This caught my eye because I needed t0 place sharing buttons in an email this week, as opposed to links to a social media page.

I did it using AddThis - very easy and works perfectly.

Scroll down and click "See All Tools" to get to the email sharing button info.

Another good reason to include your email address in your signature is that some email clients will, depending on the original recipient's "Display contact as:" settings, strip your address from the original "From:" line when your email is forwarded, leaving only your name. Your signature thus may be the only place where the forwardee can find your email address.

@bsod I've noticed Apple products do that (my ipad, specifically). Can't imagine what mental giant at Apple thought stripping actual email addresses from the body content was a good idea...

Very well written, voting Yes.

btw How are you tracking where the views come from?  Is there ability to 'embed' specific ID's in the email links, such that an inbound marketing company like Hubspot has the ability to track views by specific user's email?

Our service desk has a batch file to run on users that are having OST or Outlook issues. It deletes the following files and folders from "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook": *.OST, *.TMP, *.OBI, *.INF, *.XML, "Offline Address Books", and "RoamCache". Do not use on a user unless they are in the office or on a fast connection since OST rebuilds can be a slow.

Many thanks for sharing the story here.

So with the new Exchange Server 2013, are you going to use DAG with lagged copy or just 2 nodes DAG only ?

In my previous company I was using 2 Nodes stretched CCR cluster across two different VLAN/Subnets geographical locations. It wasn't ideal since the AD sites is also different, hecne in the DR I must change the Mailbox Server AD sites membership to match the HUB/CAS server to be able to send email after the failover.

Microsoft Suggest 2 node CCR cluster  within the same AD site and then one more node to become SCR (standby) in the other AD site.

I am still evaluating our options with Exchange 2013 being drastically different than Exchange 2007.

The project is being significantly delayed by the existence of legacy messaging systems (like Exchange 2003) and the probability of a Windows Domain name change. [Which isn't exactly supported]

May the adventures continue.  :^)

Microsoft has released various new features which are capable of handling various tasks. One of these tasks is ‘Migration from pop3 to Exchange Server’. Pop3 data stores various data along mailboxes like contacts, tasks, etc. So, it becomes the need of the users to migrate pop emails to Exchange.

Why Migration
 
  • Due to some database errors, troubleshooting problem occurs with existing mailboxes.
  • Also,  managing database becomes so hard.
So, this blog will provide you instructions on how to migrate mailboxes from pop3 to Exchange. This procedure may be summarized in very few simple steps. The Steps include:

1. Creating a Mailbox in the Exchange Database,
2. Import your .PST file in that folder using a mailbox import command in Exchange,
3. Configure it with Outlook.

In this blog we are going through the entire migration process. First of all, we’ll start with creating a new folder in Exchange database.

1. Creating Mailbox in Exchange Database

As we know that the .pst files are used for pop3 account or can say pop3 uses .pst file extension. This .pst (personal storage table) files stores all your messages & other items & is being kept on computer only. So when you want to migrate pop3 to exchange, you need to import this .PST file to Exchange. But, this is not possible directly; for this you have to create a Mailbox in Exchange Database. Thereafter, you can easily transport .pst file to Exchange.

2. Importing .PST file to Exchange
