Security Alert outlook.office365.com message pop up all the time.
 We are receiving this same Security Alert randomly for many users.  We are running Outlook o365 2016  and Office 2013 on Windows 10. Any idea?

I'm having certificate issues with outlook 2013.
Outlook is complaining that the name of the certificate is not the name of the site outlook is connecting to.
When i go to the o365 portal and i check my DNS records everything looks fine, there are no problems with the OWA.
I just can't get the outlook client to give me the correct certificate.

I'm trying to connect to o365 sharepoint (site is xxxxxx.sharepoint.com/sites/xxxxxx/xxxxxx/home.aspx) using powershell.
I've attempted to use the instructions outlined at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/sharepoint/sharepoint-online/connect-sharepoint-online?view=sharepoint-ps
but it isn't working for me.

If I try $orgName.sharepoint.com - it tells me it's not a tenant admin site.

If I try the above url, it states there is no web named by that, but it appends /_vti_bin/sites.asmx to my url.
Any ideas what I might be missing?

Hi

I have about 40 rules in Outlook 2016/Office 365 to sort the various emails I receive from different processes.

I have issues with 1 of the rule. This rule just doesn't run automatically when a message hits my inbox but runs perfectly if I use "Run Rules Now...".

As you can see here, the rule is really simple.

What I have tried so far:
  • Delete and recreate the rule (many times
  • The rule is the first in the list
  • simplify the rule
  • Recreate the folder where the message has to be moved
  • Create the rule directly from Office 365 (instead of Outlook 2016)

I have just migrated a company from a poor imap mail from one.com to Office365.
Before doing so, I exported all users mail/folders to PST files.
After moving to Office365, I imported these PST-files.

After doing so, I can see the folder structure, in some cases showing the number of un-read mails, HOWEVER the folders appears empty!

If I log into office.com accessing the users Outlook everything is ok??
It has been more than 24 hours before importing, so this is NOT a common missing syncronization.

Any suggestions?

I have just migrated a customer from simple imap mail to Office 365. Multiple of these users has more than one acount.
They have their personal mail eg. user@company.com but some need other mail accounts like invoice@company.com.

The problem is that Outlook 2016/365 wont Allow the extra acount but says something like “we appoligize but another user already logged into the organisation from this computer”

What Can I do to accomplish this?

I'm a current office 365 subscriber interested in purchasing more One Drive for Business storage space (above the 1TB limit that I currently have) to store Veeam Server 2016 backups in the cloud.

What website resources are available that describe how much more it will cost to purchase additional Office 365 One Drive for Business storage space?

We have a Windows Active Directory Domain with about 70 users.  We currently use Office 365 for E-Mail with no on premise server and about 70 users.  I would like to sync my Active Directory up to Office 365 so we can use Duo Multi Factor Authentication.  My concern is what happens since everyone has an account on both and many have different passwords.  My understanding is once we sync up we will have a single sign on for both.  If I activate the sync will peoples E-mail stop working and look for their network password?

Two emails accounts (user a & user b) have been migrated to Office 365. They can send the emails to all users on their on-premise Exchange server with the exception of one user (user c).  

The Office 365 users said the log files show the email has been delivered but user C cannot see them in the outlook box. He looked at the email on the server using OWA and the emails were not there either. This is only impacting this user on-premise. Other users are receiving the emails.

I also confirmed that the Office 365 users are getting delivery receipt.

In Skype for Business Server 2015, Is there a way to disable clients from retrieving location information from the LIS/Secondary LIS every time the client registers with the server? I want to prevent the client from performing a HELD request to get location information when it first registers to the server. Is this possible with the on-prem server?

I would like the opinion of experts, please.

I'm on a client where it already has an endpoint created, but the address that is pointed to fixed ip, has a very low bandwidth.

Can I create the type record of DNS type A and CNAME to another address that I created for an ipfix of a greater band?

My idea is not to tinker with your current record, and just make the migration better from perfomace.

I had to configure ADFS server for chrome

 I ran this command :

Import-module adfs  ( by opening windows powershell and not azure windows power shell

 2)Set-AdfsProperties –WIASupportedUserAgents @("MSAuthHost/1.0/In-Domain","MSIE 6.0","MSIE 7.0","MSIE 8.0","MSIE 9.0","MSIE 10.0","Trident/7.0", "MSIPC","Windows Rights Management Client","MS_WorkFoldersClient","=~Windows\s*NT.*Edge","Mozilla/5.0","Edge/12")

 3) reboot


everything worked fine

but there is one workday  mailbox xxx@domain.com which before running the command , IT work day people used chrome and then typed portal.office.com, it used to ask the email address of shared mailbox and then password  and user were getting directed to that shared mailbox ,this mailbox is not allowed to be configured in their respective outlook

but now when they type the same workday mailbox email address when they type portal.office.com and put in email address , it is doing 2 things

1) not asking the password
2) user instead of getting into that workday mailbox are getting apps page on 365 portal and when they open outlook, their mailbox is opening up instead of that shared mail box

hope I put the question correctly , so question is that shared mail box is not opening or showing up

from my personal computer when i type portal.office.com and put the workday mailbox email address it gives me a prompt sts.domain.com and username and pasword

but when i am in my network the above issue is happening

I have a SharePoint list with two columns that I want to multiply (QTY - numeric and Unit price - currency).  I want the result to go in a third column (_Line total - currency).  The SharePoint list Flow is "When an item is created or modified."  This used to be pretty easy with SharePoint Designer but because I'm new to Flow, it seems overly complicated.  A calculated column is out because I want to use the third column to group and sum in list views.

Here is the expression I'm using but it errors out when run:
mul(triggerBody()?['QTY'],triggerBody()?['Unit price'])

Open in new window


Update list item flow

Hello EE!
In Office 365 there is MS Teams and within there is a plugin for Outlook that allows the scheduling of Teams Meetings. Everything was working fine and able to schedule a meeting and such, but recently in random users Outlook the plugin drops off and is not able to be added back in. I have the .dll's in the correct place, I start Teams before Outlook, I run Teams as admin, and yet the plugin will not populate on the ribbon. Any suggestions to try and I will give feedback as such. Thank you in advance!

Hey guys,
I am wondering if anyone out there knows of a way to change which account a contact is syncing with on Iphone?  The situation that I am in now is that I have a user who is a delegate to the CEO of this company.  She has both her email as well as his email added to her phone. She put a personal contact in and it synced to the CEO's phone.  She also expressed a concern about losing her contacts upon leaving the company after her email is removed.  She also does not want to turn off the contacts for either Office 365 account as she wants to be able to look up contacts for the CEO as well as for herself.  Basically we want to be able to do have these people create their own personal contacts that do no sync with Exchange accounts, while still being able to download the contacts from Exchange and work with them, which I don't think would be unreasonable, but I cannot seem to make that happen on Iphone.  

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I am using Exchange 365:

- I can reset users password in office 365 through the web portal. Then I have to manually change the password in outlook 2013 settings.
- Is it a better way of doing this, because I have 200 user that used outlook 2013. (basically when I change the password in Office 365, I want it change in outlook automatically)

Hi

I installed office 365 on a RDS server straight after I installed the box - unfortunately while the regional settings were on their default US setting, I usually change to UK. Now every user that logs on has default paper size as Letter instead of A4, every printer does the same. How can I fix this?

I have changed the RDS server now to be UK region but any new user still gets created with US settings. There are 15 users set up on this system and, although not in production yet, I have logged is as every user and set up their profile and they have the US setup.

Can this be fixed if I delete every user profile, uninstall and then reinstall office 365?

Thanks very much.

Has anyone had success performing a tenant to tenant migration from SharePoint Online to Office 365?

I have ran across several articles stating that FastTrack for Microsoft doesn't allow tenant to tenant migration.  Other than Metalogix and Sharegate are there other 3rd party tools that others have used with success for migrating SharePoint?

What is the best - most efficient way of moving an existing Office Tenant - domain into another Office 365 Tenant.

Scenario is we purchased a company and want to incorporate within our own setup.

Also - does Mailboxes etc move with Tenant or do they need to be moved independently.
Their setup - is completely in the cloud.

thanks

I have an on-premise exchange user setup in outlook and I have a different Office 365 user setup in Skype on the same computer. Every time I open Skype client I get an error "Exchange needs your credentials. Until then, you might see outside info in skype for business"

I believe this is because outlook and skype have different account. I tried to disable the "sync contact info between skype for business and exchange" in the skype setting but did not work.

Hi, is there a way in Office365/online Exchange to set a rule to delete messages with a particular subject line after 3 days for ALL users? I think I can do this with an outlook macro locally but would rather do it in o365/online exchange centrally for all users.

We have a file that was updated on the server.  It's an Excel spreadsheet.  The file date shows 9/18/18.  If I open the file on the server or at most users desks, it shows the updates recently done (we have the last user who modified the file put in a footer with their initials and the date they modified the file (9/13/18).
There are 2 users that, when they open the file in Excel (local copy), it shows an older version of the file (the initials inside the file and the date are older).  The date on the file from their Windows Explorer shows as 9/18/18 = correct.
I can't find any way for them to open the correct file.  It shows as the same file but once open - its the older version.

All the users are using Office 365 = currently Excel 2016
All users are running Windows 10
I clear caching folders - ones I could find on the users' local computer
I ran an Office online repair as opposed to the quick repair
I ran Windows updates - there were updates but non fixed the issue

I'm stuck

Dear experts, We have Slack onboarded in our environment and trying to integrate it with our Outlook (currently 2010), and will eventually move to Office 365/Outlook 2016 client / Exchange 2010 for free/busy calendar for unified presence. Just curious how you guys do any of our calendar integration with your other SaaS applications and what are the common issues you have encountered.

Thank you!
