Exchange Server 2003 Beta 2
Exchange 2003, formerly known by the code name "Titanium," is the next version in the Exchange messaging and collaboration server line of products. Scheduled to be released in mid-2003, Exchange 2003 will provide many new features and enhancements to improve reliability, manageability, and security. Exchange 2003 will help increase information worker productivity while helping organizations reduce their total cost of ownership (TCO) in areas such as server and site consolidation. In addition, Exchange 2003 is the first version of Exchange designed to run on Windows .NET Server 2003.
Order the Exchange 2003 Beta 2 Kit
To achieve the best possible evaluation experience, you should deploy Exchange 2003 Beta 2 in a test environment with Microsoft Windows® .NET Server 2003 Release Candidate 2 (RC2) and Microsoft Office 11 Beta 1. You can register to order the Exchange 2003 Beta 2 Kit on CD, which includes Exchange 2003 Beta 2, Windows .NET Server 2003 RC2, Office 11 Beta 1, and a resource CD. The kit is offered at no additional charge, but shipping, handling, and any applicable taxes apply.
And the reason for Microsoft to include this nice extra?
"It comes with Exchange 2003 because Office 11 has features office xp doesn't and you need to see the compatibility between office 11 and exchange 2003"
Obviously some Office11 beta testers have had there feathers ruffled by this move, and have been left wondering why have a private beta if Microsoft are just going to give out the code to anyone that wants it anyway.
