Folder Restores with DIR 2.0

DIR 2.0 has added more functionality especially when combined with single item retention except for the ability to restore users deleted folders. If a user deletes a folder with items in it, we can only restore the items and not the folders WITH the items in it. In 2013, New public folders have the ability but not normal mailboxes.

Delegate Cleanup

When a user leaves the organization and their mailbox and AD account are removed the delegate information get's stuck in the Outlook client and creates errors for the users until it is removed. Is there anyway to make this a function of AD or Exchange so that this removed when a user leaves?

Add RU/CU name to Server Version info

Add the Rollup & Cumulative update version to the Server Version name. Currently when you run Get-ExchangeServer | FT Name, AdminDisplayVersion it just shows the build number which we have to lookup or remember every build number. This would remove the need for extensive scripts that look at registry keys among other things.

Mobile access

OWA App for Android Phones/Tablets

An app like the OWA App for iPhone/iPad, but now for Android devices. No need for ActiveSync and all it's troubles that come with it (for instance: SD encryption sometimes formats the SD with loss of data) and no worries about a complete remote wipe (potentially wiping personal data).

Outlook Client

Prepopulated FROM:

Pre-filled FROM: dropdown listbox in mail composition form (also OWA), using info from delegated / shared mailboxes a.o. (Send-As) to populate. More end-user friendly than typing in the 'from' address (once) or picking entry from GAL (when shown).

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.
