As our Limerick contest ended close to 2 weeks now, we figured we should announce our winners. Without further ado, here they are!

1st prize winner (will receive an
Exchange branded Zune)

There once was a gal with FiveFive

Her mail system was barely alive

She sat at her desk

And thought “oh what a mess”

I need to upgrade to survive


So she upgraded to E2003

And she experienced some level of glee

Her transport state was a link

And she had active sync

But she was missing that VOIP


She moved quickly to native mode

Required to travel the road

Up to E2007

She was told it was heaven

And 64bit could handle the load


The new design, well it gave her control

Divided now by function and role

Hub and mailbox you see

Edge in the DMZ

A thing called UM and  CASserole?


So what is this new CAS role dish?

No not something to do with  phish

It serves clients you see

Like IMAP and POP3

And other stuff somewhat nebbish


None of this made her afraid

She proceeded with the upgrade

No longer a zero

She now was a hero

Running everything on a few blades


Most tasks are no longer a chore

Management no longer a bore

You might say “Oh do tell”

It’s the management shell

Which is at simplicity’s core


So get moving, get going today

And let’s see if you too will say

That this is the best version

A joyful excursion

Now go forth and enjoy your frappe!


2nd prize winner (will receive a $25 gift cert and an E2007 shirt)

Exchange 2007 sure is great,

Migrating mail will soon be my fate,

But Powershell is slick,

And does the job quick,

So I won't be stuck working too late!


3rd prize winner (will receive a $25 gift cert)

Unified messaging is finally here,

I've been waiting for almost a year.

To: hear to my VM,

From: an IE plug-in,

This Subject: will give out a cheer!


Honorable mention pick (an internal MS submission)

With viruses sprouting like crab grass

We knew we could not let ‘em all pass.

Forefront’s our option

For prime virus stoppin’

And saving the mail admin’s…. butt.

Congratulations to all of the winners!

We are contacting our winners offline to get the shipping squared away. Thank you all for participating!
