I have been waiting for this for a while, http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2011/10/13/future-of-hosting-mode.aspx.
- 180 U turn on hosting!
- You don’t need to use /Hosting Mode, on-premise is probably the preferred choice now
- No new features will be added to SP2 /Hosting Mode, that includes UM
- You will probably need to use an automation partner or have s**t hot Exchange Admins
While I do not agree with this, I do understand working with one product with tweaks it is mush easier. Looks like is back to the way I used to do Hosted Exchange 2000, 2003 and 2007 before /Hosting Mode was born.
I’ know what I’m doing for the rest of the month….
