Microsoft recently released a blogpost about deprecating Remote PowerShell in Exchange Online. It’s a small blog, but the impact can be serious. Exchange Online PowerShell is (was) available in three different versions and I will discuss these briefly.
M365 - Exchange Online Center
ENow Software's Microsoft Exchange Online blog built by Microsoft MVPs for IT/Sys Admins.
Exchange Online has different ways to provision mailboxes. Exchange Online is a standard service within Microsoft 365, which in the simplest case provides a mailbox. However, an Exchange Online mailbox also serves as a storage location for user-related data from other Microsoft 365 services.
One situation I see often with customers is the desire to control and monitor file downloads from the cloud. For most organizations in most industries, it’s important to control your organization's data, and that data is often contained in files. The proprietary nature of information in files makes them very valuable to many organizations, and thusly important to control.
When users report to IT support that Exchange Online delivers email messages to the Junk Email folder of their mailbox incorrectly, the reason is often a misconfiguration of Exchange Online Protection settings. Such a situation mainly affects Exchange Hybrid configurations that use the centralized message flow.
Many organizations regard their people as their greatest asset. There is no disputing that the ability to hire great talent is a critical component to success, but in today’s pandemic-work-from-home world these great assets could also pose the greatest risk to your business.
Exchange Web Services (EWS) have been an integral part of Exchange since Exchange Server 2007. They are used not only by Exchange Server and Exchange Online for communication between Exchange Servers and as part of hybrid communication. Email clients also use web services. EWS is a SOAP-based API, but in the meantime, there are more modern protocols.
Last week Microsoft announced that, effective October 1, 2022, they will beginto permanently disable Basic Auth in all tenants, regardless of usage (with the exception of SMTP Auth). Why the sudden change from their February 2021 announcement about postponing disabling Basic Auth for protocols in active use by tenant until further notice, yet Microsoft would continue to disable Basic Auth for all protocols not being used? We have the answers and the FAQs for you.
While many of us are still holding onto summer, it is mid-September and Fall is just around the corner. And that means a fairly important Microsoft deadline will soon be upon us. As of November 1, 2021 only Outlook 2013 Service Pack 1 (with latest fixes) and later versions will be able to connect to Microsoft 365 services.
