Storing messages sent by delegates [Send On Behalf, Send As]

By default, Exchange Online keeps a copy of all messages sent by delegates from a shared mailbox in the Sent Items folder of the user who sends the message. This is insane because it is usually more efficient to have the messages stored in the shared mailbox.

This Cmdlet manage the right properties

 Set-Mailbox –Identity 'sharedmbx' –MessageCopyForSendAsEnabled $True –MessageCopyForSendOnBehalfEnabled $True  

The MessageCopyForSendAsEnabled property is False by default. If set to True , Exchange Online keeps messages sent by delegates as the shared mailbox in the delegate's mailbox and also creates a copy in the shared mailbox. The same about MessageCopyForSendOnBehalfEnabled property.

Windows Server 2008 R2: Verify WinRM 3.0 service is installed, running, and required firewall ports are open

#Note
 Verify WinRM 3.0 service is installed, running, and required firewall ports are open

#Product affected
Windows Server 2008 R2

#Issue
Management from 2012 Server Manager return the error:
Windows Server 2008 R2: Verify WinRM 3.0 service is installed, running, and required firewall ports are open

#Resolution 
To narrow down this issue, would you check if have you installed both Windows Management Framework 3.x and .NET Framework 4.x in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1? If not, get the appropriate .msu from the following link and install them on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1:

Windows Management Framework 3.0
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34595

Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1 (Offline Installer) for Windows Vista SP2, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008 SP2 Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and Windows Server 2012
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40779

After that,  run winrm qc from PowerShell or cmd prompt and check is it persists.

If the issue persists

Running winrm id to see if WinRM was all installed correctly on each server.
Use netsh advfirewall firewall show rule name="Windows Remote Management (HTTP-In)" to verify that the firewall rules had port 5985 open on our current NLA profile.
Use netstat -a -b to confirm that if there is any local process that was actually bound to port 5985.
Finally, please run winrm enumerate winrm/config/listener to confirm that if WinRM is actually listening on the port.
