Outlook roaming signatures vs CodeTwo email signatures

[Update]: This blog post was updated on June 17, 2020.

Microsoft is going to introduce roaming signatures, a new feature for Outlook for Windows. The new feature changes the way Outlook email signatures are stored. The signatures will no longer be stored on a local drive – they will now be stored in the user mailbox, which will make them available on all devices running Outlook for Windows that have been configured with this user’s email account. This feature will be rolled out and automatically enabled in Q4 of 2020 for Microsoft 365 users, but users who use Microsoft 365 Monthly Channel (early adopters) might get this feature earlier – in late July or August, according to Microsoft 365 roadmap item 60371. As there is a lot of inaccurate information regarding the feature, let’s explain what this feature really is and whether it affects CodeTwo solutions at all.

Office 365 migration delivered in a conversational way

Once every couple of years, there is a time when a considerable number of Exchange server admins begin to seriously consider migrating mailboxes from their on-premises servers to the Office 365 cloud. This usually takes place when the end of support date is approaching rapidly for another on-prem Exchange server, just like in the case of Exchange 2010 at the moment. Or when a new Office 365 datacenter is introduced, just like recently in Germany. Contrary to popular belief, migrating mailboxes to Office 365 doesn’t have to be an overwhelming task. If you don’t believe it, you surely haven’t read J. Peter Bruzzese’s “Conversational Office 365 Migrations” or used CodeTwo Office 365 Migration yet.

How to disable Read Aloud in Outlook and Word

I’ve recently stumbled into quite an annoying problem in desktop versions of Word 2019 and Outlook 2019 regarding the Read Aloud functionality, which I needed to turn off. As you may already know, Read Aloud is a neat text-to-speech feature that, as the name implies, is designed to read the text from your Word documents files or Outlook emails aloud. So, what’s the problem here? Well, first of all, I don’t use it. However, it often happens that the program starts reading my text even though I don’t want it to. This happens because I accidentally turn this functionality on with the Alt+Ctrl+Space keyboard shortcut (e.g. if I miss the Ctrl+X or Ctrl+C shortcut).

How to disable Read Aloud in Outlook and Word

In this article, I would like to share my solution on how to disable Read Aloud in Outlook and how to remove the shortcut key in Word that turns this feature on.
