I am a Unified Communications specialist and trainer, I  live in Sweden and work at Atea Sverige AB.

This blog started as my personal dump for solutions to problems i bump into in my everyday commitment to Exchange Server, Active Directory and Lync. But now days I see this as a way to share my knowledge and possibly help other that have faced the same issues or thoughts that I have. It is also great fun to write a good post and then see that other people actually read it :)

If you can use the information here I’m more than happy to see that you do, I’m glad I can help. But please don’t copy it and use it as your own, be sure to add a reference back to my blog if you publish information you find here. All information here are provided “AS IS” with no guarantees, no warranties, and they confer no rights. If you have any further questions or thoughts about a subject or post I have made, or if you just want to get in touch with me, please drop a comment or contact me by one of the following:

    I just wanted to thank you for the info you’ve posted on your website. I created a similar site for myself and always wonder if anyone looks at it. :-)

    I found your’s looking for Powershell commands to report on mailbox database backups. I see you went through the same pain I have been going through, but you found the -status switch.

    Anyway, thanks!

    Can you tell me…I have an Exchange 2010 Server and had a 3rd Party Cetificate that just expired and created a self-signed one and did not add the smtp in the new one and it shows up in the event log, but email is working just fine…what would be the purpose or need to have the SMTP Certificate?

    thx Mike

      Hi Mike,

      Absolutely, Exchange needs the certificate for SMTP to be able to use TLS to secure the SMTP sessions. It is used for internal Communication between Exchange servers but also when communicating with external servers that support TLS. More information on TLS and Exchange can be found here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998840(v=exchg.141).aspx

      I hope this answers your question, let me know if it doesn’t, thanks for reading!
