    Paul, I am having really really hard time getting to run in task scheduler. I followed your previous version guide and did what users have stated in the comments and nothing works for me. Can you please advice.
    Thank you

    • Think of Task Scheduler as basically a cmd.exe session. If you can get a command line to run in cmd.exe, it will be easy to put it into Task Scheduler. So start in cmd.exe until you get the full command syntax correct.

      Otherwise you’ll need to be clearer about what is not working for you.

    Hey Paul, Thank you for the script.

    I have Exchange 2010 and 2016 currently running. Mail Flow Tests Fail on Exchange 2016 side but not 2010. I open up EMS and run “Test-MailFlow EXCH2016” and the mailflowresult comes back as Success. Any Suggestions?
