How to Change the ActiveSync Account on Windows Mobile 6 Devices

Hi,

Amongst all the fun things I have been doing recently, I decided it would be a good time to migrate my Wife’s email account over to my Exchange 2007 host Intermedia.net

Everything went very smoothly until I came to re-syncing her Windows Mobile 6 device.

For a while I couldn’t work out how to change the username and domain. I could change the server address but nothing else.

Well, it turns out that I needed to first delete the existing Exchange partnership and then create a new one.

?

To delete the partnership on the device, open ActiveSync on the device.

Go to Menu -> Options.

Select the “Microsoft Exchange” partnership

Click the “Delete” button.

?

This should delete the partnership on the device. Once the partnership is deleted, you can then go to Menu->Configure Server
and set up a new partnership.

?

Hope this saves someone a few wasted minutes!

Cheers

Disconnected Mailboxes in Exchange 2007 PowerShell

Hi,

Having had an error using the GUI to view disconnected mailboxes in Exchange 2007 and decided to look into using the command line.

To display mailboxes that are disconnected use the following command.

Get-MailboxStatistics -Server | where { $_.DisconnectDate -ne $null } | select DisplayName,DisconnectDate

Replace with the name of your mailbox server.

This gives a list of the disconnected mailboxes.

To reconnect you use the command below

Connect-mailbox ?database ?Identity ?User

EDIT:

Having posted this a reader replied and let me know that he had spoken to PSS about a similar issue that was stopping him accessing the disconncted mailboxes area in the GUI. The error was similar to:

“contraint error” like :” unable to activate contraints

It appears that this is a bug and that there will be a fix. When I find out more I will post it.
