    Outlook Apps - a new approach worth considering 1

    A conversation with a Microsoft engineer at the Microsoft Exchange Conference caused me to wonder if Outlook apps are being overlooked by many companies as they seek to extract value from their deployments. Or indeed, to justify an upgrade to the latest generation of Microsoft Office technology....More

    Microsoft Learning insults Exchange professionals with simply awful video 3

    After viewing their latest video, posted on July 14, that announced that the Exchange 2013 certification exams have been updated for Exchange 2013 SP1, I conclude that the people running whatever part of Microsoft Learning (MSL) that is responsible for this production have been exposed to some potent mind-altering material....More

    Inconsistent searches all too commonly seen in Exchange

    The topic of searching mailboxes came up during the second “Experts Unplugged: Support Issues” session at MEC. In a way it had been covered before at the conference because Microsoft had acknowledged that deficiencies exist in this area and that they are busy developing more precise and effective search capabilities. Apparently the new search will appear in Office 365 towards the end of 2014 and in the next major release of Exchange sometime at the end of 2015....More

    Directory flaw led to Exchange Online outage 2

    As we all know, Exchange Online experienced a 7-hour outage that affected North American customers on June 24. The episode followed an outage for Lync Online the previous day....More

    Why running Exchange on Azure is an unattractive proposition

    Well over a year ago, I wrote about the first reports of running Exchange 2013 on Azure and noted that this might represent a future deployment option....More

    Keeping up to date with what's been happening with Set-MailboxDatabase

    No matter how long you work with software, it’s impossible to master every possible detail, especially when you’re talking about a complex product like Exchange 2013. Which brings me to reveal two small, but to me, interesting changes that have occurred recently. I say “recently” because I am not quite sure when Microsoft made the changes, but that hardly matters in a world when frequent updates are expected....More

    Is Microsoft really saying "don't virtualize" Exchange? 4

    Microsoft’s embrace of simplicity in all things to do with Exchange 2013 might have the unexpected side-effect of turning customers away from virtualization. If so, it will reverse a trend that had gathered pace ever since Microsoft first saw the light of the virtual day after Hyper-V appeared....More

    Nothing to fear in MAPI over HTTP 1

    Microsoft’s decision to move away from the time-honoured RPC interprocess connection mechanism and replace it with a new approach where Outlook clients make MAPI calls over HTTP connections in Exchange 2013 SP1 has caused a bit of fuss and bother....More

    Determining Total Cost of Ownership for Your Network Items

    When it comes to software and hardware, businesses don’t always think about the total cost of ownership (TCO). In the IT world, many hidden costs are tough to peg down....More

    OWA for Android debuts but leaves on-premises customers waiting

    The Twittersphere erupted yesterday after Microsoft made a “pre-release” version of the long-awaited Outlook Web App (OWA) for Android available in the Android store....More

    Encrypting email in transit makes a heap of sense

    Mainstream media such as the Washington Post (which, as someone living in Ireland, is high on my daily must-read list) got quite excited about Google’s recent announcement that they will name and shame email domains who don’t encrypt inbound and outbound SMTP connections via Transport Layer Security (TLS)....More

    How flawed firmware can really give your DAG some replication headaches 3

    The IBM service bulletin titled “Affected ServeRAID controllers inadvertently supported hard drive sector size 512e and 4k - IBM Servers” has got to be a masterpiece of how to obscure a support statement. I’m sure it is written by someone who is awfully literate in all aspects of storage but it sure does an excellent job of disguising the issues in a mass of incoherent text....More

    Learning about DLP in SharePoint Online - a most unusual activity for an Exchange person

    The fact that Microsoft has posted 469 recordings on their Channel 9 site from the recent TechEd North America event is a wonderful thing. I don’t particularly care for the scale of TechEd and the chance to go back for a conference so soon after MEC (sessions from that event are also online) seemed like overkill, so I didn’t make the journey to Houston....More

    Exchange 2013 CU5 - the totally unremarkable update (in a good way) 2

    Microsoft has just released Exchange 2013 CU5. It seems like this is the first version that is what you'd expect a cumulative update to be. No new features, just improving the fit and finish of the server, fixing some bugs, and polishing Exchange up slightly. What a relief to have an update that works first time and improves the quality of the product....More
