Installation of Exchange 2016-Learning to Configuring Outlook Web App Mailbox Policies
Over this point, you may use the following command to setup and configure instant messaging on the appropriate Outlook Web App mailbox policy (or policies). For instance, this command, executes on one of your mailbox servers, enables and empowers the instant messaging on the Default policy:
Set-OwaMailboxPolicy -Identity “Default” -InstantMessagingEnabled $True -InstantMessagingType “OCS”
This command will enables instant messaging for all your Outlook Web App mailbox policies:
Get-OwaMailboxPolicy | Set-OwaMailboxPolicy -InstantMessagingEnabled $True -InstantMessagingType “OCS”
After the mailbox policy has been enabled then all users controlled and managed by that policy will have full integration among Skype for Business Server and Outlook Web App, provided that:
- The user has a mailbox on Exchange 2013.
- The user has been enabled for Skype for Business Server 2015.
- The user has a valid SIP proxy address.
Learning to Disable Instant Messaging in Outlook Web App
In case you somehow (after all this work) do not wish to integrate Outlook Web App with Skype for Business Server you may run the following command to disable it again:
Get-OwaVirtualDirectory | Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -InstantMessagingEnabled $False
Now for confirming that it works
Now that we have finished the tutorial, our last final step is to test mail flow, setup and configure Outlook/ ActiveSync. In case you have configured Internal/External DNS and firewall accurately, then everything must be good to go.
Ensure that port 25 is forwarded accurately from your Firewall to your exchange server.
In case using internal CA, ensure that all clients trust your Root CA
