Exchange 2010 and It's Only 2009!

Exchange 2010 might beat its own name to market. The 64-bit-only messaging server is now released to manufacturing so it can be bundled up and shipped to you, the paying IT customer. That puts Exchange 2010 on course for an early November commercial release.

Exchange 2010 requires Windows Server 2008, but it can also interoperate with Exchange 2003 and 2007, so you don't have to move all your servers all at once.

One new 2010 feature I find interesting is the ditching of .PST backups in favor of an easier archiving and retrieval scheme. I've never been able to really figure out .PSTs. Am I a dunce or are .PSTs more complicated than need be? Use any mail system you like and e-mail your conclusions to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
