    Office 365 Planner FAQ

    Many questions followed my article introducing Office 365 Planner, so clearly I didn’t do such a good job explaining the topic. Here’s an attempt to do so in a question and answer format. If you have other questions, try asking them in the Planner group in Microsoft’s Office 365 Network. What is Office 365 Planner?...More

    Yammer for all (whether you want it or not)

    The news that Microsoft has decided to activate Yammer for “every eligible Office 365 tenant” warmed the very cockles of my heart, even if some doom-and-gloom was introduced by the notion that this might be a tactic to stop customers looking at Facebook at Work. I think not in this instance....More

    Microsoft fails to communicate over Exchange Online IMAP4 outage 2

    A curious incident occurred in Exchange Online over the last week or so when some European users who connect to their mailboxes using the venerable IMAP4 protocol reported that they couldn’t receive new mail. There’s nothing particularly notable about a glitch occurring with a messaging protocol. After all, Exchange supports quite a few (MAPI, Exchange Web Services, ActiveSync, IMAP4, POP3, and SMTP) in order to be able to provide as wide a client choice as possible....More

    On December 15, Microsoft announced that the next generation synchronization client for OneDrive for Business is now generally available. A preview of the new software had been available since September. Despite many requests, I never managed to get hold of the preview so I was quite happy when Microsoft released the new client, which is available for both Windows and Mac OS X 10.9 (and above)....More

    Online protection the only way to go 3

    Microsoft’s January 14 post “Leading the way in the fight against dangerous email threats” to the Office blog recalled the discussion that ensued in September 2012 after they announced the cancelation of their on-premises email protection products, including the Threat Management Gateway (TMG) and Forefront Protection for Exchange (FPE)....More

    Why public folder compliance gets no respect

    Microsoft’s July 2 announcement of a “compliance toolset” for public folders appears to have fallen flat in terms of the excitement generated in the Exchange community.  At least, I never hear anyone talking about it or receive any questions about why Microsoft’s compliance toolset for the cockroaches of Exchange is so limited....More

    The woes of Exchange mailbox auditing

    Mailbox auditing seems like a pretty good thing to have in an email product, if only to answer the eternal question of who deleted a particular message from the mailbox. Exchange 2010 was the first version of the product to include mailbox auditing. The sad news is that not much has changed since in either the cloud or on-premises product, which is both worrying and not particularly good when considered in the context of Microsoft’s overall compliance strategy....More
