comment Issues with syncing one drive intiailly
The next gen client will start rolling out next month officially. MS is updating the client so you don't need the registry update. It is however a new install - so it won't be updated thru the normal Office update.

comment Workflow Manager Config won't recognize open ports
Have you disabled the firewall completely and checked behavior. Do you have any anti-malware running? If so disable that and try again and see if the error is the same.

comment Is Office365 Message Encryption actually secure?
I use the OTP quite a bit - if they don't already have a MS account linked to the address I sent, it can get messy, and it doesn't make it any more secure (it might do the opposite if they get frustrated and then choose not to participate).

comment 2010 Hybrid Exchange Decommission Free License
Look at Okta - they have a "free" version for connecting one application (which can be O365) so you can try it out.

comment 2010 Hybrid Exchange Decommission Free License
The SPLA situation may muddy things and I can't give an answer to that. I've worked with enterprises in the past and we've deployed with MS adjusting their VLA's (fully aware of the deployment model). Your provider may have requirements that prevent you from "bringing your own license" - I would have them contact their MS licensing rep to determine eligibility. They should have direct contact to a reputable source and if they are good partner will do so despite potentially losing the SPLA revenue. Nothing about MS licensing is straight forward, but they do work with you to get best result.

comment Will my Office 2013 clients be automatically updated to Office 2016?
@msemack is spot on. Click2Run updates do not come thru windows update. IF - you have deployed via MSI, than you would stick to traditional methods of updating - and Microsoft won't be updating your client as that is only for Click2Run installation pointing back to MS for updates.

comment PowerShell - Set-RemoteMailbox to move to Office365 - object couldn't be found
You don't have to migrate. This answer is correct. When you run enable-rmeotemailbox it will create the properties needed for an EXISTING AD object to get a cloud mailbox. You then sync the account and assign a license and a mailbox is created correctly for the Hybrid setup. New-RemoteMailbox is used to create a NEW AD Object with the proper properties set for creating the mailbox. Again requiring a sync and license assignment in O365.

comment SCCM+ MS Office 2013 deployment
Why do you think you have to use SCCM? If you are running via GPO today - what issues are you encountering? There is no functional reason SCCM would have to be used - it can make deployment and tracking easier, but the setup certainly is not.

comment how to mail-enable an exchange 2013 contact?
Your question was a bit confusing about what was going on outside of the mail contact part. Can you add detail on how you are forwarding those messages, and what's the mail flow path (i.e. all devices, service, etc handling that traffic in and out).

comment Outlook profile during staged migration
You can - but it will pop up every time Outlook starts. The only fix is to create a new profile.

comment Can't Connect Outlook to Office 365 Exchange Server
In addition they have a tool that can validate connectivity from the client side you can use as well. I would start with the setup tool (it will tell you what you need to install), if you have issues after that look at walking thru the recovery assistant ( configure.office.com/sara/SetupE.exe )

comment SharePoint ULS logs HTTP 304 Not Modified responses with errors - by design?
Can you add context to what you are seeing with the 304? What is it trying to access in there, and what is it returning after the 304? It's very possible, especially if you have upgraded from a previous version where Microsoft has internal controls to replace referenced objects.

comment Upgrading from SharePoint Foundation 2013 to SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise
@kamalpreet SharePoint is full of inconsistencies, and even a few features that you can see that just are not completed (company profiles come to mind). it's just the nature of the product. Foundation does not include all the "bits" you need which is why just putting in a key won't work.

comment Where can I get SLA / Outage information for Microsoft Exchange Online *greater than 30 days old*?
@LamonteCristo - Simply re-wording it to ask how to do it, would probably cover it. In any case - no more than 30 days is not available. You need to track it with a 3rd party service or something like SCOM, or archive data from API/RSS feeds over a period of time. There may be some services that offer this - but take it with a grain of salt as each data center and tenant will be a bit different.

comment User responded to an Outlook 2013 calendar invite and received a message saying it did not reach the recipient
Is this an ongoing problem - or just the one message. It could have just been a transient error. If she has the message I would try to change to tentative or decline, and try sending another invite. It you no longer see it - you may not be able to get to the root cause.

comment Migration and Domain Rename
I don't know that "scared" is how I positioned it, but to each his own - as long as the plan is solid and good risk management strategies are in place.

comment Exchange 2010 migration to Office 365 with ADFS
If your not using a MS partner to help you, you will still qualify for Microsoft's onboarding service. They will help you plan, deploy, and migrate to O365 at no additional cost to you. To qualify you need to purchase at least 150 seats of E3 (its in your best interest to bulk purchase to get that incentive vs. Smaller seat purchases). You have 90 days from subscriptions purchase to use that benefit.

comment Get rid of Skype for Business warning about Exchange
There is no way to set policy for all users with self service download. Actually you can't do that period, You could script a solution that updates the registry and provide that as a self service tool or just send them email or webpage with instructions.
