Been looking forward to this
Not a huge amount of new features tho.
Outlook mobile access, if you don't want to use activesync
and GAL separation, allowing you to assign certain address books to certain groups.
GAL Segmentation - what an excellent and hugely overdue feature!!!
where was this when I needed it at the school to keep the kids from seeing all the staff!
Will need to have a play with it on my Lab at home...
heh.. Don't have a problem with kids seeing the staff here, in fact we encourage it... Governors addresses on the other hand :P
FYI, there is an AD schema upgrade with this.

My attemted upgrade passed all the prerequesite checks but failled at install.
Ok I fixed my problem, thanks to this post here Arctic Falcon - › Otherwellknownobjectserror installing Exchange 2010 SP1..
Not entirely sure what it did but it worked and SP2 went on no worries.
ah ok, I read that it required a schema upgrade on a website before the release notes were published. If they don't mention it then I wouldn't worry about it.
I cant seem to find an SP2 integrated ISO on the MS LIcensing site, are they planning on releasing one like they did SP1?
The SP2 installer is the complete installer AFIAK
you are right!
