For Microsoft, Improvement is in the Exchange

Microsoft has released the first beta of Microsoft Exchange 12, the forthcoming
version
of the company’s messaging software designed to give corporate
IT staffs greater control over data transfer.

The Redmond, Wash., software giant has fashioned Exchange 12, which fuels
tasks like e-mail and calendar planning in corporations, with greater in-box
access for employees on the move and greater security to stymie spam and
viruses.

The improvements come at a time when more companies are watching data
volumes balloon thanks to the growing glut of e-mail. Administrators need to
be able to increase the scale of data company servers can handle, so
Microsoft has improved Exchange 12 by designing it to run on 64-bit server
systems.

In other new features, Exchange System Manager offers easier navigation and
new filtering capabilities through a new graphical user interface (GUI).

The new Windows command line shell, code-named “Monad,” automates routine
tasks to save administrators time, while automatic client detection and
configuration simplifies the setup of the Outlook e-mail client to save
time.

To serve employees who need to access their inbox regardless of where they
may be, Exchange 12 will include a speech-enabled messaging platform that
integrates e-mail, fax and voice mail in the user’s inbox.

Thanks to Outlook Web Access, the software will allows users to access their
inboxes from mobile devices and any phone with a Web browser from anywhere
without a special network connection.

With spam accounting for nearly 40 percent of the e-mail sent in North
America on an average day, and worms and virus threats mounting, Microsoft
wants to boost the security in Exchange 12.
