Recently it was necessary to change  the “From” display name of the sending notifications. This notifications appear e.g. when your mailbox size hits the quota or you get an internal NDR. It’s not possible to edit the sender email address in EMC or EMS but you can change the Display Name of this notification sender by using ADSIEdit.

  • Open ADSIEDIT – Configuration
  • Open the following path:
    Services -> Microsoft Exchange -> “Your Exchange Organization” -> Transport Settings
  • Right click properties on CN=MicrosoftExchange329e71ec88ae4615bbc36ab6ce41109e

In the properties navigate to “displayName” and edit the default value named “Microsoft Outlook” to the display name you want to have.

Click OK and close ADSI Edit.

That’s it.




With this PowerShell command you get an overview of database sizes, last full backups and active servers.

(get-mailboxdatabase -status) | foreach-object {write-host $_Server $_.Name $_.lastfullbackup $_.databasesize}



If you want to discover where a specific user has Full Access you can use this PowerShell command:

Get-Mailbox | Get-MailboxPermission -User | where { ($_.AccessRights -eq “FullAccess”) }



For some reasons it is necessarry to enable circular logging on your Exchange databases.
This reasons could be moving many or large mailboxes or perhaps a broken backup which causes the logfile partition to be stuffed with logfiles.

However, you can enable circular logging via Exchange Management Console (EMC) or via PowerShell. With PowerShell you can set it for all databases at once.

Get-Mailboxdatabase | Set-MailboxDatabase -CircularloggingEnabled:$true

I would strongly suggest enabling circular logging should be the last option. After you solve your issue you should immidiately disable circular logging.

Get-Mailboxdatabase | Set-MailboxDatabase -CircularloggingEnabled:$false
