Multi-factor authentication is a process where a user is prompted during the sign-in process for an additional form of identification, such as to enter a code on their cellphone or to provide a fingerprint scan.
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

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!
