Damn it, ISA/TMG (Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server / Forefront Threat Management Gateway) was one of the (few?) Microsoft products I actually liked, it is sad Microsoft has decided to kill it.

Exchange 2010 SP1

Friday, August 27th, 2010

Hi all,

I’ve waited for Exchange 2010 SP1 for a long time and I must say I like:

– The ability to create mailbox archives on a different server/database (the ability to host the archives online is interesting too).

– The ability to reset corrupted virtual directories (yes, I’m a lazy person).

– Scripting Agent (I know I could do some of it with a daily script running on new mailboxes but still).

– New-MailboxRepairRequest.

– Distribution group naming policies.

– More GUI options for managing DAGs.

– The ability to install the required Windows roles/features.

– The ability to set Public Folder permission from the Exchange Management Console (welcome back!).

– Import/export .pst files without outlook.

– Soft-deleted mailboxes.

– SMS Sync looks a nice feature, I hope other mobile clients will support it too.

– Calendar publishing looks like a nice feature too.

P.S. in case it wasn’t obvious – I didn’t intend to list all the changes, just the ones I like! for the full list, check out http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff459257.aspx
