Recently had a client with Office 365 trying to Cache a Shared Mailbox. Outlook brought up a load of Sync Errors

Your server administrator has limited the number of items you can open simultaneously. Try closing messages you have opened or removing attachments and images from unsent messages you are composing.

If the server is self hosted you can remove the restriction via  : http://henrysluiman.blogspot.com.au/2013/02/how-to-increase-number-of-open-items.html

Microsoft fix for this is removed the Cache! https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3115602/performance-problems-when-you-try-to-access-folders-in-a-secondary-mai

After rebuilding the OST and Profile and still no luck I started Outlook in Safemode which enabled the downloading of the emails

Once downloaded I could start Outlook Normally and all worked fine

There are three ways to forward mail from one user to another in Exchange

  1. Exchange Forwarding Most Common – Done by Administrator
  2. Inbox Rule – Done by User
  3. Hub Transport Rule – Done by Administrator

1 and 3 can be checked easily and there will be references of when this is done and not done usually in tickets , however users can enable Inbox rules by themselves then contact your later to disable the forward.

Here is how to check for forwarding or redirecting rules on mailbox in 365

 foreach ($i in (Get-Mailbox -identity %USERNAME%))
{ Get-InboxRule -Mailbox $i.DistinguishedName | where {$_.ForwardTo} | fl MailboxOwnerID,Name,ForwardTo }
  foreach ($i in (Get-Mailbox -identity %USERNAME%))
{ Get-InboxRule -Mailbox $i.DistinguishedName | where {$_.ReDirectTo} | fl MailboxOwnerID,Name,RedirectTo}

To Disable
Disable-InboxRule -Identity "%NAME OF RULE%" -Mailbox "%USERNAME"

When clicking on the down arrow in Office 365 to change Reply to all to Reply , for some reason the menu showed at the top of the browser

Clearing Cache did not fix this or Zoom size

Reset Chrome to default settings ( which still keeps Favorite bookmarks but clears plugins ) fixed this

Recently after setting an Office 365 Mailbox user up via Windows Live as they did not have Microsoft Outlook installed and didn’t want to use Webmail

You need to use IMAP settings for this as there is no Active Sync connector

After setting up Windows Live , a test email to the user’s self from himself never reached the Inbox after it was sent. If I sent one from Webmail it would come through

After research , it turns out it was going into Junk Email in Office 365 after being sent from smtp.office365.com on port 587 and this folder was not syncronised in the Windows Live settings so did not show.

I had to disable the junk mail filter or add a rule which would whitelist the own user from Junk Mail!

Office-365-New[1]A user added a secondary mailbox of another user in Outlook 2013 after permissions where added via the 365 portal , however the only folder showing for the shared mailbox was clutter.

I logged the user into 365 webmail and opened the shared mailbox via web and it showed all folders proving permissions were fine.

I removed the permissions via powershell and re-added with Automapping to $false as it seems like this can cause problems with Outlook 2013 however did not resolve the problem.

I turned off cached mode and restarted Outlook and it displayed all folders. After deleting the OST and re-creating it , the folders showed fine
