    OWA 2003 and IE10

    So I guess its common knowledge that IE10 and OWA2003 just don't wont together anymore. Problem is, we have a lot of home users who are upgrading to IE10 on Windows 7 or are getting IE10 with the god-awful Windows 8, so why can't MS simply fix this error? I can't believe for a moment there's any technical reason OWA2003 and IE10 can't work together. And its all very well saying Exchange 2003 is out of date but some of use are like coporate users and can't just find the money to upgrade to Exhchange 2010+ as it requires new hardware as well.

    So I guess the next stage is open source, or cloud. Neither of which is a quick fix to what should be a minor patching job!

    Have you tried compatibility mode? Or chrome?

    You will have to move off Exchange 2003 anyway shortly as support ends in less that 12 months. I assume you wouldn't be running an email system without security patches?

    Yes it works with compatibility mode, and we have planned to move from 2003 but its not a quick and easy task. We have to purchase new hardware as its a migration only task, and plus the re-purchasing of CALs will cost £000s! So MS are forcing our hand towards cloud or open source in the next 12-24 months it seems

    Is exchange fully patched? I would have thought they would do something for this. Its been that long since i have dealt with 2003 i am not sure whats going on anymore. We have just been given the green light to upgrade to 2013 from 2010.

    Works fine for us, compatibility mode. It can take a while for those to show up on the compatibility list. I think they stay broken till they show up on the MS compatibility list which does not seem to take to long now.

    This is the one advantage of Office 365. It's now being upgraded to Exchange 2013 and it's costing schools nothing, other than someone to set it all up and manage accounts accordingly. No servers or CALs to worry about. As you'd expect, the new Office 365 works 100% on IE10, but not on IE8 or IE9, with users experiencing printing problems and a lack of Spell Check.

    Ahh I overlooked that small minor technicality! I think cloud based Office 365 would still be cheaper than an internally hosted Exchange box.

    I'll admit moving from an internal Exchange to Office 365 isn't without its problems... but in the long term the advantages certainly make a lot more sense and would free up cash flow for other company expenses. I would probably suggest you draw up an action plan ASAP if you haven't already.

    Sorry - we're not corporate (just like coporate!) but we are independent so we act like a corporation! I.e We keep stuff as long as possible before renewing it!

    Office 365 is an option, but they're pushing here for a VLE that is google apps based, so that might be the next step.

    It's called sweating the assets! I'd certainly recommend you look at both solutions, but yes, a cloud solution for e-mail does seem the logical way forward.

    My preference was to provide our own cloud (i.e Exchange email, Sharepoint VLE etc) through citrix type of solutions. But when faced with free google and free MS solutions it becomes a no brainer no matter how much the management want to keep things in house!
