Outlook Editor Options Paste Text only

Hi All, As many of you i use a lot of Copy & Paste when creating Emails. By default, the Format of the Source will be used - but did you know that you can change that? These are the default Settings If you select and copy a few Lines from a Website This will happen - and you need to use the Paste Context Menu to select "Text only" I've changed it to "Text only" in the Outlook Options When i paste now, by default the Text only is pasted You still can use the Paste Content Menü and select "Keep orginal formating" Regards Andres Bohren

Sending "Reset Password" Links may be considered as phishing in Exchange Online

Hi All, A few Weeks ago i received the Mail below that was filtered out as Junk-E-Mail. So i took a closer look as it is legitimate. It contained a "Forgot Password" Link to theyr Portal. These are classic Phishing Techniques- I took a look at the Mailheaders with the Message Header Analyzer https://mha.azurewebsites.net/ As you can see the Spam Confidence Level (SCL) is high at 5 and it's classified also as spam (SPM). The Phishing Message is very high - i expect the "Password Reset" Link was responsible for that. The Authentication Results are fine: SPF, DKIM and DMARC are all valid. While looking at...

Microsoft Teams returns Shared Mailbox in Search

Hi All, I was wondering why teams Search shows some SharedMailboxes and some not. For Example: There are two Shared Mailboxes "SharedForward" and "SharedForwardSMTP" that can be found over Teams Searchbar on Top (does not matter if Teams Web or Teams for Windows). The fun part is, that you can even send a chat message or call them On the other hand there is a Shared Mailbox Postmaster - that shows no result when searching ...

Exchange Online Litigation Hold an Licensing

Hi All, I've recently had to deal with Litigation Hold. So i did a bit of research. Place a mailbox on Litigation Hold https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/policy-and-compliance/holds/litigation-holds?view=exchserver-2019 When a mailbox is placed on Litigation Hold, items in the Purges subfolder are preserved for the hold duration specified by the Litigation Hold. The hold duration is calculated from the original date an item was received or created, and defines how long items in the Purges subfolder are held.

DOS MZ executable format

Hi all, I recently checked some *.exe, *.com and *.dll Files with Notepad. I did notice, that they all start with the Caracters "MZ" I found some explanation in Wikipedia DOS MZ executable https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DOS_MZ_executable The DOS MZ executable format is the executable file format used for .EXE files in DOS. The file can be identified by the ASCII string "MZ" (hexadecimal: 4D 5A) at the beginning of the file (the "magic number").

Hidden WhatsApp Backup on Google Drive

Hi All, I've always asked myself, where on Google the Whatsapp Backup will be stored. It's kind of hidden and does not count against the Quota of Google Drive. Once logged into Google Drive, click on "Speicherplatz". As you can see the 18GB Whatsapp Backup is not counted against the 17 GB Quota of Google Drive. Then on top right "Sicherungen" Now you can see your Whatsapp Backup Regards Andres Bohren
