Public folder RSS Feed Event sink

I've gone a bit RSS mad of late for today's edition I created an Event sink for public folders so when a new mail or post arrives into that folder it will fire a script that updates a feed with the last 7 days of posts. I guess the cool thing here is you can stick this on all the important public folders in your org and then use one web page to aggregate across all the feeds and present this back to the user as one single web page. Also it lets people subscribe to folders and receive notification of updates etc.

Downloading a shared file from Onedrive for business using Powershell

I thought I'd quickly share this script I came up with to download a file that was shared using One Drive for Business (which is SharePoint under the covers) with Powershell. The following script takes a OneDrive for business URL which would look like https://mydom-my.sharepoint.com/personal/gscales_domain_com/Documents/Email%20attachments/filename.txt This script is pretty simple it uses the SharePoint CSOM (Client side object Model) which it loads in the first line. It uses the URI object to separate the host and relative URL which the CSOM requires and also the SharePointOnlineCredentials object to handle the Office365 SharePoint online authentication. The following script is a function that take the OneDrive URL, Credentials for Office365 and path you want to download the file to and downloads the file. eg to run the script you would use something like ./spdownload.ps1 ' https://mydom-my.sharepoint.com/personal/gscales_domain_com/Documents/Email%20attachments/filena

Export calendar Items to a CSV file using EWS and Powershell

Somebody asked about this last week and while I have a lot of EWS scripts that do access the Calendar I didn't have a simple example that just exported a list of the Calendar events with relevant information to a CSV file so here it is. I've talked on this one before in this howto  but when you query the calendar folder using EWS you need to use a CalendarView which will expand any recurring appointments in a calendar. There are some limits when you use a calendarview in that you can only return a maximum of 2 years of appointments at a time and paging will limit the max number of items to 1000 per call. So if you have a calendar with a very large number of appointments you need to break your query into small date time blocks. In this example script I'm just grabbing the next 7 days of appointments if you want to query a longer period you need to adjust the following lines (keeping in mind what I just mentioned) #Define Date to Query $StartDate = (Get-Date) $EndDate

How to test SMTP using Opportunistic TLS with Powershell and grab the public certificate a SMTP server is using

Most email services these day employ Opportunistic TLS when trying to send Messages which means that wherever possible the Messages will be encrypted rather then the plain text legacy of SMTP.  This method was defined in RFC 3207 "SMTP Service Extension for Secure SMTP over Transport Layer Security" and  there's a quite a good explanation of Opportunistic TLS on Wikipedia  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opportunistic_TLS .  This is used for both Server to Server (eg MTA to MTA) and Client to server (Eg a Message client like Outlook which acts as a MSA) the later being generally Authenticated. Basically it allows you to have a normal plain text SMTP conversation that is then upgraded to TLS using the STARTTLS verb. Not all servers will support this verb so if its not supported then a message is just sent as Plain text. TLS relies on PKI certificates and the administrative issue s that come around certificate management like expired certificates which is why I wrote th
