    New engineering philosophies drive innovation within Office 365

    Office 365 means different things to different people. Someone who moved from Exchange on-premises probably takes an email-centric view of Office 365 while those who now use it for SharePoint Online see Office 365 through a different lens. This is natural because each of us views the world from our own personal perspective....More

    News about Data Loss Prevention for SharePoint Online revealed at Microsoft Ignite

    Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is a feature that was first introduced in Exchange (2013 and Online) and is now in SharePoint Online (but not the on-premises version). I covered the initial news on this topic last year and took the chance at the Microsoft Ignite conference to find out had the functionality predicted then been realized in production....More

    Enterprise Collaboration sessions selected for IT/DEV Connections 2015

    It was gratifying to receive so many session submissions for IT/DEV Connections 2015, which takes place at the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas on September 14-17. As you might know, this year the conference is organized around a set of tracks that we think match the interests of attendees, with "Enterprise Collaboration" being the track of most interest to those looking for Exchange and Office 365 content....More

    RBAC Manager: making Exchange role-based access control more understandable 2

    Until Exchange 2010, control over Exchange objects was exercised by good 'ol Windows Access Control Lists (ACLs) and Access Control Entries (ACEs). The upside of this implementation was that it was shared with Windows so if you understood how ACLs worked for Windows, you had a fair chance of understanding it for Exchange. The downside is that ACLs are a crude control mechanism that works well when configuring user access to objects such as files but is less satisfactory in the world of Exchange....More

    Why PSTs should never show their faces on a file share 5

    I don’t mind it being known that I hate PSTs. Not because I buy into the “everything must be in the Store” line, even though this is an excellent approach to take for any company seeking to implement compliance standards within the organization. My opposition is more fundamental and is all to do with the many technical problems exhibited by PSTs....More

    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
