Office 365 is a group of software plus services subscriptions that provides productivity software and related services to its subscribers. Office 365 allows the use of Microsoft Office apps on Windows and OS X, provides storage space on Microsoft's cloud storage service OneDrive, and grants 60 Skype minutes per month. Office 365 includes e-mail and social networking services through hosted versions of Exchange Server, Skype for Business Server, SharePoint and Office Online, integration with Yammer, as well as access to the Office software. All of Office 365's components can be managed and configured through an online portal; users can be added manually, imported from a CSV file, or Office 365 can be set up for single sign-on with a local Active Directory using Active Directory Federation Services.

At this point I'm getting familiar with this stuff.

Our customer has a Microsoft 365 Business order and ultimately we wan't to use AutoPilot to help delivering laptops for offshore workers. The Win 2016 Server domain Dir Sync is already working as well as password writeback via Azure Active Directory Premium P1 order.

I have managed to upload device csv to M365 but don't have any Device Groups there because don't know if I need them.

1. From literature I noticed that M365 includes Win 10 Business licenses. Currently the Domain Computers has OEM (HP) Win 10 Pro installed. Should I update the Win 10 Pro to Win 10 Business and how?
2. What would be the next major steps in order to better utilize the AutoPilot?

BTW, the customer has apx 50 employees and apx. 5-10 Offshore Workers.

Current State:
1 Forest/1 Domain
AD Connect to Office 365 (syncing password hashes)
All on-premises Lync and Exchange servers have been decommissioned in the environment

Most users have attributes like this populated - looks like this from old on-premises (However, many are synced to 365):
msRTCSIP-DeploymentLocator
msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled
msRTCSIP-InternetAccessEnabled
msRTCSIP-OptionFlags
msRTCSIP-PrimaryHomeServer
msRTCSIP-PrimaryUserAddress
msRTCSIP-UserEnabled
msExchShadowProxyAddresses

Q: Can I clear the above attributes without issue?

The reason I ask is I would like to clear the above attributes when I implement the following changes (which is the actual project at hand):

UserPrincipalName attribute    
from foo@contoso.com to foo@fabrikam.com

Mail attribute    
from foo@contoso.com to foo@fabrikam.com

ProxyAddresses attribute - the PrimarySMTPAddress
from SMTP:foo@contoso.com to SMTP:foo@fabrikam.com

ProxyAddresses attribute - the old PrimarySMTPAddress will become the secondary
from SMTP:foo@contoso.com to smtp:foo@contoso.com

ProxyAddresses attribute - the SIP Address
from SIP:foo@contoso.com to SIP:foo@fabrikam.com

We are migrating to Office 365 Professional Plus, and I am having a difficult time trying to figure out the best way to migrate 200+ user machines.
Currently they have Office Professional Plus 2016 installed because of Software Assurance program, but in order to install Office 365 Client, all I can seem to find is Click 2 Run version.
Our users do not have local admin rights, so is there a way to install Office 365 Client without going through Click 2 Run?
Also, one of our concerns is, when migration happens, how do we handle user-specific settings such as Outlook Quick Parts, Macros, and auto-completes?  Is preserving User Program Data folder enough, or are the more to be done?
Please advise.

I understand that Microsoft's Support and Recovery Assistant (SaRA) is able to troubleshoot Outlook for MAC versions 2016 and 2011.

Is it possible to install and run SaRA on a MAC client? Is there a .dmg available for download?

Thanks in advance for the guidance. I've been unable to find an answer.

Undeliverable message when accepting internal calendar invites. We migrated to hosted Exchange from on-premise earlier this year and the issue is still occurring on this users profile.

What I've tried:
Uninstall/reinstall Office 2016
Rebuilt profile
Followed steps from hosting provider: https://kb.intermedia.net/Article/2344

However, his screenshot shows 'Email type' as 'S', not SMTP. This is only affecting internal meeting invites, he can email them directly with no issue. Screenshot attached.Opening email properties

I have an Office 365 email address which has 3 different alias's. I check it with Outlook 2016 on my desktop computer. I don't see any differentiation when the emails come in to Outlook to know which alias they actually showed up to. Is there something I could do in the O365 console that would differentiate them when they come in to Outlook?

Hello Experts,

We have office 365 and hosted exchange through Godaddy.  Our end users are not allowed to know email passwords to keep anyone from accessing them from off site.  The issue we are having is that a few of our workstations ask for email passwords every single day and sometimes more.  We are getting nothing from Godaddy for a solution.  Any suggestions or ideas on what can be done to stop this inconvenience?

Thank you,

Hi Experts,

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm trying to get a Office 365 license report that will send an email when my license count falls below a certain number for my ENTERPRISEPACK and ENTERPRISEPACKWITHOUTPROPLUS licenses.

Can anyone point me in the direction of any powershell scripts to do this?

I found this script, which will do what I need and modified the fields, however, getting and error when replacing "CloudServicesO365" with my own tenant name:

$office365TenantsPath = $Context.GetWellKnownContainerPath("CloudServicesO365")

$limit = 5 # TODO: modify me
# E-mail settings
$to = "recipient@domain.com" # TODO: modify me
$subject = "List of Office 365 plans that have $limit or less licenses available" # TODO: modify me
$reportHeader = "<h2>List of Office 365 plans that have $limit or less licenses available</h2>"
$htmlTableColumns = "
<table border='1'>
    <tr>
        <th>License Plan</th>
        <th>Total Licenses</th>
        <th>Unused Licenses</th>
    </tr>
" # TODO: modify me
$reportFooter = "<hr /><p><i>Please do not reply to this e-mail, it has been sent to you for notification purposes only.</i></p>" # TODO: modify me

# Find all tenants
$office365TenantsPath = $Context.GetWellKnownContainerPath("CloudServicesO365")
$searcher = $Context.BindToObject($office365TenantsPath)
$searcher.SearchFilter = "(objectClass=adm-O365Tenant)"
$searcher.SearchScope = "ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE"
$searcher.PageSize = 500

try
{
    $searchResultIterator =

In office 365, users' calendar has a default permission to all users with accessrights set to AvailbilityOnly so they can open other user's calendar and see their availability (Free/Busy). I checked the permission using Powershell and it is set correctly. Users are able to open other user's calendar both in OWA and outlook for windows but when trying to open any calendar in outlook for mac it says that it doesn't have a permission. Is this an Outlook Mac limitation? the issue can be fixed by manually assigning permission to each user but this is not convenient because newly created users have to setup the permission manually.

Hi Experts,

     I have a worksheet that consists of numbers in Column A, 100 rows to be exact.  What I'd like to do is have a formula that first looks at the numbers in column D, and then checks Column A to see if any one of those numbers are present.  If the formula detects any of the numbers that were noted in column D, it then notates what numbers it found in Column B.  I've attached an example of what I'm describing.  Any help with this is GREATLY APPRECIATED!

In the office we use office 2013 and when we set up our outlook accounts we connect to exchange server and it will fill out the rest of the information. One user has recently gotten a microsoft surface and office 365. I try to set up the outlook account as an exchange account but it wont let me. Then when I set up as IMAP it will work. When it is set up this way they can't access the public folders we share in outlook. Can someone help explain why this is or why I am unable to set up the account as exchange. Thank you in advance for your help

I would like a powershell script to check the Sync Issues folder for our Office 365 accounts.

I am really green at powershell, but am learning.
The script below will run, but will not display the mailbox owner's name. It just shows a blank column where the name should be.

$users = (get-mailbox -resultsize unlimited).UserPrincipalName
 $report = @()
 foreach ($user in $users)
 {$user = $_| Select DisplayName,
 $inboxstats = Get-MailboxFolderStatistics $user | Where {$_.FolderPath -eq “/Sync Issues”} |Select FolderandSubFolderSize
 $mbObj = New-Object PSObject
 $mbObj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name “Folder Type” -Value $inboxstats.FolderType
 $mbObj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name “Size (Mb)” -Value $inboxstats.FolderandSubFolderSize
 $report += $mbObj
 }
 $report |export-csv c:\temp\test4.csv

I had read that there was going to be a Synch tool to synchronize local AD to Office 365, without having Exchange installed in the local AD.  This tool was supposed to be just for allowing Password Synchronization.

To further explain, customer migrated from local Exchange to O365 and had AADC installed to synchronize users and passwords, along with Exchange information up to O365.  There are two options in regards to local Exchange: leave an Exchange instance running locally for continuing with user/password synchronization or, break the synchronization with O365 so that you can remove Exchange locally.

Once you've broken the synch, the passwords between local AD and O365 can/will get eventually become different, as O365 no longer reflects local AD.  Once Exchange is gone locally, you can't (or aren't supposed to??) re-establish the synch using AADC again.

Has anyone heard of this replacement Synch tool?

Need help embedding code in Office 365 SharePoint Modern Pages.

Ultimately, I am trying to add two buttons to a Modern SharePoint page.
The only means I have to do so is using the 'Embed Code'

Image of Embed Code
Image of Embed Code Web Part
Image of where I enter the iFrame code to reference my file.
I cannot enter code directly.  So I created a html file with the code for the buttons.

Test-embed.html

However, this is not working either.  I have tried uploading the html file to a standard document library and the Site Assets, but embed code does not work.
I have tested the html file and I know that it works. I just can't get it into SharePoint in a form that it will be accepted and work.

(Even when I try opening the file directly (in document library)  it only shows the code of the page instead of opening the page. But this is besides the point as I can't get the
embed code web part to accept anything I enter.). Yes, I have tried using iFrames and links to the file in the document library.

Clearly, I am missing something.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi guys

We are currently creating a roadmap for transitioning to Office 365 with Exchange online from our current Exchange 2010 environment. We keep being told that to do this properly, we should ideally create a Hybrid environment. We have approximately 1200 mailboxes and that's spread across 5 Exchange servers across the UK, US and Hong Kong.

Can someone explain why we would need a Hybrid environment? And what are the benefits of having that sort of environment instead of transitioning straight away to Office 365 into the cloud?

Thanks for helping

I am migrating a customer email from Rackspace 365 to Microsoft Office 365 ... but how I can transfer the archives and all the journal history from Rackspace to Online Archives?

Hi Experts,

Had a general question, running Outlook 2010 in cached mode, have exchange online.  I know the max recommended size of an .ost file is 50 GB until you see performance issues.

Trying to identify the problem mailboxes that may have large .ost or mailboxes.  Is the mailbox size "usually" a good indicator or .ost size, or can this be a good criteria to head off issues?

I can report on mailbox sizes, but .ost sizes are much harder to report on.

Thanks!

I need to learn more about certificates and internal certification authorities as well as:

1. Submitting and completing certificate requests to external certificate authorities

2. Assigning external certificates to an internal Exchange 2016 server that is integrated with Office 365.


1. What are some good training resources for learning these things?

2. What are some good books that teach these things?

3. What are some good websites for learning these things?

As people have suggested here, I am playing around with ODFB, but have some questions:

When I share (right click on a folder under ODFB in Windows Explorer and choose share, it defaults to anyone with the link can edit. Typically, I want to create a link for people to get to the files, but not change / edit. Is there a way to change that default?

If I went through those steps to share repeatedly, I'd get different URLs to share the files or folders, right? (unlike a file share in windows of something like \\server\shared that stays the same... you could create several shares pointing to the same place).  

Is there a way to see what shared URLs have been created, what they actually share and who they give access to?  And maybe even last time they were accessed?  If you wanted to revoke a 'anyone with the link can access the file' link, how would you do that?  Delete the share link? rename the file?

I have 2 onedrive folders in windows explorer - OneDrive and OneDrive - Username   the first one has no files.  Is that the company 1TB of data?   Is there a way to confirm that's the company space?  And / or how would I get to that in the office website?

THANKS!

Email to a client is being delivered with wingdings font and not in Chinese as it's supposed to. The email originates from their partner who reports that there's nothing unusual their side.

Whole email message including the subject field is in wingdings (mostly question marks) although it should be showing in simplified Chinese. The same issue is seen on OWA and not just the local Outlook client. Client is on O365 running Outlook 2013.

I have tried changing language on OWA and Outlook to English and also tried changing the encoding language on Outlook with no positive effect.

Does this indicate a language error? I have read some people saying that this may happen due to the sender using a wingdings emoticon. Or could this possibly be an issue on the sender's side?

Hi
We have exchange 2007 and installed exchange 2013 and doing a Hybrid migration.
We are changing the email domain name to a new domain.
I was told by the implementation engineer that the old domains will also be specified on the 0365.

So any one sending an email to the old email domain address will be forwarded to new email address.

I am planning to migrated all the 200 mailboxes and finally apply the address policies.
So I have taken down time of 20 days.

For user A – Now If an out of office is set up on a mail box with the old email. If someone sends an email to user A before address policies are applied, will the out of office work?

Please suggest
Thanks

We use Exchange Online Protection for spam filtering Inbound and Outbound from our On-Premise Exchange hosting dozens of domains for customers. We are getting reports from end-users that their emails are being delayed and not received by the recipient for several minutes or hours. Running a message trace in Office 365 shows the following 'defer' message. These emails are being delivered to dozens of domains and recipients are not reporting issues with their setup.

Reason: [{LED=450 4.4.316 Connection refused [Message=Socket error code 10061] [LastAttemptedServerName=domain.com] [LastAttemptedIP=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:25] [CO1NAM05FT049.eop-nam05.prod.protection.outlook.com]};{MSG=Socket error code 10061};{FQDN=domain.com};{IP=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx};{LRT=7/23/2018 6:58:29 PM}]. OutboundProxyTargetIP: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx OutboundProxyTargetHostName: domain.com

This issue happened a couple month ago and eventually corrected. I have had a ticket opened with Office 365 for over a week now with no help from the level 1 tech I am dealing with. Anyone have an ideas on what is going on? Or any experience getting Office 365 to look at their setup?
