Have a look at the table below to find out what new features are included in Exchange 2010:
|New Features in MSE 2010 SP2||Benefits for your organisation|
|Enhanced Outlook Web App (OWA)||OWA now fully supports all major browsers including Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, and of course Internet Explorer.|
|The web interface changed massively from Exchange 2003/2007 and users can theme their interfaces individually. Have a look here for our favourite ones.|

|Multiple domains in a single organisation||This feature is only available in the full hosting version of Exchange 2010 which SMS have conciously decided to deploy to enable easier management for instance for joint ventures with teams in different companies and on different domain names. It will therefore be possible to allow people to see all companies in the group in their Global Address List (GAL). Exchange 2010 however keeps these companies separate for administration and logins, but yet users are able to see each other in the GAL for ease of communication between them.|
|Enhanced Mail Rules||Individual mail rules can be applied inside OWA for each user making the management of your users' mailboxes easier and more efficient - even for users on the go.|
|Disclaimer (Optional)||This new server option allows the automatic addition of your own customised disclaimer or signature to all outgoing emails sent by our MS Exchange server - an essential addition if your business is involved in Financial Services and good business practice even if you're not.|
