Comments Off on Exchange Server 2007 SP1 Beta available

Exchange Server 2007 SP1 beta is now available, check out the release notes first.

Lot’s of new stuff coming to Exchange 2007:

  • Personal distribution lists that users can create and manage themselves via Outlook Web Access
  • Ability to edit Server Side rules through Outlook Web Access
  • Deleted item recovery
  • Office 2007 document converter so you can see those docs on the web
  • S/MIME
  • and Public folders

Yes… public folders… yes.. SP1… Yes, 2007… No, I’m not kidding.

So aside from that little bit of shame, Susan Bradley is singlehandedly killing my ability to sell Exchange 2007. I’ve had two partners today decline their new mailboxes on Exchange 2007 and opted to go with 2003. In both scenarios they said:“I don’t want any surprises”
