Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) has been released Finally

To everybody who were waiting the Final Release of the First Service Pack of the greatest product ever which is MS Exchange Server 2007 RTM Version, I want to tell them that the waiting time is over :) :) , Microsoft has finally released and published the Service Pack 1 for Exchange 2007 for both 32-Bit Version ( which is used non-production network) and for 64-Bit Version (which is used in the production network).
Exchange Server 2007 SP1 conatains several new features and improvements will extend the Anywhere Access capabilities of Exchange Server 2007 to help make employees more productive on whatever device they’re using, provide additional Operational Efficiency tools for administrators seeking a streamlined management and deployment experience, and enable advanced Built-in Protection for more robust high availability and compliance scenarios.

to start using the SP1, I advice you all to deploy it first on your testing environment, either using 32-Bit version before you deploy the 64-Bit on your production server to get familiar with the deployment and installation steps. if your testing environment built on 64-Bit Servers and you have already deployed the 64-Bit RMT version of Exchange on it, then use the 64-Bit version of SP1 on this testing environment also before deploy it on your production network.
Good Luck for your Testing, and take care while deploying it under the Production Network.
