Exchange 2010 was the first version of the product to include mailbox auditing. The sad news is that not much has changed since in either the cloud or on-premises product, which is both worrying and not particularly good when considered in the context of Microsoft&rsquo;s overall compliance strategy.</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/woes-exchange-mailbox-auditing" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/blog/woes-exchange-mailbox-auditing#comments Exchange Server 2013 Exchange Server 2016 Exchange Server 2010 Office 365 audit events audit events Compliance Center Compliance Center Exchange 2010 Exchange 2010 Exchange 2013 Exchange 2013 Exchange 2016 Exchange 2016 Exchange Online Exchange Online mailbox audit mailbox audit Office 365 Office 365 Protection Center Protection Center Reporting Reporting security Security Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Blog Tony Redmond&#039;s Exchange Unwashed Tue, 12 Jan 2016 13:00:00 +0000 157751 at http://windowsitpro.com Talking with Javier Soltero, the outsider Microsoft tapped to reinvent Outlook across platforms http://windowsitpro.com/outlook/new-outlook-chief-talks-email-clients <div class="field-byline"> Tony Redmond </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p><img alt="" src="/site-files/windowsitpro.com/files/uploads/2015/09/Javier%20Saltero.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px;" /></p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://windowsitpro.com/outlook/new-outlook-chief-talks-email-clients" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://windowsitpro.com/outlook/new-outlook-chief-talks-email-clients#comments Exchange Server 2013 Exchange Server 2016 Office 365 Outlook Acompli Acompli Email email Exchange Exchange Javier Soltero Javier Soltero mobile client mobile client Office 365 Office 365 Outlook Outlook Outlook 2016 Outlook 2016 Outlook Web App Outlook Web App OWA OWA Windows 10 Mobile Windows 10 Mobile Wed, 06 Jan 2016 15:00:00 +0000 156961 at http://windowsitpro.com Predicting the world of Exchange in 2016 http://windowsitpro.com/blog/exchange-office365-predictions-2016 <div class="node-body blog-body"><p>Last week I looked back on <a href="http://www.linkedin.com/redir/redirect?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwindowsitpro%2Ecom%2Fblog%2Flooking-back-world-exchange-2015" target="_blank">what happened in the world of on-premises and cloud Exchange during 2015</a>.
