Exchange IMF bi-weekly updates start in December

I talked about the IMF going to bi-weekly upgrades with Exchange 2003 SP2 and here is the update from the man that was brave enough to kick them around at Barcelona's IT Forum this year:

"Microsoft has informed me that those updates will start appearing on Microsoft Update in mid-December. I’m also told that the Exchange team will be writing about this shortly on their blog and that a Webcast on this subject is scheduled on January 17th."

So keep your eyes on the blog. These are just IMF definition updates but the faster you get the definitions the more spam you can kill. If you want it realtime, you know what will defend your Exchange the best. 😉

    So, how’s Google?

    Why would they become available through Windows Update, if you’re running Exchange you better have WSUS on that network.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Amen to that, I don’t know how people run Exchange without ExchangeDefender but if you don’t you really need to check it out. It is far more efficient and accurate than Vlad puts it.

    Thanks for ExchangeDefender praise Charles 🙂

    Not all Exchange servers run inside of a managed environment, I can’t tell you how many sites partners dragged me to rescue Exchange on and its a closet with no backup, no tape, no power, no keyboard.. you get the picture.

    While a good patch management solution for everyone would be great, its another level of management that most folks simply can’t handle.
