Service Pack 2 for Exchange Server 2003 has been released and can be downloaded from here.

Basically this service pack is a big deal as it will provide mobile devices easy access to Exchange Server for e-mail messages, schedules, contact information, and tasks lists. Also with Microsoft Outlook Mobile Access, virtually any mobile device or phone equipped with a Web or Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) browser can retrieve Exchange Server information. More information can be found here.

So what’s the big deal then? You can have all this already with a black berry? Exactly! You don’t need one. No need to buy a RIM server at around $3999 for a 20 user Enterprise server or the extra $27000 for the extra 500 user licence. Oh and this doesn’t include the cost of devices.

Exchange Server 2003 SP2 is $7.50 on CD or free download and you do run the very serious risk of being able to use your existing architecture!

Hmmm, suddenly the Blackberry looks expensive.

For more info Eileen Brown is the Guru!
