Save Sent Items in Shared Mailbox Sent Items folder on Exchange Online

When you send a message from the shared mailbox, the sent message goes into your own Sent Items folder. By default, sent messages are stored in your own mailbox, not the shared mailbox. Previously, the solution was to edit DelegateSentItemsStyle registry value but most of end-users cannot complete this request or even create more problems. Now, there is an update, allowing customers to setup this option very easily.

You should access Office 365 tenant area and select the shared mailbox you wish to edit. Simply enable the following options:




SharePoint Designer shows up blank workflows in text-based view

You have workflows associated with list or libraries, and everything works fine, except the possibility to edit all those conditions and actions in SharePoint Designer 2013?

If you click “edit workflow”, none of the workflow steps show up – instead you see a blank page with “insert a stage by using the stage button on the ribbon”. Yes, the problem is related to SPD client and all you have to do is to install the following update from Microsoft site: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=41491

Problem with Sent Items in Outlook 2013 & 2016 IMAP

For many IMAP server settings, Outlook 2013 & 2016 try to determine the correct folders automatically, but unfortunately without success.


The result is that Outlook will ignore the already existing Sent Items and Deleted Items folder on the server and create some local ones of its own. Usually, you cannot also send or delete messages because your Outlook seems “offline”, but the only problem is that IMAP support in new version is not working as we expect.

All you have to do is to set the “Root folder path” option in your account settings, and Outlook will recognize the correct folders.


  1. File-> Account Settings-> Account Settings
  2. Double click on your IMAP account.
  3. Select “More Options”, then “Advanced”
  4. Option: Root folder path
  5. Usually setting this to “Inbox” will resolve the probem.

Custom RTE styles for SharePoint

List of available CSS style definitions to add custom font-styles or element-styles to the RTEs in SharePoint:


Outlook 2016 compatibility tab

In Microsoft Office 2016 apps DPI scaling system renders all office products looking like blurry messes and you definitely need to disable DPI scaling via the compatibility tab – but the problem is there isn`t compatibility tab anymore in app properties. Instead of that, you have to use Troubleshoot compatibility wizard. Go through the wizard and select the option for ‘The program opens but doesn’t display correctly’. This will turn off the DPI zoom

How to add custom font to SharePoint 2016 RTE?

SharePoint allows users to define new/custom fonts, font-size, text-alignment etc., to be added to the rich text editors. By default, SharePoint search for style definitions with the prefix ‘.ms-rte’  in CSS files.  The easiest way is to create a custom CSS file with the following style definition:

	-ms-name:"My Own Font";
	font-family:"Custom Font Face Name";

Add a reference to this CSS file on the SharePoint pages where ever you need the custom styles/fonts for the RTEs or add those lines in some custom global CSS on project.
