    We have an old environment of Exchange 2010 and thus we have nice working backups. When we want to restore it, create a restore database etc.

    Now we want to upgrade to 2016. When we get a restore request of, let's say, our HR department for a mailbox of 1

    You can automate using Powershell to Export to a file and then to import to Office 365, or you can automate using Orchestrator.

    You have to create using this methods or MIM like Adam said.

    I really cant beleive that sharing calenders on an Android device can be a problem in 2017. But it is. Its so 1990'ies.

    The scenario is as follows. Because of the complicated proces using exchange rules to filter unsercure old Android devices (oh and MS could easily fix that provinding sets of filters), organizations are forced to use a "no android" rule. That will effectively mean that people using android platforms and perhaps wanting to aggregate multiple calendars are now forced to use Outlook App** which doesent integrate with other calendars on the device. 


    This means you get your planning spread out on multiple apps. 

    **) The Outlook App has recently detoriated - "forgets calendar data" when offline. 

    In effect the combination of stick-to-Exchange, forced no to Android native apps even on safe devices and off a less-than-good Outlook App cost collaboration/time/tires and spells a classic failed vendor lock in. It has no future. 

    Please fix this. 



    Yesterday I found that now we can connect to Exchange Online through Powershell even with MFA enabled account. This is a preview feature. IMO, this is one of the long awaited feature.

    It could be based on space and resilience, always depends the size of Mailboxes, Distribution, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity. But I agree they are many servers.
