Syncing on prem to office 365 via adconnect and migrating mailboxes to exchange online in the cloud.  I have a couple of questions:

1.  If I migrate a users mailbox, and the user does not have a license in Office 365, will the user still migrate and have full functionality with the migrated mailbox for 30 days?  After 30 days, would this go to the recycle bin and need to be restored?

2.  I am assigning licenses through msol by using a on premises group, then have a script that reads the group and if a member set's license sku's in O365.  On some occasions (small amount), the license is added to the group, and the script goes to set a license sku but this fails.  I think this is due to giving a license to the user at some point, then taking it away.  Does giving a license set any attributes in msol which would cause this?

3.  I set a SIP address for skype for business for on prem mailboxes and accounts that are syncing to O365.  I've noticed when some accounts were migrated, that skype connection was lost and I had to re-license the user.  Any explanation why this would happen.

Really appreciate any knowledge on this.

Thanks

I have a calendar in SharePoint 2013 that appears to work fine except when I attempt to add a new event.

When I am inputting data for the new event, Start Time and End Time are both blank (gray fields with no times to select) and neither allows for a time selection. There are no error messages.

Hi team,

I have 2 exchange setup for 2 domains , the exchange version is 2016.
The problem is when user A send an email to user B,  user B is receiving. While user B replies user A is not receiving the email.
While user B receives emails from all other email ids in the User A domain. Only not receiving email from user A.

I have removed the email id from User A cache still not receiving. Our email gateway is Barracuda and even barracuda is not showing any thing.

No bounce back messages. It is showing on send items.
I have checked and no rules were set .

Can you please help  me in sorting this.

I have a local exchange server 2013 install on windows server 2012R2,

what is the best way to see who is sending emails through the exchange server, especially if they are sending loads of messages(spamming)? We have been put on a  black list twice in the last 2 month and i'm unsure which user is sending excessive messages,  no users have complained about a virus being on their machines. We have sophos pure message protecting the exchange server and pure message does not  log the amount of messages scanner by a particular, user it just scans attachments and message content, not volume of messages.  

Please help

Hello,

We have recently had a sudden issue for several client workstations.  

Outlook 2016 client with an Exchange 2016 server.

When users reply or forward messages within the Outlook "preview", the signature works.  However when they open the message so that it opens in a new window, and select to reply or forward, the signature does not populate.

I have checked and verified that the editor is in HTML, and that there are no Add-Ins.  
I have uninstalled the Symantec Anti-Virus for troubleshooting purposes.  

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I have a bulk file that has multiple HL7 messages contained in the file.  Each message block starts with MSH segment.  However the batch file has index id numbers prepended to the string.  I need to remove the 10 characters before the 'MSH' and replace with blank.

I am using Notepad++ as the editor and I think this can be done possibly with regex but I don't know how to accomplish the task.  I have no regex experience, nor programming/scripting.

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

Current data example:
0000000764MSH|^~\&|RELAYHEALTH|RWJSL|RELAYHEALTH|RWJSL|20170622085225||ADT^A14|WIEH52WIJQQ7Q6JQVA7E|P|2.5
EVN|A14|20170622085225
...
0000000924MSH|^~\&|RELAYHEALTH|RWJSL|RELAYHEALTH|RWJSL|20170622091618||ADT^A14|TQSJB2CG9GTZH8SY8HWB|P|2.5

Desired output would be:

Ready to get started with anonymous questions?

It's easy! Check out this step-by-step guide for asking an anonymous question on Experts Exchange.

Would like to report on the amount of messages inbound, outbound, replied to, etc for a specific mailbox if possible on Exchange 2013.  Is there such a tool that can monitor a mailbox specific and do this that I am unaware of? Thank you for your advice.

I use a series of rules in OWA to control my email so the rules are applied when my laptop may be shut down or offline. However, OWA does not appear to support rules for messages that are sent, only those that are received. I copy myself on all of my outgoing email via a rule in Outlook, but the rule disappears after a while, apparently as a result of syncing with OWA.

Does anyone know a workaround for this?

Thank you

I need to get the count of error messages from a SQL database table over the past 24 hours.

Example:

Time:              Count:
1:00 AM         5 errors
2:00 AM         1 error
3:00 AM         10 errors
4:00 AM         5 errors
.......

12:00 PM       0 errors
.........

10:00 PM       6 errors

and so on. Below is my attempt but it is not correct.
select COUNT (messageType) as [Count], Datestamp
from Table1
where Datestamp between dateadd(hour, -24, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP)
AND CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
GROUP BY CAST(Datestamp as DATE) ,CASE
      WHEN DATEPART(HOUR, Datestamp) > 12 THEN DATEPART(hour, Datestamp) - 12
      ELSE DATEPART(Hour, Datestamp)
END , dateadd(hour, datediff(hour, 0, Datestamp), 0), Datestamp
ORDER BY dateadd(hour, datediff(hour, 0, Datestamp), 0) ASC;

I have recently seen an increase in my users wanting to use third party messaging apps, specifically WhatsApp, to transfer company information between them and other employees. I am curious as to the community's thoughts on this, and if you allow it, how do you manage it without it getting out of control or presenting security concerns?

I'm looking for ways to tell our users if the server will be going down or for emergencies. E-mail is to slow because most people do not check their email for hours at a time. First would it be safe to open up an inbound port for 445, only allowing IT department IP addresses (possible spoofing issues)? What are the other options that you have used to tell your co-workers when a server is going down besides e-mail?
Thanks

I need to set PHP to write to a file.
When I run this code -

    <?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);ini_set('display_errors', 1);
$myfile = fopen("newfile.txt", "w") ordie("Unable to open file!");
$txt = "John Doe\n";
$txt = "Jane Doe\n";
echo "PHP worked ?";
fclose($myfile);
?>

there are no error messages in FireFox, just a blank screen.
there is a 500 server error in Internet Explorer.

Is there something wrong or the placement of the error_reporting code?
PHP is running properly through the server other than I'm sure there are errors trying to write to the file.

Thanks,

Michael

I was having twitter forward tweets to my cell phone as SMS messages. I signed up for loads of news sites and got a message about 200 messages / day limit...

Then I got the twitter app for IOS and was getting the messages on my lock screen from both twitter and messages. I turned off forward messages to phone.

Then in last couple days, I stopped getting any tweets.

was there an update in ios twitter account?    I went into the twitter app and see a bell with check icon.  (was it there before) checked that and a window labeled account notificiations was set to none. I changed that to all tweets now I get the tweets twice.

how do I only get tweets from only the ios app and showing up on the lock screen on the iphone?

Want Experts Exchange at your fingertips?

With Experts Exchange’s latest app release, you can now experience our most recent features, updates, and the same community interface while on-the-go. Download our latest app release at the Android or Apple stores today!

Our company's current Transport Limits in Exchange Server 2010 are set to 20,000kb  for "Maximum Receive Size" as well as "Maximum Send Size".  I would like to increase it to 30,000KB.  For reasons other than storage space on our server (which we have plenty of), is there any other reason I should not be increasing those parameters?

Also, if a sender was sending one of our users an email containing attachments exceeding the current 20,000KB and our settings remained at 20,000 KB, would the sender receive any messages indicating that the email was not delivered to us if they do not request a delivery receipt? (i.e. would they receive notification that the attachments were too large for out limits and advise the sender that the email was not successfully sent?).

I recall a few years ago that I used a program similar to Skype which allowed me to have private conversations via this tool.

There was some sort of key that I generated on my PC and emailed to the other person, which that person added to this tool. We then have "private" conversations.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? That does tool, or another, offer this today?

Thanks.

I have setup a Windows 2016 SMTP server to use for mail relay. When I send a test messages using the new SMTP server, the message is delivered. When I look at the logs, it shows me connecting from my workstation, then somehow it is sending the SMTP traffic over to my Exchange server. I don't want this to go through my Exchange server. I want the new SMTP server to do the sending.

Any ideas on how/why it is going to my Exchange server?

Chat / IM

Instant messaging (IM) is a type of online chat that offers real-time text transmission over the Internet. A LAN messenger operates in a similar way over a local area network. More advanced instant messaging can add file transfer, clickable hyperlinks, Voice over IP, or video chat. Non-IM types of chat include multicast transmission, usually referred to as "chat rooms". Depending on the IM protocol, the technical architecture can be peer-to-peer (direct point-to-point transmission) or client-server (a central server retransmits messages from the sender to the communication device).
