We are pleased to announce the availability of Exchange Server 2010 SP1 Beta.

As we shared in Yes Virginia, there is an Exchange Server 2010 SP1 in April, Exchange Server 2010 SP1 Beta incorporates a number of feature updates including: archiving and discovery enhancements, a faster Outlook Web App (OWA), upgraded mobility features, and several improvements in the management UI. The SP1 beta is available to the public and can be downloaded here.

We also wanted to let you know that Exchange Server 2007 SP3 is still on track and will be available soon, so stay tuned to the Exchange Team Blog.

We leverage multiple channels to gather your feedback, from the customer deployments in the Technology Adoption Program (TAP) and on-site visits to social media channels such as this blog and our technical forums. Please continue to share your feedback and follow us on Twitter, @msftexchange. We promise we'll continue to listen.

The Microsoft Communications Server "14" team also has feature announcements today. Check out their new blog post.
