Remote Administration of Exchange 5.5

By t_bouldin ·
Our company is looking into Exchange services for our customers. Specifically, is it possible for, let's say, the owner of a company to connect to our exchange server and add/delete/modify accounts in his recipients container only? I have looked in various places for a script or a tool or anything, no luck! Please help with any information.

TIA,
Tanya Bouldin

The Exchange Administrator tool will work remotely and you can set permissions on the Recipients folder to restrict who can make changes to the contents of that folder (just highlight Recipients, click File-Properties and then Permissions tab).

However, it sounds like you want to be an ASP (Application Service Provider) and I'm not sure that Exchange will support multiple Recipient containers within a site. It seems to me you would have to run an instance of Exchange for each company that would be using Exchange services unless you would want to lump all the companies together in one Recipients container and then separate them by groups or record by record.

In addition to previous answer the MS Exchange allows to create multiple Recepient container. To do that select File/New other/Recepient container in Exchange administrator programm and assign Permission Admin role to apropriate person.

Tanya it is great to see that you are looking to leverage Exchange as a value added resource for your customers. Exchange 5.5 has many features that will allow you to provide e-mail and collaboration to your clients however I believe that you shouldlook heavily into the advantage that Exchange 2000 can provide. You have much greater control of "storage group". You can also build "administrative groups" which will allow the owner of the company to connect to your Exchange Server and only modifyaccounts in his administrative group. If this will be a revenue generator for your company I would also recommend looking into developing a we enabled administration piece for your customers. No product is offered as of yet to allow this but I believe with the advent of Exchange 2000 that we will se some shortly. If I can help out in any other way feel free to drop me a line.
