    Downloaded yesterday and I am excited. I am installing it on a Windows Server 2008 Enterprise virtual machine which is hosted on Citrix XenServer 5.0 (HP DL350G5).

    By the way I am not overly impressed by Exchange 2007. The ideal to limit the GUI interface functionality and switch everything to powershell was dumb. As a IT manager this adds too much overhead into completing tasks. They have over-complicated Exchange 2007 and Windows 2008. I have managed Linux email systems before, now it seems I am moving back to that era of scripting everything. I hope Exchange 2010 offers something better!!

    The Exchange team was short on time and wasn't able to implement a lot of the functionality into the GUI. That was dramatically improved with SP1. It seems like anything that's still not in the GUI is more specialized, and in all honesty, really isn't that complicated to carry out.

    No software is perfect. How about learning the product before you trash it? That would take care of most of the $200 per support incident you're paying, too.

    Say what you want about the GUI, but you can do almost everything in the GUI with E2K7. You can do virtually nothing via command line in previous versions of Exchange.

    Sorry, but when mailbox reports goes from this:


    Set listExchange_Mailboxs = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonat e}!\\COMPUTERNAME\ROOT\MicrosoftExchangeV2").Insta ncesOf("Exchange_Mailbox")

    For Each objExchange_Mailbox in listExchange_Mailboxs

    WScript.echo "AssocContentCount =” + objExchange_Mailbox.AssocContentCount

    WScript.echo " DateDiscoveredAbsentInDS =” + objExchange_Mailbox.DateDiscoveredAbsentInDS

    WScript.echo " DeletedMessageSizeExtended =” + objExchange_Mailbox. DeletedMessageSizeExtended

    WScript.echo " LastLoggedOnUserAccount =” + objExchange_Mailbox. LastLoggedOnUserAccount

    WScript.echo " LastLogoffTime =” + objExchange_Mailbox. LastLogoffTime

    WScript.echo " LastLogonTime =” + objExchange_Mailbox. LastLogonTime

    WScript.echo " LegacyDN =” + objExchange_Mailbox. LegacyDN

    WScript.echo " MailboxDisplayName =” + objExchange_Mailbox. MailboxDisplayName

    WScript.echo " MailboxGUID =” + objExchange_Mailbox. MailboxGUID

    WScript.echo " ServerName =” + objExchange_Mailbox. ServerName

    WScript.echo " Size =” + objExchange_Mailbox. Size

    WScript.echo " StorageGroupName =” + objExchange_Mailbox. StorageGroupName

    WScript.echo " StorageLimitInfo =” + objExchange_Mailbox. StorageLimitInfo

    WScript.echo " StoreName =” + objExchange_Mailbox. StoreName

    WScript.echo " TotalItems =” + objExchange_Mailbox. TotalItems

    Next

    To this:

    get-mailboxstatistics –server $servername

    You got a good product. When the command line is as good as PowerShell is, I'll take E2K7 in a heartbeat.

    Here I am working on a custom IIFP GALSync Free/Busy solution for sharing between two organizations, wishing there were an easier way to do this, and here comes Exchange 2010 with Federated Sharing.

    I don't know if I like using Windows Live as a broker between the organizations, but my clients will probably like it more than paying for ILM licenses.

    Downloaded the beta and have 1 tb drives on order for my VMware test box. Hopefully, I will be able to get it to run on ESXi.

    E14 Federation only does free/busy or sharing calendars/contacts with another organization. It doesn't populate a GAL in the federated forest. So, you'll need a GALsync solution. And this is only E14 to E14. You'll still need to do Availability to Availability if you have E12 in the mix or Inter Org Replication Tool + IIFP/MIIS/ILM in the mix if you have Exchange 2003 in there or use a solution like Quest Collaboration services to take care of all that for you.

    And several MVPs including myself told the Exchange Product Group that we'd like to have our own brokers for Federated Trusts. Whether they will do that, no idea.
