    Removing on-hold items from Exchange and SharePoint: unsupported but doable

    The usual reason for placing a mailbox on hold is to retain its contents for some legal or regulatory purpose. However, the situation might arise when it is necessary to remove some items from a mailbox that is on hold. For instance, someone might successfully sue your company to demand the removal of all information pertaining to them or some particular activity. If ordered to permanently remove the material, there is little you can do but comply....More

    VMware tells Microsoft that they don't know anything about Exchange 2013 performance 6

    I always like it when technologists have a fight. Not a proper fight you understand, one with bare fists and the like, but a good old-fashioning mauling with words....More

    Managing user mailboxes to specific quotas with retention policies

    A little while ago, some of the Exchange MVPs were discussing a company’s desire to have size-based archiving rather than the age-based archiving that retention policies are designed to accomplish. As you might recall, you can define a retention policy that includes tags that use the “Move to Archive” action to instruct the Managed Folder Assistant (MFA) to move items that come under the scope of the policy to an archive mailbox after the retention period elapses....More

    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).

    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
