    I’d really love it if Microsoft remembered people don’t always use Internet Explorer or Windows. Those links to videos are useless on a Mac.

    Oh, wait, I forgot, the Mac also gets the cripplewa-I mean, downlev-er, I meant to say "light" OWA client. Par for the course, really.

  2. Corentin says:

    Well to be honest, if you install the Flip4mac http://www.flip4mac.com/ WMV codecs for QuickTime, the videaos play quite well on a Mac (videos – can’t get the audio though).

    The videos are quite interesting. The ones I relate the most with are the ones about OWA (since we’ll get this on the Mac as well – provided they didn’t decide to use ActiveX or IE-only features ;-) ).

  3. Educational Institute IT Admin says:

    As an Admin of email service (10 Exchange servers so far on Campus) I’m very interested in the Anti-Spam features. I watched the video "Anti Spam Protection With The Edge Transport Server Role" hoping to see a change in the way the system works from Exchange 2003.

    Of course any improvement would be great and I can see that the features with Exchange 2007 are good and step forward. However there is such a black and white view of the world with this feature.

    In the University environment, mine at least, we have a mandate "don’t block any email". Given the many and varied courses taught at a Uni, any and all topics can be covered in an email. As an example Sexology 101 doesn’t want all their course queries and communication blocked. [I hope that sentence passed any filters you have ;)]

    Other Anti-Spam products, that we pay your competitors for, have a huge range of configurable responses to an email considered spam. We choose "Tag as ‘Spam’, assign high SCL, and move to the Junk E-Mail folder". As such all email is received but the user can deal, hopefully, with the simple process of scanning the Junk E-Mail folder and deleting the spam and while still being able to read the false positives.

    The issue is that Anti-Spam features of Exchange 2003 (IMF) and what appears to be the case in Exchange 2007 seem to be "block yes/no". What about tagging? What about allowing the email in but modifying it? What about options except blocking?

    I hope to see some improvements with Exchange 2007 but if the only option is block or let it through then we will still have to pay another company a heap of cash each year to use their prodcut on top of Exchange.

  4. OWA experience for non-IE? says:

    I think I know the answer to this question, but how much of the new OWA funtionality will be provided for non-IE browsers?  We run Exchange in a mixed environment (mostly Windows but lots of Macs and a significant Linux population) and OWA’s dependence on IE creates two classes of users.  What kind of OWA experience should we experience using Firefox?  is it going to use more AJAX?

    I realize that MS’ incentive is to priortitize other MS technologies, but Exchange has grown to be too powerful and important of an orgnaization-wide communications platform to leave non IE users in the past.

    Any additional info here would be very helpful!

  5. Alex Philips says:

    Exchange Management Console needs integrated exmerge functionality.  Need this on individual mailboxes, stores, storage groups, and server.

  6. David Price says:

    I agree on the comment about two classes of OWA clients.  We run a mixed shop with a significant number of Mac’s.  We need to be able to give them the rich OWA client as well.  It is very frustrating since Entourage sucks so much.

    Microsoft, please help us on this one!!!
