Microsoft announced last week a new outlook client for IOS and Android. It’s very slick and really nice. I like the way it handles multiple mail servers (Exchange, O365, Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud and Outlook) and adds support for Dropbox, Box and OneDrive for file storage. Like I say it’s really nice (graphical wise) and I’ve been playing with it on my phone.

In a previous post on Using PowerShell to Get a List of Groups from Active Directory, I showed you how to get a list of groups and export it to a CSV file. Now that we’ve done that, I’ll show you how to use that data to feed another set of commands where you can edit the groups. If you work with Address Book Segregation or new Address Lists in Office 365, you’ll need to do this at some point so that the data populates.

I’ve had a Polycom CX600 sitting on my desk for a few months now. It’s been acting up in that it was unable to connect to the Lync server. I figured it needed an update but wasn’t sure how to update these devices.
