Mailbox Move Request Details Exposed In Exchange 2010 SP1 Beta Console…

The new 2010 SP1 Beta Console brings in more useful information (compared to 2010 RTM) for an administrator regarding a mailbox move request. In Exchange 2010, once a mailbox move request is initiated, the progress can be checked in “Recipient Configuration –> Move Request”.

2010 RTM only exposes few details regarding the mailbox move request.

In 2010 SP1 Beta, the properties of the mailbox move request has two additional tabs and the “General” tab has new information as well.
