Reset folder language to match Outlook Web Access language


So in the recent time i have been working with a customer to integrate Exchange Online mailboxes into a customer support application witch are using POP. The application throwed a error message:

02:47:34.513 Trc 21628 [MsgIn-2] <pop-client1> Mailbox account 'yourmailbox@domain.no'[https://outlook.office365.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx:443]: opening mail folder 'INBOX'
02:47:34.748 Std 21627 [MsgIn-2] <pop-client1> No INBOX Folder found on Corporate Email Server

This indicates that the software witch is polling emails need the inbox folder to be “Inbox” and not “innboks” (witch is Inbox in norwegian). So we need to change the default folders to match the language set in OWA.

  1. Logon to your account on outlook.office.com
  2. Head into to the Gear icon next to your profile picture in the top-right corner and in the bottom select: Your app settings-> Mail

3. Select General in the left pane and then click on: Region and timezone.

4. In language, set your language for OWA and check the checkbox witch also renames the default folders to match the selected language and hit the save button.

Keep private Teams private in Microsoft Teams

February 28, 2018 Leave a comment

As of 23. of march 2018 all private teams will be searchable for all users.
Users can then apply for group membership.
If you have groups in your organization that you still want to keep completly private then the Office 365 unified group should be hidden from the Global Address List (GAL).

Run this Powershell command to hide it from GAL:

“Set-UnifiedGroup -Id “Groupname”-HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $True”

RDP Scaling on high resolution screens


I have been running on a Surface book for the last couple of weeks and is very satisfied with the screen resolution on this machine. that said the operatingsystem is running on 175% zoom 🙂 but when using for example “Remote Desktop Connection Manager” to gain access to my servers i`m realy strugling since the resolution is set to 3000 x 2000. therefor i found this small hack to fix it.

  • uncheck this checkbox in compatibilities settings on the shortcut or exe-file

(PS: sorry for the norwegian screenshot:))

Convert from user mailbox to shared mailbox

September 28, 2016 Leave a comment

From time to time i run into a little problem with the Office 365 Admin Center when trying to convert user mailboxes into shared mailboxes.
when this occours i usualy just use Powershell to convert the mailbox into shared mailbox.

To do this you have to connect your Powershell to the Office 365 tenant and run a oneliner for converting the mailbox.

Here is how to connect to Office 365:
Import-Module MSOnline
$O365Cred = Get-Credential “adminuser@YOURTENANT.onmicrosoft.com”
$O365Session = New-PSSession –ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell -Credential $O365Cred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $O365Session
Connect-MsolService -Credential $O365Cred

When connected then use this single line to convert the mailbox:
Set-Mailbox “Your@mailbox.no” -Type shared

 

Installing modules is easy – Azure and Office365


This little post is to get you up and running with Azure PowerShell so that you can manage your Azure subscriptions and Office365 tenants in 10 minutes after booting up an fresh install of Windows 10.

I have tested this in the following Windows builds:
10586 (1511 build – Windows 10)
10586(TP4 build – Windows Server 2016)
14328 (insider build – Windows 10)

Simply start PowerShell in Elevated mode (right click on PowerShell and start in Admin mode.

type these 3 lines – one at a time.

“Install-Module AzureRM -force:$true”
“Install-Module Azure -force:$true”
“Install-Module MSOnline -force:$true”

When the installation is finished you need to set the execution policy to “Unrestricted” to be able to connect to Office365 tenants.

“Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted”

You are good to go! 🙂
Good luck playing around with Azure and Office365

Error when expanding disks in Windows Server 2008


If you try to expand disks on a Windows Server 2008 and you get an error message like this:
notenoughspace

The resolution that worked for me is to do an Manual rescan of the disk.
Do like this:
rescan
