Microsoft 365 Messaging course

This course covers the key elements of Microsoft 365 messaging management, including message transport and email flow, message security, hygiene and compliance, messaging infrastructure and hybrid messaging. This course is designed for IT professionals who are implementing and managing the messaging infrastructure for Microsoft 365 in their organisation.

Contents

Module 1: Managing the Transport Pipeline In this module, you will learn about the different transport components of Exchange, how the message routing works, and how to configure the message flow for your organization. You will examine the tasks that messaging administrators must complete to configure message transport. You will review the message transport options and learn how to configure domains and connectors and How to implement an approval workflow for messaging. You will also learn how to manage transport rules, which are a very powerful configuration to control the message flow in your organization.

Module 2: Managing and Troubleshooting Mail Flow In this module, you will examine the components of mail flow, and you will learn how to manage your mail flow, which is a crucial task for every Exchange administrator. You will study the differences between managing mail flow in Exchange Online, Exchange Server, and Exchange Hybrid deployments. From managing mail flow, you will transition to troubleshooting mail flow issues such as emails not being routed correctly in or outside your organization, or when secure connections cannot be established successfully. You will learn about the tools Microsoft provides to help you find the root cause of your issues and fix your mail flow. You will then transition from troubleshooting mail flow to troubleshooting transport issues, such as network-based issues, connector and agent issues, and architectural issues, as well as how to troubleshoot in coexistence. Finally, you will learn how to check event, protocol, and tracking logs when all troubleshooting for service availability and message transport has finished and an issue still persists, or if you must find historical data about issues in the past.

Lessons
  • Managing Mail Flow

Module 3: Managing Message Hygiene In this module, you will learn about Microsoft Exchange Online Protection (EOP) features and functionality. You will also learn how to plan messaging routing for this service, which provides antimalware and anti-spam policies that protect your organization against spam and malware and safeguards your organization from messaging-policy violations. You will then review the antimalware and anti-spam protection that Exchange Server and Online Protection provide, and you will learn how to configure SPAM and malware filters, policies, and settings to provide protection for your users. You will conclude the module by examining Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) and how it extends the protection provided by EOP by filtering targeted attacks that could pass through EOP's line of defenses, including advanced threats such as zero-day attacks in email attachments and Office documents and time-of-click protection against malicious URLs. You will learn how Microsoft 365 ATP protects users from advanced threats through features such as safe attachments and safe links, and how it generates reports which provide administrators with insight into attacks targeting their tenants through email.

Lessons

Module 4: Managing Compliance This module begins by describing the different compliance features in the Security & Compliance Center (SCC) that messaging administrators can use to comply with legal and regulatory requirements. This module supports compliance in Exchange by examining the compliance features available in the Exchange Admin Center for Exchange Server and hybrid deployments. Because of the complex retention requirements of modern messaging environments, this module focuses on how archiving is performed with Exchange so that you can provide an efficient and compliant environment to your users. You will also examine how additional archive storage is provided to your users, how messages are automatically processed and archived, and how audit logging in Exchange that provides information about administrator, delegate, and user actions in user mailboxes and your Exchange organization. Finally, because organizations must adhere to legal discovery requirements (related to organizational policy, compliance, or lawsuits), you will examine how eDiscovery for Microsoft Exchange can help you perform discovery searches for relevant content within mailboxes.

Lessons
  • Messaging Compliance in the SCC
  • Messaging Compliance in Exchange
  • Managing Exchange Online Archiving and Auditing
  • Managing Content Search

Module 5: Managing Organisational Settings This module begins with an examination on how to manage authentication for messaging. This module focuses on how to ensure that user accounts are well protected and secure, and how to deploy multiple security features that do not introduce unnecessary complexity in users' everyday work, which can result in lower business productivity and new security risks. You will then transition from messaging authentication to organizational settings, where you will learn how to configure settings that apply to the entire organization or to many users in the organization. Finally, you will examine how to configure organizational sharing.

Lessons
  • Managing Authentication for Messaging
  • Configuring Organizational Settings
  • Configuring Organizational Sharing

Module 6: Managing Mobile Devices In this module, you will begin by examining Mobile Device Management in Microsoft 365, as well as how Exchange ActiveSync and mobile device mailbox policies support this effort. You will then examine how to manage and troubleshoot mobile device access. This module then examines how to configure both access and infrastructure for mobile devices, understanding the implications of mobile device remote wipe, and learning about alternative methods for mobile device management.

Lessons
  • Mobile Device Mailbox Policies
  • Managing Mobile Device Access
  • Lab : Implement ActiveSync
  • Implement Active Sync for single and multiple mailboxes

Module 7: Managing Role-Based Permissions This module examines how messaging administrators manage role-based permissions, which is an essential task for any messaging administrator. Since Exchange Server and Exchange Online both use the Role Based Access Control (RBAC) permission model, this module examines the basics of RBAC management. The module concludes by examining how a messaging administrator must plan and configure permissions carefully so as not to put their environment or their entire Active Directory at risk.

Lessons
  • Managing Admin Roles
  • Managing User Roles
  • Exchange Setup - RBAC and AD Split Permission
