I have Exchange 2007 and I want to enable Outlook Anywhere for the purpose of office 365 staged migration.
We already have a working OWA 2007 for the users.
I have completed steps a) and b) so far.
a) I have installed Enable RPC over HTTP
b) On the EMC- Sever Configuration-Client access- I have Enabled Outlook Anywhere

The DNS and NetBIOS name of our Domain as attached in the snapshot. This is FYI and let me know if you need any further information.
Now to make the auto discover work, not sure what else i need to to do.

1) Do I need to create A record for autodiscover internally on the DNS.
2) I had renewed the SSL certificate procured from Trustico for Exchange 2007 server 12 months ago and do I need to now put autodiscover entries in the certificate.
3) Do I need to create a DNS forward lookup zones for my domain.
4) Do I need to add a “A” record for the autodiscover service on our public DNS.

Please suggest what is the easy way to make autodiscover work with my current setup.

Thanks any help and tutorials would be great.

I had this question after viewing Exchange 2013 Hybrid setup - HCW0 No federation trust is configured for this organization.

We have had an Office 365 tenant for years now, but have never migrated to it. Now that we wish to do so, I am getting the error in the subject line. Microsoft has worked on our inability to create a hybrid config off and on for the past year or more, with ZERO progress.

I see that one solution is to create a new tenant...does that mean creating an entirely new Office 365 account setup for our entire K-12 school district?  It's hard to imagine that switching to an entirely new Office 365 tenant domain name would not be a huge headache!

Perhaps I just don't understand the process. It was mentioned in the solution article listed above.

HELP!

I have a small business customer that I'm moving to Office 365.  There are just two users at this company.  In order for them to move to Office 365 Mail, they'll need Outlook 2016.  Exchange 2007 doesn't work with Outlook 2016.  What is the best way to make this happen smoothly?

Timing is of a concern since they make and ship parts.  Changing their MX record and getting their email loaded into Outlook 2016 will be a challenge.

Here's what I'm thinking.

1.  In their current older version of outlook, which works with Exchange 2007, save their email, calendar items and contacts to a PST file.

2.  Download and install Office 2016 from their Office 365 accounts.

3.  After Outlook 2016 is installed, point it to the Office 365 Exchange Server

4.  Import PST file into each user's profile

5.  Change MX record to change from their on prem Exchange Server to Office 365.

Any thing that I missed?

Thanks!

Office 365 setup. Default iPhone mail/calendar apps. Settings are correct on the app.

The user is experiencing random/intermittent sync problems. For instance, a meeting will be updated in Outlook, but the change doesn't sync. Certain mails don't arrive in inbox. Move that mail into a different folder and it appears. I've double checked all the settings and they appear fine. I deleted the calendar data, added again and the change in meeting synced no problem. It keeps happening though. Can anyone suggest something that I can do to prevent this?

Only a quick question, trying to ascertain the best practice to deal with leavers.

Q: What is the best policy for leavers and retaining email, Auditing etc?

We have quite a few leavers on the project but need to retain all email for these leavers.

We have a pure Office 365 environment.

What are the implications on journals after deleting the users account, soft and hard delete.

Thanks

Hi All,

I'm running Exchange server 2013 standard edition, and I tried to remove some of the old AD account from accessing the shared mailbox, using the PowerShell command:
Get the SID: Get-ADUser -Identity Kacung.Semprul
Remove the user: Remove-MailboxPermission -Identity Shared-MBX-1 -User "S-1-5-21-3684462478-1056977450-1152882164-8921" -AccessRights FullAccess -InheritanceType All -Deny:$true

But somehow I can not go through due to this error:
can't remove the access control entry on the object because the ace doesn't exist on the object

I've tried:
https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/31321.exchange-serveronline-the-ace-doesn-t-exist-on-the-object.aspx

But still not working for me.

Is it possible to host users within the same email domain within Office 365 and to host a few remaining users within a Gmail corporate account?

Users within both Office 365 and Gmail will both use the same email domain name which is company.com.

A company I am working for would like this to be done since they don't want to have to pay for an Office 365 licensing fee for all users and would like only the employees to be migrated into Office 365. They would like the contractors and consultants to be left within Gmail.

If this is possible what is involved in setting up this type of coexistence?

Microsoft recommends leaving an exchange server on premise to edit Directory Synced objects post hybrid migration (assuming you leave AD Connect up).  Either 2010 or 2013 (with a Hybrid Exchange License if you need one).  Using ADSI edit is "not supported".

But the mailboxes of course no longer show up in the EMC as a mailbox you can edit (for say SMTP addresses).  You can connect to the office 365 tenant via the EMC, but you can't edit anything coming from on premise.

How exactly do you use the EMC to modify directory synced objects?  For instance smtp addresses?

I have a few Office 365 / Outlook users who are experiencing a random problem when replying to various emails.  Example:
They receive an email from John Doe <jdoe@business.com>.  When they reply to the message, the name changes, but the email address is correct.  Example: The reply address would look like this: Steve Jones <jdoe@business.com>.  Steve Jones also has an @business.com address, same company, but that's not who sent the original message and has nothing to do with the reply.

This is happening with various email recipients, from different companies.  It does not appear to be isolated to a specific company or person and it doesn't happen all of the time with the same recipient.  It appears to be totally random - with the exception of the recipients always being part of the same company.

I checked the contacts in their Outlook and they are all separate contacts with information entered correctly.  What could be happening that the recipient name is changing and the email address is not when replying to email?

I have Exchange 2007 and I want to enable Outlook Anywhere for the purpose of office 365 Hybrid migration.

On the EMC-Sever Configuration-Client access- when I click Enable Outlook Anywhere

I have put the external host name and it asks to choose the client authentication method   .
Basic authentication
OR
NTLM authentication.

Not sure which type of client authentication method to choose.
We don’t have any proxy server in our network and our firewall is hosted outside with another company who maintains it.
So if I choose Basic authentication (default) and if this doesn’t work will I be able to switch back to use NTLM authentication.
Any suggestions will be great!


Thanks

I'm just looking for affirmation here...

I want to create a shared calendar and we have Office 365 and use Office 2016.  So, of course, the first step in creating a shared calendar is to create an email account.

So we created a public folder mailbox in the Exchange admin center.  We then created a Root Public Folder... I gave myself owner permissions.

Now I'm told that I need to go to Outlook and view Public Folders and if Public Folders isn't visible to give it a few hours.  This makes sense as it's Microsoft and with Google it takes seconds.

Anyway... can someone confirm how many "hours" it takes until I can see Public Folders?

Thanks

We are looking at upgrading our current Exchange 2010 onsite servers to the Exchange 365 Cloud based.  We currently have onsite Barracuda and Sophos devices that handle our SPAM and Antivirus e-mail scans.  We will have these devices for a couple more years before renewing.  I was wondering if anyone has any information on using these devices with the Exchange 365 cloud?  We are told that they will work, but we are wondering about the e-mail coming here and then up to Exchange 365.

Thank you

My predecessors didn’t setup Outlook Anywhere in the past and now due to the office 365 migration, I need to setup this.

Any help would be great.

I use VBA to create custom toolbars for MS Office applications.  For Word 2007, 2010, 2013, and 2016, I've always deployed global templates as a .dotm file in the user's AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP folder.  For Excel and PowerPoint, either .xlam or .ppam in the AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AddIns folder.  

Clients are asking me whether these same tools can be made to work in Office 365 where the applications are cloud-based rather than installed on the local machine.

Do global templates and Add-ins work with the cloud-based versions of O365 applications?  Can they be deployed as-is, or do they require modification, or do they need to be recreated in an entirely new language?  Can anybody point me to some documentation on this topic?

Thanks

Hello,

We have an AD-Connect server that syncs up our AD user accounts to Office 365.

After we create a new user account, we ususally edit a Saved Queries in the on-prem ADUC, and go to the Attribute Editor and update the proxyaddresses attribute before we sync the account to the cloud.  For some reason, I do not see the proxyaddresses anymore after the user is created.  

My colleague is able to see the attribute on his computer.  I have doublechecked advance features is enabled.

If someone knows, please advice where to check.

Thanks.

I've been asked with exporting all emails in a mailbox from a particular date range into a PST file.  I've done a little bit of research online and it looks like an easy way to do this is export to PST, but adding a filter to export only the sent items during the date ranges and the received during the date ranges.  I've done a test and that appears to be working fine.

I have two questions

1.  Has anyone used this method before and is it very reliable?  These results are to be provided for a lawsuit and they need to be accurate.

2.  Is there anything I might be missing that the sent & received filters might not catch.  It seems like an email is either sent or received, so that should catch them all.

Email is hosted with Office365 and using Outlook 2016

Thanks very much.

Hi All!

I am doing a staged migration from Exchange 2003 to Office 365.

Currently moving smaller mail accounts as I get used to the process. I find that they never complete although all the mail is transferred to the 365 account and the user is not reporting any missing email and having no issues.

The error is "Transient error MapiExceptionNetworkError has occurred. The system will retry" This only happens after the initial email sync. It attempts to retry every two days and never completes.

One issue maybe it always schedules the retry at night during the backup window for the exchange server.

Any suggestions?

I am attaching the detailed report for one of the mailboxes.


Thank you.

Is there a way within Outlook 365 to find out individual Folder Sizes like there used to be in the older versions on Desktops. I can find no references to this online or at Microsoft Help.

We are a Charity within the UK and use the British Telecom Business Outlook 365 which means we aren't the Administrator (BT are) however we have problems often getting this through to BT and finding someone that knows what they are talking about in this connection!

I'm wondering if any of your members have the same setup and know how to get the sizes... Basically we are getting warnings that we are approaching maximum size (which I am surprised about as it is 50GB).

We have 100s of Separate folders and it would be so much easier if I can find ones that have large Attachments and delete them having copied the attachment to a hard drive first. Or any other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in anticipation

Hi

We have Exchange 2007 server onsite and now planning to move to office 365 and I would like to go with the Hybrid Environment.

I ran the Exchange Deployment Assistant and on the document it says I need to configure Outlook Anywhere on our on- premises Exchange Server (because the email migration service uses RPC over HTTP)

Currently staff use OWA 2007 from outside through https://mail.myorg.co.uk. For this I procured the SSL from Trustico
The document says that I must use a certificate issued by a trusted certification authority (CA) with your Outlook Anywhere configuration.

So do I need to procure another SSL certificate to setup Outlook Anywhere. Bit confused here.
Please let me know how to go about.

Any help will be great.
Thanks

I need to export a users office 365 (ExchOnline) mailbox to a PST before deleting the account.

I believe that I can export a mailbox to a PST via EAC > Compliance Management > In-Place eDiscovery & hold

Question, the user is on Litigation Hold in Exchange Online. So when exporting the mailbox to PST, will it contain all the dumpster and lit-hold contents also?

Thanks,

I am not as cluey on the Apple Platform as I am on the PC platform.  I have a client with a 3-4 yr old iMac.  They have 2011 Outlook for Mac installed.  It has multiple identities due to changes that have occurred over the time in how their email has been set-up.  
The issue is that at some stage in the last 2 weeks, they have lost the mapping of the folder list "On My Computer" in their left pane in Outlook.  Their email is setup as Exchange using Office365.  But for some reason he used to keep the majority of this emails in folders list in 'On My Computer" in the left menu pane.

Now this main folder list has dissappeared.

Is there a way of retrieving this or remapping the list?

I have read up online and one forum suggested we recover the identity folder list from the Documents/MicrosoftUserData/Office 2011 identities/{Name of Identity folder} from the Time Machine, which we have done.  It needed to rebuild the folders, then after that the Account even dissappeared. I had to re create the account, still no "On my computer" folders??

Can anyone suggest anything else to try and see if we can recover or remap these folders??
I am presuming the folders and files are still on the computer but just cannot figure it out.
