One of my long-standing gripes with the Message Center in Office 365 has been the lack of email notifications for new messages. It's caused me in the past to miss the early warning of some important changes that weren't announced elsewhere. So I developed a PowerShell script to check the Message Center daily and email me any new messages.

 

As it turns out, email notifications might be coming to the Message Center, but since the feature hasn't shown up yet for any of my tenants, I have finished cleaning up my script and I'm sharing it publicly for anyone else who would find it useful.

 

You can find all the details here:
