Delete the meeting reminders by using the MFCMAPI editor

These steps help you remove a meeting reminder that still appears even though the original meeting was removed. This typically occurs if the meeting reminder is corrupted.

Note: Although the MFCMAPI editor is supported by Exchange Online, use caution when you make changes to mailboxes by using this tool. Using the MFCMAPI editor incorrectly can cause permanent damage to a mailbox.
Note The exact steps may vary, depending on the version of MFCMAPI that you’re using.

Windows 10 build 10240 has released to the Fast Ring… Release To Manufacturing (RTM) build???

Windows 10 build 10240 has been released to the Fast Ring. That’s what I’m running on my laptop now. There were heavy rumors yesterday that this is the to Release To Manufacturing (RTM) build and is the one to be publically available on July 29th. But there is no hard confirmation on this by Microsoft yet Build 10240 now available for Windows Insiders in Fast and Slow rings.

“Over the past few days we’ve been preparing our release pipelines and processes, and this build is one step closer to what customers will start to receive on 7/29 …

On Monday we announced that builds from here on will only be available through Windows Update, so to get this one you can either wait and it will be installed automatically.”

Here’s how you prepare to roll it out in your company.

In a previous blog post I wrote about the update you needed for your KMS server to be able to activate Windows 10 clients. Read about that in KB3058168: Update that enables Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 KMS hosts to activate a later version of Windows

Meanwhile Microsoft has also published the Windows 10 client KMS activation which keys can be found here Appendix A: KMS Client Setup Keys

Windows 10

Do note this is the key you use when you activate the Windows 10 Client against a KMS server. It is not the KMS license server key. That one you’ll need to obtain from your valid Microsoft licenses.

new CMDlet parameters missing in Exchange 2013 CU9 KB3075700

When you upgrade your Exchange 2013 server to CU9 some command are missing.

These you need wen you want more control over Sent Items when using shared mailboxes.

Whether a mailbox is used by multiple users as a communication tool, a shared mailbox remains an important business requirement.
Early releases from Exchange 2013 there was a no way to configure this behavior.

In Office 365 and Exchange 2013 CU9, this feature on shared mailboxes is disabled by default.

If you mis it run:
setup.exe /preparead /iacceptexchangeserverlicenseterms

Get-Mailbox -RecipientTypeDetails Shared | Set-Mailbox -MessageCopyForSentAsEnabled $True
Get-Mailbox -RecipientTypeDetails Shared | Set-Mailbox -MessageCopyForSendOnBehalfEnabled $True

Update that enables Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2012 Key Management Service (KMS) hosts to activate a later version of Windows.

Windows 10 will be available on July 29th 2015. Microsoft has prepared for this by already making an Update(KB3058168) that enables Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2012 Key Management Service (KMS) hosts to activate a “later version of Windows”. This must means Windows 10. I do not know if this means that is even for Windows Server 2016. Windows 10 will be activated by a KMS server running this update but it might.

Select the version you need for the KMS server or servers you use and install them.
