You're going to need to dip into Group policy and enforce it, even on the ones you've already setup. Managing outlook should be done via GPOs, anyway.

What kind of storage are you using in your virtualized exchange deployment on Hyper-v hosts? For example, VHDs, iscsi mounted at the host, or iscsi in the VM? I typically mount at the host for my volumes and attach as scsi hotdisks, but could I run exchange stores in VHDs? I have a userbase of about 200 or so.

If you use the knowledge to apply to your day to day deployment and managing of a production exchange instance, sure. The allure of being able to bang about a live demo exchange environment has its benefits. However, if it's for you and you alone and you have a spare mac laying around, OS X Mail looks to be a simpler operation.

They fixed this in a rollup. You can deploy 3.0 again (if you're on SP3+the rollup). However, now they're doing a warning to not roll out PS 4.0 to all non-server platforms (EXC,sharepoint).

You should really enable the advance logging to have a record of all DS changes. Especially if people in the organization can slip in to the other exchange roles (Discovery management for one).

If that's too pricey, look into GFI MailArchiver. That's what we use, just pulling right from a journaling mailbox into read-only (SQL-backed) Archive Stores based on quarter. You can feed your PSTs back into the journal mailbox to populate historical data - ask me about loading 7 years worth of historical email in from PSTs written to CDs/DVDs!

I pushed really, really hard to get GFI deployed. We're deploying a much more expensive barracuda. GFI can get pricy as well, especially if you need to get another copy of SQL deployed.

I would verify in OWA (outlook web access) by going to the upper right, click their name, open other mailbox, and having them swap to that user they can send privileges as. You'll never need to dive into exchange logs...ever.

Then if that works (as in you can see the other users mailbox) make sure you're using the options-> Show fields-> FROM and explicitly saying the send as users email address.

You may need to google the Powershell commands to give a user explicit send as and full rights privileges.

Are Rackspace's hosted exchange upgrade migrations as transparent as they say?

We're on 2007 and want to upgrade to 2013 for the lower price, free activesync, and much, much larger mailbox sizes (we're at 2GB now)

Looks like the only issue we'll have is they no longer support public folders. What's up with that?

I suspect they don't want to implement a migration patch for the public folders (Public folder implementation has changed greatly for 2013) and they can upsell another license in the form of a shared mailbox.

Exchange 2013 supports public folders just fine, and will support for quite a while.

Right from microsofts own Hosted/multi tenant documentation for Exchange 2013.

quote:

Public Folders If you choose to provide public folders to your tenants you should create a top level folder for each tenant, and apply the appropriate security to ensure only the members of each tenant can access it.

If rackspace is basically re selling exchange online (which is different), the exchange team just provided the steps to migrate public folders. However their stance on the public folder is different than what microsoft is saying exchange 2013 can do. I still believe they have a custom deployment that would prevent public folder usage and migration.

The jump from exchange 2010 to 2013 will literally put you in new-user mode.

The problem with public folders is microsoft shitted on the concept, stagnated on features, declared it dead, declared it undead , and gave it legitimate first class scalable technology update in 2013/o365. 2007 and 2010 had to drag 2003 concepts of high availability public folders around like an albatross when the mailbox databases got really useful cluster and HA features. (Fun fact: "migrating public folders" is an anagram for gently caress THIS poo poo)

You're going to have a much better experience with features that public folder had in a legit sharepoint online instance. Even moving back and forth from o365 and sharepoint is a seamless process. Take ownership of that hellish 2007/2010 setup, put two bucks in that thing, and get everyone to the cloud.

And this is from a dude who admins a onprem.
