Mike,

I'm pleased to say that the .912 build appears to have resolved the issue. Interestingly, if you run the install which will upgrade the app, the errors persist. Fully uninstalling the app and reinstalling seems to have done the trick. 8)

Thanks!

No sign of the fix for me.

I updated my case asking for a download link, and haven't heard anything back yet.

Many thanks for the download link. It nearly works...let me explain. All mail boxes now back up but one mail box (Administrator) doesn't have an O365 licence so I receive the following two lines: -

18/01/2017 08:27:28 :: Mailbox Administrator () doesn't have a valid Microsoft Office 365 license

18/01/2017 08:27:28 :: Processing mailbox Administrator@{domain}.{tld} failed with error: Failed to get folder properties. An internal server error occurred. The operation failed., Mailbox 'Administrator ()' doesn't have a valid license.

This in itself isn't a problem as the important stuff is backed up (hooray!) From a personal point of view however, I like to run my eye down the emails in the morning and see all green and Successful. If I see red or amber (Failed/Warning) it means I have to go digging around to investigate.

Pre upgrade this morning and pre failures from the 01/01/2017 the backup job quite happily skipped Administrator. The job is defined as Backup All as opposed to Backup Selected so I don't have to change jobs every time somebody new starts.

Let me know if you need me to test any further, I shall also copy this to the forum post in case others happen across the same issue.

We also get this error (Object reference not set to an instance of an object) from a couple of the mailboxes. I would also like a download link if there is a hotfix for it. PM please!

Is the solution released yet. We had implemented a work around and would like the patch installed still to prevent this from happening in the future.

FWIW - I would like to see a toggle under options to say something like 'Report license warnings, but still treat the job as a success'.

I have my job set to 'all mailboxes' so switching it to remove two or three unlicensed mailboxes is a pain when I have 150 that are licensed. It would also introduce the problem of ongoing maintenance when adding new users and needing to make sure they are added to the job.
