Push Activesync Organizational settings to Activesync Policies

Currently quarantine, block or allow, and approval for activesync devices is performed using the Set-ActiveSyncOrganizationSettings powershell cmdlet.

 

These features should be baked into Activesync Policies, allowing Exchange Administrators to prioritise block, quarantine and allow configurations based on the Activesync device policy a user mailbox has been set.

Meeting planning tool for internal _and_ external users

Exchange currently has the Scheduling Assistant in Outlook and OWA, but unless you have Exchange Federated partners in order to access each others organizations Free/Busy information, it's limited to internal users. This makes planning with external users more cumbersome. Basically something like Doodle.com, within Exchange but without the need for federation or extensive preparations. Inspired by a suggestion by Mike... more »

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 »

Mail looping with Automatic Resposnes Fix.

This has been the case for ages. If I set up a generic shared mailbox and set an automatic reply on it in Outlook it and an external sender to it from their equivalent has the same setup a ping pong between the two SMTP addreses ensues. An automatic response however, only sends a message once so that is not practical either, Other mail systems seem to manage this scenario. Can it be fixed in Exchange please?

Store LegacyExchangeDN when disabling mailbox/mailuser

There are many times when administrators have a reason to disable mail-related attributes on AD objects. How many of these admins have accidentally lost the LegacyExchangeDN? Thousands of admins do this, even in Exchange Online. Either leave the LegacyExchangeDN as-is after the AD account is first mail/mailbox-enabled, or store it in an alternative attribute when disabling mail-related attributes and when re-enabling... more »

Add Standards-compliant Calendar Sharing (with read/write)

End users can share a calendar with anyone from Exchange using iCal or HTML. Extend this feature to allow authenticated users (either via URL, or username/password) to edit calendars shared via iCal, updating the same underlying feature to use HTTPS rather than HTTP. This will allow end users to collaborate better with anyone, whatever the platform, or whatever client they are using. This will also mean that users of... more »

Alerts Admin during DAG Failover Events

When DAG database failover event occurs alert admins through E-mail notification to notify over this event to take action, we have script which checks the database distribution on the Exchange Servers and when it finds any discrepancy in the distribution triggers an Email with the details with which we come to know about the issue and start the investigation, It would be good if this is automated with a Option in EAC... more »

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.
