  1. When i ran this tool on our exchange server 2010 it says not valid exchange server is detected. Our server was installed by our hoster. How can i check if they did their work properly?

  2. Hein,
    hire me and i will tell you if your exchange environment is set up correctly 🙂 . But you can check best practice analyzer on exchange to do a quick check and see if you have anything missing/miss configured for a start.

    I would like to thank you guys who worked on this utility, you guys have no idea how many times this tool saved me — so Thank you!
