I wanted to create an automated alert that would notify me of Office 365 mailboxes that were approaching full, and found a terrific PowerShell reporting script by Ruud (LazyAdmin.nl). If you have not checked out his blog, stop reading now and head on over there. There is a ton of great scripts and write ups! The script connects to your Office 365 environment and exports the following:
- Display name
- Primary Email address
- Mailbox type
- Last user action time
- Total mailbox size
- Mailbox Free Space (NEW!)
- Deleted item size
- Item Count
- Deleted Item Count
- Issue Warning Size
- Prohibit Send Receive Quota (max mailbox size)
- Archive size (if the user has an archive)
- Archive Item Count
- Archive Mailbox Free Space (NEW!)
- Archive Deleted Item Count
- Archive warning quota
- Archive quota
It also allows you to filter the mailbox type that you want to gather results for. By … Continue...
I was recently tasked with clearing out a Yammer Communities auto-welcoming posts. If you are not familiar with auto-welcoming posts, Yammer used to automatically post a message whenever someone joined a community. It looked something like this, “Bradley Wyatt joined the Lazy Administrator network. Take a moment to welcome Brad.”
Thankfully, Microsoft removed this feature so your community is not littered with auto welcoming messages anymore. But, if your community existed prior to this change you may be faced with hundreds, if not thousands of these posts that you may want to remove.
- Register a New App so we can interface with the Yammer API
- Next, click “Generate a developer token for this application.” Save the token for later as you will need it.
- Next, navigate to the Yammer Admin page and click “Export Network Data” under Content and Security.
- Select the date range you want
With the rise of Phishing emails, a popular method to help your users not get phished is to append warnings to emails that either originate outside the organization or if they originate outside the organization and the display name matches that of a internal user. I myself have posted a blog on how to do this and get around the mail flow limitations.
A problem with this method however, is since it prepends a message or warning to the email, users can no longer view previews of the emails either in outlook or on mobile because all they will see is the warning message. A possible solution that I have rolled out several times is to prepend a warning unicode character (⚠️) to the message. The warning symbol was approved as part of Unicode 4.0 in 2003 and added to emoji 1.0 in 2015. As long as the receiving end … Continue...
