So after a bit of a break to let me build up a buffer between work and here again (as not every tip I send out round school is relevant to everyone, so some get skipped), regular service can resume.
Picking up from the last proper tip, ICT Tip #59 - Searching Emails (Outlook 2010) - Blogs - EduGeek.net, this week is ICT Tip 060 - Searching Webmail.doc. This is based on the Webmail service of Exchange 2007, so may not be relevant to everyone, but you might get some mileage out of it.
Continued from last time, some more on Out of Office, but as done through Exchange 2007's webmail service: ICT Tip 054 - Using Webmail to set up Out of Office.doc
It's probably accurate for Exchange 2003 and Exchange 2010 as well, bar a few screenshot changes.
You may find this one useful to send out if you run Webmail on Exchange 2007 - when people end up with IE10 at home through Windows Updates, it breaks the display of Webmail unless you force compatibility mode. It's only a single click, but as with the engineer who charges £100 for a single tap of a hammer, it's all in knowing where to click. ICT Tip 052 - Compatibility Mode in IE.doc
OK, so I heard a great quote on twitter a while back:
"In 5 years time, running an exchange server will be like running your own nuclear power plant to heat your home"
This sounds like a sensible statement to me and since we have an aging Exchange 2003 server I thought I would look into being an early adopter of their "Live@EDU" cloud based email system.

Today looked set to be another normal day, camped at my desk with a cup of coffee and tinkering with the homebrew system to set up school reports. As it stands, my heart sank when I fired up SIMS and an update appeared (also interfering with my project monitoring the SIMS server through MMC). At the same time, the webmail system was upgraded by external providers to a new one. We knew it was going to happen but not when. Today just got interesting.
