Exchange 2010: What is the Difference Between Disabling or Removing a Mailbox. Tracking Mailbox Owner Deletes Using Mailbox Audit Logging. I’ve had some questions from readers asking whether it is possible to tell when a mailbox user has deleted items from their own mailbox. This question seems to come from those very special support situations where an end user is blaming others for email going missing. I guess if the situation is serious enough then some audit trail would certainly be useful for proving who deleted the mailbox items.
I’ve previously covered mailbox audit logging, which is a feature of both Exchange Server 2010 and 2013. In my demonstrations of mailbox audit logging I tend to focus on auditing administrator and delegate actions, which are a more common support scenario in my experience. However, auditing of mailbox owner actions is also possible, it is just not enabled by default. Before we proceed I’ll just highlight that mailbox audit logging does consume storage on the Exchange server. So let’s take a look at how this works.

PowerShell: Reporting Exchange 2010 Message Tracking Event IDs. A useful report to generate from the Exchange Server 2010 message tracking logs is a summary of the different message tracking events that have occurred.
Each message tracking log entry records an event ID from the following list: Each event means different things. Healthy messages may record multiple receive, send, transfer, submit or deliver events, depending on your environment. Unhealthy messages may record badmail or fail events. While there is no hard and fast rules about what percentage of each event you should see, it is still useful to take a look at a summary of the different events IDs in case you notice something that may warrant further investigation. You can generate this summary using PowerShell and the Get-MessageTrackingLog cmdlet. For more tips and examples on searching message tracking logs with PowerShell check out this article. Incidentally you may find this type of summary report to be faster to generate using Log Parser instead. Understanding Shadow Redundancy in Exchange 2010.
One of the improvements made in Exchange 2010 is the redundancy built-in to the routing of messages through the Exchange environment. Microsoft built-in a technology they call “Shadow Redundancy” which the concept behind shadow redundancy is that a message is not deleted from the queue until the next hop has confirmed delivery to the subsequent hop. If confirmation is not received, the message is resubmitted. If the next hop server is down, the message is resubmitted to another server. Bottomline, messages are no longer lost when a routing server fails. NOTE: Assured delivery requires that there be redundant Hub Transport and Edge Transport servers to resubmit to if a failure of any given transport server occurs.
The components of the shadow redundancy follow: As an excerpt from my book “Exchange 2010 Unleashed”, one of my co-authors, Chris Amaris, describes a mail flow using shadow redundancy in the following example.

Understanding Exchange Server Accepted Domain Exchange Server 2007 introduced new terminology for describing the domain names that it will accept email for, and what it will do with that email. This is referred to in Exchange Server 2007 as Accepted Domains. In Microsoft’s own words, “an accepted domain is any Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) namespace for which a Microsoft Exchange organization sends or receives e-mail.” Accepted Domains fall into one of 3 categories – Authoritative, Internal Relay, and External Relay.
Any given namespace that is an Accepted Domain can be only one of those three types. Authoritative Domains Authoritative Domains are those for which an Exchange organization hosts mailboxes that have email addresses that use that domain. For example, a company named Contoso Pty Ltd may own the domain name contoso.com and use email addresses of email@example.com. An organization can have more than one Authoritative Domain configured. Internal Relay Domains Summary Like this: Configure Exchange Server send/receive settings in Outlook 2010. This document is archived and information here might be outdated.

When creating a new mailbox using the New Mailbox wizard in the Exchange console, you are required to enter a number of parameters. The Completion page/dialog box in the wizard shows the shell command used under the hood to create the mailbox. This functionality is quite useful in understanding the commands used by such wizards, and the syntax that can be used in the shell to accomplish the same task. (As a side note, this display of commands is limited to wizards. If you add/modify a configuration setting directly, the commands used are not displayed). When creating a new mailbox for a user Jim Murphy, the shell command used is displayed in the screenshot below. The new-mailbox command creates a new user account in Active Directory, and a new mailbox in Exchange. However, a new mailbox can be created using far fewer parameters - as shown below: $password = Read-Host "Enter Password" -AsSecureString Note, not all the parameters used and displayed by the New Mailbox wizard are required.
