The latest 5.4.4 version supports Outlook 2016, however, Syncing Master cannot be installed on a computer with Outlook 2016.

Migrate legacy (2003 or 2007) Exchange to Exchange 2016

Migrate legacy Exchange to Exchange 2016

Microsoft has stirred up a quite load of enthusiasm by the recent appearance of Exchange 2016. As the new version raised inquiries among IT professionals for new solutions, Microsoft in fact did not soothe this yearning for any cutting-edge technologies. You get a bundle of improvements, out of which the removal of the Client Access Role and replacing MAPI with EWS seem to be one of the most relevant developments (read more about it). What’s more, if you had any high hopes for any breakthroughs in terms of version coexistence with legacy, Exchange 2003 or 2007, then you know now that with this version Microsoft has clearly stated its engineering policy and is rather far from that.

How IT Dev Connections 2015 stacks up against Microsoft IT Conferences

This year’s IT Dev Connections takes place in Aria Hotel and Resort in Las Vegas. Allegedly what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, but since we did not throw a mattress out of the window and we didn’t kidnap anyone (yet), I think I can share my first impressions after day 1 of Penton Media’s flagship conference.

It’s the third conference taking place in the US that we are sponsoring and exhibiting on in 2015. Traveling from Poland is not an easy thing (especially if you’re based far from any international airport) and this time it took us three days to get to Nevada. No… we didn’t travel by bike, it’s our flight that got delayed and grounded us in Philadelphia for 15 hours. Anyway… let’s cut to the chase.

How can marketing department manage email signatures in Exchange environment?

Taking into account the fact that email signatures are an important part of any business visual identity, it seems to be crucial to prepare them in a professional way. Perhaps in most organizations, email signatures are managed by administrators as only they have appropriate rights to provide any changes on the server e.g. setting up transport rules. However, what if they prefer to delegate this part of their duties to someone else, namely a marketing representative?
