Recreating an Outlook profile is a quick fix in many situations. In the video below I show how to recreate Outlook profiles for a single user and for an entire company. But first, what is an Outlook profile?
Outlook profile contains all the information about your Outlook configuration. You might be using Outlook for years without knowing of the profile existence, but it is how Outlook knows how to connect to your mailbox. The best part of Outlook profiles is that resetting them is an easy and quick method of fixing some common problems with the email client. The video tutorial below shows the easiest method to create a new Outlook profile.
There are three options to choose from to add different signatures to user mailbox and shared mailbox emails. The first method is to create two separate signatures in Outlook, the second requires mail flow rules on the server side and the third involves the use of CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365.
On the Internet, you can find tons of guides, which explain how to migrate from an IMAP server to Office 365.

Windows Event logs is one of the first tools an admin uses to analyze problems and to see where does an issue come from. But it is not the only way you can use logged events. In this article, I will show you how to use PowerShell and Get-EventLog to perform some Event Log magic. But first, a few words about the logs in general.

Data migration isn’t one of those tasks faced by the companies on a daily basis. And the full migration of email data will probably take place no often than once every couple of years. However, there is a high chance that sooner or later you will begin to look around for a way to migrate your mailboxes. And when the time comes, many questions will arise: Should you migrate to a new Exchange on-prem or Office 365? What types of data should be migrated? Can you migrate only selected data? And most of all: how to migrate your email data?
In this article, I’ll try to answer some of these questions. And I’ll also toss around some of the pros and cons of taking advantage of third-party companies offering Exchange migration services vs. using a migration tool by yourself or by your IT team.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduces many changes in the way companies handle data. And although the regulations are the same for every company, the way each organization handles their data security is hardly similar. In this article, I will show you how you can get closer to a complete GDPR compliance by blocking possible data leaks in your Exchange Server.
Emails are one of the most potent channels for data leaks – sometimes, an honest mistake can cause an email with personal data to leave an organization and end up in an unauthorized mailbox. Such a data breach is unacceptable and a disclaimer asking to “delete the email if it is not intended for this email address” is not enough under the regulations introduced by GDPR. Thankfully, you can ensure a much higher data security level of your Exchange Server, using CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro.
Since the GDPR changes the way personal data needs to be handled, the approach to email marketing will also be affected. For example, not only you need to obtain consent from your subscribers to receive commercial emails, but you also need to provide means to unsubscribe from your mailing lists. The latter can be easily achieved by using the unsubscribe mechanism in CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro.
Besides being used to centrally manage email flow and set up organization-wide email signatures and disclaimers in an Exchange environment, CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro is also a great tool that can be used for marketing purposes. Additionally, it comes with an unsubscribe mechanism that allows you to insert an unsubscribe link in each email. Once this link is clicked by the recipient, their email address is added to a blacklist, based on which the program can either block all outgoing messages or only those relating to a specific campaign.
One of the main requirements of the GDPR is to keep personal data safe. When it comes to electronic communication, you need to use every means possible to ensure that this type of data is not disclosed or accessed by any unauthorized persons, including your employees as well as people outside your organization. And since emails are sent in both directions, to and from your company, it would be beneficial to be able to manage the flow of all messages in your organization. With an appropriate tool in place, you can rest assured that all emails are always sent to the appropriate recipient and that no email containing sensitive data leaves your organization. And CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro is just that kind of tool.
CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro is an email signature and email flow manager for Exchange that is packed with many features that can help you process, protect, and monitor personal data exactly as you want. One of these features is advanced email forwarding. You can forward emails to specific recipients based on many different factors, for example:
whether the message contains specific keywords in its body or subject (such as name, address, date of birth, etc.)
who is the sender of the message (specific email address, email address included (or not) in your Active Directory, the message comes from outside of your company, etc.)
whether the message contains (or not) attachments
type of the message (new email, reply, forward, etc.).
Take a look at the following examples of use for email forwarding feature in relation to the GDPR and see how easy it is to implement automatic and controlled processing of personal data.
