Read Release Notes
- This is a major update that marks the halfway point to v4!
- New Provider: Microsoft Graph—Microsoft Graph supports both Microsoft’s business accounts (O365) as well as consumer accounts such as Hotmail and Outlook.com. This provider supports FEC’s advanced features such as Remote Authentication, in-place searches, inbox rule acquisition, metadata acquisition, etc.
- Gmail History Records—FEC can now acquire and export history records from Gmail / G Suite accounts for investigations.
- Google Calendar permissions are now optional. When unchecked, FEC doesn’t list Google Calendars associated with a Gmail / G Suite mailbox and you can perform an acquisition with only read-only Gmail permissions when needed. This also makes Remote Authenticator scope customization more flexible.
- New token architecture for Exchange—Exchange tokens for EWS and Graph API tokens are now acquired through a new, unified architecture.
- It is now possible to perform metadata-only acquisitions without having to start a regular acquisition.
- Major improvements to how FEC detects and mitigates throttling.
- FEC now reports its progress when acquiring snapshots of large folders.
- Performance improvements to in-place search result previews in Exchange Web Services.
- When you cancel an acquisition in the middle of throttling, it is no longer necessary to wait through FEC’s throttling mitigation countdown. Canceling now instantly bypasses the countdown.
- FEC’s main menu is now disabled during acquisitions to prevent accidental navigation.
- Numerous other GUI and performance improvements.
Important Note: Due to changes in Exchange OAuth token architecture, FEC 3.50 is compatible with Remote Authenticator 1.50 and later. Outstanding EWS tokens from earlier Remote Authenticator versions cannot be imported into FEC 3.50.
