We recently rolled a new Windows Server 2008 with Exchange 2010 installed on it here are some of the cool new features that are now available from the web.
Ever wanted to have a little control from the web for administering Exchange? Well, it’s possible.
Login to a mail account depending on what you want to change you will need to make sure the account has sufficient rights for making the changes.
First thing you will notice is the change to the look of OWA which now give you conversation history just like Gmail does on their messages.
The next thing you will notice is how much more control you have for delegating your account and sharing information, as these are now allowed through the web.
Once you are logged in, change the URL to the following
https://mail.domainname.com/ecp or you can click “Options” in the top right side of the webpage and it will send you to the same address
From here you can choose what to manage, for instance you can choose “Myself”, “My Organization”, or “Another User”
If you choose “Myself” you will see the following
Which gives you the ability to manage your Account, your e-mail, Public Groups, Mobile Devices and other settings.
If you choose “My Organization” you will see the following.
From here you can manage user mailboxes, groups, the external contacts, and the roles that user are a part of in Exchange
You can also get delivery reports on mailboxes.
Choosing “Another User’ give you the same options as “Myself” only for the user you have selected.
If you have thought about and upgrade to your Microsoft Exchange server now might be the time to make that step.
