Outlook Continuously Asks for User Name and Password in Exchange Environment

Hello Everybody,

I have got through a problem where MS Outlook continuously asks for user name and password to authenticate the user for exchange…

This could be annoying for users and frustrating for the guys who are troubleshooting that, today I made some researches about problem and I got some solutions for it, but all are on the client side, so imagine if you have about 100 clients, you need to go to all of them and apply the fix (if it was the right solution), of course this is not acceptable at all, so I made some more searches about it into the server and I got to the bottom of it…

Before I put my solution, I would like to clear something, which is this solution has came from experiencing the problem with my configuration, so most likely your configuration will be different from mine (maybe you will … Read the rest “Outlook Continuously Asks for User Name and Password in Exchange Environment”

PS: Managing Exchange Users Using Groups

Hello everybody

Last few days  I was having too much troubles with the rain, and the situation was not good at all in Jeddah, I even had to spend 1 night out of home… 🙁 because the water has blocked almost all the roads in the city… actually you can see a bit of what happened from my Facebook profile: http://www.facebook.com/salehram, well, it is in Arabic so you better know some Arabic if you are not Arabic 😛

OK, I almost forgot the main reason of this topic 😀 , it is about managing the Exchange users using the Groups in Active Directory…

There are many ways to manage the users in the Exchange, the easiest at all is using the EMC (Exchange Management Console), and there are many methods to do that, for example you can:

Error when trying to prepare the organization for Exchange 2010 installation (otherWellKnownObjects attribute)

Hi all,

Sorry for going offline for too long, I was having some bad times (happens to all :-) )

I am going to talk today about a problem that I have passed long ago, but did not expect to encounter again, it is related to the exchange 2010 and active directory…

Now as you all know that Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and previous versions as well, are active directory-integrated, which mean that when ever we install the exchange system into the network, it will be having roots (this how I would like to call it anyway) in the active directory schema, which by itself (the schema) is the blueprints of the whole Windows network…

The above introduction, I had to write it to let you get close to the problem I am going to talk about; it is related to the removing of the exchange server, and more specific way… … Read the rest “Error when trying to prepare the organization for Exchange 2010 installation (otherWellKnownObjects attribute)”

Fixing the problem when users cannot connect to exchange server using ActiveSync to sync their data

I don’t know if you got into this problem or not yet, but YOU WILL! :-D. I had this problem one day and I was unable to setup any mobile device to connect to my Exchange Server ActiveSync setup…

I got this problem and it took me one day to find out what is going on…

The problem is you configure ActiveSync on the Exchange server and you put the certificate on the server and on the firewall (TMG or ISA) then when somebody with a mobile device tries to connect using ActiveSync, he fails, and cannot get to the server, even if you check about the problem you will find everything on Exchange and ISA or TMG is clear and no dust on it!

Well, the problem maybe not in the Exchange or the firewall, there is a big chance that you can solve it from the Active Directory!… Read the rest “Fixing the problem when users cannot connect to exchange server using ActiveSync to sync their data”
