How do I determine which version of Exchange Server we are running?

Some features of PoliteMail and PoliteMail Server are dependent upon which version of Exchange Server you are running. You can look-up your Exchange Server version right from your Outlook desktop.

With Outlook running, press and hold down the CTRL key, while right-clicking the Outlook status icon that’s located in the Windows notification area to the far lower right of the Windows task bar (the opposite side from the Windows Start menu).

In Windows Vista:

In Windows 7:

Now select Connection Status and scroll to the far right. You will see a Version column at the top, and the Exchange version for your account will be listed there.

The version number is broken up into 4 sections, PrimaryVersion.ServicePack.RollupBuild.Revision
