In my first part of Exchange Online Automation with EXOv2 module, I covered how you can use Dave’s PowerShell module for cutting down the Azure AD application registration and configuration. Also, how and why you should store your secrets in Azure Key Vault.

Office 365 (3)
You may have heard a few terms referencing Microsoft 365 platform success before, such as consumption, activation, usage, uptake and adoption. They may seem clear enough and are certainly buzz words being thrown around the last couple of years, but it’s not necessarily straight forward. It is important to know the lingo and ensure your focus is on the right area or data when it comes to your implementation and your longer-term Microsoft journey.
How can EXO recipient management be done without the need of administrative accounts? This question has been asked for a long time.Microsoft Graph does not cover the entire recipient management in Exchange Online and Microsoft customers have been asking for a solution for a long time. Now as Microsoft turns off Basic authentication, it looks like there is some movement.
There's a lot of content out there about backups for Office 365. I personally have written and spoken a lot about backups for Office 365. If you ask 10 experts, you will probably get 10 different opinions about how, or why, or what you should or should not backup in Office 365. Depending on the day (and, let’s be honest, depending on who I am working for) I may give you different answers.
The great thing about Office 365 is that it is a constantly updated service. For your subscription, your organization is constantly getting new features and functionality that can greatly improve the overall Office 365 experience. Of course, the downside of that is that IT pros working in Office 365 need to keep up to date on these changes..
When it comes to collaboration, Outlook is still the most in common tool. It’s not only an e-mail client, it allows you also managing your appointments, tasks etc.
Especially the manager-delegate scenario, Outlook is THE tool to be used. But even we have great features, supporting our daily work and many scenarios, there are always limits. And these limits can cause a lot of trouble.
In my previous blogpost, I wrote about how crucial it is to have all of your domains registered, Access Control Entries (ACE) on mailbox and folder level in a row and a reminder to keep things simple and you might revisit your architecture and the need of resource forests.
With the use of the Office 365 platform, application monitoring requirements have changed. In your on-premises IT infrastructure, you normally monitor the availability of applications by solely checking server reachability. In some cases, you might choose to implement enhanced application monitoring by accessing dedicated protocol endpoints.
There are several ways outlined by Microsoft that can be found here. This blogpost goes over migrating from an integrated Exchange server infrastructure to Exchange Online with a hybrid deployment. I will not cover third-party migrations, as this is not relevant for the topics mentioned in this post.
Years ago, you moved successfully from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 and to be honest, you’re still very satisfied with it. Update rollups appear frequently and your Office 2010 still functions properly, so everybody is happy. But all good things come to an end.
