselves. We'll solve that very simply in the next blogcast!

    Can you possible show us how to set vpn access up next? I tried doing it myself and it doesnt seem to work properly.

    Error is normal since your OAB was probably not generated (you’re running a VM and it’s off at night, during OAB generation at 5 am).

    In consequence you can use cached mode, but not OAB, yet.
