    Online protection the only way to go 3

    Microsoft’s January 14 post “Leading the way in the fight against dangerous email threats” to the Office blog recalled the discussion that ensued in September 2012 after they announced the cancelation of their on-premises email protection products, including the Threat Management Gateway (TMG) and Forefront Protection for Exchange (FPE)....More

    The woes of Exchange mailbox auditing

    Mailbox auditing seems like a pretty good thing to have in an email product, if only to answer the eternal question of who deleted a particular message from the mailbox. Exchange 2010 was the first version of the product to include mailbox auditing. The sad news is that not much has changed since in either the cloud or on-premises product, which is both worrying and not particularly good when considered in the context of Microsoft’s overall compliance strategy....More

    Active Directory and Exchange - too tight for a rename 2

    1999 seems such a long time ago now, but that's when many of us first faced the need to deploy Active Directory (AD). For many companies, the need arose because Microsoft replaced the Exchange Directory Store (DS), used for Exchange 4.0 to 5.5, with Active Directory in Exchange 2000. The DS was very much like AD....More

    Why mailbox anchoring matters

    Tuesday’s EHLO post by Rob Whaley, a well-known Exchange guy who works on beta releases of the on-premises and cloud products, is all about how a remote PowerShell session connects to a mailbox on an Exchange server. Or, to use the term now popularized by the post, “mailbox anchoring”. I confess ignorance on the point as I was heretofore unaware of such a nautical reference in the context of Exchange....More

    Two years on: revisiting a conversation with Exchange development chief Perry Clarke

    Two years ago, I spoke with Perry Clarke, the development chief for Exchange (both on-premises and cloud) to discuss the current state of Exchange and how its technology was likely to evolve. We know how the influence of the cloud has affected the way that product development occurs and how quickly things now happen. I thought it would be interesting to look back on how Exchange has evolved in the period....More
