Mailbox Migration and Administering Exchange Online in Microsoft Office 365


We covered a lot of information in this chapter. We started by looking at the different mailbox migration options, including a strategy to migrate .pst content with PST Capture. We also covered the administration of Exchange and its different workloads, such as Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE), Exchange Online Protection (EOP), and Data Loss Prevention (DLP). Finally, we covered the compliance capabilities of Exchange Online in the form of In-Place Holds, multi-mailbox search, and Messaging Records Management (MRM).

What we covered in the last three chapters is very specific to Exchange in the cloud. We focused on Exchange hybrid models and mailbox migrations. We hope these chapters have provided you with a strong foundation to understand Exchange Online and how it integrates with your on-premises messaging solution.

Because it is not possible for this book to be exhaustive on all aspects of Exchange administration, bear in mind that Exchange Online 2010 is equivalent to Exchange on-premises 2010, and Exchange Online 2013 is equivalent to Exchange on-premises 2013. Therefore, if you need to dive deeper into the topic of administering Exchange, there are many good books already in the market that focus solely on Exchange administration and all its workloads, and these should meet your needs.

In the next chapter, we will look at SharePoint Online, which is another service provided under Office 365.
