    Are there any changes to the storage architecture?  Is the compression factor still pretty much the same or are there any opportunities to see some limited Single Instancing?  We're budgeting now to get off our Exchange 2007 environment and looking for guidance there…

    *Offline* access in Outlook Web App (OWA) i think is going to be a great feature, i would like to understand how this works, i have many clients that use OWA. I went through the list but could not find much information.

    I hope the get more functions out of outlook in to exchange.

    So you get the same functions in outlook on a Citrix farm (no OSA) as on your local pc.

    I hope they also bring all the rule functions to the exchange server out of the client.
