Legacy Public Folder Coexistence in Multi-Site Hybrid Deployments

Those of you familiar with public folders know how much of a pain they can be. Microsoft has made promises to do away with them time and time again, yet they are still around and as painful as they have always been. Understandably, it is difficult to do away with support for a feature that […]

Getting Access Tokens for both SharePoint and Microsoft Graph

A few days ago, I was working on a project and needed to know if it was possible to access a user’s Exchange Online calendar using the same access token used to access list data in one of their SharePoint Online site collections.

Office 365 – How To Import PSTs From Azure Storage Via PowerShell

It’s been over a year since Microsoft started previewing the “PST Import Service” which allowed administrators to import PSTs into Exchange Online mailboxes. The blog post I wrote (“Office 365 – Using the New PST Import Service“) about the service back in May 2015 has been incredibly popular which tells me there’s a high amount […]

Office 365 – Have You Enabled “Common Attachment Blocking”?

Anyone who works with Office 365 knows that there is no shortage of new features rolling out, the pace at which new functionality is made available definitely keeps you on your toes.

Office 365 – Script to Move Mail Distribution Groups to the Cloud

One of the common limitations that organizations discover when deploying Exchange Online is the inability of users to “self-manage” distribution groups that are synchronized.

It’s been about 18 months since Microsoft announced the “Clutter” feature in Exchange Online.

While Office 365 offers an ever-expanding amount of insight of logging and health information, there are still operational tasks behind the scene that organizations do not have insight into.

While the Office 365 Roadmap is the authoritative source for features being added to the service, many features seem to receive a sort of “official announcement” via blog post or otherwise before they appear on the roadmap.

Office 365 – Providing Your Users Visual Cues About Email Safety

It seems like every week I see a new phishing story coming through my social media feeds. The stories are all basically the same, someone with access to financials in an organization receives an email from “an executive” and follows instructions to wire thousands, hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars overseas. While I’m admittedly […]

Just a quick post today on a recent script I had to put together. The message trace feature within Exchange Online works pretty well but can be a challenge if you want to search based on a particular email subject. In a scenario where you want to know who received an email or a set […]
