<edit 11/12/09 10:48pm: Added some additional information, links, etc.>
On November 9th, many of our web properties were updated with new
content and information to coincide with the general availability of Exchange
2010. With all the new information out there, where do you start? What should
you be sure not to miss? Below is quick list of items and sites you should
definitely check out.
If you’re lucky, you had the opportunity to attend one of the two events this
week that included an Exchange 2010 keynote: TechEd EMEA in Berlin or Exchange
Connections in Las Vegas. However, anyone can attend the Virtual Launch Event
online and watch Stephen
Elop on stage with Julia White, who demos the new features of Exchange. Or
you can check out Rajesh Jha on
stage at Exchange Connections, with guest appearances from many members of the
Exchange team in Redmond. And if you are looking for more informal interviews
that capture the excitement of launch– then head over to TechNet
Edge where you will find videos created by members of the Exchange team and
our amazing evangelists.
After watching one of the keynotes out on our Virtual Event site, take a minute to
explore and discover all the other videos and resources the Exchange team has
developed. We have a 12 session track dedicated to Exchange and Unified
Communications, and also a virtual booth – where
you can find Exchange demos, customer case study videos, and resources such as
the searchable Exchange 2010 Customer Case Study.
The Exchange TechCenter experienced a complete design and content refresh.
Our Exchange TechCenter maintains its charter or providing resources for our IT
Pro customers to download and get started with the product and is a front end to
Help, community and support content. IT PROs and Exchange admins can easily
discover all the resources needed to be successful with Exchange Server. Check it out:
For the 2010 launch, the new center features easy access to the Exchange 2010
bits, a dedicated TechNet forum for Exchange 2010, key downloads like the
Exchange 2010 Deployment Assistant that we mentioned in a recent blog
post, Exchange MVPs, Exchange 2010 videos and webcasts, community launch
events, and more.
Looking for customer case studies? Product news and reviews? Or perhaps
information on licensing and pricing? The Microsoft site contains all this
information, along with the ability to live chat with a Microsoft representative
about the product.

Exchange Team blog.
