Exciting news if you’re looking to migrate from Lotus Domino to Exchange 2007: the development group has recently released the first wave of the new “Transporter Suite” for Domino (be sure to check out the release notes).

Can your phone system talk to Exchange 2007?

It’s been online for a little while – I only really noticed recently, but there is a matrix of telecom PBX systems and VoIP gateways which can sit in front of them, in order to enable Exchange 2007 Unified Messaging.

Nice new calendaring features in Exchange 2007

There’s so much new stuff in Exchange 2007, that it’s easy to forget just how useful some of it is… like the calendaring improvements both in the UI of Outlook and OWA, but in some server-side cleverness too. In Exchange 2003 and earlier, when someone sends you a meeting request, it will just sit in…

Using Outlook Search Folders to filter only external mail

Following on from my recent post about search folders, I got a few questions and comments via mail. One, from Christian, asked if it was possible to use a search folder to filter out only mail which came from “outside” – eg Only show me the last day’s mail from external senders, thus filtering out…

Outlook 2007 caches other people’s calendars

In the default modus operandi, Outlook 2007 likes to be in cached mode when running against Exchange, which is generally a *good thing*. Cached mode means there are (by and large) fewer occasions to go back & forth to the server, as it operates by synchronizing a local copy of the mailbox down to the…
