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.

Hi,

I'm in process to migrate my users mailboxes from Exchange 2007 to O365.

I set a Send Connector rule to send all emails for migrated recipients to O365 MX server. Now  I got a msg from O365 like:

mail.protection.outlook.com #550 5.7.1 Service unavailable, Client host [x.x.x.x] blocked using Spamhaus. To request removal from this list see http://www.spamhaus.org/lookup.lasso

Why my Hub Transport is considered as spam? How can I whitelist my server in O365?

Thanks

Hi,
I am aware that it is not a technical question and I really appreciate any help.
I am looking for a book or training video for full hybrid implementation of Exchange 2013 and Office 365 with Azure AD Connect.
I have a good understanding of Exchange and Office 365 and looking for a in dept training material.
I tried Udemy but it is not up to date.

AD Azure connect is syncing the local AD and Azure.  All mailboxes have been migrated.   My understand is that we have to purchase as many CALs as number of mailboxes we have, no matter where the mailboxes are stored (on premise or Office 365)   As we no longer run anything on the on premise Exchange I would have liked to decommission the server.

But it looks like we need to run at least one one premise Exchange to keep syncing some attributes.

Workaround is not supported by Microsoft.  

Is there something we could think of to get rid of the on premise Exchange?  

Thanks

Hello experts,
We are in the process of putting down our file management strategy using OneDrive for Business (Office 365), and wanted to use it for home drive (user files), and Sharepoint site files.
And wanted to find out from you what things we need to consider for an effective planning.

**FYI, We are currently in Windows 7 and planning to move to Windows 10
**Sharepoint will be hybrid (on-prem and in the cloud)

Thanks!

I have Office 365 installed and am using OneDrive on my work account. I have shared a folder which I can see when using OneDrive in a browser, and I would like to sync this to my desktop. For example, with dropbox if i share a folder it will show in that persons file explorer, they dont have to log in on a browser, can I achieve this functionality with OneDrive?

Question, when moving mailboxes to Office 365 (Exchange Online), the mailboxes don't seem to have AuditEnabled $True on the mailboxes, although the Org. Config is set to enable it by default.  

Get-OrganizationConfig | Select AuditDisabled

AuditDisabled
-------------
        False

Any ideas as to why? we basically want AuditEnabled $True on by default as posted here: Link without us having to run the command manually after every mailbox is migrated.

Get-Mailbox -Identity Joe@contoso.com | FL *audit*

AuditEnabled     : False
AuditLogAgeLimit : 90.00:00:00

Thanks

Running SharePoint 2016 Standard.  Build an Approval workflow, after the last approval occurs it seems to remain running.  I thought that the workflow step Transition Stage to End of Workflow will end it.  Do I need to set the workflow status to Completed?

I'm looking at Votiro, Proofpoint & Israel email security products
to reduce spam, emails from bad reputation IP, emails with
malicious attachments & URL.

What are the features/criteria to assess or look out for?

Esp if I'm on O365.

a) can link to SpamHaus, RBL etc to get bad reputation IP?
b) offers CDR, sandboxing?
c) can claw back malicious emails from users' mailbox once
    Sandboxing completed analysis that an email or attachmt
    is malicious (Proofpoint has one such  product)
d) can withstand email blasting (eg: 80000/minute)
e) in the event the device has an issue, the ease / turnaround
    time to disable it (without changing MX record)
f) allows us to specify IOCs (bad reputation IP obtained from
    threat intelligence or specific payload's hash)
g) the ability to integrate with DLP products : is this supposed
    to be a function of O356 Exchange Online or the filter
    device (as usually such device will be registerd in MX):
    I recall Proofpoint used to be able to integrate with a
    network DLP Codegreen or am I mistaken?
h) ... help add on ...

We have Office 365 and Outlook 2016.  

We have one Exchange email account (example: user@domain.com) with several aliases (example: user.lastname@domain.com) associated with it.

Is there anyway to find and sort in Outlook (or the back end of Office 365) to identify the emails sent to a particular alias?

In my research, it all seems to show as (user@domain.com) and even looked in the headers but I am thinking maybe I missed it or it is somewhere I didn't look yet?

Hi experts,

I am now using O365 in the cloud, which includes SharePoint. SharePoint, in my view, is simply the least undervalued Microsoft application there is. We use it every day as our home page. But, we do not use it to collaborate or do web sites, or edit pages together. We simply use it, well, simply. For instance, this is basically all we need:

Documents
Forms
Contacts
Letter template
Consults
Calendar
Websites
Vacation requests
Computer issues

We do have a couple of sites that employees are invited to built after I show them a little where they can organize things, is not accessible by the other employees, and is restricted to stay on the network only.

There is also an announcements section, which is only used for one thing.

We have over 500 contacts, and fortunately I was able to migrate those over. And, I was able to migrate over the documents and forms as well. Those are the top three on the ones at the left. Everything that is on SharePoint is on the launch column.

I would really like to complete this as it requires users to be connect to SharePoint to another subnet which takes a bit of a workaround.

So, this brings me to my question/request. I just find it difficult to create the companyweb. When I am working with it, at times, by blind luck I am able to see the layout from a whole different perspective. Maybe from the view they will have? I am not sure if I am using one address to get there, and they and even I will use another. …

Is there a way to rename a folder you are sharing with several others in OneDrive. The shared folder shows up as the user's name, followed by Shared with Everyone? Or is it possible to hide/remove the user's name from the share?

We have two Parallels (RDS) servers that are getting "out of license" errors on published Office365.  We are working with Parallels and Microsoft and no one has an answer.  Microsoft says we have it configured correctly and Parallels says it is not their issue.  Both parties sent us the Office365 2016 deployment guide.  We own the correct licenses.

Hey,

Would like some steer on the following situation please.

We have a hosted exchange environment that we have ZERO access to bar mail.

We would like to migrate away to Office365. (We COULD do on-prem exchange if this makes it more reliable - but a harder sell - so would prefer 365).

Existing environment with Outlook 2010, 2013 and 2016.

We can get a PST export and could do an import via PS etc... for EO (hundred's of users).

However, how can we zero provision to the clients? Windows server 2012 r2 and 2016. Windows 7, 8 and 10 clients. Mix of Office.

Possible method (would need the adviseon this).

a) Get PST's Friday.
b) Change MX record with low TTL already set.
c) Already provisioned mailboxes
d) Import PSTs
e) One mailbox come Monday morning. (They can use OWA through 365 in the interim.)

How do I push for Monday morning the swapping of the old mailbox to the new mailbox automatically. I am aware of ZeroConfigExchange. I don't want to make a new profile as that makes a new autocomplete dat file. And it seems you need to load MSOutlook to generate the new one to then do a copy and rename.

Please advise on best way forward. Again, NO ACCESS to hosted Exchange to PST shipping on drives best option as mailbox utilites I have tried that run as a client are way tooooooo slow.

Many thanks

I have customers using Office 365 that are experiencing issues with the formatting of Excel.  One user creates the spreadsheets for distribution, some employees can view and print them as they were created but some must edit the document or it displays and prints with the top of the next page on the current one.  All of their settings are the same, views, margins, etc.  We have even looked at printing to the printer of the creator but the same issue is there.  What setting(s) are we missing that the users might have set differently?

How to Export / Extract a list of mail box names and alias's etc. from MS Exchange 6.5

We have a very old version of MS Exchange, version 6.5 when came within MS SBS 2003 ( which 15 years later we are moving away from, it has served us very well, and we have been living on a wing and a prayer that we didn’t get hacked on an unsupported platform, phew!. Fair dues to it, it help up through all the MS updates and various attacks. Hopefully o365 is as good)

We are in the process of migration to Office 365.

Other than sitting with a laptop and a spreadsheet in front of the exchange server, is there and faster way of exporting all the exchange user accounts/mail boxes, alias's, who the aliases forward mail to, contacts that are setup as external addresses but do not  have mail boxes, etc.

It would be very helpful.

Thank you.

Any good help would be very much appreciated.

Hello!

Having some issue with Azure AD Sync.
I was playing around with a user that was currently synced.

I moved him to an OU that wasnt synced, in Office365 he got deleted.
I then restored the account in Office365, now hes "In-Cloud"
I moved him back to the correct OU and initialized a "Start-AdSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Initial"

However, he does not get synced, and as of right now he cannot setup a Outlook profile or login to Skype for Business.
Any ideas what i can do?

I want to be able to sync this user.
I want him to be able to login to Skype For Business and Outlook.
OWA works without any problems.

Error message when signing into Skype:
You can’t sign in to Skype for Business Online because the certificate can’t be acquired or validated
