    Microsoft have a fault at the moment with Exchange Online RPC/HTTPS Access i.e. Outlook. It appears to be down to Network/DNS which the engineers are investigating at the moment.

    Regards,
    James.

    If it's LLN then it is probably down to the fact that in their DNS they have the autodiscover record to point to their own exchange server and thus any attempt for you to set it to office 365 will not work.

    This is what i've heard i cannot vouch that it is 100% accurate. However, i suppose you've not got very much longer to put up with that, once they become ICT4Leeds or you leave the autodiscover should work a treat

    Nope. Remember Office365 is external to your organisation, so it doesn't know about or is linked to your domain (in its simplest form). You can get more complicated setups using ADFS etc.. but it's not necessary.

    Has anyone found a solution for spell checking in lower versions of Internet Explorer?

    Talk about Microsoft shooting themselves in the foot!

    We've just had to roll out Google Chrome to all machines due to the lack of spell checking in Exchange online with IE8/9

    Would Internet Explorer 10 not work (unless you're on an older version of Windows)?

    You can buy licenses for ieSpell or Speckie for older versions of IE.

    @zag Reply from Speckie

    I contacted speckie yesterday regarding licenses and here what they said

    "A commercial license is required for all educational organisations. With educational licensing, licenses are required for employees of the organisation (staff, teachers etc.), not students. Once licensed, you’re then able to install the product on all machines owned by the organisation, and allow student usage without further cost or issue.

    The full licensing details, including price calculator and how to order, are located here (http://www.versoworks.com/licence/). We provide all registered educational organisations with a discount
    ."

    Update: "Only include staff that use/access computers." So it seems to me its like a EES.

    If you contact them you receive a discount code.

    IE8 is not a supported browser for O365 anyway.

    Unfortunately the problem is many people are still running Windows XP at home. As far as I know its not possible to install IE9 or IE10 on those.

    Google Chrome installs fine however.

    I really don't get Microsoft's strategy sometimes, its like you want us to move to other products hehe

    @zag - Nope, Win XP only supports upto IE8

    1 of my clients still use Win XP and we have had to install Chrome for them because IE8 is so slow doing anything in O365. They was using Firefox for a few months and then that wouldn't show the Send button or the New Email button!

    I see people still running xp as the main problem.
    Ie8 has always been a terrible browser and always will be, sorry James :-)

    However, with support for xp ending soon i think that it's insane to be still running it.

    Companies can't support products forever!
