Hello experts,
We are in the process of synchronizing user objects to office 365, and while runing an IDFix tool, and we have DLs that start with " !" exclamation point that are causing issues/errors. We use this character to have these distribution lists at the top of the corporate GAL. RFC 2822 for smtp says it can be used and this MS article does not mention this being an illegal character -> https://support.office.com/en-us/article/prepare-to-provision-users-through-directory-synchronization-to-office-365-01920974-9e6f-4331-a370-13aea4e82b3e

Any advices/thoughts/ideas on fixing the issue?

Thank you!

Breaking up my PowerPoint seminar

What features exist in PowerPoint to organize my seminar? I see how Sections can be made and named. How can I use those sections to:

- Create an outline?
- Skip a section to the following section?

What other methods exist for this in PowerPoint?

And what other things can be done with Sections in PowerPoint?

Thanks.

How can I stop Smartsheets.com from sorting my online spreadsheet alphabetically by the first column?

I have pasted this spreadsheet directly from Excel 2016 and I want it to stay sorted in the original order; I don't want the spreadsheet to be sorted by alphabetically by the first column.

How can I stop Smartsheets from doing this?

Sorry, I set up 2 machines - 1 that has onedrive and one that has onedrive for business installed.

I keep being told the only similarity / continuity between them is the first part of their name - onedrive.  They are entirely different animals?! the ODFB runs on sharepoint?  

Am I missing something?  They seem to have the same functionality.

I am most familiar with Dropbox.  So if you can put things into comparision with Dropbox, that would help me understand things better : )

We have some users that were trying to migrate to Office 365, Exchange online...

They were given E3 licences weeks ago for testing the Msol services, but now we are unable to migrate their mailboxes successfully to the cloud. Would this possibly be because they were already enabled for Exchange Online and so a mailbox was provisioned in the cloud, prior to migrating their on-prem mailboxes?

How do we fix this? Remove the O365 E3 licenses, wait, migrate the mailbox and assign the license again?

Whats the general rule of thumb? Migrate mailboxes THEN assign licenses?

Thanks,

Hello,

I just finished deploying a Hybrid configuration for Office 365 and Exchange 2013. Everything went fine but when I validate my outbound connector it fails with the following error:
450 4.4.316 Connection refused [Message=Socket error code 10061]
[LastAttemptedServerName=owa.glaciercap.com] [LastAttemptedIP=12.184.1.88:25] [CY1NAM02FT039.eop-nam02.prod.protection.outlook.com]

I white-listed all the EOP IPs in our firewall so I'm not sure why this is happening. Did I miss something?

Hello,
I run an Office 365 Business account for my company.   We've just recently started enabling Multi-factor authentication for my users.

I've run into a problem where every time I enable it, then have them log into office.com to set up their app password it then doesn't synch up with outlook 2016.

To be more specific.  I enable it for them, then have them log into office.com and then click the "Set it up" link where they receive the verification text on their cell phone.
Then I have them open outlook desktop app (outlook 2016) and we would expect it to prompt for a new app password.  It's not.  If I leave it alone, about 1 to 2 hours later it stops working and will not open at all claiming the set of folders is unavailable.

If I remove the profile and have it restart, it accepts the app password but then still says the set of folders is unavailable.

The only way I've found so far to fix this is to go back into their account, disable multi-factor.  Then re-enable it and have them walk through the setup again.  This seems to do the trick.

Is there a time period I should be waiting before trying to access it?  Or is there something else going on I'm not aware of?

any help would be great.

Hi all.

We are in the process of doing an Exchange 2010 migration to Office 365 using the Code Two Office 365 Migration Tool. Although many of the mailboxes have moved over fine, we are getting quite a few that are not with the below error.

The specified object was not found in the store., Can't connect to the mailbox of user Mailbox database guid: *********-****-****-****-************ because the ExchangePrincipal object contains outdated information. The mailbox may have been moved recently.

Could someone please advise on what could be going wrong?

Thank you.

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

I'm doing a cut over migration to office 365. The  batch shows some users have items skipped. For most of those users, I can click on Skipped Items Details and see what was skipped. A few of the mailboxes show that items were skipped but when I click Skipped Items Details, the list is empty.

How can I find out what was skipped or is it possible that nothing was skipped?

Hello guys, having a slight problem with the eDiscovery PST Export Tool within Office 365, I have done a search query for some emails and its come back with 37 emails....not many at all. So when I try to do an export via IE, it sticks on calculating and doesn't seem to do anything, there is nothing in the location of the export apart from a system file within the temp folder it's created. I have tried multiple times to do this export and even left it over night, but still no joy. I have read a few forums which advises to check the permissions of the CM, DM and OM, all of which I am a member of so this cannot be permission issues.
The first time I ran this export I was prompted to enter the O365 admin credentials, I don't get that anymore so not sure if its stuck in a loop. Any help would be appreciated as I really need this PST file for a user.
Thanks in advance!

. Is there any way around this?

I have problem creating a federated trust / organization between a  Exchange 2010 and a Office 365
i'm trying to create connection between to organizations free / busy calendar shearing

following this guide https://johanveldhuis.nl/exchange-federation-deel-i/

tried  to do it many times now and still no luck :-( i'm confused on the second page of the new federation trust guide,
is it my domain or the remote domain i need to write here ? i think it is my domain and then i add the remote domain in the
organization relationship part ?

if i run the Test-FederationTrust -UserIdentity admin@MYDOMAIN.xx i get all success
but if i run Get-FederationInformation -DomainName MYDOMAIN.xx -Verbose i get failed on autodiscover
"Federation information could not be received from the external organization."
but the https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com works fine with autodiscover.

will i need to run the Get-FederatedDomainProof -DomainName   on both MYDOMAIN.xx(exchange 2010) and REMOTEDOMAIN.xx (office365)

Best Regards

We have a really strange problem affecting us at the moment.
A bit of background of our setup. We have Office 365 and currently using Office 2013. Office 365 integrates with Mimecast and Exclaimer cloud (email signature software).

Inbound emails threads are having the body of the email pushed to the bottom of the email. The top of the email has all the standard information (from, to etc) but the user has to scroll to the bottom to see the latest content of the email. Under the from/to information there is a carriage return but no body.
This only appears to be affecting certain domains at the moment (we have around 3/4 users reporting it from 3/4 different domains).
If we recover the email from mimecast (email filtering) the email shows in the correct format with the body in the normal place.

We've had it logged and got nowhere with Microsoft support and Exclaimer Cloud.
Has anyone else see this before?

I am using SharePoint online (365), and am having an issue inviting 'external' users to a site collection. A few months ago, inviting users to the site worked without issue. We were able to share the site with multiple users on different domains, and each was able to view with the proper permissions they were assigned (invited from a group in "People & Groups"). I recently encountered an issue using the "Share" command, or trying to add users to groups. Doing so resulted in a pop-up error "Could not resolve memberid, (followed by the user i was inviting)"; after clearing the browser cache, this issue ceased, and I was able to invite people without getting any errors. The user would show up in the SharePoint groups & Office 365 "People" as 'user_domain_com#ext#sharepointdomain.onmicrosoft.com' after sending the invitation, and the link would send to their email; however when they use the link, they get the following:

If I invite 'user@domain.com', the message is:

"Access denied, the user 'user_domain_com#ext#sharepointdomain.onmicrosoft.com' does not have permission to view the site."

The user's email, name, and info seems to be correctly adding to the groups I assign & invite them to. External sharing is turned on at the top site collection level, and on the site itself. I have checked both via the SharePoint admin center, and the "Site Settings". Additionally, Azure AD shows them as "Users" with their proper email addresses.

Thanks

Hi. I’m getting the Error “Excel couldn’t start last time. Safe mode could help…” “Do you want to start in safe mode?”

I click Yes and nothing happens. I’ve tried everything with this problem, Repair, Uninstall/Reinstall O365, Reboots, etc. Has anyone had this nasty problem? I have the same problems with Word
