Microsoft To Launch Exchange Server 2010 SP1 Within Weeks

Microsoft, the Redmond based software company, announced that the company has decided on a June release for the beta version of its Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1, which will include an enhanced user interface and better archiving options.

According to a blog post made on the company's official Exchange Team blog by team member Michael Atalla, the Exchange Server SP 1 will allow IT managers to have a more detailed hold on the email storage settings.

Microsoft, which is on the verge of launching its Pink social networking smartphone, has been facing intense competition from its rivals in enterprise communication software, including Mozilla and Google, which has even rolled out a Gmail syncing tool for MS Outlook.

Explaining some of the key functions that come with SP1 of Exchange Server 2010, Michael Atalla wrote on the blog that “We're excited to bring to you with SP1, including archiving and discovery enhancements, [OWA] Outlook Web App ... improvements, mobile user and management improvements.”

The company reported that the beta version of Exchange Server 2010 SP1 will come with enhanced archiving options which will allow users to sync their Personal Archive with a separate different mailbox database from their primary mailbox.
