Exchange 2007 SP1

Tuesday, June 5, 2007
Some of the details for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 were released at a session I attended yesterday. Here are some of the new and improved features:
  • Public Folders are available in OWA. I like the fact that they will display in the same OWA instance, rather than a new window like Exchange 2003 does.
  • Quota notifications in OWA. OWA will no display banner bars if you are approaching your mailbox size limit.
  • Web ready opens Office 2007 documents
  • Creation and manaement of server-side rules
  • S/MIME support
  • Ability to recover deleted items
  • Ability to permanently delete items from the dumpster
  • Confirmation of successful wipe of mobile device
  • Ability to add custom applications to OWA
  • Move-mail cmdlet can export to a Unicode PST file. No more 2GB limit!
  • Powershell syntax improvements
  • ESM adds pubic folder management tools
  • ESM adds cluster configuration tools
  • ESM adds POP/IMAP configuration
  • ESM adds "Send as" permissioning
  • ESM adds Delegate managment
  • ESM adds Folder level permissions
  • ID translation across Exchange orgs
  • SCR (Single Copy Replication)
  • IRM (Information Rights Management) prefetching to boost performance
  • IPV6 support

E2K7 SP1 will require Windows SP2.
