Not all emails show in Outlook 2013 but are in respective folders in Office 365.

We migrated this summer for Exchange on site to Office 365 and moved up to Outlook 2013. Working pretty good but for a few users emails that hit the inbox are moved to folders and then they disappear. No filters are applied, we've turned cacheing on and off and as you can see from the screenshot properties/syncronization the system sees there should be 5 items on the server (there is) and in the offline folder (we don't see them).

Been banging my head on this for a month and I'm out of ideas. I've moved the sub-folders around from root to below inbox and it's only a handful of folders. Renamed them, recreated them...those emails do not want show up in Outlook 2013 but are 100% there in the web interface!screenshot of outlook 2013 and missing emails

Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V

Task Manager for Hyper-V provides critical information that allows you to monitor Hyper-V performance by displaying real-time views of CPU and memory at the individual VM-level, so you can quickly identify which VMs are using host resources.

MS Access 2007 Users/Developers - *** IMPORTANT NOTE ***

  This is a heads up that the following Access components available as standalone downloads are moving past extended support in the near future and along with other Office 2007 products, will not be available for download after that time.

  If you have any software that depends on the 2007 (32bit) database engine or the 2007 run time, you'll want to download these as soon as possible so you have them.

How can I share out an old *.exe application to multiple users in an AD environment who are connected from home via VPN? The requirement is that the execution of *.exe must be from the office network, the *.exe application calls a bunch of databases from other servers in the office and will disconnect if the application runs from the user's computer via VPN.

I am thinking of setting up a Windows 2012 servers and allow RDP connections for users to run the *.exe on the server from home(via VPN). Are there any other ways?

I recently passed my Microsoft 70-346 Exam.  As part of my revision I used Flash Cards that I created to help memorise key information.  The Flash Cards have been created on Cram and I've recently made them public.  You can access them from here:

http://www.cram.com/flashcards/70-346-8863906

I've gone overboard on the amount of information on there but It might help those attempting to pass this exam.  Obviously this is to be used in conjunction with other courses.  I can recommend the course on Platform Scholar.

The information on the Flashcards are valid as far as I am aware.  Obviously I take no liability for incorrect information.

Not much hope Microsoft will go backward. I do not find Office 2016 hard or complex to use. One nice feature is a box in the ribbon "Tell me what you want to do"  I have learned to type my needs here to get the menu choice I need. I expect Microsoft to improve upon this.

I am sharing with you some quick commands on using Office 365 Power Shell to perform Office 365 admin center tasks from the command line to your Office 365 organization:

How you can Connect to Office 365:

Import Office 365 Module  : Import-Module MSOnline
Connect to your Directory  : Connect-MsolService
Users Commands:

List all users:                        get-msoluser -all
List all users with count:        get-msoluser -all | measure

Change UPN on all unlicensed users:      Get-MsolUser -all | Where { -Not $_.UserPrincipalName.ToLower().StartsWith(“admin@”) } | ForEach { Set-MsolUserPrincipalName -ObjectId $_.ObjectId -NewUserPrincipalName ($_.UserPrincipalName.Split(“@”)[0] + “@acig.com.sa”) }
Remove all unlicensed users:       Get-MsolUser -all | Where-Object {$_.isLicensed -ne "true"} | Remove-MsolUser -Force


Office 365 Licensing Information:

You can use a Power Shell script to check if users have a license assigned directly or inherited from a group:

      1. Run the connect-msolservice cmdlet to authenticate and connect to your tenant as explained on the above commands.
      2. Get-MsolAccountSku can be used to discover all provisioned product licenses in the tenant.

Thanks and hope this might helps.

2017-09-20-13.01.07.pngEarly adopters of Apple iOS 11 are unable to send Microsoft-provided email using the native Mail app.

So I would hold off upgrade if this is important to you!

It affects Outlook.com, Office 365 and Exchange 2016 running on Windows Server 2016. Many businesses rely on Exchange and Office 365 for email.

Whoops.....Too late!

Gotta wonder how this ended up happening... iOS 11 was in beta for plenty of time...

Just did some quick checking and MacRumors is saying that there were bug reports on this during the beta:
https://www.macrumors.com/2017/09/20/apple-microsoft-email-server-issue-mail-app-ios-11/

Looks like Microsoft has some workarounds too. Either using Outlook for iOS client or disabling HTTP/2 in Windows Server 2016.

Looks like you added this as a post.  You might want to change it to a question to get more attention and answers.

https://products.office.com/en-us/business/office-365-affiliate-program-try-business-premium

Office 365 has a free business trial, otherwise it's $12.50 per user.  The best thing for you to do is sign up, roll up your sleeves, and run through some items.

-Create a Mailbox.
-Create a Distribution List.
-Set up a copy of Outlook.
-Create contacts.
-Create a dynamic distribution list.
-Set up some spam filters.
-Set up a sharepoint site.
-Install office on your PC with O365
etc.

You can try and get interview questions and answers for O365 questions but how does that qualify you for the job?  What are you going to do when they expect you to do a basic task you have no idea how to?  (What's the point of getting a job and then losing it?)  There's a reason they ask them, to see if you have the skills and knowledge they are looking for.  O365 is not complicated by any means, the Exchange admin side is probably the one most IT jobs want more experience with; but management in the portal is very easy.

If you want more info from other experts I'd suggest posting this again as a question- but be warned you will probably get the same answer about the Q&A.

I've recently made the switch to inbox (by Google) that I believe has a much closer to outlook interface than gmail, which is why I like it.
There's the action buttons on each message, reminders, archiving etc. Also runs in its own window, which can also be pinned to the taskbar.
Gmail has none of this (other than be pinned/run as own window)
If it wasn't for Inbox, I'd probably go back to outlook.

I have been using inbox on my gmail account for my android phone and outlook for my desktop.  

I do like some of the less cluttered look of inbox but you can't do everything in inbox as you can with gmail.  So now in typical Google fashion, they have 2 products where one is the shiny new thing that is missing features.  At some point, one of of these things is going to go or not get much love.  

Google Voice took the back seat to Hangouts, now hangouts has changed and Voice has been updated.  Talk was completely merged to hangouts.  Making a call from gmail used to be via talk which turned into voice, but now making a call from gmail is via hangouts.

Have you ever spent time developing with google products/api's?  Have fun because they tend to sunset and change things quickly.
