Merry Christmas! Microsoft releases Exchange 2010 SP2 featuring new mini version of OWA, multi-valued custom attributes and more!
As promised, Microsoft released SP2 for Exchange Server 2010 on 2011-12-12, and the SP brings with it a number of features and fixes:
- Incorporates all the changes from Update Rollup 1 through 6 for SP1
- Adds Hybrid Configuration Wizard for ease of managing a deployment between your on site Exchange and your Office 365 Exchange
- Introduces Address Book Policies, which determine the GAL, OAB, room list and address lists that are visible to the mailbox user that is assigned that policy
- New Cross-Site Silent Redirection for Outlook Web App can pass off requests to another server in another Active Directory site, and also permit a single sign-on
- Adds Mini Version of Outlook Web App suited for mobile users (tablets, pads, smart phones, basically anything with a browser)
- Mailbox Replication Service changes permit you to move mailboxes from on-premises to another forest or Outlook.com
- Mailbox Auto-Mapping changes allow you to disable Auto-Mapping to save on resources
- Added five Multi-Valued Custom Attributes which allow you to store additional information for your mail recipient objects
- Litigation Hold prohibits you from disabling or deleting a mailbox that has been placed on “litigation hold”
If you are running an Exchange Server 2010 without the current rollups applied to SP1, updating to SP2 today is a great idea as you can kill multiple birds with one stone!
