Available: Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Since the Beta Release of MS Exchange 2010 in June, there have been over 500,000 downloads from the Technology Adoption Partners Program. Apparently, the beta version must have been successful, because just two months later, Microsoft has announced that the MS Exchange 2010 service pack 1 is available for download at the Microsoft Download Centre.

The original Exchange product shipped in October 2009.

SP1 includes new features and functionality, such as archiving and discovery updates. There are Outlook Web App improvements, and mobile user and management improvements. Also, there are some additional User Interface changes for management tasks.

Outlook Web App will also see some improvements. On the Outlook Web App front, SP1 will offer a faster reading experience, which as a result of enhancements for pre-fetching message content, will make Outlook Web Access work better on smaller netbook screens. Plus, users will be able to share calendars even with anonymous viewers using the Web.

A quick highlight of the new improvement includes:

– New Deployment Functionality
– Client Access Server Role Improvements
– Improvements in Transport Functionality
– Permissions Functionality
– Exchange Store and Mailbox Database Functionality
– Mailbox and Recipients Functionality
– High Availability and Site Resilience Functionality
– Messaging Policy and Compliance Functionality
– Unified Messaging Server Role Improvements
– Audit Logging Improvements
– Support for Coexistence with Exchange Online
– Support for Multi-Tenancy

Each of these topics have additional subtopics that reflect an intensive commitment to bring changes, not just from the requests of customers and users, but also from technology advances that they see occurring indifferent areas of server, operating system, or network and communications support. As the enhancements occur, they filter their way down and become a part of the software fabric.

Exchange is currently supported by the following versions of Operating systems; Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, Windows Server 2008; Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise, Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard, and Windows Vista 64-bit Editions with Service Pack 1.
