Simplified sharing from OneDrive for Business from the web

Description:
We’re updating the user experience for sharing files and folders in OneDrive for Business from the web.  This new sharing experience simplifies the flow of emailing links to colleagues and guests and copying links to the clipboard. Like the original experience, the new experience presents two choices to users who want to share: type email addresses to send a link in email, or copy a link to the clipboard. Both the “Share” and “Get a link” command support all three types of links in OneDrive, including anonymous access links (accessible by anyone), company shareable links (accessible to those within your organization) and restricted links (accessible to a custom set of users both in and outside your organization). This allows users to more easily choose their method of sharing (email or copying to clipboard) while retaining the full set of permissions choices. As always, the new sharing experience respects all IT sharing and access policies that are in place, so users will be able to get their work done while complying with the practices established by their IT administrators. It is rolling out to customers this month and we expect it to be complete in February.

Deprecation of SHA1 certificate support may affect EOP Filtering Only customers

Description:
There is a world-wide effort to deprecate SHA1 based TLS certificates. In Exchange Online Protection, support for those certificates will end in mid Feb 2017. If your on premises servers are still using SHA1-based certificates after mid February, a secure TLS connection will not be possible between your servers and EOP. If you use Forced TLS for your connector for messages from EOP, none of those messages will be delivered. For messages from your on premises servers to EOP, no TLS connection means we will be unable to identify those messages as coming from you and will not be able to send them out to the internet. For any partner connectors with Forced TLS enabled, mail flow will stop to those partners if they also have a SHA1-based certificate.Please ensure that any SHA1-based TLS certificates are renewed to avoid any disruptions to mail flow

Accessibility Updates - Skype for Business 2016 WIndows client

Description:
These new client visuals are part of a large amount of work (both visual and internal) Microsoft has done to make Skype for Business 2016 more accessible so that it can be enjoyed by more people around the world.  One example of this effort is the slight variation in color changes which provides greater text-to-background contrast to empower those with low vision to more easily distinguish parts of the interface.  We also improved screen reader support, simplified keyboard navigation and made the keyboard focus easier to see in many places.  For more information on the overall goal of Microsoft to enable all users go to: https://www.microsoft.com/enable/

We’re pleased to announce that we’re ahead of schedule with our inaugural Feature Pack for SharePoint Server 2016. Feature Pack 1, available in November, brings several enhancements driven by recent innovation in Office 365 and feedback from you on UserVoice, including:Logging of administrative actions performed in Central      Administration and with Windows PowerShell.Enhancements to MinRole to support small environments.A new OneDrive for Business user experience.Custom tiles in the SharePoint app launcher.Unified auditing across site collections on-premises      and in Office 365.Unified taxonomy across on-premises and Office 365.OneDrive API 2.0.Unlike previous versions of SharePoint, release-to-manufacture (RTM) did not define the end of innovation, but the beginning. As we continue to develop SharePoint Server 2016, we’ve paid close attention to customer feedback, trends in content management, team collaboration, user experiences across devices, and how the cloud can be blended into existing on-premises scenarios in new and compelling ways. Feature Packs allow us to accelerate delivery of cloud-first features to our Software Assurance customers (where noted) of SharePoint Server 2016 outside of the traditional 2- to 3-year release cadence.SharePoint Server 2016 and the coming FP1 enable hybrid scenarios across on-premises and Office 365 online. You can enable hybrid search, connected experiences with OneDrive for Business, Delve, Yammer and Office 365 Video, and now with FP1 you can perform a unified audit and take advantage of a unified taxonomy. For more information on other SharePoint and Office 365 hybrid scenarios, see hybrid.office.com.There is no cost associated with Feature Pack 1; however, some features of Feature Pack 1 are limited to Software Assurance customers where noted in this post.

Support for Plus Addressing in Office 365

Description:
Plus Addressing is a great way to quickly create custom (or disposable) email addresses based off your standard email address, by simply adding a "+" suffix string to an existing email address in Office 365. For example, a plus address for [email protected] could be something like [email protected] that she could use to sign up for the newsletter at the Northwind web site. Then when Northwind sends a newsletter to [email protected] it will route directly to [email protected] Kim could create an Inbox rule that then moves messages sent to this + address into the "Northwind" folder. Plus addressing support in Office 365 is a great way to more easily manage your Inbox, and even track mail like marketing and sales campaigns.

Reply-All Storm Protection

Description:
When a Reply-All mail storm happens in your organization it can disrupt business continuity and even cause unexpected throttling of your organization's mail flow within Office 365. While Exchange Online has several features designed to help prevent Reply-All storms (e.g. Distribution List (DL) allowed sender lists and recipient limits) that reduce the severity and impact of reply-all storms, they can still happen, especially if the DLs haven't been locked down tightly. Reply-All Storm Protection in Exchange Online will detect when a Reply-All storm is happening (or likely to happen) and will temporarily block users from replying to everyone on the thread. During this "cool down" period the service will send anyone who tries to reply to everyone a bounce message (or NDR) that effectively tells them to not try to reply all to the message. The temporary block will be active for several hours, usually enough time to dampen end-user enthusiasm to reply to the thread, and thus curtail the storm before it gets started or before it gains much momentum.

Securing SMTP Authenticated Submissions - Per Mailbox and By Default

Description:
We're kicking off a multi-phased effort to better secure SMTP authenticated submissions. SMTP authenticated submission is commonly used by applications or devices (printers, scanners, etc.) to submit email into the Office 365 service. It only requires login credentials, and doesn't support modern authentication. So this leaves any account that's using SMTP authenticated submission more vulnerable to abuse and hacking than accounts that exclusively use the other protocols that do support modern authentication. Last year we introduced Remote PowerShell cmdlets to disable SMTP authenticated submission for your entire organization or for individual mailboxes, and recently we released a switch in the Exchange Admin Center (EAC) to toggle it off for individual mailboxes. In Q2 CY 2020 we'll start to disable it for existing Office 365 organizations who aren't using SMTP Authenticated Submission at all, and starting in Q4 CY 2020 we'll start to judiciously disable it for existing organizations in Office 365 who have it enabled for some mailboxes, working closely with them to transition away from this less secure protocol while ensuring the continuity of their critical business email workflows.

Message Recall in Exchange Online

Description:
The Outlook for Windows Message Recall feature is extremely popular with users, yet it doesn't always work so well. Part of the problem is that the recall is client-based, and the recall can only happen if the recipient also uses Outlook. With millions of users with mailboxes in Office 365, we're now able to improve upon that feature by performing the recall directly in the cloud in Office 365 mailboxes, so it doesn't matter which email client the recipient uses, the recall takes place in their Office 365 mailbox, and when their client syncs their mail, the message is gone. While there are still some conditions where the recall still won't happen (like the message being read by the recipient), moving the recall to the cloud significantly improves the recall success rate. Additionally, we'll now also offer an aggregrate message recall status report, to make it simpler to see for whom the recall succeeded and for whom it failed.

Send from proxy addresses (aliases) from OWA

Description:
The ability to send email from a proxy address (aka alias) other than the sender's primary SMTP address is useful in multiple scenarios, such as mergers and acquisitions when you need the to send from multiple branded domain names, or sending on behalf of a team or department, like [email protected] And of course, having the FROM and REPLY TO boxes preserve that alias when the receipient sees it is just as important. So to kick-off our journey to provide you and your users with the flexibiliy to send email using alias, we're excited to announce that soon Outlook on the web (aka OWA) will natively support the ability to choose the sender or FROM from a drop-down list right within the compose pane. And when the recipient receives that message, the FROM and REPLY TO will show that alias, regardless where the recipient's mailbox happens to live.

ARC preserves the email authentication results from all participating intermediaries, or hops, when an email is routed from the originating server to the recipient mailbox. Before ARC, modifications performed by intermediaries in email routing, like forwarding rules or automatic signatures, could cause email authentication results to fail by the time the email reached the recipient mailbox. With ARC, the cryptographic preservation of the authentication results allows Office 365 to verify the authenticity of an email's sender. Initially ARC will only be utilized to verify authentication results within Office 365, but plan to add support for third party signers in the future.
