Microsoft Exchange Service Pack 2 CTP Now Available
Posted on 20-Aug-2005 11:35 | Tags Filed under: News



IT Administrators have now the opportunity to to try a Community Technology Preview version of the next update to the Microsoft messaging platform.

Microsoft warns that the software included in this Exchange Server 2003 SP2 CTP is intended for evaluation and deployment planning purposes only, and not for production use. Exchange Server 2003 SP2 CTP is unsupported pre-release software distributed for feedback and testing purposes only, and is not supported by Customer Services and Support (CSS).

Some of the mobility features contained in this CTP download are not yet available for testing, pending availability of Windows Mobile 5.0 devices. This is mainly related to the Messaging & Security Feature Pack for Windows Mobile, which will be available later in 2005 and 2006.

Some of the security features in SP2 are only available when used with Outlook 2003 SP2 which will not release until later in 2005.

The update brings an updated and integrated Exchange Intelligent Message Filter. Based on the same SmartScreen filtering technology developed by Microsoft Research and now incorporated in Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, MSN Internet Software and Services, and MSN Hotmail, SP2 will incorporate the latest data and updates to the Exchange Intelligent Message Filter.

It also supports the Sender ID e-mail authentication protocol. This new feature further helps prevent unwanted mailbox phishing and spoofing schemes by verifying the IP address of the e-mail sender against the purported owner of the sending domain.

Users will see an increase in mailbox storage size limits to 75 gigabyte (GB) for Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition, a new offline address book format with improved performance, and cache mode enforcement.

IT Professionals who find problems while testing this software update should direct questions to the public usenet newsgroups as per instructions on the download page.
