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.

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?

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 »
