News about the first email social engineering attack against Office 365 came alongside Microsoft’s announcement that the anti-spam SmartScreen technology is being deprecated. Stay safe people!

Sort of buried in the small type of a blog by the SharePoint Team was a notice that the size of SharePoint Online site collections will increase to 25 TB.

In a post to Office Blogs today, the SharePoint team announced new features for SharePoint Online team sites and Office 365 Groups. The enhancements will begin rolling out to Office 365 First Release customers in early September. If you use Office 365 Groups, be aware that they will all be updated with their own team site when these new enhancements roll out to production.

SQL Server 2016, possibly better than previous releases, offers a clear licensing choice that really comes down to scale.

In a post today to the Office Dev Center by Bill Baer, Microsoft released the new SharePoint Framework Developer Preview (SPFx). I was watching the Twitter feed from SharePoint Fest Seattle, and Jeff Teper (@jeffteper) announced the preview in his keynote.

In a post on Andrew Connell’s blog today, Andrew posted his pledge for the #IStandByYou campaign along with his August 3 interview for the Microsoft Cloud Show with Cathy Dew about Women in Technology. Good post, Andrew! And good show!

If you manage an Office 365 tenant and you have one of 4 specific types of plans, you can use PowerShell in SharePoint Online to raise the storage limit, 5 TB at a time, for users who hit the default 1 TB limit. For the rest of us, we'll stay at the 1 TB limit that Microsoft set.

In a post to Office Blogs on July 25, 2016, the SharePoint team announced modern lists, coming soon for SharePoint Online. They're in preview now, but the preview version does not support customizations. Don't panic. Though the SharePoint Team have not stated it specifically, Wictor has compiled statements from the team inferring that classic SharePoint lists will be supported in classic mode.

There are times when I end up using the same word over and over. I want to find another similar word to keep things readable, but I end up drawing a complete blank. It's at times like that when I really love the Thesaurus feature in Word.

Most of us use Outlook as it installs "out of the box" when it comes to what we see in our Inbox and other folders. But there's a lot more information that can be displayed, and you can find that information in the View > Add Columns option.

I received a question from a customer this week asking if there was a way to sort bookmarks in their web browser. Here's what I found out.

Over time, your Outlook client can pick up a lot of email address contacts that are no longer valid. This can make your Auto-Complete function become more of a hassle than a help. Here's how you can clean that up.

When you're in Outlook and you are looking at an email, you may not know that there's a lot more going on than just an image of the person who sent the email…

The other day, a customer emailed me and asked a question about the attachments in her email. She was seeing the attachments embedded in the body of the email instead of in the Attachments area below the subject line. She wanted to know why that happened, and how she could get it fixed.

If we add something new to a OneNote notebook, it may go unnoticed by others on the team unless they know to go look there. Today I stumbled across an easy way to get a link to a specific OneNote page that you can use to let someone quickly see the material.

If you're like me, you belong to one or more Persistent Chats in Skype where the information requires immediate attention when posted. You have a number of options available for fine-tuning the level (and annoyance) of notifications in your groups, both as a default and for custom settings for a specific group.

A colleague recently showed me a nuance when it comes to using the Do Not Send a Response option when responding to an Outlook Calendar invite. I thought it was a good reminder on making sure everyone knows what happens when you respond in that way.

If you have a long Word document, it can be hard to navigate around to get to important parts (I know… it's all important, right?). With the use of text styling, you can create a Table of Contents (TOC) that will help your readers get to the important material quickly.

While setting up a new presentation, Sandra Mahan asked me if my slides were larger than normal. Since I had simply picked a default template, I told her I thought it was fine and it fit OK on my screen.
After some screen sharing, we found out that there's an option that determine what the screen size ratio will be when setting up a slide presentation.

OneNote is a great tool, and I can hardly function without it now. But there are times when I need to have the OneNote page displayed side-by-side with the other application I have on the screen, and I don't want to keep switching back and forth between screens. I can do that by automatically docking my page to the side of my desktop.
