I have to replace the exchange  certificate. We are in a hybrid environment with O365 with all mailboxes in O365. Mail still flows through internal servers.
I plan to use the following method:-
- Copy the pfx file to the server.
- Open EAC and Import new pfx file
- Move the services to the new cert

Do we need to do something on Office 365 side as well?
And any other step to think of?
And if ADFS is used for Office 365 then are there more steps to follow?

I have to replace the ADFS certificate on the server. How can I determine all the servers involved in ADFS.
I plan to use the following method:-
1. Import the new certificate into the server certificate store.
2. From the ADFS management console set services communications certificate and select the new certificate. Do the same for token signing. Restart ADFS service.
3. Run following command with the thumbprint of new cert:
Set-AdfsSslCertificate –Thumbprint xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
4. On the ADFS WAP server run following commands for the new cert thumbprint:-
Set-WebApplicationProxySslCertificate –Thumbprint xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Set-WebApplicationProxyApplication –ExternalCertificateThumbprint xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Do we need to do something from the vendor side who use ADFS for sso?
And any other step to think of?
And if ADFS is used for Office 365 then are there more steps to follow?

A user of mine cannot see Group Files function when trying to attach a file while composing an email. The screenshot below is from my computer. It shows Group Files, and then allow me to point to a OneDrive Cloud Sharepoint repository where I am then able to browse for a file within the repository to attach in the email. My user have rights to the repository. How would I add the ability for her to where she can see Group Files, and would then be able to browse to Store Operations?

I am curious if we could use a distribution list as a login to team so that we can notify other users not in the distribution list in the teams chat feature.

Currently the only way I can see this happening if the email address is a unique address.

We have an office with everyone running office 365.  The office still has an exchange server.  We use office 365 only for the office products We're having an issue with everyones outlook freezing at different times throughout the day. I have tried running outlook in safe mode as a test, and when I put it in safe mode the issue goes away. Otherwise it locks up from time to time anywhere  from 13 seconds to 30 seconds and can't figure out why. Anyone else have this issue?

I have a client that currently has SBS2011 with Exchange 2010 in-house.   I am recommending upgrading to Server 2019 Essentials and moving their e-mail to Office 365.

This client is very concerned (paranoid) that the data in their e-mail could be compromised or hacked, even by Microsoft personnel, since they communicate sensitive information with their clients and their lawyers.

I had talked to them previously about files stored in the “cloud” and how they sometimes are secured with a private encryption key so that even the personnel at the “host” couldn’t access the data; Azure Backup Encryption Passphrase for example.

How secure is the Exchange data that is stored on Microsoft’s servers (Office 365), and how is it secured?

Thank you in advance for any assistance and advice.

We have some users that would like to use Windows Hello features that continue to be greyed out or state "Something Went Wrong. Try again later".  Our domain is using Azure AD connect mainly for the purposes of Hybrid Exchange with Office 365 and I'm wondering if there is more to do on the cloud end or if I'm just missing something on the on premises network.  

The policies that are in place are:

 System\Logon -- Turn on Convenience PIN sign in enabled

Office 365.  What is the best way to help out the problem of too many emails ending up in quarantine that should not be flagged as spam?  It is becoming a bit of a problem.  Can I tweak anything to make it less strict?

Office 365 account for Office desktop software (No Office e-mail account) and using only a G-mail hosted domain e-mail.  Due to business e-mail cannot set calendar sharing (iCal) to public other than Free/Busy.  So this is not an option.  One user has 2 physical computers, and needs to get this working.

Office365 with 2 seperate domains approved.
Both domain have run aprox a year before being DNS pointet på 365.
One domain works fine and all older folders loaded in via .pst shows correct.
The other domain has 2 emails, one works fine but the other only shows the subfolders context in owa.
I have tried looking at the permissions with powershell and everything seems fine.
Microsoft Exchange Online Powershell Module
I tried creating new profiles and logging the account in, also on different client pc's but still no context on subfolders.

Further the 'Inbox' wont change name according to the language, sent etc folder renames fine when changing timezone on first log-in to owa. Alle the other emails on both domains this has worked fine.

All mailbox in outlook is set to recieve all emails and not just a year back.

There is a Business Premium Licens to the account, so it should have the nessasary permissions and program access.

Both owa and outlook can send and recieve emails.

I've seen this issue pop up on a second machine, so now I'm just a little puzzled. Is there any known correlation between the HomePage registry key and Office 365? Checked out a W10 machine one time, everything functional, internet connection just fine, only that Microsoft services are inaccessible. Outlook and SfB do not succeed at connecting, and navigating to O365 portal in browser immediately results in connection reset.

Ran malware/security scans and only thing of note was the HomePage registry key. Specifically under: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel. Deleting or modifying this key's value and rebooting sometimes succeeds in restoring the connection, but it's inconsistent. Anyone ever experience this?

I am looking to perform a clean up on a user account as a transfer tool also recognised the purges folder (once items have been deleted from the 'Recover Deleted Items Folder').

What is the best way to clean up the ‘Purges’ folder of an Office 365 account without impacting the active mailbox? At the moment, I can see the data is still in there and am unable to wait until Office 365 clears it out.

From what research I have done, I can do it via PowerShell however am not sure on the best method.

Have a customer that switched to Office 365 Business Premium. They were using the default MAIL app on iPhone to send and receive emails. Now they are using Outlook APP to sync with Office 365 and Outlook Desktop. They were using POP before on both accounts with WIX EMAIL HOSTING (account dead now) and have some SENT emails that are currently still in the default MAIL app on iPhone. How can I get all of those SENT ITEMS in the dafualt MAIL app on Iphone into the SENT ITEMS of OUTLOOK on Desktop?

I have iCloud app installed on the Windows Laptop and it appears to be syncing the CONTACTS and the CALENDARS, but I see NO EMAIL.

TL;DR
Need to get SENT EMAIL from Apple default MAIL app transferred to Outlook DESKTOP SENT ITEMS.

Thanks

Hi, office 365 Business contains basic identification management for logging into Windows.  Are there any other security benefits when your a organization authenticates into Windows with their basic Office 365 Business account?

What are the security selling points on the E3 vs E5 if went we pieced together a la cart plan?

I was thinking below was the was the best bang for your buck but I want someone to clearly explain the key security features that your typical IT administrator and decision maker should not live with out.

Example:  $14.00 (E5) + $12.50 (Office 365 Premium)= $26.50  (you get E5 plan)

Hi

Our staff are going to have a board meeting in a room. This meeting room has a Projector, PC Speakers and Webcam.

There will be some directors outside our organisation, who want to join the meeting and they would like to dial into the meeting using Teams in Office 0365 through a Video or Voice.

I have not done this type of set up using Microsoft Teams.

Do I need to log into my Teams account in the PC in the board meeting in a room?
Do I need to provide my email address to join the meeting through Team?
What other details I need to provide for the directors to join the meeting through team.

Please let me know how to achieve this.

Any help  and tutorials much appreciated.

Thanks

I had this question after viewing Users getting message, Server Administrator has Limited the Number of Items You Can Open Simultaneously.

One of my clients has several users with the Outllook for O365 client on Windows 10 Pro desktops under an Office365 Business Premium subscription.  For a long time now they've been using a shared calendar to manage their restaurant bookings.  The shared calendar has a recurring event and to make a booking they edit/save the entry for the specific day required.

All was good until last Friday 7 February when they can no longer save the updates.  Now getting message 'Server Administrator has limited the number of items you can open simultaneously. Try closing messages you have opened or removing attachments and images from unsent messages you are composing.'

Can an expert shed any light on this message and perhaps how I can go about finding what the limit is that's being exceeded and from there how to fix?

I have an Office 365 Excel VBA program which connects to a local Sql Server Express 2017 to run a stored procedure. Sql Server is set to Sql Server and Windows authentication mode.

I have a connection string in the VBA code:
"Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=" & server & ";Initial Catalog=" & database & ";Trusted_Connection=Yes"
... which works perfectly.

When I set the connection string to a Sql Server user:
connString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=" & server & ";Initial Catalog=" & database & ";User ID=" & uid & ";Password =" & password

... I get the error message:
Login failed for user '3'

The Sql Server user (PFreeman) and password I specified has db owner privileges.
There is user or login named 3 in Sql Server.

Can you suggest why the VBA/ADO or whatever is sending the user 3 to Sql Server or what might be the problem with the connection string?  I have tried every permutation to the connection string I can think of with no success.

Thanks
