Tweet Welcome back to the final post in this 2 part series, Integrating Exchange 2007 MRM with SharePoint Document Libraries.  Today’s post will wrap things up by going through the process of mail enabling an existing SharePoint document library and creating a new managed content setting in Exchange 2007 providing us with the ability to journal a copy of all messages moved into our “Project XYZ” managed folder located in Outlook, into our Shared collaborative Document Library under our Project Team Site. Recall from part 1, that the objective of integrating Exchange MRM with SharePoint...

Posted by on Jul 16, 2009 in Exchange, Exchange 2007, SharePoint, SharePoint 2007

Tweet There are two technologies in my IT Pro life that I am very passionate about, SharePoint and Exchange, so why not incorporate both passions in a single blog post. In this two part series I will be discussing how we can manage email records from our Exchange mailboxes and archive them in SharePoint Document Libraries for compliance or collaboration reasons.  Exchange 2007 introduced a great new feature set in the name of “Messaging Records Management” or commonly referred to as MRM.  Managed Default Folders is a key component of MRM which will assist us in achieving our archiving...

Outlook Web Access redirection via Microsoft ISA 2006

Posted by on Jun 23, 2009 in Exchange, Exchange 2007, ISA

Tweet We all know from experience that advising end users to browse  to https://mail.yourdomain.com/OWA if you are running Exchange 2007 or /exchange if you are running Exchange 2003 is usually problematic .  Oh! and did I forget to mention that it’s HTTPS and not http!  We must admit that not all end users are likely going to remember this URL and at times even struggle to distinguish the difference between secure and non secure sites.  Well if you are running ISA 2006 as an edge or secondary application layer firewall then we can easily simplify the URL that we will publish to our end...

Okay, so let’s begin with everyone’s favourite, Outlook Web Access (OWA) and focus on some of it’s new features.   OWA has come along way since the days I first used it as an end user in Exchange 5.5.  From the outset you will notice that Exchange 2010 OWA adopts the Windows Live theme, see below...

Exchange 2010 Beta, Configuration – Part 2/3

Posted by on May 13, 2009 in Exchange, Exchange 2010

Tweet In our previous post we successfully completed our first Exchange 2010 Install, and after looking back the most difficult part was ensuring all the prerequisites were met for a new Exchange environment .  In today’s post we will continue with our installation with a focus on basic configuration to get mail flowing for internal and external clients, configuring our Anti-Spam agents on the Hub Transport Server (remember we are not utilising the Edge Role in our dev environment) and testing all of this using the brand spanking new Outlook Web Access (OWA).  Just a reminder, the next...

Exchange 2010 Beta, First Look – Part 1/3

Posted by on May 8, 2009 in Exchange, Exchange 2010

Tweet I have been blogging a lot about SharePoint lately and thought I’d post a 3 part series about my other favourite topic of interest, Exchange.  Exchange is one of those technologies that once you spend the time designing, beta testing, dev testing and finally implementing in your production environment, there’s not too much development later in its lifecycle, so when Exchange 2010 was released as a public beta I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and set it up in my dev environment.  I implemented my first Exchange server back in the days of 5.5 and progressively...
