ISS maintains the University of Leeds staff e-mail system which currently uses Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 and runs on Windows 2003 servers. Last year, Microsoft released Exchange Server 2007 therefore ISS is in the process of upgrading to the new system.

  • Improved server response times during periods of high activity
  • Quicker search facility
  • Much improved Outlook Web Access with a more advanced calendaring system, enhanced contact and address book management and more configurable options.
