This article lists the article numbers for Exchange Server version 5.5 Internet Mail Service bugs that have been fixed since Exchange Server 5.5 Service Pack 3 was released. For information about how to obtain the fixes listed in this article, click the article number next to the title of the article about that issue to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

NOTE: Exchange Server fixes for a particular component are cumulative and contain all of the previous fixes for that component. Fixes with a particular version number contain all of the fixes that have an earlier version number.


Internet Mail Service fixes include the following files:

File name Current version
Imcmsg.dll 5.5.2652.53
Msexcimc.exe 5.5.2652.78

NOTE: The fix documented in Q243822, "XCON: Internet Mail Service Message Size Restriction Is Not Correctly Displayed," requires an updated Imcadmin.dll file in addition to the updated Msexcimc.exe file. This updated Imcadmin.dll file is contained in new versions of the Administrator program, not the Internet Mail Service. Therefore, to fully resolve the problem documented in Q243822, you must obtain a new version of the Administrator program in addition to obtaining a new version of the Internet Mail Service.
