    What wasn't revealed in the next chapter of Office on Windows

    Microsoft certainly did an impressive job of describing their plans for Windows 10 on January 21 and then followed up on January 22 with details of what’s going to happen with Office 2016 in a post titled “The next chapter of Office on Windows”. Cue a feeding frenzy of news reports, most of which did nothing more than faithfully replicate the words of Julia White....More

    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

    What's changed in the fifteen years since Exchange 2000 shipped

    Browsing my Exchange 2000 book recently (don't ask why I should be doing such a thing!), I found a quote by Scott McNealy, then CEO of Sun Microsystems. The quote is from an article in the Wall Street Journal (September 2, 1999):...More

    Changing circumstances make it difficult to measure adoption rate for Exchange 2013

    A journalist asked me whether companies are deploying Exchange 2013 faster or slower than previous versions and what reasons are driving its adoption. I thought about the question a little and then replied that it is impossible to compare the adoption rate of one Exchange version against another because of the different circumstances that surrounded each release. Here’s what I meant....More

    Does anyone care that the Exchange 2013 Edge Transport server role came back? 6

    When Microsoft shipped Exchange 2013 RTM, they forgot to include the Edge Transport (ET) role in the set available for deployment. Or maybe they omitted ET on purpose. In any case, customers were instructed that they could continue to use the Exchange 2010 version of ET and all would be well. And it was. That is, if you ignore the complaints....More
