I am trying to set up exchange 2010, I want to configure the incoming mail but all the information I can find about says there should be tabs on the middle pane when I select hub transport..

I get none :-(

anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong?

(I am trying to set up the incoming addresses at the moment looking for "Accepted Domains" in case I should be doing something differently)

Make sure your account is in the Organization Management group in AD...

In my case, for my client, this solved our problem and should be considered the answer! – Gabriel Graves May 4 '13 at 16:58

EMC (and EMS) shows you different tools based on your access level; if you don't have proper access rights, you are not only not able to perform a given task, but you don't even have UI access to it; you should check you have proper administrative rights on Exchange (not only on the domain, being Domain/Enterprise Administrator will be of no help if you are not in the proper Exchange administrative group).

If this is not the case, then you could have a corrupted installation of the Exchane Management Tools, or they could be at the wrong service pack level; try reinstalling them, or using them from another computer.

I will try re-installing the management tools. I was hoping they had been replaced with something else or something but it sounds like its just broken.. – gordatron Jul 19 '11 at 15:40
