Yep. Progress is wonderful, isn't it?

No advanced training available, so what should experienced Exchange administrators do? Commented on: 4 days ago (February 9, 2016)

Stay tuned for some news about the speaker line-up for the 2016 IT DEV/Connections conference. We might not have the Kool-Aid that will be available at Ignite (in abundance), but we will have some...

Microsoft fails to communicate over Exchange Online IMAP4 outage Commented on: 1 week ago (February 1, 2016)

Well, Microsoft did fail to communicate if you understand that term to mean that they were effective. Cutting and pasting the same text into five updates after the first is hardly communication. I...

Looking back at the world of Exchange in 2015 Commented on: 5 weeks ago (January 4, 2016)

Thanks for asking but I don't currently plan on writing an Exchange 2016 book. There's too much effort required for very little reward and I have new projects to look after, such as "Office 365...

IE9 to deliver "diminished experience" for Office 365 users from January 12 Commented on: 7 weeks ago (December 22, 2015)
