1. Exchange 2010 Service Pack 2 is Here!
Welcome to the December 2011 edition of the MSE Newsletter! Unless you have been living under a rock, you are well aware that the Exchange team recently released the long-awaited service pack 2 for Exchange Server 2010.
The Exchange team has also been busy publishing information over at the Exchange team blog:
In addition, they have written a multi-tenancy focused white paper that should assist Exchange hosting providers and other organizations that want to implement some form of segmentation in an Exchange 2010 environment.
Lastly, the Exchange team now maintains a list of Control Panel solutions from third party vendors.
As you can see, this page is similar to the page which lists all hardware load balancer vendors that had their solution validated.
Based on the above, you have a lot of reading to do before you go offline and spend the Christmas holiday with your friends and families.
That was all I had to share with you in this MSE Newsletter! See you in January 2012!

6. Ask Henrik Walther a question
Okay so now that Exchange 2010 SP2 has been released, does that mean that Exchange 2010 in hosting mode no longer is supported?
No absolutely not. Exchange 2010 in hosting mode is still fully supported and the switch is also included in Exchange 2010 SP2. But since hosting mode will disappear with the next version of Exchange, you should consider using a control panel combined with the new Address Book Policies functionality to do the required segmentation. For more information see this white paper.
