Exchange 2013: Outlook Anywhere Shows Mailbox GUID

This is interesting:


We are in the process of finishing up a bunch of remote mailbox setup on Outlook 2010 for a client with a Greenfield Windows Server 2012 Essentials and on-premises Exchange 2013 Standard setup.

It seems that instead of representing the server name Exchange 2013 likes to drop the mailbox GUID into that spot.

Nothing out of the ordinary is happening mail wise, we just thought it was interesting that we no longer see MailboxServer.Domain.Local as the indicated server name.

Nothing to see here, move along folks! ;)

You may also notice that user pictures loaded into Active Directory no longer show up in Outlook 2013. They work just fine in Outlook 2010 but no longer work in Outlook 2013. MS says it is due to a change in how they interface with the Offline Address Book but provide no solution on how to fix it. Have been seeing the issue on Exchange 2007 and 2010. Not earth shattering but frustrating to the users.
