    ESEUTIL is now the evil utility

    ESEUTIL has a long history with Exchange. A command-line utility that has clung magnificently to the same interface since Exchange 4.0, ESEUTIL used to be one of the go-to utilities for any administrator. But that was in the bad old days of single databases, flaky disks, and wholesale software bugs, a toxic combination that endowed ESEUTIL with almost magical powers of restoring any Exchange server to rude good health if applied with care....More

    Microsoft claims 35% of Exchange installed base is now on Office 365 1

    In an attempt to catch up with everything that happened at the recent Microsoft Ignite conference, I listened to the Channel 9 recording of a session called “Extending Microsoft Office 365 Visibility, Security and Compliance: Office 365 Management APIs”, which featured the interesting claim that 35% of the Exchange installed base is now on Office 365 (see graphic). The same presentation also stated that some 1.2 million customers now use Office 365....More

    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

    News about Data Loss Prevention for SharePoint Online revealed at Microsoft Ignite

    Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is a feature that was first introduced in Exchange (2013 and Online) and is now in SharePoint Online (but not the on-premises version). I covered the initial news on this topic last year and took the chance at the Microsoft Ignite conference to find out had the functionality predicted then been realized in production....More

    Treat the new Office 365 150 MB maximum message size with caution

    I hope that the excitement that I heard voiced by many when Microsoft announced that Office 365 now allows the transmission of messages of up to 150 MB has quietened down. Sure, it’s nice to be able to send the manuscript of an entire book via email (something I did the other day with some glee), but some intractable problems exist that must be overcome before the new limit is really practicable....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

    Enterprise Collaboration sessions selected for IT/DEV Connections 2015

    It was gratifying to receive so many session submissions for IT/DEV Connections 2015, which takes place at the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas on September 14-17. As you might know, this year the conference is organized around a set of tracks that we think match the interests of attendees, with "Enterprise Collaboration" being the track of most interest to those looking for Exchange and Office 365 content....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
