Hi,

 

there should be an option for foldersync, to sync hidden mailboxes structure too.

Alexander,

 

Do you mean that we should sync hidden mailboxes or hidden folders within users' mailboxes?  Are there specific folders you have in mind?

Hi,

 

we have a lot of mailboxes, that are hidden in the global adress list. Most of them are connected mailboxes for some people. And for this mailboxes the folder sync should also read the structure. Not folders into an mailbox. Perhaps the same problem for stubbing job.

Alexander,

 

There are two problems.  The first is that the Archiver enumerates mailboxes using the Global Address List.  The second is that, even if we knew about the hidden mailboxes, there's no way to log into them directly.

 

Are these secondary mailboxes (i.e. mailboxes that appear under "additional mailboxes" in their Outlook profile) that users have access to?  The only way for us to find them would be to run autodiscover for each user in the Global Address List, which is possible but is a considerable change.

 

Also, are any of these mailboxes shared between multiple users?

Hi,

 

there are many shared mailboxes. Is there no other way to find all mailboxes, beside the GAL ? Like get-mailbox in Powershell ?

 

Normal User Mailboxes (primary accounts) are never hidden, only secondary shares mailboxes.

 

Or do we need an script to list all hidden mailboxes, unhide, foldersync and hide again ?

Yes, if you unhid all of these mailboxes from the GAL, you could process them, but I'm not sure if the mailboxes would be accessible to users.  

 

I'll open a feature request for processing secondary mailboxes.  Thank you for the suggestion.

Is it an idea to use an LDAP Request and not the GAL ?

Hi.

 

We need to archiv our hidden mailboxes too. We have over 170 of them. 

 

What happens with this?

Alexander,

 

You will have to unhide them to import them.
