Slide Presentation: An Inside View of Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP2

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.

Update: 7/9/2012:
