What’s New in Exchange 2010 SP1

  • you can now select a new option to install the required Windows roles and features for each selected Exchange 2010 SP1 server role
  • you can manage Exchange ActiveSync devices using the Exchange Control Panel (ECP).
  • SMS Sync is a new feature in Exchange ActiveSync that works with Windows Mobile 6.1 with the Outlook Mobile Update and with Windows Mobile 6.5. SMS Sync is the ability to synchronize messages between a mobile phone or device and an Exchange 2010 Inbox
  • Improved management of the relationship between Office Communications Server and Outlook Web App. Configuration is stored in Active Directory instead of a web.config file and can be managed via cmdlet
  • In Exchange 2010 RTM, when the thresholds defined on a latency-based client throttling policy parameter such as EWSPercentTimeInCAS were exceeded, Exchange would cause the transactions and connections to fail. In Exchange 2010 SP1, exceeding the thresholds defined on a latency-based throttling policy parameter will not cause a failure. Instead, Exchange will delay transactions and connections until the transaction rate is within the policy limits. Such transaction and connection delays will usually not be apparent to end users. Client throttling policy parameters with a hard quota limits such as EWSMaxSubscriptions will cause a failure when exceeded. As an administrator, you can monitor the impact of your performance policies and make adjustments as needed.
  • With the New-MailboxRepairRequest cmdlet, you can detect and repair mailbox and database corruption issues
  • The Database Log Growth Troubleshooter (Troubleshoot-DatabaseSpace.ps1) is a new script that allows you to control excessive log growth of mailbox databases
  • Hierarchical address book support allows you to create and configure your address lists and offline address books in a hierarchical view
  • Continuous replication – block mode
  • Active mailbox database redistribution
  • Exchange 2010 SP1 introduces new mailbox audit logging functionality to allow you to track mailbox access by administrators, delegates, and mailbox owners, and actions taken on mailbox items such as moving or deleting a message, using SendAs or SendOnBehalf rights to send messages, and accessing a mailbox folder or a message
