On April 11, 2017, Exchange Server 2007 will be End of Life.
If you haven’t already started your migration from Exchange 2007 to Office 365 or Exchange 2016, I would recommend to start it now!
What is end of life ?
Microsoft will not provide the following for Exchange 2007:
- Free or paid assisted support (including custom support agreements)
- Bug fixes for issues that are discovered and that may impact the stability and usability of the server
- Security fixes for vulnerabilities that are discovered and that may make the server vulnerable to security breaches
- Time zone updates
Above mentioned topics are really important to have updated exchange system within most mid sized and global organizations. It is always good to have global benchmarking of IT security in all applications within a company and best practice to have healthy systems in place with latest ones. Exchange 2016 and Office 365 platforms provide advanced capabilities to empower your users.
Hence, I would strongly recommend and suggest to move your email application!
