I want to deactivate an office 365 installation.  The issue is that I'm not sure if the workstation still exists or not.  lol
Question is that if I deactivate it, could a user potentially loose work/data?  I was thinking if the workstation is still in use, the user will get a licensing error, I will reinstall or activate no harm no foul..

Sound OK?

First time migrating from Office 365 back to Exchange 2016 On-Premise, any tips?  My first thought would be to backup all the O365 mailboxes to PST and do an Import-Mailbox for each user.  It may take longer but I think it's the solution w/ the least amount of questions.  Any suggestions, tips, advice?

About 40 pst files/users from old o365 system at USB disk, 0nly 25GB of data. The old o365 system uses different domain name than the new M365 system. No admin credentials for old o365 system.

How to import those psts to new system? Is BitTitan good for this or what do you recommend?

Further more. The end users may want to have all old emails under a spesvfic folder, For example to a folder under inbox called old-mails. This scenario is not mandatory.

I spend quite a bit of time driving and am interested in finding an app or method so that any incoming Office 365/Exchange emails received on my iPhone X will be read to me.

This will allow me to know what the incoming emails say without having to read these emails while I am driving.

What apps are currently available that will allow this to be done?

If we use shared computer activation for office 2016

is it expected to make that change on the local machine to add anything to the local installation? Or does the activation take place from the user profile standpoint? Would that be saved? Would a user be prompted to log back in after the machine was rebooted.

we are currently using E3 proplus 365 license for users.


 one expert suggested that shared computer activation is not suitable for non persistence desktops?

Hi,

In Exchange 2007, I used to create a security group and add AD users to the group to manage their access permission. For example, Created a staff security group and add all staff accounts to the group. It was easy to manage access permissions as I did not have to add an individual account to a mailbox permission.

Is it possible via Office 365? I noticed the security group means a bit different from active directory security group in the office 365.

I have been having an issue with Azure AD Connect and have run out of troubleshooting ideas and hoping someone can help. I have a support ticket open with our Office 365 re-seller but so far they have been unwilling to open a ticket with Microsoft.

The issue is that our password hash synchronization stops working after a few days. The event viewer logs an event 611, Password hash synchronization failed for domain: (our domain name). Details:
Microsoft.Online.PasswordSynchronization.SynchronizationManagerException: Unable to open connection to domain: (our domain name). Error: Unable to retrieve source domain information. ---> Microsoft.Online.PasswordSynchronization.DirectoryReplicationServices.DrsException: Unable to retrieve source domain information. ---> System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryServicesCOMException: There is no such object on the server.

I originally uninstalled and reinstalled Azure AD Connect and that fixed the problem for a few days. Then the same error re-occurred. I originally thought that it might have been a networking issue with our Hyper-V cluster because disabling IP-Sec offloading on the VM and rebooting the VM caused the password synchronization to start working. However, I think that was just a coincidence because the password hash failed again a day later and doing the same thing had no effect the second time around. Either way, the support agent I have been working with wanted me to install the Azure AD Connect on a physical computer, …

We are in the process of migration our onprem Exchange 2010/2016 to Office365. F5 is currently the smtp proxy for office365. We are running into an issue where the SMTP header “X-MS-Exchange-Organization-AuthAs” is marked with “anonymous” whereas it needs to show as "Internal" in order for Out of Office messages to be interpreted correctly. Is there way to have the Virtual Server retain the message headers from office365 and not get altered by the F5.

Office 365 Autodiscover gives a Certificate warning and I have no Idea where the cert is coming from.


I Used the Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant for Office 365 tool and get;

"AutoDiscover service seems to have configuration issues that prevent Outlook to connect o Office 365. An intermediate web server at https://(domain name).com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml is interfering with AutoDiscover service and responding with incomplete data.

Your administrator need to either remove or correct the AutoDiscover component from https://(domain name).com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml. "


We have checked and there is NO Autodiscover.xml file on the web server at all.

I have tried this from the customers network as well and an external network (using a different DNS server) and get the same result.

As a result, we cannot add new profiles to outlook,

I have a hybrid solution setup between my on-prem and O365. The problem I have is that O365 users can not see the free/busy information of any new domain I create (on-prem) and configure. For old domains we had when hybrid configuration was setup, O365 users can still see free/busy information of those users, and vice versa.

So to clarify, if I had to create a new domain now called problem.com with mailboxes on-prem, and set it up with all DNS records required and added to O365, the users on O365.com will not be able to see the free/busy schedule for any users on the problem.com domain. The problem.com users though, are able to see the free/busy schedule of the O365 users.

Note, CNAME and SRV records have all been added and domain verified on O365.

Can any one point me in the right direction? I have attached a screenshot which shows two users (both on prem) free and busy information. The new domain's free and busy does not show, but the old domain's does..Free/busy information

Hi,

I hope you can help me with a serious problem with some spam email.

Background -

Our office switch the email to Office 365 the year before last. We have a number of email accounts on the Exchange server.

The address of one of the email accounts has been used by a bot-net to send out spam emails, and now the user is receiving 100s of bounced back undeliverable (error 550) emails.

The action center on Exchange Admin has identified that the email address has been involved with the spam, and has blocked the account from sending out emails, with the error-OutboundSpamLast24Hours=122;OutboundMailLast24Hours=134;OutboundSpamPercent=910;Last Message MessagetraceId:c401e900-91fa-4a20-66e1-08d5d7892e05

This, however, has not stopped the bot-net continuing to send out messages and, as I type this, the bounced back undeliverable messages keep coming in.

Our domain is not currently blacklisted on any mail blacklists, and I would like to keep it that way, but test messages sent out from other accounts in the office are immediately going into the Junk mail folders of GMail recipients because it says that a lot of messages from our domain are spam.

Below is the header of one of the messages returned.  I have determined that the originating IP is not ours.

Can someone please take a look at the header, and give me ideas on how I can stop the user's email address from being used for spam ?

The stars represent names of our servers and domain.

Any help is…

Dear experts,
Any suggestions or comments on the following script? It looks good but wanted to ask for some advice before we run this in production (and yes we tested this in test/lab but wanted to be 100% we are not missing other scenarios). The goal is to remove mailboxes that has .local extension. Please advise. Thank you!!

foreach($i in Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited) {
     $i.EmailAddresses |
       ?{$_.AddressString -like '*@.local'} | %{
          Set-Mailbox $i -EmailAddresses @{remove=$_}
         }

I'm trying to figure out to 'add' a secondary email address (bulk using .csv file) to users (exchange 2010) and leave the current as is (untouched and not by touching x400 and primary email address). Is this correct?

Import-CSV C:\temp\data.csv |
Foreach {Set-Mailbox -Identity $_.DistinguishedName -EmailAddress @{add=$_.AliasEmail}}

***where the CSV has:
Column A = DistinguishedName
Column B = AliasEmail

Hello experts,
I have been trying to test and no dice with this script (provided by another expert in another question that I posted). I wanted to strip away/remove "$" and "!" from the email addresses (as a prerequisite for ADAzure directory sync), and for some reason it just does not work. Can someone please help and provide some light?

$mailboxes = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited | Select-Object Alias,ExchangeGUID,EmailAddresses
foreach ($mailbox in $mailboxes) {

$aliases = $mailbox | select -ExpandProperty EmailAddresses
$aliases -replace "\$|\!",""
Set-Mailbox $mailbox.ExchangeGuid.ToString() -EmailAddresses $aliases
}

We have migrated an email domain xyz.com from an Exchange 2010 server to O365. We have other email domains on this Exchange server. All external email is going fine to mailboxes in O365. Internal email originating from the Exchange server from other domains is not reaching mailboxes in O365 but still reaching their old mailbox on Exchange server.

I have hidden the mailbox of xyz.com's users in Exchange, removed xyz.com as Authorative domain from Exchange server, created a send connector to bypass anti-spam filter and send email destined for xyz.com directly using MX record. But emails from other internal domains are still being recieved only on Exchange server not on  O365

Please advise any steps I can take to troubleshoot further

Thanks

A user has been given full access to an Office 365 shared mailbox and also has full rights to send email from the Office 365 shared mailbox account.

What steps need to be followed to add this shared mailbox account to the user's iPhone X?

This user's primary Office 365 email account (which has full access to the Office 365 shared mailbox account) has already been set up within the iPhone X mail program on the iPhone X.
