MEC has been completely shelved. It is no more. It has ceased to be (again). I think it's a huge pity but that's where we are... Now it's up to Microsoft to show that they can deliver the uber-...

Respectfully, I don't think the "Dummies" series of books are intended for the kind of people who need to take certification examinations. See http://www.expta.com/2014/07/an-open-letter-to-...

With Outlook 2013, which is what I use now, I click on the ... in the bottom bar (at the end of Mail Calendar People etc) to reveal a menu that includes "Folders" - clicking on Folders reveals all...

I think it was a 7 hour outage rather than 9 and Microsoft knows exactly what happened. All described in http://windowsitpro.com/blog/directory-flaw-led-exchange-online-outage

To be clear, I have no problems with a decision to virtualize an application, provided that the decision is taken with sufficient reason to back it up. And I have no problem with a deployment of...

Hi Matt, I don't think you were unlucky. Many people in the industry were smitten by the notion that you could virtualize everything and gain lots of advantages. This was a valid assertion in some...

OWA for Android is now available. See http://blogs.office.com/2014/06/11/owa-for-android-now-available-on-select-devices/ for details. The important things are that you have to run a KitKat (4.4)...

@PNewell, what a tale of woe you tell! It's a great story though because it underlines the need for administrators to test every aspect of their hardware before putting it into production. And...

Thursday, June 5, 2014 - 3:43pm

Jeff is absolutely right. Microsoft announced OWA for Android at MEC on March 30 and set an expectation that the release of the code was imminent. Two months later and it still hasn't appeared. I...

Some might indeed say that. I think it's somewhat true because email has to be examined to make Clutter effective. The question is what use is made of the resulting data. In this case, it seems...

Yes, they have included KB2958434 in CU5. However, this is not strictly a "fix." Instead, it is a change in behavior that is designed to make the problem much less noticeable in the real world.

Wednesday, May 28, 2014 - 9:24am

Not that I know of.

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 - 2:57pm

Yep, it's so much better when a feature is delivered and it is fully debugged, automated as much as possible, tweaked to be as functional as possible, and solves a real business problem. My hope...

Tuesday, May 13, 2014 - 5:40am

Au contraire, OWA can operate as a fully synchronized client because it includes offline access. You're right that there are some places where current EAS client implementations are better done...

I agree that the new and useful features (like the DAG) are more obvious in Exchange 2010. But software has an invidious habit of using more resources over time and Exchange is no different. In...

Yes, I absolutely recommend that you run multi-role servers. And I have been on record several times to say that I like the comfort of running physical mailbox servers. Virtualization has its...

On-premises Exchange administrators might like to read this article on the impact of HeartBleed on them. In summary, not a problem for Exchange, but it could be a problem for other components in...

Friday, April 4, 2014 - 4:29pm

I wouldn't keep the roles separate. All of the advice given at MEC and previously by many experts is to only deploy multi-role servers. You get better use of the hardware and more resilience.

Friday, April 4, 2014 - 10:41am

The "Experts Unplugged: EOP and Encryption" session was one and "Exchange Online security investments" session was another that covered all matter of security issues to do with the cloud. You...

Quite. Useful for that first two or three hundred times...

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 - 1:24pm

Yes, that's true. However, I think the block-mode storage market is probably more mature in many senses than the NFS market. Hence more testing has been done and the challenges and support are...

You might consider it unfair, I consider it absolutely the case based on my knowledge of the MVP community and some of the games that are played within that community (by both Microsoft and MVPs)...

For those of you that like Facebook, we have a good group on Exchange 2013 https://www.facebook.com/groups/MSEX2013/

I like the LinkedIn groups as well, but not the interface so much.

Give them time... I bet there's a complicated process that has to be followed to update a knowledge base article into all the different languages that they use.

Monday, March 17, 2014 - 11:57am

It's kind of Microsoft to respond to this post with one of their own (http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2014/03/17/this-mailbox-database-contains-one-or-more-mailboxes.aspx) that tells...

Wednesday, March 12, 2014 - 2:00pm

@Emanuele, You make the point that the NFS vendors have been making for quite a while. Microsoft obviously has an issue with this and is unwilling to budge for their own reasons as outlined in the...

Hi Ralph, We are keeping the content of the books updated as the updates roll out. It is the nature of the publishing industry that they have to sell a certain number of books before they will...

@PNewell, thanks for sharing your thoughts on the matter. I bet these will be extremely valuable to anyone else who's working with Chrome in corporate environments. I agree that it is a happy...
