Eriq Neale wrote this post in September, 2007. Given that I referenced it yet again today while configuring a customer’s SBS 2003 R2 Premium with ISA 2004 to get IMAPS running for an employee’s Mac at their house so they could use Apple Mail and IMAP, I figured I would drop a quick note of thanks here to Eriq and link to it for my own quick reference to dig it up again later.
Thanks Eriq! Thanks to Tim too for encouraging you to write it up!
Last Thursday at our monthly Puget Sound Small Business Server User Group (www.pssbs.org) we had the question come up from one of our members who is trying to figure out where his SA benefits are in the Software Assurance world of eOpen. He was only sent part of the full suite of updated software he was expecting from Microsoft. For the definitive answer we went to Eric Ligman (of course, who else do we turn to for all that is licensing and Microsoft). He in turn led us over to his blog for the answer. Check out the two blog posts listed below for the steps involved if you are have SBS 2003 SA benefits and want to get your SBS 2008 bits.
How do we get the SBS Software Assurance benefits such as: Outlook 2007, Entourage 2008, ISA 2006 + additional Windows Server 2003, and Office SharePoint Designer 2007 now that SBS 2008 is out?
Part numbers for the SBS SA benefits media kits you need from my earlier post
Thanks to Susan Bradley for bringing my attention to this Microsoft KB. It looks like in Essential Business Server 2008 if you create a new recipient and attempt to send them mail, it can take up to four hours for the Exchange Edge Server to synch up to the Messaging Server unless you manually run the Start-EdgeSynchronization cmdlet and force a synch, resulting in a 550 5.1.1 User unknown NDR being generated.
See Microsoft KB 961303 for the details. Looks like they are still updating the KB as of this time.
