ATP! ATP!

At long last, I’ve made a first pass at updating the Migrate-EOPSettings script to now include settings for Advanced Threat Protection.  I’ve had several customers moving their instances from commercial EOP to Office 365 GCC, and while my Migrate EOP script would capture just about everything, it came to my attention that we still had configuration to do for ATP. … [ Continue reading ]

Yesterday, while working with a customer, I was asked if there is a way to programmatically add OneDrive locations to an existing retention policy.  Say, for example, you have a blanket retention policy that covers all of your tenant at a base level (which is what I typically recommend to ensure you at least have either belt or suspenders), but then you have a second set of users that need a longer policy.… [ Continue reading ]
