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.

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 »

Calendar improvement

We host our Exchange and Lync community calls and send the invites out via DL’s. Generally this has been good and a major improvement over trying to maintain the list of invitees within the event itself. However, it’s far from perfect, people end up with old/stale invites, don’t get updates, get forward the invite so never receive updates etc. The solution, to my mind, is a calendar that people subscribe to – that way ...more »

"Take ownership" of orphaned meetings

When someone leaves the company, they often have recurring meetings that remain on other calendars. We need a way to take ownership of a meeting - have the system check to see if the owner's account still exists (or isn't disabled and a resource account, for those companies like mine that don't delete mailboxes for a month after the colleqague leaves the company), and if the owner account doesn't exist (or is like the ...more »

Silent OWA Redirection for Exchange Hybrid

When a cloud user logs into the on-premise OWA URL in a hybrid deployment, the user is prompted with the "Use the following link to open this mailbox..." prompt and a link to the Office 365 OWA interface. In the interest of providing the most seamless integration for hybrid organizations, it would be nice for the option exist to make this a silent redirection so both on-premise and cloud users can utilize the same URL. ...more »

Improve Legacy Public Folder Migration

The current method of migrating from legacy public folders to a public folder mailbox is painful. I appreciate all that has been written about the process, however, it simply does not work elegantly or efficiently enough to attempt the process. As it stands right now, PST export/import is the only method I will perform. Would love something more integrated.
