Well If I had a pound for every email I'd had this week surrounding the availability of the Messaging and Security Feature Pack - I'd currently be holidaying at my beachfront property in the Carribean.
Now we've released Exchange 2003 Service Pack 2 to the Web there is a lot of confusion as to how customers get hold of the Messaging and Security Feature Pack (MSFP) for their devices.
Let me try and clarify this.
Some common questions and answers I've had over the past week:
Q. Will MSFP be available for my Windows Mobile 2003 or earlier device?
A. No - MSFP will be an upgrade to Windows Mobile 5 devices.
Q. Can I download MSFP from Microsoft/Jason - can you send me a copy?
A. No - MSFP will be available as an upgrade through your OEM/Operator
Q. Is MSFP included in the Exchange 2003 SP2 download?
A. No - it is not - it will be released through OEM/Operators as described above.
Q. When will it be available?
A. Current plans are Q1 2006. Check with your OEM/Operator for their current plans/specific dates.
Hope this helps clear up some confusion - feel free to drop a comment/email to me if there are any other questions you have.
