Microsoft upgraded their EOP anti-spoofing capabilities inside Office 365, which is good, but they didn’t tell anyone. The first users knew was when they started to receive messages stamped with “the sender failed our fraud detection checks” – something that is never assuring. This only applies to ATP customers, but it’s not the first time Microsoft has failed to communicate important news.
Exchange Online has two new PowerShell cmdlets to help administrators recover deleted email on behalf of users. You can now search for deleted items and recover found items without having to sign into a user’s mailbox, something that will be popular with both administrators and users alike. The joy of helping users find email they deleted and can’t find themselves…
Even though Teams only turned one this week, the company has begun testing a PWA version of the platform with a small group of users.
Owners of Office 365 Groups can delete groups if they want. Some don’t like this as it means that SharePoint site collections, teams, and plans are removed. The simple membership model used by Office 365 Groups is the cause, and while you cannot stop owners deleting their groups, you can take action to detect and recover deleted groups if necessary.
Microsoft has unveiled the features roadmap for its Teams platform which includes further Cortana integration, Cloud recording and a lot more.
Office 365 now supports external access to Teams for guests with any email address, a development that creates some questions in the minds of those who might want to add guests from non-Office 365 domains.

Because March showers bring the Apocalypse, this edition of Short Takes looks at Microsoft helping Intel to ship firmware updates, Microsoft and Google going after Slack, a new boss for Cortana, and so much more.
Six months after allowing users from other Office 365 domains to access Teams as guest users, Microsoft now supports access from any email address. You can now invite people to join teams from Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Yandex, Outlook.com, or any other email system. The same basic Azure B2B collaboration flow is used to invite guests and redeem the invitations, so it should be a well-worn path for administrators at this stage.
Office 365 keeps on changing, which makes it very hard to keep up with detail. The big stuff gets covered in articles but small changes might be overlooked. In this post, Tony looks at some of the changes that happened in the last week or so that you might have missed, including Teams, Planner, OneDrive, Yammer, and Exchange. And preparation for GDPR…
Microsoft is preparing to offer a free SKU of Teams with the long-term goal of hoping that these users will upgrade to Office 365 to unlock all the features.
GDPR is coming and Office 365 tenants need to be prepared to deal with topics like data spillage and the right to be forgotten. It’s easy to see how to remove someone’s PII from Exchange mailboxes and SharePoint Online, but you might have a bigger challenge dealing with offline data in PSTs and OneDrive-synchronized folders.
