Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 3 released

Exchange Server 2007 SP3 supports all Exchange 2007 roles on the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system.

Exchange 2007 SP3 provides support only for a new installation of Exchange on Windows Server 2008 R2.

Exchange 2007 SP3 is not supported in an upgrade scenario on Windows Server 2008 R2. For example, Exchange 2007 SP3 does not support the following installation scenarios:

  • A new Exchange 2007 SP3 installation on a Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer that has been upgraded from Windows Server 2008
  • Upgrading Exchange 2007 SP2 to Exchange 2007 SP3 on a Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer that has been upgraded from Windows Server 2008
  • Upgrading the operating system from Windows Server 2008 to Windows Server 2008 R2 on a computer that has Exchange 2007 SP3 installed

Exchange Server 2007 SP3 provides

  • further flexibility with the addition of Windows Server 2008 R2 support for server roles and Windows 7 support for the Exchange management tools.
  • These additions, along with enhancements for the advanced protection options against e-mail security threats, such as spam and viruses and the tools which help manage internal compliance and high availability needs provide Exchange administrators with the tools they need to manage their Exchange 2007 environments efficiently.
  • Exchange 2007 SP3 introduces password reset functionality for Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.
  • Exchange 2007 SP3 includes updates to the Exchange Search (MSSearch) component.
  • MSSearch provides support for creating full text indexes for Exchange stores.
  • Exchange 2007 SP3 updates the MSSearch binary files to MSSearch 3.1.
  • Exchange 2007 SP3 includes Active Directory schema changes for certain Unified Messaging (UM) mailbox attributes.
  • Exchange 2007 SP3 includes support for Right-to-Left text in e-mail message disclaimers in a right-to-left language, such as Arabic.
  • In earlier versions of Exchange, when you use a transport rule to create a disclaimer in a right-to-left language on an Exchange 2007 Hub Transport server, the text appears incorrectly when you view it from Outlook 2007.
  • Exchange 2007 SP3 adds functionality to the transport rule setting to fully support right-to-left text in disclaimers

Issues

  1. In the recently released Exchange 2007 Service Pack 3, there’s a version mismatch between the Outlook Web Access (OWA) S/MIME Control, an Active X control used to provide S/MIME support in OWA. After you install SP3, users who have the control installed will get prompted to install the latest version of the control. The way this works – the code compares the “Version” property of the client S/MIME control (MIMECTL.DLL) on the user’s computer with the ProductVersion property of the MSI file (OWASMIME.MSI) on the Client Access Server. to know more click Exchange 2007 SP3 and OWA S/MIME Version Mismatch from Microsoft Exchange Team Blog
