Exchange Server 2007—end of support coming next year

Last week marked one year until Exchange Server 2007 reaches the end of its support lifecycle. Customers who are using Exchange Server 2007 for any of their email and calendar services should begin planning to move the associated mailbox data and resources to Office 365 or update their infrastructure to a newer version of Exchange, such as Exchange Server 2016.

Email server technology has evolved significantly in the nearly 10 years since Exchange Server 2007 became available. Modern Exchange Server versions incorporate major changes in the technologies that enable data high availability and communication between Outlook and Exchange Server; greatly simplify the creation of hybrid connectivity between on-premises Exchange infrastructure and Office 365; and support collaboration scenarios such as modern attachments.

Exchange Server 2007 customers who want to use this opportunity to migrate their email and calendar infrastructure to Office 365 can take advantage of Microsoft FastTrack, our customer success service for planning and migrating to Office 365, a benefit available to Office 365 customers with as few as 50 seats.

For more information about Exchange Server 2007’s end of support in April 2017, please visit the Exchange team blog.
