CannotEnterFinalizationTransientException On Exchange Move Request

Did not find a lot on the internet on this particular error, so I guess it does not happen very often, but in my case it delayed to move of the mailbox in question by a week or so until I could resolve it. When a mailbox is moving to a different Exchange organization (cross-forest […]

Copy Links and Backlinks Between Users and Shared Mailboxes (automapping)

Automap for shared mailboxes does not work across forests when moving mailboxes. When the user is granted permission to a shared mailbox, the default behaviour of automapping means that the shared mailbox has msExchDelegateListLink set to the DN of the user, and the backlink (hidden in AD by default) on the user is populated with […]

Anonymous Emails Between On-Premises and Exchange Online

When you set up Exchange Hybrid, it should configure your Exchange organizations (both on-premises and cloud) to support the fact that an email from a person in one of the organizations should appear as internal to a recipient in the other organization. In Outlook that means you will see “Display Name” at the top of […]

In a long term hybrid scenario, where you have Exchange Online and Exchange Server configured and mailboxes on both, internet bound email from your on-premises servers can route in two general ways. The first is outbound via whatever you had in place before you moved to Office 365. You might have configured Exchange Online to […]
