    Why PowerShell is often not the best tool for reporting Exchange data

    After I discussed the topic of reporting Office 365 in January, some folks contacted me to ask whether it was really necessary to go to the bother and expense of buying an additional software package to generate reports about Office 365 data....More

    Worried about security and privacy in Outlook for iOS and Android? Here's your chance to debate the issues

    Last Friday I posted an article outlining the reasons why I thought some of the concerns expressed about some security and functionality weaknesses in the rebranded Outlook for iOS and Android apps (late Acompli) were an overreaction. Cue a heap of tweets and other feedback directed my way, some of which questioned whether I was serious. Well, I was. I still think that some of the opinions posted on the Internet are way over the top....More

    The underappreciated Exchange Replay Lag Manager

    Much like the members of the People’s Front of Judea struggled to find good with the Romans in Monty Python’s “Life of Brian”, those running on-premises Exchange servers often wonder whether Microsoft’s whole-hearted embracement of the cloud has benefited them. But it has, even if the rapid appearance of new features inside Office 365 sometimes makes the on-premises crowd think they are the forgotten few....More

    What wasn't revealed in the next chapter of Office on Windows

    Microsoft certainly did an impressive job of describing their plans for Windows 10 on January 21 and then followed up on January 22 with details of what’s going to happen with Office 2016 in a post titled “The next chapter of Office on Windows”. Cue a feeding frenzy of news reports, most of which did nothing more than faithfully replicate the words of Julia White....More

    Compliance iceberg awaits Facebook @Work

    The news that Facebook is trialling a work-oriented implementation of their eponymous social network might seem like bad news for Microsoft, who paid a lot of money in 2012 to acquire Yammer and has been busy since to integrate Yammer into its Office framework....More

    Exchange administrative tools and Active Directory: Not as close as they once were

    When Exchange first embraced Active Directory in Exchange, Microsoft integrated the functionality to allow administrators to work with the Exchange-specific attributes that are used when objects are mail-enabled. When the Exchange management tools are installed on a server, three tabs are added to AD Users and Computers to display attributes grouped under Exchange General, Exchange Advanced, and Exchange Features. The integration eased the movement from the older Exchange 5.5 administration model and hid some of the perceived complexity of dealing with the brand-new Active Directory....More

    The World of Exchange in 2014 and What's Likely in 2015 1

    At the end of last year I made some predictions for the world of Exchange in 2014. As is the way of the world, some I got right and some I got wrong. But everyone loves to argue as to what will happen with technology and it’s time that I made some forecasts for 2015. Before that, here’s a summary of the year gone by in the form of some...More

    What's changed in the fifteen years since Exchange 2000 shipped

    Browsing my Exchange 2000 book recently (don't ask why I should be doing such a thing!), I found a quote by Scott McNealy, then CEO of Sun Microsystems. The quote is from an article in the Wall Street Journal (September 2, 1999):...More

    Changing circumstances make it difficult to measure adoption rate for Exchange 2013

    A journalist asked me whether companies are deploying Exchange 2013 faster or slower than previous versions and what reasons are driving its adoption. I thought about the question a little and then replied that it is impossible to compare the adoption rate of one Exchange version against another because of the different circumstances that surrounded each release. Here’s what I meant....More

    Exchange Online increases eDiscovery mailbox limit and boasts better performance too

    The Office 365 Roadmap is a great place to look for information about what’s coming up in the cloud-based versions of the Office servers and potentially new versions of their on-premises counterparts. Browsing the “Rolling Out” section recently, I noticed that an entry saying “Exchange eDiscovery mailbox search limit increased to 10K mailboxes,” which prompted some investigation....More
