SharePoint Saturday Utah

SharePoint Saturday Utah has begun with a great crowd. I presented my session “Unlock your Big Data with Analytics and BI on Office 365” which is a Level 200 class. In my session I discuss how companies have huge amounts of data waiting to be explored. With Azure HDInsights (Microsoft’s Hadoop cluster solution in partnership with Nortonworks) you can realize the value of your data. With Microsoft Excel 2013 and Office 365, you have a complete platform for BI solutions and services. PowerPivot, Power View, Power Query, Power Map and Power BI Sites empowers users analyze and make decisions using structured and unstructured data.
Attendee Takeaways:
1. Learn to setup and configure HDInsights on Microsoft Azure.

Office 365 and Outlook 2010: Handle various email addresses

Thought I would share a piece of useful information regarding the use “other emails” in Exchange online.  Traditionally, an account is created with an email address for handling public and shared email accounts.  In Office 365, you can add “other emails” to an account to save the cost of adding additional accounts.  In order to identify the emails coming in from the difference email addresses, you can use a server rule looking into the internet header information.

Outlook 2010 Email Properies Internet Headers

In my case, the email I am looking for is info@myemail.com.  I created a new blank rule and use the condition “with <specific words> in the message header”.  Then you can create whatever action is deemed proper.

Outlook 2010 Message Header Rule

Done!
