We've published a post on the Exchange Team Blog that provides the first public details about Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1). SP1 will of course include fixes and enhancements in the areas customers have helped us identify (including code from all of the Exchange 2010 post RTM update rollups we've released to date). But SP1 will also include some new features and functionality changes, as well. For example, we've made several improvements to the Multi-Mailbox Search features:
We've also made improvements to the Exchange Management Console (EMC) and the Exchange Control Panel (ECP). For example, one of my favorite changes is in there - new GUI property fields for database availability group (DAG) IP addresses and alternate witness server and alternate witness directory settings:
There are other cool GUI enhancements, too:
Finally, there are two big changes with respect to the archive mailbox. Both are such huge changes, that I don't want to spoil the surprise. So, head over to the Exchange team blog, and check out the post Yes Virginia, there is an Exchange Server 2010 SP1.
