With Beta 2 approaching, Exchange "12" needed a name. I know the suspense has been killing everyone.

 

Well the wait is finally over:

 

Exchange Server 2007

 

If you keep hearing the team talk about "E12" , "12", or "Exchange 12" - please understand - it's all the same thing. It just takes a while for us to adjust.

 

Thanks!

Hello everybody,
Hot off the You Had Me At EHLO... the official name of E12 is Exchange Server 2007,...

That is original.:)

Interesting since I suspect the internal version is likely 7.0 the numbers actually match for a change.

I bet some marketing "genious" spent six months and $500,000 figuring that name out!

When will they realise that "dated" names only serve to reinforce the length of time between releases.. (eg. Sql 2000 - Sql 2005)

Clever move that..

As Terry mentioned on the Exchange blog today, we have a new [and terribly exciting] name: Exchange Server...

So it means it will be released in Dec 2007.
I hope for you ;-)

Microsoft has released the name of Exchange 12. It is to be

How do I get one of those posters? ! ! ! !

Oh, good, they're going to stick with a version number and name that makes sense.

Well, although I started this blog with the best intentions, I have been very bad at keeping it regular.&amp;nbsp;...

Back from my vacations, I was confronted with the new official name for Exchange &quot;12&quot;: Exchange 2007....
Not applicable
Oh, come on... can't we get back to names like Kluane, Osmium, Platinum, Mercury (for those who remember that fiasco), Titanium and all sorts of other "useful" monikers that only made sense in the buildings between 520 and BelRed?

Please make the downlevel browser experience in OWA not suck.

Thank you,

haha good name!

the simpler, however inaccurate, the name makes it easier for "C-LEVEL" folks to understand what you are talking about.

A CIO knows that Exch 2003 is not Exch 2007 and vice versa.  Stupid, I agree, but C-level is where the money is.
