This URL isn’t presented in the start menu/modern UI or particularly obvious after the installation. If you’re setting up a greenfield environment the URL above should get you straight to the new Exchange 2013 Admin Center.
I don’t see the 2013 Exchange Admin Center when I browse to ECP, I get redirected to the old Exchange 2010 ECP page
Exchange 2010 ECP
There is a caveat if you are coexisting with Exchange 2010, if this is the case you will have to specify the Exchange version in the URL to get to the Exchange 2013 Admin Center:
Configuring send as, send on behalf and providing full access to a mailbox are fairly common requests. In Exchange 2010, you could set the send as and full access permissions by right clicking the user in the Exchange Management Console under recipient configuration and mailbox. Send on behalf required you to dig a little deeper into the configuration, and head into the users properties, mail flow settings tab and delivery options. In Exchange 2013 they have moved these options into a single location, which seems sensible. We’ll look at how to achieve the above with the GUI and Powershell in Exchange 2013.
With the GUI
Open EAC (Exchange Admin Center), browse to recipients, select the user you would like to grant the permission for and click the pencil to edit. In this example, I would like to grant Branch Warren the right to send as Ronnie Coleman so we select Ronnie and choose edit.
Choose the option mailbox delegation at the bottom and add the user you wish add the permission to. In this example, we want to grant Branch Warren the right to send as Ronnie Coleman.
Send on Behalf – This will grant Branch send on behalf permissions for Ronnie
Apple iPhone syncing contacts with Microsoft Exchange server
New contacts default to the “On my iPhone” contact group, which aren’t synced with the Exchange account. This could cause contact loss when upgrading or switching iPhones, or will cause missing contacts on multiple devices e.g. iPads. I came across this earlier when someone mentioned their upgrade had missing contacts (turned out to be over 40). iOS version 5 seems to set Exchange as the default contact group, I believe this effects iOS 4 and below. You can change it in this location:
There are a few paid apps that can move contacts across the groups, or another popular solution is to “share” the iPhone contact and email it to yourself, from there you can save it as a contact in the right group. After a bit more digging I stumbled across Orbicontact which was free is only £0.69/$0.99 and has the functionality needed.
This is a question I’ve seen pop up a lot which can be achieved multiple ways. If you are looking for a fully fledged signature manager I would recommend something like CodeTwo’s ExchangeRules, you can trial this without paying if you don’t mind an advert being appended to your email, otherwise their prices are pretty reasonable.
Anyway, today we will look at the free way! There are 3 parts to achieving the goal.
1. VBS script to generate signature
This creates a very simple signature which pulls attributes from active directory.
Set objUser = CreateObject(“WScript.Network”)
userName = objUser.UserName
domainName = objUser.UserDomain
FUNCTION GetUserDN(BYVAL UN, BYVAL DN)
Set ObjTrans = CreateObject(“NameTranslate”)
objTrans.init 1, DN
objTrans.set 3, DN & “\” & UN
strUserDN = objTrans.Get(1)
GetUserDN = strUserDN
