Office 365 mail rules for education

Recently my firm Paradyne has been signing up and deploying K-12 schools in Australia to Office 365 at a rate of knots.

One of the concerns we easily overcome is around monitoring the Exchange Online environment and protecting students from bullying and other negative behaviours.

Previously in Live@Edu (the predecessor to Office 365 for Education) Microsoft supplied some out-of-the-box supervision policies based on Exchange transport rules.

This is no longer the case with Office 365 for Education, however on the UK Education Cloud Blog they provided a guide for how to re-create these supervision policies:

My Exchange Online book hits Amazon

The Office 365 book I co-authored with fellow Office 365 MVP David Greve is now available on Amazon.

In this book we focus on Exchange Online and walk the reader through selecting the right Office 365 subscription, preparing their environment and performing the migration.
We cover both the Small Business (P) and Enterprise (E) plans and include a variety of scenarios such as integration with Small Business Server, migrations and hybrid environments.

Does this put my company Paradyne out of business given that our prime focus is Office 365?
Definitely not. Office 365 migrations only account for approximately 30% of our revenue.
And even though I wrote the book on the subject, my crack team can migrate customers in less time than it would take to read the first chapter!

A labour of love and many weekends, I’m sure that plenty of Office 365 customers around the world will make great use of it and I hope that it helps them have a smooth migration.

(Several people have asked me for autographed copies of the book. If you’d like one get in contact with me via one of the social media networks.)
