User not appearing in User Contacts ( GAL ) for Avaya Phone System

Posted by paris on Apr 28, 2017 in Random

A user was not appearing in User Contacts on an Avaya Phone System. This is like a global address list of all phones.


There is actually a Ex Directory tick box that can be turned on for this to happen under the Users/ User Tab make sure this is removed

Posted by paris on Jun 17, 2015 in Code


The following will check members in a group and make sure they have a custom attritbute value

# Connect to Exchange server and load Exchange powershell modules
. 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\bin\RemoteExchange.ps1'
Connect-ExchangeServer -auto
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
$groupdn = (Get-ADGroup '#Group Name').DistinguishedName
$users = Get-ADUser -Filter {(memberof -eq $groupdn)}
foreach($user in $users){
#If user is not
if($user.name -ne "Users Name"){
#if the CustomAttrribte is Blank
if((Get-Mailbox -Identity $user.name | select -ExpandProperty CustomAttribute1) -eq {}) {
#if the CustomAttrribte is not equal to a value
#if((Get-Mailbox -Identity $user.name | select -ExpandProperty CustomAttribute1) -ne "value") {
#Show their name
 ($user.name) } } }

SendOnBehalf of Copying Sent Items Exchange 2003 to 2010 Migration

Posted by paris on Feb 27, 2015 in Random

sendonbehalfofSent items dissappear during an exchange migration between operators and secretaries due to mixes of Exchange 2010 and 2003 for example:

  • Exchange2003User1
  • Exchange2003User2
  • Exchange2010User3


Current Enviroment 2003 : When I send from Exchange2003User1 onbehalf of Exchange2003User2 at the moment it puts the email in the Sent Item of Exchange2003User1


Secretary 2003 and Operator 2010 : When I send from Exchange2003User1 ( 2003 Mailbox ) onbehalf of Exchange2010User3  it replicates the above and puts the Sent Item of Exchange2003User1


Secretary 2010 and Operator 2003 : When I send from Exchange2010User3 onbehalf of Exchange2003User1 the sent email disappears ( does not get stored anywhere )


This means we will need to migrate all the operators before the secretaries move, and the secretaries can move one at a time after. Hope this helps now with UAT group!

Exchange Commands

In Exchange 2010 you can configure this server side to duplicate to both sender and from address.

Set-MailboxSentItemsConfiguration <mailbox id> [-SendAsItemsCopiedTo [Sender|SenderAndFrom]] [-SendOnBehalfOfItemsCopiedTo [Sender|SenderAndFrom]]

Outlook Commands

*NB Outlook will need to be in Cached Mode

Consider the following scenario. You use Outlook 2010 and are a delegate for your manager. Even though theDelegateSentItemsStyle registry value is set to 1, an email message that you send on behalf of your manager is saved in yourSent Items folder.

Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Preferences
Name: DelegateSentItemsStyle
Value: 1
