Binary Tree (News - Alert), a provider of email hosting solutions, revealed that its E2E Complete software, a full-featured software solution for any Exchange-to-Exchange migration scenario, now includes bi-directional synchronization between Active Directory forests.
E2E Complete not only supports cross-forest Exchange migration but also supports migrations to email hosting solution Microsoft (News - Alert) Office 365, as well as intra-organization Exchange upgrades.
Available to all E2E Complete customers, the new AD-to-AD synchronization functionality powers bi-directional synchronization of all mail-enabled AD objects: users, contacts, distribution lists and their members, and rooms and resources. This capability will soon become part of the next version of Binary Tree's CMT for Coexistence software.
Moreover, mail-enabled items can now be synchronized as contacts, as mail-enabled users, or as disabled mail-enabled users; Groups can be synchronized either as groups or as mail-enabled objects.
In a press release, Vadim Gringolts, CTO of Binary Tree, said, “The new AD-to-AD sync functionality will enable directory information to be shared between users in separate organizations during cross-forest Exchange migration projects as well as during email integration initiatives for mergers and acquisitions. Microsoft Outlook users will now enjoy an even more seamless transition between Exchange organizations."
With these recent innovative enhancements, administrators are able to easily exclude groups and members from being synchronized. They are also given options to resolve group and member conflicts by skipping the group completely, renaming it with a configured prefix or suffix, or by merging the contacts of the source into the matched target group.
In related company news, TMCnet reported that Binary Tree has formed a long-term strategic partnership with Mimecast, a supplier of cloud-based email archiving, continuity and security for Microsoft Exchange and Office 365.
Furthermore, a recently completed survey shows that mobile users tend to leverage their various devices to check their email constantly, although this is not usually the case during vacation activities. To read the full report, click here.
