Yes Virginia, there is an Exchange Server 2010 SP1


While we appreciate all the positive feedback we’ve received on Exchange Server 2010, we know you all are eager to find out what’s been going on in Redmond since November. Today, we are happy to give you a first look at what’s coming later this year in Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

SP1 will include fixes and tweaks in areas you’ve helped us identify, including a roll-up of the roll-ups we’ve released to date. I also wanted to flag some of the feature enhancements we’re excited to bring to you with SP1 including: archiving and discovery enhancements, Outlook Web App (OWA) improvements, mobile user and management improvements, and some highly sought after additional UI for management tasks. This is not an all-inclusive list, so stay tuned for the detailed list coming soon!

In addition to sharing these details with you, I’m pleased to let you know that we’ll be offering a beta of SP1 for download in parallel with TechEd North America this June. This will give you a chance to test drive SP1 and prepare for its official release.

Archiving and Discovery Enhancements

With the release of Exchange Server 2010 last November, we introduced integrated archiving capabilities aimed at helping you preserve and discover e-mail data. In SP1, we’ve enhanced this archiving functionality based on the great feedback you’ve given us since our launch. This includes adding the flexibility to provision a user’s Personal Archive to a different mailbox database from their primary mailbox. This means your organization can now more easily implement separate storage strategies (or tiered storage) for less frequently accessed e-mail. And, we didn’t just stop there! We’ve also added new server side capabilities so you can import historical e-mail data from .PST files, directly into Exchange, as well as IT pro controls to enable delegate access to a user’s Personal Archive.

To help streamline the implementation of retention policies, SP1 updates the Exchange Management Console with new tools to create Retention Policy Tags, so you can automate the deletion and archiving of e-mail and other Exchange items. New optional Retention Policy Tags give you even more flexibility in defining your organizations retention management strategy.

Lastly, we’ve made several improvements to the Multi-Mailbox Search features, which can be used to conduct e-Discovery of e-mail for legal, regulatory or other reasons. A new search preview helps with, for example, early case assessment by providing you an estimate on the number of items in the result set-with keyword statistics-before e-mail located in the search are copied to the designated discovery mailbox. And, you now have a new search result de-duplication option, that when checked, only copies one instance of a message to the discovery mailbox. This can help you reduce the amount of e-mail you need to review following the search. Finally, added support for annotation of reviewed items means you can make your e-Discovery workflow even more efficient and less time consuming or costly.

For those of you that have been holding your breath for this one, we’re also happy to let you know that in SP1 timeframe, there will be an update which will enable us to support access to a user’s Personal Archive with Outlook 2007.

Watch the embedded video to hear from the Exchange team’s Ann Vu and Ian Hameroff talk about the investments we’ve made around archiving in Exchange 2010.

Learn more about our approach to archiving by reading the Archiving with Exchange 2010 whitepaper.

Outlook Web App – Better Than Ever

We didn’t stop working with archiving and discovery, OWA gets a significant facelift with SP1 as well. With new work to pre-fetch message content, the OWA reading experience becomes faster. With delete, mark as read, and categorize operations running asynchronously, these actions feel instantaneous to the user. We’ve also made sure that certain long running operations, such as attaching a very large file, will not block the rest of the OWA experience, protecting the user from irritating web UI hang-ups. You’ll see a number of other UI improvements as well to de-clutter a bit; helping make it easier to find common tasks with updated action icons and menus. The simpler UI will make OWA much friendlier to the smaller screens of ever popular Netbooks. Users will also be able to share their calendars to anonymous viewers via the web, assuming you enable this functionality as the admin.

In RTM, we delivered Information Rights Management (IRM) capabilities in OWA, allowing you to read and compose IRM-protected messages just like you’ve been able to do with Outlook in the past. In SP1, you’ll be able to add Web-Ready Document Viewing of IRM-protected documents as well and you’ll be able to do so in Safari on a Mac as well as in Firefox or IE on a PC.

Finally, for those of you who have been dying to change the look and feel of OWA, we’re bringing OWA themes back; adding several OWA themes so you can match the OWA experience to your particular style. Oh yeah, and yes, the reading pane can be placed on the bottom or the right side.

All The Mobility, All the Time

While Exchange Active Sync (EAS) has become the de facto standard for mobile communication, there is no resting on any laurels in Redmond here either. In SP1, mobile users will be treated with tether-free IRM support in EAS, enabling you to send and receive IRM-protected mail without having previously connected your device to Windows Mobile Device Center to provision IRM. Updated EAS capabilities also enable support for send-as, support for notifying the user if their device has been placed on block or quarantine by their admin, full implementation of conversation view including the ability to sync only unique parts of messages. Also, for those users who need help setting up their mobile device to access mail via POP/IMAP/SMTP, we’ve added information in OWA to provide them the server names for these services. For those of you who haven’t already seen Michael Higashi’s blog post from March, take a look to read about all the updated Outlook Mobile capabilities already delivered.

New Management UI

We know you all love PowerShell, as do we, but SP1 will bring several new management UI enhancements to enable a number of management tasks in the Exchange Management Console (EMC) and Exchange Control Panel (ECP). Here’s a taste:

  • Create/configure Retention Tags + Retention Policies in EMC
  • Configure Transport Rules in ECP
  • Configure Journal Rules in ECP
  • Configure MailTips in ECP
  • Provision and configure the Personal Archive in ECP
  • Configure Litigation Hold in ECP & EMC
  • Configure Allow/Block/Quarantine mobile device policies in ECP
  • RBAC role management in ECP
  • Configure Database Availability Group (DAG) IP Addresses and Alternate Witness Server in EMC
  • Recursive public folder settings management (including permissions) in EMC

Many of the improvements we are delivering in the SP1 are in direct response to the feedback you’ve provided since RTM. I am excited about how, in a very short period time, we’ve been able to quickly respond and introduce these improvements and innovation to Exchange 2010. A full list of what’s coming in SP1 will be on TechNet soon.

As always, let us know what you think!

    Finally.  These are the changes we have been looking for.  Anyway we can look for an update to Exchange 2007 for the time being for public folder permissions in the EMC?  Been using PFDAVAdmin since it’s quicker for me.  Looks like I won’t have a need for the new ExFolders much once you get public folder permissions in the EMC.

    Archive mailbox changes are nice as well…now that as SATA disks written all over it for our archive mailboxes.

    SP1 is what Exchange 2010 should have been out of the box from the sounds of it.  Must like Windows 7 is what Windows Vista should have been.

    Am I starting to get the impression that Microsoft is listening to us customers more and more the year or two?!

  2. David says:

    "SP1 is what Exchange 2010 should have been out of the box from the sounds of it.  Must like Windows 7 is what Windows Vista should have been."

    QFT, but at least it’s getting there!

  3. Fergus Strachan says:

    Yes, I third that. It’s nice of you to bring back those nice features we miss. :-)

    Seriously though, that’s much of what I hoped for, so thanks.

  4. Brian Kronberg says:

    Thank you so much for finally making this information public!  It has been really hard designing solutions for customers that want archives but have not been able to offer more information about what will be supported in June.

    Specifically, I will have a lot of very happy customers that archive mailboxes will be accessible from Outlook 2007.

  5. Mantvydas says:

    I don’t know if it is there, but is it possible to set a standard e-mail signature for everybody using a standard Management UI?

  6. Mr. T says:

    My customer will be doing backflips for being able to provision Personal Archives to a different mailbox database and being able to access them from Outlook 2007!

    The next of drinks are on me!

  7. Bharat Suneja [MSFT] says:

    @Mantvydas: It’s included – using transport rules (disclaimer action). You can create personalized signatures by using/inserting AD attributes in disclaimer text.

    Understanding Disclaimers

  8. Holeshot says:

    I second Mr.t’s comments.  I can’t wait!

  9. Jeremy Wood says:

    The archiving improvements are great!  Maybe I can finally kick Enterprise Vault to the curb!

  10. Taylor Higley says:

    This addresses at least 80% of the issues we’ve experienced so far in our Exchange 2010 deployment.  We went live the day the product RTM’d and have reaped the benefits so far.  Cannot wait for this update to be RTM’d!

  11. Would it be too much to ask for one more EMC feature:

    — Ability to add user to Group from User Properties > Member Of tab.

    Why this hasn’t been done already seems like a huge oversight.

  12. Gordon says:

    Anything new with S/MIME?  Can it please be made to work with the other browsers supporting the full OWA experience?  Supporting Firefox on Linux would be ideal.  This impacts many Government customers.

  13. Ralph Romanelli says:

    I am really liking the improvements.  Does Exchange 2010 support legal holds for public folders?

  14. Mahmoud magdy says:

    that is more that what I have expected, one request are there any news about address list segregation

  15. rdmtech says:

    When are we going to see ‘time of day’ transport rules?  I was hoping SP1 would finally bring them :(

    I guess I’ll be waiting for SP2 or god forbid Exchange 2012!

  16. Paul Lemonidis says:

    I second about adding and removing users from groups on the member of tab in the EMC for a mailbox user.

  17. Bharat Suneja [MSFT] says:

    @Ralph Romanelli: No, Litigation Hold (formerly Legal Hold) is only supported for mailboxes.

    @rdmtech: ‘Time of day’ transport rules are easy to accomplish – just schedule a script to enable/disable rules as required using Windows Scheduler. :)

  18. Chris Lehr says:

    http://blog.chrislehr.com/2010/04/exchange-2010-sp1-announced.htm

    Congrats..  I am hoping there are not any store changes that will impact or delay third party vendors from offering backup support.

    How about resetting passwords and creating new mailboxes from the ECP?  

  19. Leonardo says:

    Will SP1 modify the AD Schema? There will add new EMC functionality?

    Regards

  20. Mike says:

    Any chance that the Direct File Access option would be added back into OWA with SP1, users miss that integration to be able to see files on the servers remotely tied into OWA?

  21. Another David says:

    Everything sounds great, BUT what is the plan/schedule for releasing rollups for bug fixes.  We have an outstanding issue that Support is saying will be addressed in SP1, which is 5 months? away from release.  

    The new stuff is great, but the stuff that is broken needs to be fixed in a more timely manner.

  22. Mahathir Islam says:

    Waiting for this beta.

  23. Martin Tuescher says:

    Any information available if SP1 brings back UDP notifications for Outlook 2003 clients in Online Mode?

  24. Just J says:

    What’s about setting rights (share folders, contacts, calander) in OWA

  25. Exchange says:

    Another David – Depending on the issue, it may be backportable to RTM and thus deliverable in an RTM rollup.  have your support person initiate an escalation request to Sustained Engineering where it will be triaged and determined if the issue resolution can indeed be backported.

  26. nawar says:

    Great work on SP1, Well done !

    still waiting for:

    *Ability to add user to Group from User Properties > Member Of tab.

    *Readonly Archive

  27. Sharepoint Italia says:

    Anything new on Sharepoint 2010 integration?

  28. Serkan says:

    Great Work on SP1!

    thanks for the Archive mailbox changes . :)

  29. Doug says:

    Can’t wait – finally – theme support back in OWA!

  30. Travis says:

    Indeed, great news. I second the question about address list / public folder segregation. I have been following Dave G’s blog, but no good news as of late.

  31. Karsten says:

    Thanks for sharing this information – I was waiting for the possibility of archiving to differnt databases.

    One Question:

    … provision a user’s Personal Archive to a different mailbox database from their primary mailbox

    Includes this that one can have the "different datebase" on a different server?

    And one completly differnt thing I am missing in the SP: Couldn’t Microsoft include a possibility to see in Outlook who is in a query-based distribution group?

    Thank you.

  32. Jérôme DUMET says:

    Any news about a bug with eseutil /p. (2008 R2)

    I’m experiencing difficulties with this tool. My request reaches the support level 3 in Microsoft…

  33. Vikas Sankla says:

    Nice to here that Exchange server 2010 is going to release service pack 1.

    Facing lot of issue.

    Thanks…

  34. Paul.Bendall says:

    Thank you. Exchange 2010 vanilla was a huge move forward and I could see where MS were going with archiving. I was expecting a different behaviour on the archive element but realistically expected that to be in the next release of Exchange. Having it so soon and as a service pack is just awesome. Great job

  35. Adam Morris says:

    Can’t come quick enough.  BUT please please please bring back UDP notifications for our online Outlook 2003 users – they are going nuts!

    Thanks!

  36. Evgeny says:

    Can we access to archive folders if outlook is not connected to Exchange (in offline)?

  37. JJY says:

    When "later this year"?

  38. tiza says:

    updates to language packs too ? missing voice mail preview for german language as an example

  39. Felix Jacob says:

    It will be nice if microsoft adds "Mailbox size", "last logon time", and "last logged on by" columns to the available add/remove columns options in the Exchange Management console-It was there with the 2003 ESM, and lost it with 2007… now we have to run get-malboxstatistics cmdlet to get this information…

  40. Sean Hook says:

    I thought that the hosting solution was supposed to be part of the first service pack? With the death of HMC we have not been able to move to Exchange 2010.

  41. HotFix says:

    @Gordon – I am not sure which government you work for but speaking as a person working in the civilian federal government, the standard desktop is Windows. I know of no government agencies that have standardized on Linux as the desktop – maybe some techies use it, but joe average user doesn’t.

    New mail notifications for Outlook 2003 would be huge.

  42. Exchange says:

    Hi Sean – we are working diligently on our commitment to the hosting community and will update our partners on the status of this work at the upcoming Hosting Summit.  There have been no changes to the plans we have previously communicated.  This blog is in regards to the capabilities included in Service Pack 1 for on-premises Exchange customers and is in that way distinct from what we will deliver to our hosting partners.

  43. Kobi_S says:

    Great news (especially about the archiving), thanks guys!

  44. David says:

    Hi, will it be possible to retain all sent/recieved e-mail in the e-mail archive and make it read only?  If not does Microsoft have plans to implement something like this?

  45. Steve says:

    Any information available for which features will requre the Enterprise CAL?

  46. mfmanning says:

    Two questions – 1; Is there a schema update required for this? and 2; is there a beta release available?

    Thanks

  47. George says:

    Why multiple mailboxes for archiving?

    Why not the users single mailbox with rules which classify the data contained therein?

    For example:

    Primary Database

    Archive Database

    Users Mailbox

    Archive policy = Any mail older than 2008 put in the archive database.

    In this way from the users perspective it is always their single mailbox from the servers / systems perspective the data is automatically housed in the secondary database/storage structures.

    Simple, clean, efficient and most importantly nothing changes for either the user or the administrator (other than configuration)….

    George

  48. Claus Haulund says:

    Hope Web Part URL formats come back in SP1 to access Outlook Web Access web parts contents directly like Exchange 2003 and 2007 BUT GONE IN EXCHANGE 2010.

    <iframe id="kalender" name="kalender" src="http://webmail/OWA/xxx@dk/?cmd=contents&module=calendar&view=weekly&quot; width=100% height=100%>

  49. George says:

    What about multiple mailboxes from the same organization in OWA?

    What about multiple exchange accounts using EAS from different organizations in OWA?

    That would be very useful

  50. Chucky_au says:

    Will SP1 fix the possible bug with certificate revocation??

    We are trying to implement Exchange 2010 and have hit a brick wall.

    MS support call open too.

    For when the voice mail in Portuguese?

    In November 2009 in Portugal when was officially launched the Windows 7 + Windows 2008 R2 + Exchange 2010, in the demonstration was used in the voice mail in Portuguese!

  52. nemo says:

    Too bad Archiving requires Enterprise CAL. Would allow me to push the company to upgrade right away…

  53. Ian Matthews says:

    THREE REQUESTS:

    1:  I have had nothing but client complaints about the REPLY, REPLY TO ALL and FORWARD "graphic/icon" buttons in OWA 2010.  If you would change back to the 2007 OWA TEXT buttons, it would improve the layout and feel of the product.  

    2: I would LOVE to see the new Office 2010 Web Apps function through Exchange 2010 so that files could be edited and saved back to the network.  Do you know if that is being worked on?

    3: MS Tech’s tell me DOCUMENTS is coming in SP1 and that is a good thing because it is a major feature for 3 of my 5 Exchange customers (and I about to sell another customer on Exchange based solely on that feature).  It is not a heavily used Exchange option in industry because most IT staff are unaware of it.  DOCUMENTS provides a secure back door to file shares during emergencies.  I even have one customer who allows their outside sales staff to source forms ONLY via OWA because they are (obviously) read only and because they don’t have to give these "less trusted staff" VPN access (and IT time!).

  54. Bruno says:

    – +1 for restoring the ability to see files on remote servers via OWA, an amazing feature you got us addicted to in E12!!

    – please, restore read receipt tracking via outlook too tracking icon too! we miss that nice table

  55. Tim Mapes says:

    Please fix the .pst import/export ASAP You can only import/export email if your Exchange Mailbox roll is installed on a domain controller, now does this make sense to you?

  56. exchange hosting says:

    at long last, we get the notes back???

  57. Gideon says:

    Please include the "single line view" again. Why whas it left out in the first place?

  58. Edgar says:

    Please add back Direct File Access option, This is a great feature for small and medium business without budget or intention of implementing Sharepoint.

    import/export using Outlook 2007 will be allowed in SP1 ?

  59. seinhorn says:

    What about the time zone being wrong and emails being time stamped 5 hours ahead ??…I was told this was a bug By Microsoft……

  60. Timothy McCarty says:

    Will searching be transparent across the active and archive mailboxes in all supported clients?  (i.e. – will the user be able to execute one search and find results in both inbox and archive)

  61. Scott says:

    Can the archiving DB be on a sep server than the user mailbox?  Would be nice to be able to split these up and put archiving data on cheaper gear.

  62. Ernie says:

    Shared folders Direct File Access from Web App as Exchange Server 2007 does from OWA please!!!. It s a must!!!

    Thank you.

  63. Alex says:

    As usual a below than average product is delivered and then you get all us waiting for a necessary SP while we try to survive with the current version that we paid a lot of money. And we do not all love the powershell…and it dependence from IIS…

    I am sure Exchange 2010 will be a nice product.. in 2 or 3 years from launch…

  64. Dennis says:

    Anyone know if it will address the Time Zone issue in the READ RECEIPT?….It currently shows UTS rather than EST for us.

    There was a "fix" listed for Ex 2007 – But it was to install UR5 for 2007…..

  65. JS says:

    Is the archive mailbox going to be accessible through OWA? I know that was a concern with RTM.

  66. Exchange says:

    @JS: The archive mailbox is absolutely accessible from OWA in both Exchange Server 2010 RTM and SP1.

    -Michael Atalla

  67. Exchange says:

    @Scott: Yes, an archive mailbox can be on a separate server than the user’s primary mailbox.

  68. WP says:

    Please, please bring back direct file access for OWA.  I’ve got users howling for it to be brought back.

  69. Jorn M. Stoveland says:

    I attended the Hosting Summit in Seattle. I learned that the hosters, like myself, will get an: "Setup /Hosting" !! :) This will enable multiple tenants – good, finally done with HMC.

    But… We have to create a new Forest to take advantage of this. This will be a BIG job for us. Is there any workaround that could be used? The guy speaking of this in the Summit says that the reason they did this was because “to much could go wrong” in an existing Forest…

  70. J Keen says:

    I really do hope the direct file access is back in SP1, my users rely on it so much that i am considering going back to Exchange 2007!

  71. Gordon says:

    Will it be possible to access Archive mail in a cached/offline mode, or will it still be only available online?

  72. Shooter says:

    Please return back the mailbox creation on ECP. It was available on RTM before but Exchange Team remove it on the production version. Eventhough it cannot choose the OU during the mailbox creation it will help a lot. Please Please return it back……

  73. Wayne Cranston (MSFT) says:

    In response to Jorn M. Stoveland’s comment: Right – at this point we are saying that you are required to create a new forest & then migrate. We are working on creating a migration plan that would as painless as possible.

    Based on feedback we received at the hosting summit, we are taking one more look to see if we could allow the same-forest upgrade and have that be a solid experience for everyone. No promises though, because we’ll only support that if we think we can provide a reliable and great story there for hosters and their customers.

  74. Robert says:

    What’s the status on the issue with the Exchange log files not being removed after a successful full backup?  

  75. Exchange says:

    Robert – did you have a support case on this? Or are you able to point us to someplace that has a bit more specifics? I’d like to look into it…

  76. Dennis Aanen says:

    Does anyone know if we can use Web Parts again in Exchange 2010 SP1 OWA? I find it hard to explain that we are unable to display one’s calendar in Sharepoint 2010 because we moved from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.

  77. Gary says:

    Any idea if Exchange Mailbox Auditing will be available with SP1? Its a feature that is currently used with our 2007 SP2 setup and is the reason we cannot currently go to Exchange 2010.

  78. DNS says:

    Fine news, but will the Disclaimer / Transport Rule formatting bug be fixed with SP1?

    When a outgoing messages is in plain-text format and EX2k10 attaches the disclaimer which is formatted in HTML with AD variables, the attached trailer looks something like mentioned in the link below.

    http://www.office-outlook.com/outlook-forum/index.php/m/617908/#msg_617908

    The attached disclaimer doesn’t have any line breaks, too.
    Plz fix / implement multi-part message transport rules for disclaimers.

    Another problem is, that if I answer to an email, the transport-rule appends the disclaimer at the bottom of the whole mail and not after my response message.

    I know that this will be hard to handle, but it would easy up some admin-work, because I could manage all user signatures over this function too, by reading out AD variables.

    So several signatures would fit to CI/CD.
    And I’m talking about environments starting from 10 Users and ending with customers managing 2000+ users. This is a high frequented feature.

  79. Data Deduplication says:

    These kind of post are always inspiring and I prefer to read quality content so I happy to find many good point here in the post, writing is simply great, thank you for the post

  80. Archive says:

    Is there way to forbit users to delete items from archive? Otherwise you have to backup archive database equally like mailbox database.

  81. Exchange says:

    @Archive: You can place mailbox users on litigation hold. Although this still allows users to delete mail from primary and archive mailboxes, it is retained in the Recoverable ItemsPurges folder indefinitely.

    Messages are still indexed and searchable, and will be returned in discovery (Multi-Mailbox Search) searches, but no longer visible to users.

  82. DigiCentre says:

    This is just fab.But where can we get the SP1??

  83. Zahir Hussain Shah says:

    Appreciated, and I must say after addition these additional features to Exchange 2010 Messaging Infrastructure, Exchange Features & Capabilities towards Managing & Maintaing a sound Messaging Infratructure for Enterprises, will become more enhanced & robust!!!

    Zahir

  84. Leonardo says:

    Hi Exchange Team,

    Will SP1 fix the error produced when exporting to pst in the EMS with the command "Export-Mailbox -Identity <Alias> -PstFolderPath <Path to pst folder> (Error occurred in the step: Approving object. An unknown error has occurred., error code: -2147221219)

  85. Joe says:

    Do it has any tentative planning schedule of Exchange 2010 SP1….

  86. Ratish Nair says:

    Could we have a functionality to export PST’s from a Recovery Database with DAG…. !!

    Thanks for all the hardwork !!!

  87. Gary says:

    Will there be an update to OWA 2010 so the the documents button will be visable as it was in OWA 2007. This would allow direct file access to work on Exchange 2010 as it did on 2007. Also please clear up the confusion on the web that indicates DFA has been removed from 2010.

  88. Pete Heilig says:

    Claus Hauland asked this question on April-12 2010.  Dennis Aanen asked this question on May-12 2010.   I am asking it again, on June-04 2010.

    ===> Will OWA "web Part" URL formats be available for Outlook Web App 2010 ???

    The OWA web parts URL is critical to our installation.

    thanks.

  89. KC Hemdanie says:

    A step in the right direction with SP1 Archiving. The ability to lock down the Archive Mailbox for "Read-only" would offer much needed flexibility.

  90. Ameen says:

    I feel sp1 seems to be good, i feel all other archiving products will be out soon..:)

    I feel you have also include compression as well for archiving mailboxes and also should indroduce migration tools for migrating from some other archiving software since most of the customers uses its already.

    For example you should add a feature to migrate the archived mails from Enterprise Vault to exchange, the tool should be like a connector through that we can import it to Exchange Archive. Hope I can see something like that, this is make us to have all mails into Exchange itself.

  91. sukienki says:

    When SP1 will be ready for deployment? We really need new features in our organisation

  92. muzayan says:

    hi exchange team,

    first, I really apreciate that in this sp1, the archive mailbox can really be in a separate database (server), unlike when it still RC.

    But, what action will be taken by system if archive mailbox almost run out of memory (reach the quota)? what default action that will be taken? can we configure the action that will be taken?

    thanks

  93. Bharat Suneja [MSFT] says:

    @muzayan: The behavior when the archive mailbox reaches its quota is documented in

    Understanding Personal Archives
    :

    When an archive mailbox exceeds the specified archive warning quota, an event is logged, and a warning message is sent to the mailbox user. When an archive mailbox exceeds the specified archive quota, messages are no longer moved to the archive, and a warning
    message is sent to the mailbox user.

    The need for WORM storage is a must in the financial industries.  Will there be any hooks into the different storage vendors to store the archive on WORM.

    Also is there the ability to copy all data to the archive once it hits the inbox or sent folders?
