With upcoming releases of Windows Vista and a new Office suite, new Microsoft betas would seem to come hot out of the oven every week. Starting today Microsoft made available public betas of Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, and the new Forefront Security for Exchange Server. Exchange Server 2007 builds on the leading e-mail, messaging and calendaring server with new features for improved security, remote and mobile access, compliance management and unified messaging. Forefront Security for Exchange Server helps provide advanced protection against viruses, worms and spam, and is the first product available under the recently announced Microsoft Forefront brand for business security products.

Exchange Server 2007 beta 2 delivers the following:
* Built-in protective technologies enable confidential business communications while helping to meet compliance regulations.
* Increased productivity for employees is enabled by anywhere access to e-mail, voice mail, calendars and contacts from a variety of clients and devices.
* New levels of operational efficiency are possible through capabilities that optimise hardware and networking investments and features that help increase productivity for administrators.
