    Eradicating EV stubs from Exchange mailboxes isn't easy 2

    I was astonished at the reaction I received from last week’s post about the new Office 365 Import service and how Microsoft had Symantec Enterprise Vault (EV) squarely in its cross-hairs in a crusade to repatriate information back from EV to Exchange. Many people contacted me to seek more details of the service (it’s available now to Office 365 tenants) or with questions. It is clear that a lot of data has been exported from Exchange over the years. And I mean a lot!...More

    Do you need Advanced Threat Protection? Maybe some new malware is en route to your mailbox!

    If you use Exchange Online, either as the standalone plan or as part of an Office 365 commercial plan, any inbound email sent to your tenant is cleansed by going through Exchange Online Protection (EOP), essentially a massive barrier of servers dedicated to intercepting and removing bad stuff from email before unwanted rubbish reaches inboxes. EOP is also available as a hosted email filtering service that can be used by on-premises servers....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

    The various flavors of Outlook

    Much excitement was generated on March 16 when Microsoft announced the general availability of a preview version of Outlook 2016 (desktop) along with a rake of other Office 2016 announcements. The new version of Outlook won't be formally released until much later this year, probably in conjunction with the release of Exchange 2016,  Among the improvements included in Outlook 2016 as mentioned in the announcement were:...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

    What Microsoft needs to do to upgrade the Outlook apps

    The recent discussions provoked by Microsoft’s decision to release a rebranded version of the Acompli client acquired in late 2014 as the Outlook for iOS and Outlook for Android apps were interesting in many ways. I’m sure that Javier Soltero and his ex-Acompi colleagues received a taste of what it means to be responsible for a Microsoft client that serves such a large installed base of enterprise customers....More

    Do the ex-Acompli now Outlook clients really compromise security or is everyone overreacting? 12

    I fear that some of the noble denizens of the Internet quite lost the run of themselves following Microsoft’s January 29 announcement that their Acompli acquisition had received the full benefit of a corporate rebranding and had emerged to be available as Outlook for iOS and Outlook for Android (limited to some phones and tablets)....More

Let me bring the on-premises crowd up to date....More
