This tool has been updated with new options. See https://www.undocumented-features.com/2017/10/19/update-to-wipe-exchange-online-mailbox-script/.
Periodically over the years, I’ve run into content problems trying to migrate data to Exchange Online using third-party migration tools–they somehow get stuck, don’t like something existing in the destination mailbox (or didn’t write it properly in the first place) and you need a clean mailbox to restart the process. … [ Continue reading ]
If your organization is like a lot of them out there, you have mailbox users without the email address policy applied. It’s a pretty common practice to work around name changes, users with similar names or middle initials, or one-off primary SMTP addresses.… [ Continue reading ]
This tool has been deprecated and replaced with the OneDrive for Business Admin Tool: http://aka.ms/OneDriveAdmin.
On a customer call a few weeks ago, I was asked if we could remove a specific folder across all (or a subset of) their OneDrive for Business sites. … [ Continue reading ]
When we talk about Office 365 services with our customers, a lot of the discussion revolves around the networking components. While we generally have a “good idea” of networking, we’re not experts in your technology and will frequently tell you to go talk to your vendors. … [ Continue reading ]
For most of our large enterprise, commercial, and government customers, an Exchange hybrid environment provides a validated and supported method for deploying, migrating, and managing both an on-premises Exchange organization as well as Office 365.
In some cases, though (such as migrating from a hosted platform or other 3rd-party products that don't have Active Directory integration), you may not need everything hybrid provides or may not have a need to support the infrastructure migrating mailboxes cross-premises. For that, I've created a tool to help accelerate configuring Exchange to set and manage attributes and enable-cmdlets (such as Enable-RemoteMailbox).… [ Continue reading ]
Ever since the advent of DirSync, you’ve been able to add a picture’s binary content to the thumbnailPhoto attribute in AD and synchronize it to Office 365. This blob would be rendered as a photo next to the user’s name in Outlook, OWA, and Lync. … [ Continue reading ]
From time to time, we update the URLs and IP addresses that our services use. This happens as a normal course of business (deploying new services, adding new capacity in datacenters or regions). If your organization is trying to filter network traffic, you need to make sure you are allowing your users to these services. … [ Continue reading ]
*UPDATE* We have deprecated the Service Health Dashboard RSS Feed. For service health updates, you can go to https://portal.office.com/adminportal/home#/servicestatus.
Periodically, services in Office 365 may become affected by a number of things (network availability, regional network disruptions, upgrades to the service environment, etc).… [ Continue reading ]
Recently, I had to work with a customer whose existing mail host was (surprise) not excited to configure a secondary domain for us to help migrate out of the hosted environment.
To give a little background, when we configure a traditional hybrid environment (I love using those terms together), we are configuring two disparate environments to share a single address space. … [ Continue reading ]
In case you ever need to configure Outlook for an Office 365 tenant that *does not* have AutoDiscover records published, here is how to do it.
1. Log into PowerShell for tenant and run the following command:
Get-Recipient | Select-Object Identity,Mail,ExchangeGuid | Export-Csv .\recipientlist.csv
