Old Skool Exchange Tabs
July 1, 2013 8:05 AM   Subscribe

When Microsoft updated Exchange a couple of years ago, they got rid of all the tabs that used to appear in a user's profile in Active Directory and foisted the Exchange Management Console on everyone, which is missing several useful features from the tabs. Apparently, it's possible to restore the tabs and their functionality to the MMC, but I can't seem to figure out how to do that. Does anybody know how to get them back?

From within ADUC, View>Advanced Features.

Hopefully someone will come along with a better answer, but, at least for 2007 and 2010, I don't think you can restore the mailbox management features to ADUC. I haven't looked at 2013, so I don't know if it's still the case there.

There may be 3rd party tools that cover both, but I haven't investigated.

What kind of useful features were you looking for on the tabs? IanMoor is right, starting with Exch2007 the Exchange related stuff was divorced from the ADUC stuff. There isn't a way to get that back in ADUC. Programs like Hyena - which was invaluable in the Exch2003 days - were greatly diminished as a result of this change.
