The Microsoft 365 security center includes capabilities that protect your environment. It also includes reports and dashboards you can use to monitor and take action. Some areas come with default policy configurations. Some areas do not include default policies or rules. Visit these policies under threat management to tune threat management settings for a more secure environment.
What is it ?
If you are migrating your emails to #Office365 and for any reason if you required by your business to route your email via on-premises network infrastructure, this how you want to do this.
Don’t place any servers, services, or devices between your on-premises Exchange servers and Office 365 that process or modify SMTP traffic. Secure mail flow between your on-premises Exchange organization and Office 365 depends on information contained in messages sent between the organization. Firewalls that allow SMTP traffic on TCP port 25 through without modification are supported. If a server, service, or device processes a message sent between your on-premises Exchange organization and Office 365, this information is removed. If this happens, the message will no longer be considered internal to your organization and will be subject to anti-spam filtering, transport and journal rules, and other policies that may not apply to it.
Exchange 2007 End of Life Roadmap
Do you know that April 11 2017 is the date when Exchange 2007 will no longer be supported by Microsoft.
If you haven’t already begun your migration from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2016 or Office 365 now’s the time to start your planning.
What does End of Life mean?
Exchange Server, like almost all Microsoft products, has a support lifecycle during which we provide new features, bug fixes, security fixes, and so on. This lifecycle typically lasts for 10 years from the date of the product’s initial release, and the end of this lifecycle is known as the product’s End of Life. When Exchange 2007 reaches its End of Life on April 11, 2017, Microsoft will no longer provide:
- Technical support for problems that may occur;
- Bug fixes for issues that are discovered and that may impact the stability and usability of the server;
- Security fixes for vulnerabilities that are discovered and that may make the server vulnerable to security breaches;
- Time zone updates.
Your installation of Exchange 2007 will continue to run after this date. However, because of the changes listed above, we strongly recommend that you migrate from Exchange 2007 as soon as possible.
Benefits of upgrading to Exchange 2016

I still have more questions, where do I get more details?

Are you ready for another exciting event with fresh content?
MS Tech Summit is a TWO DAY free technical event.
Am I attending – Yes I’m attending the D.C. event
Why Am I attending – If you remember Microsoft iGnite had very first event like this in D.C. 4-5 years ago and then later it became the only event (combined TechEd, MEC etc) for IT Pro and Dev.
Why Attend? still not sure
Over all this event has everything for everyone who is practicing either SharePoint, Exchange, Office 365, Lync or Skype for Business. I’m expecting this event to have fresh content developed from last years’s iGnite and Now. See there!
Running from Hall A to Hall C and then back to Hall A I needed up walking/running approximately 4 miles (6 km) per day, yeah it was good cardio J
I went there to learn more about on-premises Exchange Server 2016 and Hybrid configuration with Office 365 BUT was not quite impressed though you search the sessions you will find approx. 57 sessions on EXCHANGE but most of the are just Office 365 features and product marketing. It looks like iGnite email related (messaging) content were focused to a specific customer market or in other words they ignored the large enterprise customer running complex exchange environment.
I’d also mention that there were some sessions which I liked most and one of them was just specific to Office 365 but it is related to on-premises stuff (Below is the list of sessions I liked most or in other word 5/5 on the score card).
Challenge cloud encryption myths and learn about Office 365 BYOK plans
Yes, now you can bring your own keys. Very information session from Jaclynn.
Migrate to Exchange Online via Exchange Hybrid
2nd session of the day for Hybrid. Tons of information, must watch Tim and Mike did an awesome job. And yes don’t forget to run the RCW on-premises.
Meet twin sons of different mothers (MVPs and Exchange engineers). It was a very interactive session carried out by Tony Redmond with folks from Product Team (Karim Battish and Jeff Mealiffe) and Exchange MVP (Andrew Higginbotham and Jeff Guillet). The room was full of on-premises Exchange Enthusiast.
The Ultimate Field Guide to Office 365 Groups. Microsoft gave a lot of information at Ignite about future developments for Office 365 Groups. This session provided a counterweight in that it focused on how groups are used in the field. This session was carried out by Tony Redmond and Bejamin Niaulin.
Unplug with the experts on Exchange Server and Exchange Online
Another interactive session. Discussion on on-premises, Modern-Auth, ADFS and Hybrid
So to conclude that overall it was a busy event, specially with running from one hall to another (wish they plan it better next year). Other than attending these breakout sessions I got most of questions answered by meeting the product team at the booth, I spent HOURS with them.
How to export Office 365 mailboxes to Outlook PST
Using eDiscovery PST Export Tool to export mailbox items to PST
12. Finally, access PST file using MS Outlook by adding it to an existing Outlook profile.
The alternative – Lepide Exchange Recovery Manager
If using eDiscovery seems a little convoluted, or is taking too long, then you may be better off deploying a third-party solution. Lepide Exchange Recovery Manager allows you to export mailboxes from various sources, including Office 365 to PST files, and makes light work of EDB to PST conversions. It’s user friendly GUI and easy to follow instructions turn what could be a difficult task into a simple one. Below are the steps you need to take to export Office 365 mailboxes to PST using Lepide Exchange Recovery Manager:
7. The export details are displayed at the bottom of the window after the completion of the process. Click Close.
The Exchange Online eDiscovery to PST tool enables you to export mailbox items to PST, but the process isn’t as quick and simple as it perhaps could be. You may find that it makes more sense for you to deploy a third-party solution, like Lepide Exchange Recovery manager, which is likely to speed up the process and give you complete control over Exchange recoveries and mailbox to PST exports.

“Proof of domain ownership has failed” Exchange Hybrid Configuration Wizard Failure – if you are seeing this error even after your DOMAIN VERIFICATION / OWNERSHIP Status is OK in #Office365 you may need to do some extra effort. There are many articles related for the same problem but they all have different or similar scenario but not exactly. So I cam across a TechNet article the other day (I’ve followed many other blogs too) and there one simple step you need to make sure you copy the current TEXT for the Domain Proof.
Let say your Federation Trust keep on failing then you need to follow this
at the Exchange Shell run this
copy all the proof text ending with ==
and create a new Text Record for that domain- Now if you run the wizard again it will run successfully
