    Encrypting email in transit makes a heap of sense

    Mainstream media such as the Washington Post (which, as someone living in Ireland, is high on my daily must-read list) got quite excited about Google’s recent announcement that they will name and shame email domains who don’t encrypt inbound and outbound SMTP connections via Transport Layer Security (TLS)....More

    The case of the apparent log roll

    “Log roll” is a technique used in Exchange 2007 CCR/SCR clusters to force replication between cluster members at times when not much activity is occurring on the servers. When servers are busy, log replication happens regularly as transactions fill the 1MB logs and force Exchange to close off the active log, create new logs, and replicate. It’s a virtuous cycle....More

    Technology is so much easier when everyone shares their knowledge 6

    I note that the avuncular Steve Goodman has posted an updated version of his well-respected Exchange environmental report, refreshed to deal with Exchange 2013 SP1.

    What question would you ask Microsoft's Exchange development supremo? 20

    I need your help. Next Friday (December 13), I shall interview Perry Clarke, Microsoft CVP for Exchange development (in other words, Perry is responsible for every bit of code written for Exchange, both on-premises and cloud). I have known Perry for many years and have quite a few questions to ask him about the future direction of Exchange and other issues, but I thought that I’d open it up to the Exchange community and invite you to submit questions that you’d like me to ask Perry....More

    Kitkat causes ActiveSync headaches for Android users 1

    As you probably realize, many of the mobile device vendors who create tablets and smartphones running the Android operating system license it to connect to Exchange using ActiveSync (EAS).  And despite the differing implementations of email clients on the various Android devices, most of the time connections are easy and reliable, which is exactly how you’d like them to be....More
