Following are key highlights:

  • The solutions take advantage of the enhancements to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, improving communications and information sharing, and work productivity for SMBs.
  • Utilizing Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, HMC 4.0 provides anywhere access for users, built-in protection from spam and viruses, and operational efficiency for IT administrators.
  • Windows-based Hosting Version 4.5 leverages SharePoint 3.0, which provides 40 customized templates designed to help address specific business needs, such as time management, accounting, and project tracking, and new tools to create Web-based content, such as blogs and wikis.
