    Best practice evolves as knowledge transfers from Office 365 to on-premises Exchange

     If you attended the recent Microsoft Exchange Conference (MEC) in Austin with a focus on some of the high availability sessions, you might have come away with two clear changes to what has been well-accepted best practice up to now. Of course, best practice is never static as it flexes and evolves in light of experience and changes in software and hardware, so it’s hardly surprising that the first Exchange conference in eighteen months might challenge some established ideas....More

    Being open about Office 365 operations drives credibility of "the service" 2

    I have used Office 365 since its launch in June 2011 and followed its development closely since. After two initial hiccups in August and September 2011, both seemingly rooted in manual intervention, the service has delivered an impressive record of reliability and availability. Despite this, some in the industry are still wary of moving utility applications such as email to the cloud....More

    Understanding the messages from the Exchange Conference keynote

    The keynote at the Microsoft Exchange Conference (MEC) in Austin was a curious mixture of humor (the Greg Taylor and David Espinoza video), failed demos, low energy levels at times, announcements that were posted elsewhere before the keynote got to make them, and discussions of new technology....More

    Wanted: Great speakers for Exchange Connections 2014

    If you’re attending the Microsoft Exchange Conference (MEC) in Austin this week, I’m sure that you are up to your neck in Exchange, Lync, and Office 365 content and the thought of presenting at another conference next September couldn’t be further from your mind....More

    Exchange message tracing extended to 90 days in Office 365 - what about the on-premises version?

    Listening to a call about the recent decision by Microsoft to support message tracing in Office 365 for up to 90 days, my mind wandered (as it does). Not, I hasten to add, because of any inadequacy on the part of the presenter, but more to consider the nature of message tracing and why we need it at all....More

    Contemplating the RSS feed for Exchange Knowledge Base articles 2

    The folks responsible for maintaining the RSS feed describing the latest Microsoft Knowledge Base articles for Exchange 2013 (or the equivalent feed for Exchange 2010) must share the high availability principle of multiple copies delivering the best service. What’s for sure is that they very much like publishing at least two copies of every article, if not three or four....More

    Apple releases iOS 7.1 - Exchange administrators applaud (or not)

    The news that Apple has released iOS 7.1 creates an opportunity for Exchange administrators to get ahead of any potential problems in the interaction between the iOS mail app and Exchange ActiveSync (EAS). The rule is simple – test the new release before your users upgrade their iPhones and iPads and check that everything works, including the usually problematic areas of calendaring....More

    Four synchronization issues between Outlook and site mailboxes

    Site mailboxes provide a new collaborative interface between SharePoint 2013 and Exchange 2013 that’s intended to exploit the different strengths of the two products – document management for SharePoint and email for Exchange. Outlook 2013 Professional Plus is the only client that can currently access site mailboxes....More

    Exchange's most annoying and confusing error message 1

    Coding error messages and making sure that the errors are generated in the right place and at the right time is probably well down the list of “things I want to do at work” for software developers. I was never happy to spend time composing error messages and inserting them into code and I can’t imagine that the Exchange developers are too enthusiastic about the task either....More

    The raging debate around the lack of NFS support in Exchange 3

    Based on some of the Twitter traffic that I have received recently, my post “NFS and Exchange – not a good combination” appeared to have hit a nerve with some NFS vendors. People working at Nutanix and EMC used Twitter to tell me how wrong I was in saying that NFS might corrupt Exchange databases....More
