    Good week for Exchange on-premises customers as Microsoft makes some important updates

    Some pretty good things happened in the world of Exchange over the last week that might have passed you by because they didn’t receive much publicity - or maybe because we're all punch drunk from the blizzard of new functionality that has appeared in Office 365. Let me bring the on-premises crowd up to date....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

    Exchange 2010 SP3 RU8 withdrawn due to bug in MAPI RPC layer (V2 now available)

    Microsoft released Exchange 2010 SP3 RU8 yesterday alongside Exchange 2013 CU7 and a slew of other updates, including MS14-075 security fixes. Today they have pulled the Exchange 2010 SP3 RU8 update because of a regressive bug discovered in the RPC client access layer....More

    Acompli acquisition transforms Microsoft mobile email client strategy

    One thing you can always be sure about when working with technology is that change is constant. When I wrote about Microsoft’s evolving mobile strategy for Exchange last May, it seemed pretty clear that Outlook Web App (OWA) was the driving factor to deliver user functionality....More

    OWA updates in Office 365 help with Chrome showModalDialog issue but no joy for on-premises versions 2

    By now you’re probably well aware that Google deprecated the showModalDialog method in version 37 of their Chrome browser to cause some problems for Outlook Web App (OWA) and Exchange Administration Center (EAC), both of which use the method to display modal screens to collect user input. Well, there’s good news and bad news on that topic....More

    Appointments reappear in OWA calendar as one Chrome bug is fixed

    Users of Outlook Web App (OWA) who like to use the Chrome browser have run into choppy waters recently. As it turns out, three distinct problems are in play. The first is Google’s deprecation of the showModalDialog method in Chrome version 38 that stops OWA (and the Exchange Administration Center) displaying modal dialogs to input data when objects are edited. The same problem afflicts Microsoft CRM....More

    Google Chrome and Office Servers - the continuing saga

    Following along from the showModalDialog fiasco affecting Outlook Web App (OWA) and the Exchange Administration Center (EAC) in Exchange 2013, Exchange 2010, and Office 365 as well as Microsoft CRM, another example of how Google Chrome doesn’t quite play nice with Microsoft Office applications is in the inability of the 64-bit version of the browser to handle Lync meeting URLs correctly....More

    Chrome problem for Exchange due to Google haste and Microsoft inattention

    I’ve been pondering how Google managed to do evil to OWA and EAC (and Microsoft CRM and other enterprise applications) when it removed the showModalDialog method from Chrome Version 37. As reported in KB3001145, the issue affects different elements of OWA and EAC in both the on-premises and cloud versions of Exchange. At this point, apart from using a different browser, there is no workaround except a registry hack that puts off the day of doom until May 2015....More
