  2. Allow the ability to merge Office 365 accounts seamlessly

    Allow two 365 accounts to be merged without having to rebuild email accounts, move files etc... just move the domain from one 365 account to another after proper verification -- or even by just calling Microsoft support

  4. View Current Automapping setting

    Currently there is no way to view whether Automapping of a mailbox is enabled or disabled in office 365. It would be nice to be able to view this value in either powershell or the GUI.

    Additionally it would be nice to be able to turn automapping on or off via the EMC instead of only powershell.

  5. Allow to see private emails in shared mailboxes in outlook (in OWA you can see them)

    Short:

    On shared mailboxes in office 365 emails that are flagged by the sender as private are hidden. In OWA they are visible.

    Long:

    Users having full access to the shared mailbox do not see emails sent with a private flag - and they do not get informed about it. The emails are just silently hidden by outlook without any further notice. Quite stupid, for a shared mailbox (e.g. incoming orders!)

    We discovered that by coincidence: Our users were concerned because the number of unread emails was increasing - although there were no unread emails visible for them.

    If they…

    Thank you for your responses. We appreciate that you’ve taken the time to provide us with feedback to help make our products better.

    We’re actively working on significant improvements to the end user experience with the feature across Outlook clients. This includes improvements to the UX, the classification algorithms, and controls.

    Today, admins have a Power-Shell cmdlet that allows them to control the Clutter feature on a per mailbox level. Details of this can be found here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt586787%28v=exchg.160%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

    Our decision to provide the cmdlet based control for Clutter was based on early feedback we received on the Clutter feature.

    We will continue to improve the admin controls based on the continued feedback. Considering the responses on this forum, it would be helpful to better understand the gaps in the current admin control story. Do you believe the gap here is in not having a tenant level control or not having…

  8. Provide a powershell interface from admin area - so you can use powershell directly from the portal page.

    Having this ability to run PowerShell directly will remove the need to connect from on-premises to perform PowerShell tasks. This will also help 100% Mac shops - which cannot run PowerShell at all.

  9. Delegated Admin (Partner) able to convert tennant mailbox to shared.

    Currently there is an issue with permissions if you use the partner delegated admin to convert a user to a shared mailbox. You must log into the tenant as a global admin in order to accomplish this.

    As a delegated admin we should be able to manipulate mailboxes as needed to ensure an enjoyable client experience.

  10. Billing Notifications vs. Global Admins

    Any Global Admin automatically gets our Billing Statements. Why is this so rigid? I would like to be able to add an email address to the Billing Notifications, say, "Accounts Payable@ domain.com" but I don't want the Accounting department here to be a Global Admin in Exchange.

    By the same token, I might have outside consultants that I want to be Global Admins, but I don't need them getting our billing statements.

  12. Increase 30 messages per minute limit

    The 30 message per minute limit causes problems for software that needs to send out to many users. Now that we've migrated to Exchange Online our payroll system can no longer send out payslips because of this feature. Very limiting and a very low limit. It should at least be able to be configured to allow accounts to be exempted or have different limits.

    Our service is designed to protect the resources and ensure that certain users will not overwhelm it and cause latency for others. This limit is in place to protect against spike sending that we wish to discourage. As such, we have no plans to change the limit for regular mailboxes.

    Where possible, we encourage customers who have these requirements to seek solutions that do not send emails all at once, can make use of DLs, or use services like Dynamics or third-party services to send large volumes of emails to customers or student and parents.

    However, we are thinking about alternatives we can provide to solve this issue of higher sending for automated email scenarios to address this customer need.

  13. Allow admins to turn off likes and @mention - PLEASE!

    Once again, OWA has new 'features' added which are causing problems - particularly in a School environment such as ours. Likes and @mentions are flying about the system - teachers email a group of students who click the 'like' button and the teacher then gets loads of pings back which they have to deal with! Obviously, this could be useful but PLEASE release an admin UI for the control panel when you add these features so we can CHOOSE whether to let users have these features!

  14. Deleting an item in a shared mailbox should move the item to the shared mailbox's deleted items

    Today you have to use the regkey DelegateWastebasketStyle to control the behaviour when deleting items in a shard mailbox.

    This should have a PowerShell command, just like for sent items (set-mailbox shared@contoso.com -MessageCopyForSentAsEnabled $True)

    One of the companys i manage Office365 for has, no AD which means no GPO's to use with regkeys, no consistensy in Office versions and thus this gets unmanageble.

    Please add a way for me to control this centrally in Exchange Online.

  15. Allow automapping on shared mailbox folders independent of access permission type.

    Auto mapping to a shared mailbox should be allowed even if the user doesn't have Full permissions. Many times I have to manually add in Outlook and on a large organization of over 3000 users is time consuming.

  16. enable conversation view for shared mailbox to include sent messages

    It would be very beneficial to have the Conversation View show sent emails in a shared mailbox. It appears that the conversation view does not show emails from sent or any other folders in the INBOX.

  17. Exchange Online Powershell with Service Principal

    I'd like to run the exchange online powershell with a service principal. The use case is easy - we're running a background service setting some specific configuration on user mailboxes and don't want to use an admin account for that. It's sad this is not on the graph directly possible but at least make SPNs available for use with Exchange Powershell.

    Currently message trace timezone is set to UTC 0. This is really annoying. We should be able to change the timezone for this. There are posts on the forums going back to 2012 requesting this feature... please implement it.

  19. Provide external user access to shared mailbox created inside the organization

    There should be option to provide external user access to shared mailbox.
    Currently only internal user with license have access to shared mailbox. But there should be option such that external users can be added as member of shared mailbox created inside the organization since shared mailbox have feasibility to co-ordinate with external domain.

  20. Support conversion to shared mailbox for synced users

    Currently a mailbox for a synced user can be converted to shared in EAC. This results in a corrupted mailbox object and an Azure AD object that still requires a license. See https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2710029. Customers need to move the mailbox to on-premises Exchange, convert it to shared and then move the mailbox back to Exchange Online. This process can be cumbersome and even worse, if customer is not aware of this issue the shared mailbox will be removed after the grace period expires.

    It should be supported to convert a mailbox to shared for a synced user in Exchange Online,…
