    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

    Forcing Exchange's Admin Center to use a specific language

      Exchange 2010 SP1 introduced the capability of allowing administrators to run the Exchange Control Panel (ECP) without requiring their account to be linked to a mailbox. This is a big deal for many companies who require people to access their email using “normal” or unprivileged accounts and don’t want administrators to use their mailboxes when logged in with elevated permissions....More

    Active Directory schema extensions now a feature of every Exchange update

    Exchange administrators first became aware of the application’s need to extend the Active Directory schema when Exchange 2000 switched from its own directory service to embrace the new enterprise-capable X.500-like service launched with Windows 2000....More

    Office Delve, Exchange mailboxes and even perhaps public folders

    From the perspective of a platform to enable collaboration, public folders are crude and unwieldy. Unsurprisingly, because public folders have received relatively little development since their introduction in Exchange 4.0 in 1996, they really don’t deliver a very good collaboration experience.

    The fallacy of the workstation File Share Witness

    The hoary old theory that you can use a Windows 7/8 workstation to act as the witness server for an Exchange Database Availability Group (DAG) has been doing the rounds.
