Exchange 2013

Can I place my Exchange hybrid management server in Azure and use Azure Domain Services?

Written on March 31, 2017 at 3:18 PM, by

As some might know (although I and others have to repeat this regularly…), if you enable directory synchronization from your on-premises Active Directory (AD) and you migrate all you Exchange mailboxes to Exchange Online you still require an Exchange server to manage mail(box) objects. It is the only supported solution, even though some use third […]

Cheat Sheet: Setting Exchange Mailbox User Permissions via PowerShell

Written on July 13, 2015 at 4:24 PM, by

One of the things I get asked about quite a lot, is how you can set specific permissions in Exchange Server and Exchange Online. Most cases the Management Console (in 2010) or the Exchange Admin Center (EAC, Exchange 2013 & 2016 and Online) provide most basic permissions like Full Access, Send As and Send On […]

Sometimes you’re not at work and you suspect there is something wrong with your Exchange 2013 servers and you can’t access your environment remotely for whatever reason. Well, in some cases you can check this with just a browser. For each Exchange protocol, there is an URL you can use to check the health. The format […]

Tool Tip: RBAC Manager R2 for Exchange

Written on February 27, 2015 at 4:53 PM, by

This week I had a session at a customer to customize the default RBAC roles, for instance removing the mobile device remote wipe feature from Recipient Management. Customizing RBAC roles is in most cases not something that is a frequent task, so it can take a while to familiarize and re-familiarize with the concept and […]

Issues with Unified Contact Store in combination with Lync on-premises and Exchange Online

Written on February 19, 2015 at 11:50 PM, by

I’ve encountered an issue that popped up while I was testing a move from Exchange On-premises to Exchange Online (EXO) while Lync Server 2013 remained on-premises due to Enterprise Voice. Outlook Web Access (OWA) from Exchange Online can be integrated with on-premises Lync, this way OWA users can see presence and have limited IM functionality […]

No, Windows Phone ActiveSync is not on par with OWA for Devices

Written on January 20, 2015 at 11:00 AM, by

Recently I came across this Twitter exchange: @WayneHRiddle You don’t need it for WP. Native app handles all of that functionality. — Ben Rudolph (@BenThePCGuy) January 17, 2015 I’ve heard this argument before, that the Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) implementation in Windows Phone doesn’t require an OWA for Devices app (or MOWA as is the official acronym) […]

Do not update your Office Web Apps Server with automatic updates

Written on January 14, 2015 at 4:15 PM, by

Although it is not exactly required to deploy with Exchange Server 2013, Office Web Apps Server (OWAS or also referred to as WAC server) provides a more user friendly experience instead of the standard Web Preview. For Lync Server 2013 it’s a requirement if you want to be able to present PowerPoint files in a […]

Mail enabled Public Folders on Exchange 2013 CU6 require action for internet mail to be received

Written on August 26, 2014 at 9:19 PM, by

So, CU6 is out. It’s easy to overlook the change mentioned within the Exchange 2013 Release Notes. And you might have missed the Exchange Team blog post about all Public Folder changes with CU6. And it might not be relevant for your situation. But I know certain customers rely on mail enabled Public Folders that […]
