Client is on an O365 exchange environment. Created an "all staff" distribution list with powershell using the following recipient filter:

((RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox') -and (IsMailboxEnabled -eq $true) -and (IsInactiveMailbox -eq $False) -and (RecipientTypeDetails -ne 'RoomMailbox') -and (RecipientTypeDetails -ne 'SharedMailbox') -and (ResourceType -ne 'Room') -and (LastName -eq '*') -and (LastName -ne 'Admin') -and (LastName -ne 'Account'))

If I query the recipients I get all the users I want and none of the users I don't, but when I send mail to that address the message shows it as expanded and it never actually delivers to any users.

One thing of not is that for some reason it ADDS to my recipientfilter, but even then all my recipients show fine and it looks like it's just filtering out system accounts. Here's the finalized filter that O365 uses:

((((((((((((((((((RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox') -and (IsMailboxEnabled -eq 'True'))) -and (IsInactiveMailbox -eq 'False'))) -and (RecipientTypeDetails -ne 'RoomMailbox'))) -and (RecipientTypeDetails -ne 'SharedMailbox'))) -and (ResourceType -ne 'Room'))) -and (LastName -like '*'))) -and (LastName -ne 'Admin'))) -and (LastName -ne 'Account'))) -and (-not(Name -like 'SystemMailbox{*')) -and (-not(Name -like 'CAS_{*')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'MailboxPlan')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'DiscoveryMailbox')) -and (-not(RecipientTypeDetailsValue -eq 'PublicFolderMailbox')) -and …

Hi all,

I have a client's pc with Office 365 Premium. I want to open an excel or word file in SharePoint which gives me an error. I looked into several option and it seems that the office activation is corrupt. See images. When I resubmit the account details it says it's logged on and when I close and open Excel or Word again it again gives these errors. I already tried installing Office again but it won't. I cannot find a solution for this so help is very appreciated.

Hi there,

I'm trying to setup a hybrid configuration with Exchange 2010 and Office 365 and I'm unable to complete the Office 365 Hybrid Configuration Wizard. I seem to have an error completing the wizard and I'm getting an error HCW8001. Looking through the Microsoft documentation, its saying that you need to enable Dirsync.

I've then connected onto the Azure AD shell and typed in Set-MsolDirSyncEnabled -EnableDirSync $true. From the Office 365 Azure AD dashboard, it's saying that AD sync is enabled.

What else can I do to get this part to work?

Regards,
Javier

Hi All,

Can anyone here please share some tips or steps in Group Policy in how to create the Outlook Email signature for each people in different OU ?

For Example:

Domain.com/Users/Accounting --> Email Signature Template ACC1.
Domain.com/Users/IT --> Email Signature Template IT1.
Domain.com/Users/Marketing --> Email Signature Template MRK1.

How to do that based on each OU ?

Note, the users are using various different OS and Office product like:
Operating System: Windows 7 and Windows 10
MS Office: 2010, 2013 and 2016 (some will use 64 bit, but majority is 32 bit)

Any help and guidance will be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,

Hello Experts,

What is the service impact of enabling modern authentication on a non-federated domain/tenant?

Please, elaborate your answer

Consider a hybrid deployment AD On prem / Azure Exchange/Office 365, Azure AD connector to sync to the tenant
0
Hello Experts,

My client runs a hybrid organization with following specs:

On-PREM

Several Windows 2012 R2 DCs
Single-forest/single domain
ADFS internal
WAP servers

All mailboxes in the cloud distributed among to different tenants

Azure AD connector server one for each tenant. Both tenants use same source AD authoritative to sync to the tenant. Some information is synced to Tenant 1, and other information is synced to tenant 2.  

One domain is called companyx.com

For business reasons, they created another UPN suffix that calls for another domain[technically is not a Windows domain],and the name is companyw.com

Azure:

Multiple Windows 2012 R2 DCs
ADFS internal servers [primary server resides in the cloud, secondary internal ADFS servers are on PREM]
Express route between on prem and Azure

The organization uses a domain called companyx.com to sync users/contact/OU to tenant 1, by using AzureADconnectorserver1. This tenant and domain follow the Federated identity model as per link below

https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2014/05/13/choosing-a-sign-in-model-for-office-365/

There are also some OUs /users/ that are also synced to the second tenant for the domain companyw.com.

Moderm Authentication is enabled for the federated domain named companyx.com. The second domain or UPN that also uses same authoritative AD on prem, is not federated for some reason.

Having said that, here are the questions:

Hi

I have an office 365 email account that have full access to 5 email accounts and about 200 GB(20 files) of pst files mounted on it.  The users have about 20GB of email box.  outlook is freezing when I open random emails.  No sure if it is the 20 pst causing the problem.  If i dismounted half of PST and it seems to move freely, not sure if there any documentation that may say having 200 GB mounted PST is a bad idea?  

Noted, have disable the share folder cache mode so the PST does not grow to a outrageous size.  

best regards

Is there any way of setting an Office 365 policy so Outlook 2016 won't automatically delete emails in the deleted items folder after 30 days?

If this can't be done through the Office 365 website portal can it be done through the Power Shell?

I have a hybrid Exchange environment setup (2010 SP3) at myolddomain.com; SSO through ADFS/AADSync is working and a few users migrated into O365 Exchange.

I have a new domain at corp.mynewdomain.com/ADFS is configured/AADSync setup for these users, no Exchange. This is the domain folks will land on.

For AADSync in these two domains, each user is defined by UPN and "appears once in each forest". There is a two-way forest trust setup among the domains.

These two domains sync to the same O365 tenant.

Through a merger I have a 3rd domain: merger.com, no AADSync, no hybrid environment.

I need all mail to converge into mynewdomain.com in hosted Exchange in single tenant.

Plan is to setup hybrid for merger.com, so the mailboxes will show up in O365, using AADSync and ADFS, then migrate on-premise mailboxes to hosted, while UPN for all users is corp.mynewdomain.com

Users are logging into corp.mynewdomain.com at present and using old domain credentials to connect to email at both companies.

Question is how do I get the corp.mynewdomain.com users already synced to O365 to have permissions to the mailboxes in the two other domains? Primary SMTP for each user will remain either olddomain.com or merger.com, respectively

Not sure what my next step should be to make this all fit together.

Hi All,

My Exchange Server 2013 DAG spreads across 5x mailbox servers VM in three different Data Center locations.
So each mailbox servers hold mixed of 2 Active 3 Passive or 3 Active 2 Passive mailbox DB.

After the nightly successful backup, I can see that the some of the current Mailbox databases are mounted on the server that is activation preference 2.
So the database is kept on mounting from one server to another one (changed daily after the successful backup).

Is this the normal behavior of DAG ?
Would there be any impact if I let it automatically failover to one server nightly or keep running on the passive node forever ?

Note here are the settings applied for all the Mailbox Database:

AutoDagExcludeFromMonitoring                        : False
AutoDatabaseMountDial                               : GoodAvailability
DataMoveReplicationConstraint                       : SecondCopy
ReplicationType                                     : Remote

Open in new window


And this is the Cluster Properties from one of the DAG member which should be replicated for all nodes:

cluster /prop SameSubnetThreshold=20:DWORD
cluster /prop SameSubnetDelay=2000:DWORD
cluster /prop CrossSubnetThreshold=20:DWORD 
cluster /prop CrossSubnetDelay=4000:DWORD
cluster /prop RouteHistoryLength=40:DWORD

I have Exchange 2007 and I want to enable Outlook Anywhere for the purpose of office 365 staged migration.
We already have a working OWA 2007 for the users.
I have completed steps a) and b) so far.
a) I have installed Enable RPC over HTTP
b) On the EMC- Sever Configuration-Client access- I have Enabled Outlook Anywhere

The DNS and NetBIOS name of our Domain as attached in the snapshot. This is FYI and let me know if you need any further information.
Now to make the auto discover work, not sure what else i need to to do.

1) Do I need to create A record for autodiscover internally on the DNS.
2) I had renewed the SSL certificate procured from Trustico for Exchange 2007 server 12 months ago and do I need to now put autodiscover entries in the certificate.
3) Do I need to create a DNS forward lookup zones for my domain.
4) Do I need to add a “A” record for the autodiscover service on our public DNS.

Please suggest what is the easy way to make autodiscover work with my current setup.

Thanks any help and tutorials would be great.

I had this question after viewing Exchange 2013 Hybrid setup - HCW0 No federation trust is configured for this organization.

We have had an Office 365 tenant for years now, but have never migrated to it. Now that we wish to do so, I am getting the error in the subject line. Microsoft has worked on our inability to create a hybrid config off and on for the past year or more, with ZERO progress.

I see that one solution is to create a new tenant...does that mean creating an entirely new Office 365 account setup for our entire K-12 school district?  It's hard to imagine that switching to an entirely new Office 365 tenant domain name would not be a huge headache!

Perhaps I just don't understand the process. It was mentioned in the solution article listed above.

HELP!

I have a small business customer that I'm moving to Office 365.  There are just two users at this company.  In order for them to move to Office 365 Mail, they'll need Outlook 2016.  Exchange 2007 doesn't work with Outlook 2016.  What is the best way to make this happen smoothly?

Timing is of a concern since they make and ship parts.  Changing their MX record and getting their email loaded into Outlook 2016 will be a challenge.

Here's what I'm thinking.

1.  In their current older version of outlook, which works with Exchange 2007, save their email, calendar items and contacts to a PST file.

2.  Download and install Office 2016 from their Office 365 accounts.

3.  After Outlook 2016 is installed, point it to the Office 365 Exchange Server

4.  Import PST file into each user's profile

5.  Change MX record to change from their on prem Exchange Server to Office 365.

Any thing that I missed?

Thanks!

Office 365 setup. Default iPhone mail/calendar apps. Settings are correct on the app.

The user is experiencing random/intermittent sync problems. For instance, a meeting will be updated in Outlook, but the change doesn't sync. Certain mails don't arrive in inbox. Move that mail into a different folder and it appears. I've double checked all the settings and they appear fine. I deleted the calendar data, added again and the change in meeting synced no problem. It keeps happening though. Can anyone suggest something that I can do to prevent this?

Hi All,

I'm running Exchange server 2013 standard edition, and I tried to remove some of the old AD account from accessing the shared mailbox, using the PowerShell command:
Get the SID: Get-ADUser -Identity Kacung.Semprul
Remove the user: Remove-MailboxPermission -Identity Shared-MBX-1 -User "S-1-5-21-3684462478-1056977450-1152882164-8921" -AccessRights FullAccess -InheritanceType All -Deny:$true

But somehow I can not go through due to this error:
can't remove the access control entry on the object because the ace doesn't exist on the object

I've tried:

But still not working for me.

Microsoft recommends leaving an exchange server on premise to edit Directory Synced objects post hybrid migration (assuming you leave AD Connect up).  Either 2010 or 2013 (with a Hybrid Exchange License if you need one).  Using ADSI edit is "not supported".

But the mailboxes of course no longer show up in the EMC as a mailbox you can edit (for say SMTP addresses).  You can connect to the office 365 tenant via the EMC, but you can't edit anything coming from on premise.

How exactly do you use the EMC to modify directory synced objects?  For instance smtp addresses?

I have a few Office 365 / Outlook users who are experiencing a random problem when replying to various emails.  Example:
They receive an email from John Doe <jdoe@business.com>.  When they reply to the message, the name changes, but the email address is correct.  Example: The reply address would look like this: Steve Jones <jdoe@business.com>.  Steve Jones also has an @business.com address, same company, but that's not who sent the original message and has nothing to do with the reply.

This is happening with various email recipients, from different companies.  It does not appear to be isolated to a specific company or person and it doesn't happen all of the time with the same recipient.  It appears to be totally random - with the exception of the recipients always being part of the same company.

I checked the contacts in their Outlook and they are all separate contacts with information entered correctly.  What could be happening that the recipient name is changing and the email address is not when replying to email?

We are looking at upgrading our current Exchange 2010 onsite servers to the Exchange 365 Cloud based.  We currently have onsite Barracuda and Sophos devices that handle our SPAM and Antivirus e-mail scans.  We will have these devices for a couple more years before renewing.  I was wondering if anyone has any information on using these devices with the Exchange 365 cloud?  We are told that they will work, but we are wondering about the e-mail coming here and then up to Exchange 365.

Thank you
