Today I was confronted with a new issue by a customer.
He wants that expired passwords can be changed from OWA.

To do this, you need to add a registry value to each CAS server

  • Run regedit.exe
  • Open the Key
    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchange OWA
  • Right click the MSExchange OWA key and click New > DWord (32-bit)
  • The DWORD value name is ChangeExpiredPasswordEnabled and set the value to 1
  • Do a IISRESET on the CAS servers

More detailed in this EHLO Blog article.




Every day a new challenge.

A customer requested to set the default message type in OWA to Arial.
Like almost ever you can do this easy with PowerShell:

Get-Mailbox -RecipientType ‘UserMailbox’ | Get-MailboxMessageConfiguration  | Set-MailboxMessageConfiguration -DefaultFontName Arial

You can also do this for various parameters. Take a look at TechNet for a full list of parameters.
