Exchange 2019

Stick or Stay: Should I Upgrade to Exchange 2019?

by Tony Redmond

Exchange 2019 has been around for six months. It's a good time to consider if on-premises organizations should upgrade or stick with the version of Exchange they run today. Exchange 2019 is a solid release, even if Microsoft's engineering efforts are largely focused on the cloud these days. Of course, moving to Exchange Online is an option too, but perhaps not for the dedicated on-premises deployments.

Exchange Privilege Elevation Vulnerability Addressed by Microsoft Patches

with 3 Comments by Tony Redmond

The recent exposure of a privilege elevation vulnerability that exists in the control Exchange has over Active Directory and EWS push notifications is fixed by cumulative updates for Exchange 2013, Exchange 2016, and Exchange 2019 and a roll-up update for Exchange 2010 SP3. These changes mark an architectural modification for Exchange, something that Microsoft is loathe to do outside major releases. Install the updates now!

Exchange 2010 Nears the End

by Tony Redmond

Exchange 2010 will become unsupported on January 14, 2020. It's time to decide whether to move to Office 365 or Exchange 2016/2019. Exchange 2010 was a really big and important release in the 23-year history of the product, so it's sad to see it heading to the software scrapyard.

    Microsoft Releases Exchange 2019 Preferred Architecture

    by Tony Redmond

    Meeting the commitment given at Ignite 2018, Microsoft has published the preferred architecture for Exchange 2019. As you'd expect, the architecture is highly influenced by the cloud. The fingerprints of Exchange Online are all over the document, but at least it's nice to see some technology (the MetaCache) being transferred from the cloud to on-premises customers.

    by Tony Redmond

    Microsoft has shipped Exchange 2019, the latest in a long line of enterprise-class email servers stretching back to 1996. The latest version runs on Windows Server 2019 and Microsoft recommends that you use Server Core. There's fewer people using on-premises servers today, but those that do can install the best email server in the business.

    Microsoft Launches Exchange 2019 Into Preview

    by Tony Redmond

    Microsoft has just launched the preview version of Exchange 2019. The good news is that it's a new version. What might be unexpected is the lack of new features. Some worthy plumbing won't turn user heads, but then again, when you're the best standalone email server on the planet, do you need to change very much? Dropping Unified Messaging will cause some brows to darken. Expect some sparks at Ignite.
