With the recent release to manufacturing of Exchange Server 2010, IT managers are getting a lot of useful features such as built-in archiving capabilites. There is a warning for those looking to migrate, however. For those planning a move, Exchange 2010 requires either Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
In addition to new archiving features -- which will please many IT shops that may have used third-party vendors, or even nothing in the past -- other enhancements include the MailTips feature and a new Exchange Control Panel.
