We're happy to announce that we've enhanced Exchange Server Deployment Assistant to include support for configuring rich coexistence (also known as “hybrid deployment”) for organizations interested in maintaining some users on-premises with Exchange 2010 and some users hosted in the cloud by Microsoft Office 365 for enterprises. This scenario is in addition to the existing support for configuring rich coexistence between on-premises Exchange 2003 and Exchange 2007 organizations and Office 365.

The new coexistence information for the Exchange 2010 environment is only available in English at this time and requires that your existing Exchange 2010 servers are updated to Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1).
