#Exchange #PowerShell cmdlet for server-side holiday insertion updated

We're happy to announce we've updated the trial version of our Microsoft Exchange cmdlet for inserting holidays server-side.  This works on Exchange 2010 and Office 365.

You can read about it and get a download link by going here and filling out a form (we want to keep track of who is using it).

You can read the documentation here (and this includes how to insert class schedules using the tool as well as how to use the web-based version we've done).

We have had tens of thousands of people using this version since last year, but only a handful actually made any donations to the project.  So we're setting up a payment mechanism for the non-trial version.  When that's ready we'll let you know.

Oracle Calendar / Zimbra to Microsoft Exchange faster/simpler trial.

We've been getting lots of requests for the simplified method of going into Exchange from Oracle Calendar System and Zimbra.  So you can just download the trial here.

This version is quicker and simpler than our full method, and it will work for you IF:

  • You are not changing your base SMTP addresses for users in your migration
  • You do not want your recurrence patterns re-created
  • You have no need of re-mapping email addresses of a subset of your users 
  • Your users can deal with responding to their invitations again
If you really want the full-state, map-able, recurrence pattern recreating version you'll still need to do a trial.
