Office365


Solved : Cannot display the folder.

I found out that opening very large mailboxes (several GB’s) using Outlook 2013 (32 bit) I ran into a not enough free memory problem :

After some troubleshooting I found out that there are 2 solutions. The first one is completely disable caching of the mailbox. But that was not a working solution for me, because sometimes I want to open my email without a working internet connection. This is the solution that worked for me :

Leave use cached exchange mode on, and clear (disable) the download shared folders and download public favorites.

I’ve never seen the error since!


Advanced administration Office 365 3

More and more companies start using Office 365 (including me:-)). The interface is simple and administration is fairly easily to use. But sometimes you wish you could do that little bit more, those things you could do when running Exchange 2013. I’ve got a surprise for you… you can!

Ok, let’s assume you are running Office 365 with one or more licenses. You probably now how to log on. Let’s go to https://portal.microsoft.com and use your credentials to logon :

After entering the credentials you see something like this :

Go to Outlook and you see you inbox. Ok, pay attention. You now see that your url has change to outlook.office365.com/owa/and something more. Let’s change everything after .com/ to /ecp. So you have the following url https://outlook.office365.com/ecp

And (when you are an administrator of your Office 365 account) you now see the following screen :

Wow! That looks familiar! You now have (almost) full control over your Office 365 account. (Which uses Exchange 2013 under the hood).

Now it’s possible to :

  • administrator advanced options
  • access to malware and quarantaine filters
  • track and trace emails
  • create and administrator public folders
  • configure archiving etc

More information soon in part 2
