  3. Flagged emails in Shared mailbox not visible in Tasks in Outlook (desktop version)

    I hope to get this feature or function implemented, wherein flagged emails in Shared mailbox to show up in Tasks in Outlook. Currently when we flag emails in the Shared mailbox we don't see it under Tasks, even the flagged emails in the regular mailbox don't show up.

    We hope to have this considered and implemented...

  4. Allow sending as Alias address

    The user should be able to edit the FROM address in Outlook and send an e-mail message as any of the aliases associated with the user mailbox.
    .
    Many other e-mail providers allow this, and Office 365 should also offer it as a possibility.
    .
    .
    Workaround Distribution List:
    If you want the user to send from an alias, but receive answers in their own mailbox, then you must create a Distribution List (DL) and add the alias address to it. Then provide "send as" permission to the user.
    .
    This is too complicated, hard to manage and keep track…

    I want to be able to set, from the admin side, resource mailbox calendars to be shown on users’ calendars.

  6. Disable the feature that is mentioned in MC213897

    We would like to disable the feature that a user who is blocked from purchasing self-service purchase product will be able to submit a request to be unblocked.
    We already determined that our organization doesn’t let users utilize the self-service purchase service. But if users submit the request to unblock in each time, Admins will have more work. We need to disable the feature so that Admins could reduce his task.

  8. Allow duplicate emails in Exchange

    Allow exchange to receive duplicate emails. By default, the message will be delivered only once even if it has the same mailbox as a recipient twice but it would be helpful to be able to receive duplicate emails in exchange even if it has the same mailbox as a recipient twice (such as individually and sent to a Gmail account which has a forwarding rule to the exchange account). This is to verify that the email sent on Gmail was received without logging in to the Gmail

  9. Implement a feature that disable the Welcome message of Office 365 Groups (UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled) by default

    This is because the value of UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled can be changed after creating Office 365 Groups.
    So, we would like to request to implement a feature that can disable it with organization settings by default. And it would be also great if the Welcome message can be disabled when creating a new Office 365 Group.

  10. Exchanging company mails internally using an external mail service

    Exchanging company mails internally using an external mail service


    ■Description(内容):
    組織内のメールのやり取りの場合でも送信コネクタで外部のメールサービスを経由し、暗号化をする運用を行っています。

    本件につきましては、メールの送信先が "メールが有効なセキュリティグループ"の場合についての機能の拡充を希望いたします。
    そのグループの受信設定を "組織内のみ" にしていると、送信元が組織内のユーザーであっても、一度外部を経由しているため、組織外として判定されメールが受信できない動作となっております。
    セキュリティ上、外部を経由した暗号化と、グループの受信設定を "組織内のみ" とすることを両立させたいと考えております。

    Even for internal mail exchanges, they are encrypted using an external mail service via the mail send connector.

    We would like improvements to be made to functionality when a “Mail enabled security group” is set as a mail recipient in this case.
    If that group’s receive setting is set to “only within the organization”, even if the sender of the mail is internal to the organization, since the mail passes through an external service, the mail…

  11. Feature to let users know their messages are audited

    We don’t have an effective method to let users know their messages are audited. For example, I need a feature that picks and counts messages marked as “confidential” within the certain period, and automatically notifies users the number of the messages counted.

  12. I want to export multiple users’ calendars at once

    I want to export multiple users’ calendars at once

    他のユーザーの予定表をエクスポートする場合、Outlook クライアントにてビューを "一覧" に切り替え、Excel にコピーペーストする方法がありますが、複数のユーザーの予定表を一括で処理したい場合は同様の処理が出来ません。
    複数のユーザーの予定表を一括でエクスポートする手段について、管理者がまとめて確認をする場合などに有用だと思いますので、機能の拡充を希望いたします。

    If you want to export another user’s calendar, you can change the view to “List” in the Outlook client and copy-paste into Excel, but there is no similar way to export several users’ calendars all at once.
    Please add a way to export many users’ calendars at once, as it would be useful for admins to check them etc.

  13. Permit manage distribution list using a security group as owner on OWA

    Description of the problem:
    Members of a mail-enabled security group that owns a distribution list cannot see the lists that the group owns on the EAC. However, this is possible from Outlook desktop.

    Resolution steps:
    This behavior is expected because it is the design of Exchange. The technical explanation is that:
    "The Exchange code says that, the ManagedBy property can only take user objects as valid entries, everything else will be ignored (that doesn't mean it won't let you set it to a different object type), it means that if ManagedBy contains anything other than a user object, the value…

  16. 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.

  17. Request Exchange hybrid key for Exchange Server 2019 activation with Hybrid Configuration Wizard (HCW)

    Actually it is not possible to obtain a free Exchange Server 2019 activation with a hybrid key. For earlier Exchange Versions this works trough HCW, but not with Exchange 2019: "Please note that HCW does not provide a 'hybrid key' for Exchange Server 2019. If you need a hybrid key, the latest version that it is available for is Exchange Server 2016."

    This is not customer friendly at all - so please add Exchange 2019 to this feature.
