    Highlights from Day 2 of the Exchange Connections Conference

    Day 2 of Exchange Connections dawned bright and sunny, as you’d expect in Las Vegas. Not that we see much of the sunlight when buried deep in the bowels of the Mandalay Bay conference center paying attention to sessions, or just drinking some pretty awful coffee while hanging out with different people. In any case, here’s what I got from today’s sessions:...More

    Hot points from Exchange Connections 5

    It’s been very satisfying to see such a great bunch of people turn up for Exchange Connections, which truly lived up to its ambition of being the best independent conference covering Exchange. It's not only the speakers, of course, because they are always great (I have to say that otherwise they’ll never submit a session proposal again). The important thing is that lots of attendees are here asking some great questions about Exchange 2010, Exchange 2013, Office 365, hybrid connectivity, ActiveSync, and Lync interoperability....More

    Release of Apple iPhone 5s and iOS 7 gives new headaches to Exchange administrators 1

    Apple’s release of their new iPhone 5c and 5s models and the accompanying update of the iOS operating system to version 7.0 (or whatever point build it is now at) seems to have delighted consumers. Certainly the normal queues appeared at Apple stores in the rush to get one of the new devices and the iTunes servers were overwhelmed with the demand to download iOS 7. All good stuff, even if the notion of a gold iPhone seems strange to someone like me, who isn’t particularly fashion-conscious....More

    Fun all round with the UC Architects at Exchange Connections 1

    Continuing my posts previewing sessions at next week's Exchange Connections conference, I think that the live UC Architects broadcast will be a highlight of the event (at Wednesday, 2:30pm). Anyone who has listened to one of their regular podcasts will know that the UC Architects are not slow at coming forward....More

    Exchange and cloud application platforms - soon to be commonplace?

    The news that Microsoft has released a security bulletin that affects Exchange 2007 (SP3), Exchange 2010 (SP2 and SP3), and Exchange 2013 is interesting, if only because it is the first time since the new servicing model for Exchange 2013 came into force. As you’ll recall, one big plus cited for the new model is the clear isolation between cumulative updates and security fixes. In other words, you can apply a security fix without having to first upgrade your server....More

    Rapid evolution in Exchange compliance features causes some problems 4

    Comparing results from different calculators is a fool's game (and Exchange 2010 SP3 RU1) 2

      I guess that it was inevitable that people would rush to use the Exchange 2013 server role requirements calculator and compare its output to the results generated by the Exchange 2010 mailbox server calculator. And of course, the results do not match. Not by a long way, because Exchange 2013 uses a different architecture than its predecessor and because server hardware has different capabilities than it had when Exchange 2010 was designed....More

    Preserving mailboxes when employees leave

    If employees leave your company, you should think about preserving the content held in their mailboxes. You might just be glad that you do this if your company becomes liable to legal discovery. Then again, it can be argued that deleting mailboxes immediately solves the problem... until you're forced to restore the mailboxes from backup by the legal department. So here's a discussion about some practical steps to help with the problem of what to do with those pesky mailboxes....More

    Exchange 2010 Discovery Searches: What about users who leave?

    As you probably know, Microsoft has made quite a big fuss about the compliance features that they have incorporated into Exchange 2010 and extended further in Exchange 2013. It’s fair to acknowledge the progress that has been made in this area through the addition of features such as archive mailboxes, retention policies and tags, litigation and retention hold, enhancements to the “dumpster”, and the provision of a discovery search capability....More
