Exchange 2007 (and its Add-On Security) Ships

Exchange 2007 didn't exactly live up to its name -- the darn thing just shipped and last time I checked, it's still 2006. To be fair, it was just released to manufacturing, which means it has to work its way through this process before you can actually start installing the finished goods.

Along with the messaging server, Microsoft is shipping a Forefront tool designed to protect Exchange from viruses, hackers and malware. This Forefront product is based on Sybari, a third party bought by Microsoft.
