Exchange 2010 To Get Third Service Pack

If you want to run Exchange 2010 on Windows Server 2012, you'll need Service Pack 3, which may not arrive until the first half of next year.

I'm sure Windows Server 2012 product managers (all 100 of them, if I were to guess) aren't happy with the wait. That means Windows Server 2012 must be quite a bit different than Windows Server 2008. It also means these product managers are going to have a hard time selling their new server to shops with Exchange, which is nearly every Microsoft shop I know of.

It may be that this service pack will ship around the time Exchange 2013 releases, which some are guessing could be in February (but others expect later).

Are you using a mail system other than Exchange? Tell your tale at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
