CodeTwo Exchange Sync released

We have just released an update to CodeTwo Exchange Sync. Version is now available for download on our website. The release includes a number of bug fixes handling issues reported by our users. Make sure to check the full version history of our product as well.

The key fixes:

  • Fixed: The subjects of synced items were not always up to date. Even if the program was configured to modify items’ subjects automatically
  • Fixed: Not all of the items were synchronized in case many of them were created in a short time span
  • Fixed: Synchronization stopped occasionally, mostly due to the failure of the connection with Exchange server. To continue with synchronization, the server had to be restarted
  • Fixed: The program could not connect to the server if its AD attributes did not include information of the MS Exchange Server version.

CodeTwo Exchange Sync update is highly recommended as it will result in software performance improvement. Update your software immediately or learn more about the process.

What is CodeTwo Exchange Sync?

CodeTwo Exchange Sync is an Exchange Server data synchronization tool. It enables Microsoft Exchange Server folders’ real-time synchronization, allowing you to create group calendars and other common items.
The synchronization can fulfill various source-target scenarios, for example, replicate files from one folder to many, many-to-one, as well as from many-to-many. Synchronized items can be filtered and modified during the replication. The solution is widely known for its administrative purposes, as it enables users to synchronize their public folders with mobile devices or to create an automatically updated group calendar on Exchange.

Add signature with image in first email and text-only footer in replies

In many business scenarios it makes sense to stamp emails with signatures which include images. The obvious examples that come to mind are social media buttons and marketing banners, but I’m sure you can think of a bunch of other ones (users’ photographs?).

This, however, may come into conflict with the need to not overcrowd the recipient’s eye with too much content or to simply conserve disk space.

CodeTwo Exchange Rules and CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 solve this by allowing to automatically add a full-blown email signature to new emails and a simplified version to subsequent replies and forwards. Continue reading...

New! Display Office 365 email signatures in users’ Sent Items folders

Server-level email signature solutions for Office 365 have several advantages over client-based systems. They are easier to deploy, immune to end-user tinkering, changes are easier to introduce, you don’t have to worry about the variety of email clients and devices in your organization, and so on.

But they also used to have one major drawback – the email signatures were not displayed on the user-end.

Today, we are happy to announce that this is no longer a problem.

CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 has just become the first server-level email signature management system for Office 365 to support displaying signatures in users’ Sent Items folders! Continue reading...

IMAP migration from Google Workspace, IBM/Lotus Notes, Zimbra to Exchange or Office 365

If you are preparing a move from Google Workspace (formerly G Suite), IBM/Lotus Notes or Zimbra (or any other server that supports IMAP) to Microsoft Exchange or Office 365, you may want to take a look at CodeTwo migration solutions.

The two applications have just received an update which, aside from several minor fixes and additions (learn more), includes a major new feature – support for email migrations using the IMAP protocol.

The introduction of migrations via IMAP means that you can now use CodeTwo Exchange Migration and CodeTwo Office 365 Migration to migrate email from IMAP servers to Exchange 2016, 2013, 2010 or Office 365 with the help of their automation, filtering and reporting features.

This allows you to perform the task with more ease and precision than using IMAP migration tools offered natively by Microsoft. Continue reading...

Mailbox backup options across available Office 365 plans

This post was first published on May 17, 2013 and updated on January 15, 2018.

Moving to the Cloud environment is no longer sci-fi – it is a reality. When more and more companies are transferring to Office 365, more administrators are asking the question “Are we safe there? Do we still need to do a backup of our critical data?” Others do not even bother asking, trusting that globally dispersed Microsoft datacenters are ensuring full safety of company’s data.

In the following blog post, I’ll try to answer these questions and check the native data backup and preservation options available in MS Office 365 plans.

It may appear a bit surprising, but there is no backup option available in Office 365 in the traditional sense of the word – not in the form administrators could remember from the on-premises environments. Microsoft concluded that since all information is stored in their datacenters, which provide a super-safe environment, there is no need for such a functionality. Period.

On the other hand, MS is not a charity organization, and storage room on their servers comes with a price. The price changes across different Office 365 plans. Continue reading...
