Dedicated Exchange 2007 Server

I built an Exchange 2007 server just for OCMS. When I first encountered Vista and discoered that OWA broke, I spent all this time getting Exchange built (which is one of the most difficult IT things you can do). I actually had to have an Exchange admin help me with it, and my setup is nowhere near as complicated as a full-blown enterprise.

I ended up just upgrading Exchange 2003 to the latest service pack. That wasn’t easy either, because I had to UNinstall a bunch of stuff from Exchange before MS would let me apply the service pack. After the upgrade, then OWA works just as well as it did in IE6. They changed OWA’s javascript to not rely on the WYSIWYG components in IE…


Still, eventually I need to replace the WYSIWYG capabilities of all my CMSes on OCMS’s back end, even if I never use Firefox for it. Just one more thing to add to the list…
