Outlook 2013, Office365 and winmail.dat attachments

by FragglePete on 9th October 2014 at 04:30 PM
We moved over to Office365 and Office 2013 this summer and all has been good so far.

One of our governors complained to me recently that important documents sent from the Head and the Bursar were not coming through but just an attachment entitled 'winmail.dat'. Further investigation lead to the fact that she uses an iPad for reading e-mails.

Further investigation has led to this website: How to stop Office 365 sending those pesky winmail.dat attachments - Dear Geek - it

Office 2013 & KMS Activations

by FragglePete on 30th July 2014 at 09:16 PM
This Summer we're rolling out Office 2013 ready for September. We've been using a KMS server like most schools to activate Windows and Office 2010 - these generally have been without issues.

Haven't blogged for a while, but like too when I get one of those 'I didn't realise that' moments.....

We've got a number of Visually Impaired kids here at the school, who make use of the Magnifer built into Windows 7. I've got them in a seperate security group which switches on an extra folder in the Start Menu giving access to the Ease of Access tools. Always thought it worked well, select magnifier and a docked version of the application runs. However, I was informed today that

VOIP'd up!

by FragglePete on 26th January 2012 at 05:37 PM
Monday was the big day for us this week; we've switched over on Friday afternoon to our new fully IP based system consisting of a Splicecom Maximiser 5100 Call Server supporting 118 phones. So far, so good with it all appearing to be working well and recieved well by all staff.

It has however been a long time in planning; with support from the community on here as a whole I felt it only right to detail my experience over the last few months.

I've been fortunate that

Getting Ready for VOIP continued....

by FragglePete on 17th December 2011 at 01:07 PM
So, I've got all the VLAN in place ready for VOIP, just a few tweaks to be done to servers and stuff but nothing major. I'm still trying to nail down the exact QoS configuration but I've put that ball in the court of the supplier for now . I've got a 10 more Switches with PoE on order in places where we don't have the capacity.

Further discussions with the supplier states that the system needs to be able to Multicast, and with the Softphone feature on the desktops PCs it looks
