Hi,

I have a few accounts on a hosted Exchange platform and they would like to move to Office 365.  In the past, I've just gone to each computer and backed up the profile to PST for each mailbox.  I've performed this migration before from accounts that were originally POP accounts and the users just wanted to migrate email to the new corresponding Office 365 mailboxes.  This was simple as I just used the migration tool in Office 365 and connected it to the IMAP server from their old mail provider and everything came over nicely.  Now, several of the accounts that need to be moved over are hosted Exchange accounts.  Support at Office 365 said that I can use EWS to migrate the data from the hosted Exchange accounts to the new Office 365 mailboxes.  Do you have any experience in migrating a hosted Exchange account over to Office 365 and what is the best/quickest/most reliable way to migrate this data from hosted Exchange to Office 365?  Also, when I backup to PST and get them setup in Office 365, I always hear about it when their autocomplete data doesn't come over as well.  Usually, they say that they're missing all of their contacts when in fact it's the autocomplete data.  Any help is greatly appreciated!

Current primary email - jo@companyb.com

365 Hybrid Migration from Exchange 2010 SP3, rollup 16.   Trying to install HCW but it  throws an error saying I need .net 4.6.2
Of course I know that Exchange 2010 only uses 3.5.  It's unclear though if installing 4.6.2 side by side on one of my mailbox servers
is supported.  The support matrix at https://technet.microsoft.com/library/ff728623(v=exchg.150).aspx indicates it is not supported, but
I assume that means it's not supported on Exchange itself; that doesn't mean you can't install it on an Exchange server for other apps to use.
Can someone provide some clarification?
Also - must HCW run on an Exchange server?  Or can it run on a  plain vanilla member server that doesn't have any Exchange roles?

Thank you

I've been tasked to build a website with an input form for Clients to utilize.  their entries are to be placed in a database for storage, reporting and analysis.  Our company has an Office 365 Business Premium account already so they would like to launch some (or all) the tools from that instance if possible.  

looking for suggestions on the tool(s) to utilize, then webinars / classes to assist with the design and implementation.  All thoughts and ideas to assist are certainly appreciated.  Just beginning this search and drafting a plan and budget to proceed.

Outlook 2013's auto-archive function appears to have archived some of the items out of one archive file into another, and simply deleted other items out of the first archive file. How do I tell auto-archive to not do this?

Last week I reorganized my archived emails into 3 pst files:
 archive-1.pst
 archive-2.pst
 archive-3.pst
In outlook, I set the auto- archive file to archive-3.pst and updated my mailbox's folders (Inbox, Deleted items and Sent items) to use the default.

This morning, outlook's auto-archive function kicked off. The archive files archive-2.pst and archive-3.pst were open in outlook when auto-archive kicked off. The archive-3.pst file became much larger (from 200k to ~2GB) than I expected. Almost all of the items that were in archive-2.pst (~6GB) are gone. So it appears that the auto-archive function archived some mail from archivefile2 into archivefile3, and deleted other mail from archivefile2.

To put it mildly, this is not what I wanted. Why did auto-archive do this?

I am trying to move our folder redirections to OneDrive for Business.  I'm having an issue with having to auto provision every user.  If I'm reading this right, it says the user has to login to office365 portal online first.  When I check users who have not done that, it just says "OneDrive is not provisioned for this user".  Does anyone have experience with doing this?

I created a content type whose parent is a document.  I then created a document library and in the advanced settings enabled content management of content types for the new document library.  I then went to the library settings wanting to add the new content type for the library and there is no add content type to allow me to use this new content type.

I am running in Office365.

My client (nonprofit) organization is using Office365 to host their email. One, and only one, individual is having problems sharing a calendar with her supervisor.  Supervisor receives "Error while preparing to send sharing message." when sending sharing message to worker. Supervisor is able to share Calendar with other staff. All staff are using Outlook 2010.

If I delete and recreate worker's email account - to try and troubleshoot this issue - will she lose email that has been sent/received in Outlook?

Any other troubleshooting suggestions? Again, this is a singular issue - not a Policy issue.

Thanks!

Strangest thing we've seen installing Office 365. Willing to pay for this if someone can find a resolution. Moved client to Office 365 when Outlook stopped sending emails. NDR report shows IP 68.203.26.92 is involved when the emails bounce. Note, they do not bounce all the time. Further investigation shows the IP is blocked by Time Warner (now Spectrum), the entire block of Class C 68.203.0.0 are blocked.
TW Policy
Time Warner / Spectrum useless as always, frustrating, last tech I spoke with her child was crying in the background and all she could say was, "we don't block our customers emails".

Not sure how to go about this other than place my client back on an exchange server and manage their email this way. This is not what they want or expected after making the decision to go to Office 365.

Microsoft washed their hands of this, simply stated it's outside the scope of support they can provide.

Hi Experts,

I'm trying to create a powershell script, with a for loop to pull a list of users from a list and get it into a .csv file for a list of users to export Office 365 licenses.

The script I have is only outputting the last user in the list I have.  

Can anyone help with this?

$list = import-csv .\list.csv 

foreach ($User in $List) 
{
Get-MSOLUser -UserPrincipalName $User.userprincipalname | where {$_.isLicensed -eq $true} |select DisplayName,userprincipalname,islicensed,{$_.Licenses.AccountSkuId}| Export-CSV .\O365UserList.csv –NoTypeInformation 
}

Open in new window

I am new admin in a hybrid environment on 2010 on premise exchange and Office 365. This organization is slowly moving users to O365.
The organization has created my logon as global admin and mailbox on inhouse exchange and it is working fine internally.

Issue is when I try to login to Web O365 using my global admin account I get an error:

Selected user account does not exist in tenant 'Compnay Name' and cannot access the application '4345a7b9-9a63-4910-a426-35363201d503' in that tenant. The account needs to be added as an external user in the tenant first. Please use a different account.

What do I need to do on my account in AD / exchange in order to be able to login to O365 as global admin ?

( Sorry new to O365 and can use some help )

Thanks

In our Sharepoint site, we have 2 lists.
One we'll call list A (which is the master list) and list B (which is almost the same list, but with less fields).

  • List A is only accessible by a small group of persons (let's call the group G).
  • List B is accessible to everybody.

Our workflow is structured in such way that when you create an element in List B, it gets copied in List A and deleted from List B. The goal is to enable anyone to create entries in List A, but with limited access to certain fields.
If a user of group G creates an element in List B, the workflow works perfect (since the user has "contribute" access on List A, being member of group G).
But if any user NOT member of group G creates an element in List B, the workflow doesn't work, because it uses the same credentials as the user logged in who doesn't have "contribute" access on List A.

My question is :
Can we and how easy is it to impersonnate another users account in Sharepoint in a workflow process? The goal would be to impersonnate a generic user account that would have "contribute" access on List A and use that account just to make the copy on List A.

My second question is :
If it's not possible to impersonnate (or if it's not a good practice for security matters), how could I manage such a situation?

Thanks,
Claude

Hi there,

We have an issue within an Office 365 Hybrid environment, where we are unable to remove/overwrite the Microsoft Online Email Routing Address (username@<domain>.onmicrosoft.com) for a user that has had a name change.

Within ADSI edit, the Microsoft Online Email Routing Address entry contains the new entry, however, within Azure AD and Exchange Online, it has created the new address alongside the old one:

old_username@<domain>.onmicrosoft.com
newusername@<domain>.onmicrosoft.com

I cannot remove the old entry directly from Azure AD/Exchange Online as all changes have to be made on-prem.

To make matters worse, another user has started with the same name as the old name of the other user, resulting sync conflicts.

Is there any way to remove the old @<domain>.onmicrosoft.com address? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers in advance.

we are running exchange online and onprem however we have all mailboxes migrated
we still keep on prem exchange for management relay etc
when we create a new shared mailbox online it cant receive external email and when users are given delegate access they cant open it in outlook and the inbox cant expand
the only way it works is to create the shared mailbox on prem then migrate it to the cloud
this is a lot of extra work and time
is there a better way
can this just be created online

I have a client where we are changing email providers to Outlook in Office 365. The existing email is set up as IMAP. In Outlook, I exported the IMAP emails to a PST, deleted the account, created the new Hosted Exchange account in Outlook 2016, and then imported the saved PST file into Exchange. Initially, all the IMAP emails were hidden, but I researched that and found how to adjust the view and IMAP filter to show all emails, including the imported IMAP emails, and all seemed fine. However, I now see that the imported IMAP emails, although showing up in Outlook, do not sync, do not show in OWA, and are not imported into the Exchange account set up in their phones.

I'm assuming these emails are still marked as IMAP files and are not 'syncable' in Exchange. If this is the case, how do I make them sync and behave just like files created in Exchange?

I'm really surprised at he complexity of converting an IMAP account into Exchange. It seems to me the conversion process should be much easier, faster, and more automated than it is. But at this point, we're almost done, and I just need to get those imported emails syncing properly. Any suggestions?

I have a folder that is missing in a shared mailbox.  Is this recoverable?  I am using Office 365.

I have a customer using Office 365 and Outlook 2013.  Customer's Outlook was configured with a generic email address receptionist@companyname.com.  Eventually we changed the primary exchange email address to employeename@companyname.com and made receptionist@companyname.com an alias.  The issue we are having is the Outlook name in the left menu tree still shows receptionist@companyname.com.  The end users wishes to see the correct email address.  I know we can recreate the Outlook profile but was wondering if there is a way to just rename it.

We have a user that is using Outlook 2016 as part of Office 365 with Exchange Online.  He has sent us a screen shot showing where about ten emails from a sender are marked out (strikethrough).  On a iMAP setup this means marked for deletion, but I don't believe that applies to an Exchange server.  Any ideas on why this happened?

Can someone help me in regards to MS 365 Password Policy.

I know i can set a password policy on 365. Pretty simple to do, but would this also apply to the global admin/owner account also?

I would like everyone's password in the 365 domain to request change at a certain date. Doing research and testing on powershell, i can see that the global admin/owner account does not have a value when i process the Get-MSOLUser | Select UserPrincipalName, PasswordNeverExpire . It is blank.

I know i can set this manually by running a set script in Powershell but there must be a reason why MS decided not to include it. Quite silly to have it not changeable in my opinion...

your help is greatly appreciated.
