    4 months after it went gold and there's already a beta SP? Is this normal?

    When Exchange 2003 came out I couldn't tell you the difference between a DC and a hole in the wall. So needless to say, I was oblivious to any Exchange SP that came out back then.

      I feel that Microsoft has made 2 decisions regarding Ex2007:

      1) They have now understood the fact that because they made Ex2007 available too soon, it had a lot of necessary "features" missing, or moved aside in favor of other, more attractive "features". SP1 will correct this situation and we will get many wanted features back, plus a bunch of new cool stuff.

      2) Many IT managers feel that a new and strategic product like Ex2007 should not be installed until SP1 is shiped. So, MS will ship SP1.

        Its a BETA of the service pack for Exchange.

        The service is not expected to be released for some time yet - SP2 for Exchange 2003 was around for four or five months before it is released.

        The target is when Longhorn server is eventually released.

        There is a good write up on the service pack on the blog:

        Lots of things were cut to make the RTM date, so it is simply a matter of finishing those off and then patching anything major.
