Exchange Services status in EAC

It would be great to have visible status of Exchange Services in EAC - especially when RPCClientAccess Service stopping unexpectedly.

OWA App for Windows Phone

An app like the OWA App for iPhone/iPad, but now for Windows Phone devices. No need for ActiveSync and no worries about a complete remote wipe (potentially wiping personal data).

It also allows for a more Premium experience on WP, compared to the native ActiveSync implementation.

Real-time block list support

Exchange 2007/2010 supported the Connection Filtering Agent on the Hub Transport role. This agent is not available on the Exchange 2013 CAS and Mailbox roles.

 

This means we can't use real-time block lists on Exchange 2013 servers. Which is a shame because RBL's have proven to be a great measurement against spam.

Mobile Device Cleanup

Mobile devices connecting to Exchange is the way of the future yet most of the time when we get new devices the old one stays in the list. I have a powershell script to clean these up, but it would be nice if this could be automated through Exchange.

Provide Queue Viewer in EAC in Exchange 2013

My understanding is that the SMTP Queue viewer is only available in the Exchange toolkit on the Exchange 2013 mailbox server. Would prefer to have the Queue viewer available in the web-based EAC.

Public Folders in OWA

Request to have public folders automatically displayed in OWA based on user's permission settings instead of manually having to add as favorites.

AutoMapping for MailEnabled Security Groups

You can set the AutoMapping feature when adding individual users to Shared Mailboxes.

However, this facility is not available for Security Groups.

 

A lot of organisations tend to link Security Groups to Shared Mailboxes as part of their designs, which is frustrating when AutoMapping doesn't work.

 

Would be good to solve this MS.

Certificate request: support for direct use of internal CA

When generating certificate requests, you cannot directly use an internal CA such as with the Lync Deployment tool.

This isn't an issue for public certificates, but for internal certificates (for instance OAuth) this would make my life a bit more pleasant.

More control over Out of Office reply

You have Inside and Outside Organization and you can even enable that only (outside) contacts receive an OOF reply. I would like a little bit more control over that, for instance by by white or blacklisting (external) contacts, so that they will or will not receive an OOF reply. Also the ability sending an OOF reply for external addresses only when you do not have them as a contact. It's reasonable to assume that contacts ...more »

PAL tool treshold file for Exchange 2013

PAL (http://pal.codeplex.com/) is the best tool to assist with Exchange performance issues. The tool helps with the creation of performance monitor counter logs and analyzing the logs against a threshold file. Unfortunately there's no threshold file for Exchange 2013 and the author of the 2010 versions doesn't respond to email. It would be great if the Exchange Team could support this, the tool is just as valuable as ...more »

Enhanced Retention Policies

At the moment Retention Policies are only triggered on their retention age. Enhancing it with additional regular expressions (like transport/mail rules) will help manage the mailbox. For instance: Mail to archive when retention age is 90 days, unless object has attachment the mail is moved to archive when retention age is 45 days. (In my own mailbox, I move certain mails via a rule to a folder which has a specific retention ...more »

Centralized management for Cmdlet Extention Agents

It would be great to have a way to centrally manage the CMDlet Extention Agents instead of per server.

Aditionally preserving them through a CU upgrade would be equally appreciated!
