Exchange 2010 - Mailbox Repair Request

Good link with details:

No more ISINTEG. You can run this while online - that enough is reason to upgrade!

Here is the syntax for the mailbox I ran a repair on today.
New-MailboxRepairRequest -mailbox UserName -CorruptionType ProvisionedFolder,SearchFolder,AggregateCounts,Folderview

The link above gives the detailed event ID numbers to search for to see the results.
You need to check the server which has the mailbox database active to see the results, not the machine the cmdlet was run from.

Testing TCP Ports with Powershell

Send-MailMessage is a great addition with Powershell version 2.0, it greatly reduces the complexity of send a test SMTP message, including allowing attachments.

Just found a good script to allow testing TCP ports.

I was able ot use that script/ example along with
the notes on this page to test access to a proxy.
