After 83 days I need to empty the trash :-)

Technorati tags: Microsoft, Exchange, 2007, Outlook Web Access, OWA No this isn’t a reference to my home life and the fact the refuse is collected today. I’ve been running an experiment. Since my move to Exchange 2007 I’ve had a bigger mailbox, so I tried not emptying my deleted items folder to see how long it would…

Phew: EVO Launch

I’m waiting to see the feedback from the audience, but the general feeling is Tuesdays event was a success. We had two servers “live” on stage and a third in reserve. These had 4 processing cores each, with 8 GB of memory and twin hard drives. The global launch organizers sent us a total of 53 Virtual…

Since Eileen is on her way back from holiday, I’m going to steal her thunder and share what Jeff Raikes just told the whole of Microsoft. I’m very pleased to announce that the Exchange team has completed its development work on Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.  Congratulations to the team on this terrific accomplishment!  Microsoft Exchange Server…

The VHD testdrive programme: get your Exchange 2007 here !

Here’s an innovation. Ever since we acquired Connectix and their Virtual PC product, we’ve relied on sharing Virtual Machines – or more exactly Virtual Hard Disk files (VHDs) for looking at new products especially server ones. Now we’re making VHDs available for download. The official link is www.microsoft.com/vhd – which links here. Right now Windows 2003 R2, Exchange 2007, and…


How much spam ?!?

Here’s a question for you. How much of the mail that comes to Microsoft is spam ? 50% ? Microsoft is a well know company and we publish a lot of our addresses, so its probably a bit worse than you’d expect… 60% ? This morning I was doing an interviewing Tim Hynes about Microsoft Insight for…


DRM: is there a lesson in cricket’s PR disaster ?

I think the world of the people I’m working with at the moment, and of my previous manager too. But it wasn’t always so. Some of the people I worked with in the past showed me the that anything you say in e-mail can be used in evidence against you: I learnt the value of digital rights…
