Windows Vista support is ending - Good Riddance

After April 11, 2017, Windows Vista customers will no longer receive new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates from Microsoft. Microsoft has provided support for Windows Vista for the past 10 years, but the time has come for us, along with our hardware and software partners, to invest our resources towards more recent technologies so that we can continue to deliver great new experiences.

If your running Windows Vista , you won't be one of our customers , but please upgrade to a new version of windows or contact us to help you!

Bye Bye Exchange 2007 End of Life Today - Users of Small Business Server 2008

Exchange 2007 has officially now been dropped by Microsoft today

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/exchange/2016/04/11/exchange-server-2007-t-1-year-and-counting/

A great product which was the base for Exchange 2010 and up helping with DAG setups and using powershell , it will be sad to see it go!

This was bundled in with Small Business Server 2008 so if you are using this version you will need to look at migrating your users elseswhere! 

What are your migration paths?

1) Upgrade and Migrate to the Cloud e.g. Office 365 (using their FastTrack service if you have a Minimum of 50 Users Seats) 

2) Upgrade and migrate your server to Exchange 2013 ( Can only do one jump so no Exchange 2016 ! )
