Exchange 2010 puts TargetAddress in ProxyAddresses?!

MMT is the BPOS-D migration tool and it uses Exchange 2010’s built in move service called MRS (Mailbox Replication Service).  MMT, through MRS, analyzes the mailbox, enforces any customer migration rules (such as ignore calendar items older than 2 months), moves the contents of the mailbox, validates the contents, strips mailbox attributes on the customer…

Microsoft Online and SBS 2003

Windows XP/XPe and Remote Desktop Services Single Sign On

This week I was working with a retail customer that has plans to place HP Windows XP Embedded devices at their many retail stores.  Applications will be served up either locally on the XPe device, through a remote desktop, or through Remote Applications. There is a slight challenge with this setup because technically Microsoft supports…

My iPhone 3G Review

Call me a traitor.  Call me weak minded to the Apple Jedi mind trick.  Yes I have a 3g iPhone, the cheapest one of course. My Treo 750, which I really liked, was starting to have some battery fade.  In addition, I was using the IE browser on my Treo more frequently, with more and…

New Role for Mhass

So I finally rolled off my last gig, which had occupied me for the last 18 months.  In the last 18 months, I learned a lot about how my customer did business, and thanks to a great account team, learned how Microsoft does business. I liked the business aspect of the job a lot, enough…

Automated install of Outlook Conferencing Addins

My customer (Mike Vrabel) and I got completely frustrated today in trying to find a way to deploy the Outlook Conferencing Addin for Live Meeting 2007 via SMS.  The Office web site gives you a ConfAddins_Setup.exe which is neither an MSI or provides you switches for automated install or answer file. Some digging turned up…

Sony is brilliant, PS3 may surpass Xbox 360 in the future

No.  Is the PS3 a cheaper and better Blue-ray player than stand alone players?  Yes.  Not only is it the cheaper or the same…

Using Facebook for socializing at work

I have been reluctant to jump on MySpace, Twitter, etc because it seemed to be so personal focused. I honestly didn’t have much I wanted to share with public or even friends that they weren’t getting from me and my family directly. There has been so much buzz about Facebook and it’s ability to cater to…

SharePoint 3.0 WSP Deployment Scripts

I have been working with a customer over the last few weeks to come up with a mechanism that their Configuration Management (CM) team can use to deploy custom WSS code.  Fortunately, WSS allows our developers to wrap up their code into a Solution (WSP files).  The solution can have things like templates that go on the…

Transformers, go see it!

The red and blue cab of an 18 wheeler rolls into the center of the dark alley with led’s and  lights blazing, Autobot logo right on the grill.  A bunch of spinning and servo sounds accompany the all too familiar whah-whah-whah-kuk sound of Transformer transformation.  Everyone knows that it is Optimus Prime, but as soon as he…
