    I only finished the install of 2010 the other week - I had hoped the SP would leave me alone for a while :-(

    Yes I noticed the large number of themes, most tbh are more comical / fun / playful than corporate, thus I've removed themes option from mine, fine not on SP1 yet, but keeps them from having silly ones

    Global on / off is the option as its in the settings for OWA in the ECP. You could probably just delete the themes from the server folder though at a rough guess (note - not tried, tested or approved but a suggestion to try on a test setup!)

    I'm loving the SP1 for exchange 2010. The themes are a nice touch, but I doubt our teachers would even notice them. The hotfixes were a nightmare, why don't they make the read more link point to the hotfixes rather than a useless technet article

    About 1/2 hour per server. The SMTP server for me only took 15 mins, the main server took about ~30 mins

    Really, I survived that fine, infact, touches wood (now ive said this i'm doomed ain't I!) I've not had any issues with updates for it..... Although the PST export / import near enough killed me! Blasted Microsoft!!

    Think I will wait till half term before SP1 as I need to get a good full backup of Exchange and the Server, DCs etc before I do that

    I found the following webpages really useful when installing SP1 this afternoon. The first link lists all the prerequisite hotfixes. No need to copy and paste.

    With regards to the hotfixes, If I have Windows updates on and updating straight from MS, should the hotfixes be already applied?
