Exchange 2013 RTM CU1 Status

Originally, we stated we would deliver Exchange 2013 RTM Cumulative Update 1 (CU1) by the end of this quarter.  Unfortunately, we are not going to meet that goal. We know that many of you will be disappointed as a result of this statement. We understand your pain, however, the decision to delay is due to an issue we found in our final test pass coupled with feedback from members within our Technology Adoption Program community. Specifically, we found an issue with Exchange 2010 coexistence. The issue actually had an easy... [Lire la suite]

Journal Officiel : le BYOD remplacé par l'AVEC
