Attachment Database with Deduplication

Title says it all. Exchange databases grows mainly because of the attachments witch causes challenges to backup and maintain operations. There has to be some kind of solution in the future that reduces database size and disk utilization.

 

It would be a killer feature that all the attachments could be stored to a deduplication database and original message could refer with link to the attachment.

Enhanced Retention Policies

At the moment Retention Policies are only triggered on their retention age. Enhancing it with additional regular expressions (like transport/mail rules) will help manage the mailbox. For instance: Mail to archive when retention age is 90 days, unless object has attachment the mail is moved to archive when retention age is 45 days.

Integrated multi layers, multi engines antivirus & antispam back

The combination of Exchange 2010 and Forefront protection for Exchange 2010 is/was offering a decent multi engines antivirus and antispam solution.

Push Activesync Organizational settings to Activesync Policies

Currently quarantine, block or allow, and approval for activesync devices is performed using the Set-ActiveSyncOrganizationSettings powershell cmdlet.

 

These features should be baked into Activesync Policies, allowing Exchange Administrators to prioritise block, quarantine and allow configurations based on the Activesync device policy a user mailbox has been set.

Exchange currently has the Scheduling Assistant in Outlook and OWA, but unless you have Exchange Federated partners in order to access each others organizations Free/Busy information, it's limited to internal users. This makes planning with external users more cumbersome. Basically something like Doodle.com, within Exchange but without the need for federation or extensive preparations.

More control over Out of Office reply

You have Inside and Outside Organization and you can even enable that only (outside) contacts receive an OOF reply. I would like a little bit more control over that, for instance by by white or blacklisting (external) contacts, so that they will or will not receive an OOF reply. Also the ability sending an OOF reply for external addresses only when you do not have them as a contact. It's reasonable to assume that contacts... more »
