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.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/tony-redmonds-exchange-unwashed-0">Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/blog/rbac-manager-exchange-role-based-access-control" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/rbac-manager-exchange-role-based-access-control#comments Exchange Server 2013 Exchange Server 2010 Office 365 ACE ACE ACL ACL Codeplex Codeplex Exchange 2010 Exchange 2010 Exchange 2013 Exchange 2013 Exchange Online Exchange Online Office 365 Office 365 RBAC RBAC RBACManager RBACManager Role Based Access Control Role Based Access Control Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Blog Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Tue, 24 Mar 2015 12:00:00 +0000 132291 at http://windowsitpro.com The various flavors of Outlook http://windowsitpro.com/blog/various-flavors-outlook <div class="node-body blog-body"><p>Much excitement was generated on March 16 when Microsoft announced the <a href="http://blogs.office.com/2015/03/16/announcing-the-office-2016-it-pro-and-developer-preview/" target="_blank">general availability of a preview version of Outlook 2016</a> (desktop) along with a rake of other Office 2016 announcements.
