Microsoft bats out first Exchange 2010 service pack

Webby Outlook gets UI tweak for netbooks

The essential guide to IT transformation

Redmond released the first service pack for its Exchange 2010 software yesterday.

The update comes just four months after Microsoft first revealed its plans for the Exchange 2010 SP1 in April.

It dished out a beta of the service pack to its TechEd subscribers in June this year.

Microsoft has slotted updates and bug fixes into its email server software, alongside improved archiving and better message searching.

The vendor has also added feature tweaks to Outlook Web Access and a new user interface for management tasks and better readability on devices with smaller screens, such as netbooks.

Exchange 2010 SP1, which now ships with multi-tenant support, meaning that the firm's Hosted Messaging and Collaboration version 4.5 product is now redundant, comes less than a year after the company launched the product in October 2009.

"Multi-tenant support provides the core feature set of Microsoft Exchange that can be deployed to multiple customers in a single installation and provides ease of management and flexibility of provided features to end-users," said MS.

The service pack can be downloaded here. Head this way for the full release notes. ®
