  1. Branding Quarantine notification mail and scheduling when notification goes out


    1. It would be nice if you could extend some of the company branding to the quarantine notification email. Add in a logo and maybe some contact info for the helpdesk or whomever. Also the ability to add a link to the quarantine site so they can manage more than one message if they so choose.


    2. Other anti spam providers allow you to schedule when the quarantine message goes out. It's nice to be able to set it to arrive in the users mailbox around the time they arrive. This way they have the latest and greatest.

  3. Ability to perform eDiscovery collections for specific Outlook Folders

    I have a requirement from a large customer (85K users) that needs to be able to perform eDiscovery collections for specific Outlook folders. We can do date range and Full Mbx collections, but not specific folders. This was possible on-premises, but not in Exchange Online ????

  4. safelinks whitelist domain with wildcard

    Safelinks currently requires you enter each url you'd like to allow through. I'd like to have safelinks allow a wildcard domain. for instance we get many emails from our own systems pointing to internal urls. sometimes those emails get distorted because the url's are listed in plain text and replaced with the safelink.

    I'd like to allow wildcard https://.mydomain.com/ to allow domains such as web.mydomain.com/page and test.mydomain.com/stuff to go through with by making one simple rule vs theoretically hundreds.

  5. Advanced Threat Protection and Dynamic Delivery of emails

    With Dynamic Delivery, email is delivered with a provisional attachment that indicates that the original attachment is being scanned by ATP and will be delivered soon. If this email if forwarded before the original attachment is released by ATP, the recipient of the forwarded email will receive the provisional attachment and never see the original attachment once released to the first recipient.
    This is a problem for business where many executives on the move use mobile phones to routinely forward emails to team members for follow-up. We also have users who setup Outlook rule that forward emails to other users. …

  6. Allow duration of Retention label to be changed when the retention is based on when the label is applied

    When a retention label duration is based on the date the label is applied, the retention period may not be changed. It can be changed if the Created or last modified is chosen. This is impacting our ability to use the retention policies as they need to be active from the date of application with the capability to change duration in the future.

  7. Add support for CAA records in DNS panel

    I'd very much like to see support for CAA records in the future =).
    See https://support.dnsimple.com/articles/caa-record/

    The check for this record is going to be mandatory with September 2017. The security of all our certificates and domains would be greatly improved if we could set this record :)

  9. Allow us to create alerts for sign in Failures and Successes based off of IP Geo Location. Alerts if log in success outside of country.

    I would like to Create and alert if there are failed login attempts or successful login attempts from IP addresses originating outside of my City/State/Country.

    Allow us to either white list IP addresses and alert for any not on the white list. Blacklist IP addresses and alert based off of just black list. Select Country regions and alert if selected countries IP addresses are the originating IP. Allow us to alert for only failures, only successes, or both.

  10. Enable Customization for Directory Based Edge Blocking feature in EOP

    Currently Directory Based Edge Blocking Feature in EOP does not support Mail Enabled Public Folders and Dynamic Distribution Groups. If customer have any of these recipient types then they have to disabled DBEB for receiving external emails routed to tenant through EOP. It will be great if we can provide an interface to manage DBEB to which customer can explicitly add recipients which are picked up by EOP. This will be very helpful for standalone EOP customer who would want to use DBEB feature to thwart Directory based harvest attacks

  11. report message additional mailbox

    The Report Message add in is great, but there is a limitation around not supporting additional mailboxes (shared\functional). Would be great if this add-in could support additional mailboxes as well as the primary mailbox.

  12. New-InboxRule cmdlet needs CreationDate added

    When an account compromise happens, the majority of times the threat actor will create a new-inboxrule to hide their activity. Currently when new-inboxrules are created there is no logging for the Creation Date via powershell cmdlet. If we could get this logged, it would help tremendously with account compromises. Also adding a historical rule creation view for past 90 days would be beneficial as well.

  13. Add search for failed login attempts to Audit Log Search

    Right now the audit log search allows for searching user sign-ins but not failed login attempts. This can be accessed by exporting the events but having that feature available in the search would make it more convenient to get an at-a-glance view of failed attempts and the IP addresses that are attempting to get access. This is not to say I don't trust Microsoft's ability to detect suspicious logins; it's more for our own situational awareness of where *********** attempts are coming from.

  14. Anti-phishing policy | User notification | Self release

    It's is great that Microsoft provides the possibility to block phishing messages but it is not clear why it is not able to provide the same functionality like in the anti-spam policy , so that the user gets an info that a mail has been moved to the quarantine and he could preview the message and decide to let it there or to release.
    Anti-phishing policy is no perfect, it creates a lot of false positives and the user will not be informed in order to check the mail and release it.
    I didn't see any argument why Microsoft is…

  15. Add functionality to re-deliver failed messages from Message Trace

    Third party spam filters, such as the offerings from Barracuda, MXLogic, and many others, have the ability to allow administrators to force re-delivery of messages that may have failed due to either a restrictive rule or a SMTP alias that did not exist for a recipient (typically true with migrations from non-Exchange based systems).

    It would be highly beneficial to admins to have this control and allow for forced re-delivery of messages as necessary.

  16. Need to have the limit of 100 site collections increased for inclusion/exclusion in a retention policy.

    Need to have the limit of 100 site collections increased for inclusion/exclusion in a retention policy. To meet business requirements where they may be thousands of site collections but not all require the same retention policy, this is very limiting limit.

  17. Delegate Audit Log access by Activity Type

    Please add the ability to delegate read-access to audit logs by Activity type. For example, access to just "Power BI activities" audit logs, or "Microsoft Teams activities" audit logs.

    This would be useful as different groups within IT manage the usage of different O365 services, yet they have to be given access to all or nothing.

  18. Retention Labels - Time Left - Report all files with label

    Hi,

    Would it be possible to have a report system or dahsboard, which would report on Time left of the retention period for all items or even just files that have a particualar label applied that the user has created.

    For example. A calculated column that shows the item, location, retention/deletion, time remaining before it happens, based on whether it was, either labeled, created, last modifed. (hope it makes sence)

    Currently you have to use the 'content search' area [search and investigation] and do the calculations there within excel on any given report.

    see the post here for some more…

  20. Remove Limit of 60 users for New Anti-Phishing Policy

    Why is there a limit of 60 users that can be added to the new Anti-Phishing Policy? I would expect to have this very important feature available to ALL of our O365 users. Please remove this limitation so that we can add ALL of our O365 users to this new Anti-Phishing Policy
