Just a quick heads-up regarding Outlook 2016 which was released recently. If you are running Exchange 2007 and you want to use Outlook 2016 I’ve got some bad news for you, this is not going to work. If you try this, you’ll get the following error message:
“The resource that you are trying to use is located on an unsupported version of Microsoft Exchange. Contact your e-mail administrator for assistance.”
The reason is simple: Outlook 2016 does not support Exchange 2007. A workaround could be to use POP3 or IMAP4, but this won’t give the user experience you want, I’m sorry.
The official Microsoft announcement regarding this issue can be found here: Error: Unsupported version of Microsoft Exchange when you use Outlook 2016 to connect an Exchange 2007 account
On Tuesday December 9, 2014 Microsoft released Exchange Server 2013 Cumulative Update 7 and the UM Language Packs for Cumulative Update 7, 105 days after the release of the previous CU6 update. This release is a little overdue because of a last minute issue that was found moments before the original release date of CU7. As long as it improves the quality of the release this shouldn’t be a problem though.
CU7 contains fixes for issues reported by customers, including the Russian Time Zone issue and fixes for issues identified in MS14-075. Updates for MS14-075 are also available for Exchange Server 2013 Service Pack 1 and Exchange Server 2013 Cumulative Update 6. Because of the Microsoft (N-1) support policy this hotfix won’t be available for CU5.

In preparation of a migration from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013 (interorg, so new Active Directory and new Exchange deployment) I had to clean up the Exchange 2007 environment. There was one user that had a 4.5GB Mailbox with over 50,000 items in.

When moving mailboxes from Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010 the move request finishes, but with a status of CompletedWithWarning:
The mailbox is moved to Exchange 2010, but the time to finish the actual migration takes a long time. The first reports of this issue I’ve seen came with Exchange 2010 SP2 RU3.
