I thought Jeff Mealiffe did a nice job on this Exchange Server presentation that he gave at TechEd: An Inside View of Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP2 was recently posted on Channel 9.
He covers the following:
- OWA mini for mobile browsers
- Hybrid Configuration Wizard – a lot of interest among customers in having a segment of their user population in the cloud.
- Address book Policies (ABPs) – enable you to achieve GAL segmentation. Goes into great detail about how these work.
- Tips for deploying a multi-tenant solution
- OWA cross-site silent redirection – Removing the need for users to have to log in twice. Discusses how to enable it.
- Update Rollup 3
- Recoverable items store 2.0 – Used by compliance and discovery. Storing versions of deleted content.
Last Friday I listened to another good TechEd presentation, from Scott Schnoll – Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP2 Tips & Tricks.
