Microsoft Ships Exchange Server 2007 Beta 2

On Monday, Microsoft announced the immediate availability of Exchange Server 2007 Beta 2, the latest prerelease version of the company's upcoming email and messaging server. Exchange 2007 Beta 2, and a companion security product, Forefront Security for Exchange Server Beta (previously Antigen for Exchange Server), are both available for public download.

"Today we enter the home stretch of delivering an unparalleled messaging solution, providing our customers with a cost-effective way to meet their most challenging messaging needs including compliance management and protection against constantly evolving security threats," said Microsoft Corporate Vice President Dave Thompson. "In conjunction with Exchange Server 2007, Forefront Security for Exchange will provide our customers with the advanced anti-virus and anti-spam protection needed in today’s world."

Exchange 2007, previously code-named Exchange 12, adds several new features in Beta 2 and is far closer to what customers can expect from the final product, which is still due in late 2006 or early 2007. Beta 2 includes better support for mobile users, better email searching capabilities, Anywhere Access technologies for connecting to Exchange via phone, and much more. I'll be posting a review of Exchange 2007 Beta 2 this week at the SuperSite for Windows.
