Exchange 2010 Awaits Tweaks

Exchange 2010 shipped only five months ago, but already Microsoft is looking to trot out tweaks. SP1 will enter beta this June and will feature new management functions and a tool that imports .PST files. In case you hadn't heard, Exchange 2010 has a whole new way of dealing with personal folders and archives. The .PST import is really just a bridge between the old and the new.

Exchange's search function will also be fine-tuned by giving only one result even if the searched for e-mail was sent out to multiple mailboxes.

Finally, OWA is faster by using a "pre-fetch" and can better handle big attachments.
