    Exchange 2007 SP1

    Just noticed they finally got around to releasing this. Amongst other things it's supposed to rectify the feature-incompleteness of the original RTM. We'll see...

    Traditionally MS admins have learned not to deploy MS products until 'at least SP1' due to instability. MS have simply upped the anti, instead of releasing RC quality as final they now release beta quality as final then push out a service pack early.

    It's close to a year now since RTM.

    then push out a service pack early
    Late compared to NT4 (six SPs in about 3 1/2 years).

    The most interesting new part of Windows 2008 for me is the improved Terminal Services facilities. I can see companies like Ericom and even Citrix to a certain extent having a harder time selling their product once that comes along.

    This is a problem if you are migrating a school to Exchange. It is a no-brainer to install a brand spanking new server and run a 3 year old application on it when a new version has been out for over a year SP1 or not.

    I have done three E2k7 installs and not had a issue with any of them except a migration from RM Sleazymail that went a bit pete, but was promptly resolved.

    That used to mean "easy", do you mean "stupid"?

    Re: Exchange 2007 SP1

    Iv installed SP1 and it still doesn't solve our mail flow problems. I am still getting Authentication failed on all incoming messages through the connector from our 2003 box. Tried all the tools and still just report the same.

    Im sure its something to do with the edge/transport role or something, should really read the manual I guess

    I would not recommend installing 2007 yet, the support just isn't there yet. Wish I had just put in a new 2003 box now.

    We already have 2003 Standard but I need to have more mail stores. I need to go to Enterprise but can't get hold of a 2003 version. We have purchased 2007 Standard which allows 5 mail stores and I suppose I could have bought 2007 Enterprise and downgraded to 2003 Enterprise (If I could get the media and license key).

    We're in a bit of a dilemma because we installed 2003 to test and then realised that it didn't suite our purpose ('cos of the mail stores) so we're now in a position of needing to remove 2003 (and all the AD trappings) and put a new 64 bit server in and use 2007. Does it clean up nicely when installed?

    Re: Exchange 2007 SP1

    Why do you need 5 Mail Stores?

    I have not had any issues with E2K7 other than the lack missing functionality (Now available in SP1)

    Basically the RTM release of E2K7 has no support for direct PST migration. In the end I had to ExMerge the PST's to a E2K3 box and migrate accross.

    The good news is that E2K7 SP1 supports direct PST import..... bye bye my faithfull friend ExMerge!

    Take a look at the article below out for further info.

    I am trying to run them in parallel which is where the problems have occurred in the mail connector between the two. I think a standalone single 2007 box would have no problems.
