Video: TechED 2007 talk; Kristian Andaker on Exchange 2007 SP1 OWA improvements

At TechEd 2007 in Orlando, Florida, I was able to get some more time with Kristian Andaker, Group Program Manager, to record a quick interview around new or updated capabilities for Outlook Web Access (OWA) in Exchange Server 2007 SP1.

    Will SP1 provide any updates to the Transport Rules engine?  I would love to create a rule with a condition of "where number of recipients is greater than x" (I’m aware I can reject mail with too many recipients but I need more flexibility).

  2. Harold Wong says:


    Now that’s a good question.  Unfortunately, Kristian isn’t responsible for Hub Transport (or Transport Rules) so it would have been unfair to ask him that question.  Since I haven’t heard any news on this area, I will have to do some research and find that answer.

    I would like to hear when SP1 would be released if clear or what is the most likely expectation?


  4. Harold Wong says:

    John: The functionality you are asking for is not available in today’s version and is not in SP1.  I don’t know if that is planned in the future, but I will pass your feedback along.

    Fatih: SP1 is schedule to be released by the end of this calendar year.

    As a forced early adopter (we have many mac clients using entourage – if you didnt know already that causes your streaming and EDB files to go crazy which is supposed to be gone in 2007) there are quite a few issues with OWA light.

    – no way to enable read, delivery receipts, nor do they work if set globally from a PC client and then use OWA light

    – no weekly calendar (monthly isnt there on either I know)

    – GAL searching isnt alphabetical with more than one page of results

    – GAL searching for Groups dont yeild all results with more than one page of results

    – no way to see your whole system folder list (that dropdown is a joke and nearly impossible to use if you have many folders)

    – cannot remove folders manually added to folder list

    Will there be added address book search capability in SP1 for OWA? We would like to have refined search with in the address book instead of creating distribution groups.
