Welcome new blogger: Kevin Schwartzmiller

Kevin is heading out this week to start a 5-day training course on ConfigMgr 2007:  SCCM 07 Training Begins.  I know for many of you it will be interesting to continue reading how the training goes, as you are considering attending training yourself.

Check out Kevin’s blog and grab his RSS feed to keep track of how the week goes.

Have you sent an email to the SMS Doc Feedback alias recently?

As most of you should know already, you can send emails directly to the ConfigMgr/SMS docs team at Microsoft using the smsdocs@microsoft.com alias.  The docs team monitors this email address and responds to most feedback, but definitely takes all feedback to this email alias seriously.

Your initial email to the alias will result in an auto-reply, but will generally be followed up later on by a “real” person.  However, the auto-reply now has an interesting line item.  Here’s what you’ll get in return (but, notice the last line in the reply…I’ve highlighted it in red):

The new myITforum.com Community File Share Service unveiled…

Sending large files over the Internet is a real nightmare. Email attachment delivery can be unreliable due to size and content.  Sending large log files to email discussion lists can bog down the email server.  And, FTP is not for everyone. How can you and your organization upload and download large files and ensure that they indeed get delivered?

That's where the myITforum.com Community File Share service comes in!
