After a brief break from blogging, I was back in the studio recently recording more videos to answer questions about Exchange design decisions.
Now most of the time I talk to customers about new functionality that we have added to Exchange, and for the last few blog entries I have focused on some of these changes related to storage and archiving.

The video covers a lot, including the online mailbox move feature. I'm interested in any questions or comments these answers generate. Let me know what you think.
