Microsoft Corporate Mail Exchange uses Exchange “12”?

April 18th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

It’s funny how people literally can stumble across information around the web, and I literally did that. I was looking for something on the Microsoft website and found something I hadn’t seen before. I thought what the hell, download the .ppt and have a look. I did then saw a URL of the Microsoft Mail Exchange server’s. Nothing big, anyone probably could have guessed it.

However… I do believe they are running Exchange “12” or at least parts of it. Let’s try and gather a little bit of evidence together. Below is a screenshot of Dean’s web access server (the top one) and the bottom one is the Microsoft Outlook Web Access portal.


Can you see the difference in the logo’s? One uses Office 2003 logo’s with (whatever font they use) and the bottom one is the 2007 Office System’s new logo using Segoe UI font, which is of course dubbed the new “Windows Vista font”. Check this then for a bit more proof:

    Yes, they’re running Exchange 12, at least the one public outlook web access one I’m thinking of does.

    Also, while it can be googled and all, I’m going to remove that URL from our site — sorry to play the post Sheriff here 😛 but I’m sensing that we prob don’t need to be linking to it..

    I think this might be just for the exchange group and special individuals. My account doesn’t work here (I get 404) and the main site is which is running 2003, which is what the majority of our mail servers are running right now. 🙂
