Exchange 2010 Info Trickles

Exchange 2010 is in the hands of manufacturers and should be broadly available for purchase soon. So why is Microsoft still letting its details out in dribs and drabs? So it can get publicity, like this here newsletter item. Once again, I get suckered by the big Microsoft PR machine.

This information is actually of interest to potential customers, so I might as well share. The big news, which customers should and may already know, is that mobile access to Exchange servers is free, or at least that's what a Microsoft blog indicates. But if you want integrated voicemail, you best get an enterprise license, the company says. Overall, the CALs will be roughly the same as previous versions, with Enterprise CALs running at $35.

Oh, and expect yet another announcement in a week or so when the software is formally available. Dang, I might have to write about that, too!
