Hi Larry,

For now you should exclude those mailboxes manually by editing the job (disable first).

What type of mailboxes are those?

But I thought you said update one would change them from Error to Warning?

I'm not sure what you mean by type. They are all valid AD accounts, that were in our Exchange before we migrated, but were never assigned O365 licenses.

Also - There is only a manual INCLUDE option, right? So I have to select the mailboxes I want backed up? Then, if a new one is added, it won't be included automatically?

Hi Larry,

If you choose: All mailboxes, then new ones get included automatically but if you use the selection then they won't. We are looking into changing that so that you can select all mailboxes but exclude certain ones (and new ones get added automatically). But that is something we hope to have in our next version

So for those mailboxes that are unlicensed, they are basically mailboxes that are sitting in your O365 account but are disabled?

Well, not disabled so much as never enabled. They were created in O365 when we migrated, but licenses were never assigned, so they've never done anything as far as O365 is concerned.

Any update on when the reporting will change from Error to Warning, for non licensed accounts?

Unfortunately I don't know that at this moment. Hopefully in the next version

Fake disabled job can be used as a temporary workaround to exclude some mailboxes from the All mailboxes job. Just create a new job and add mailboxes you want to exclude into that job, once done All mailboxes job would skip them, because they are already in another one.

I just created a new job, added the accounts without licenses, saved it, then disabled it. I'm leaving now, but hopefully when I get in on Monday I will not have error reports from my 'backup all' job.

Kostya - That worked. I am no longer getting Error emails.

Thanks!
