Happy Holidays and a Bug-free New Year from CodeTwo!
In the era of security regulations such as GDPR, companies are putting a great effort into making email protection technologies more widely available. Lately, Microsoft has introduced significant changes to Office 365, helping users to safeguard their messages in a quicker and easier way. As people send more and more protected emails on a daily basis, some of you might be wondering: How this works with CodeTwo software?
Exchange Online, similarly to the on-premises Exchange, contains a number of attributes you can set for each user. Personal details, address, organization-related and contact information – it can all be set up in Office 365. While for some Office 365 organizations, standard AD fields are enough, sometimes there is a need for a non-standard field. That is where custom attributes come in handy. In the article, I show how to set up Office 365 custom attributes and what are the possible examples of use for them.
We are excited to let you know that our backup solutions, CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 and CodeTwo Backup for Exchange, have been upgraded to version 2.0 and now support SharePoint on-premises, SharePointOnline and OneDrive for Business backups. Together with mailbox and Public Folders backup features, companies using these tools gain the ability to address more complex backup needs with just one application on board.
Starting October 31, 2018, the support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) versions 1.0 and 1.1 is discontinued in Office 365. This means that TLS 1.0 and 1.1 will still work, but Microsoft will not provide support in case of connection/compatibility issues.

Although prepending special words to emails is definitely easy to achieve natively, it is not possible, using Exchange mail flow rules or Outlook rules, to remove those words automatically from email subject or body when replying or forwarding. If you prepend any keywords to incoming emails like e.g. the word EXTERNAL, to let people know the email originates from the outside of an organization, it will stick to it also in replies and forwards. And this is not what generally the user wants to happen. So if you need to remove any prepended keywords or phrases from email subject or body before the message hits the original sender, you need to either write your own piece of code or use a third party tool like CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro.
And if code writing is not what makes you enthusiastic, then using CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro is your option.
About two weeks ago, Microsoft has announced that Exchange 2019 is already available for download. As for now, it is a preview build but the production version is just around the corner. Along with this announcement, we are happy to let you know that our email signature solutions will support the newest version of Exchange soon.
CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro is a powerful and user-friendly tool for Exchange organizations. It was designed to help admins with their everyday tasks related to email flow control and signature management. The role-based access to certain rules and features of the program makes it also possible to delegate specific tasks to different departments or employees, such as marketing, information security officer, data protection officer, etc. That way, the program can also be used to run marketing campaigns or ensure compliance with the company’s procedures and legal regulations.
J. Peter Bruzzese strikes again (for the fourth time, actually) with his easy-to-read book on a subject that can give quite a hard time to the admins – migration to Office 365. And once again, CodeTwo provides its support for this worthy endeavor.
