Over at the Exchange Team blog they just announced some additional info on sp2
and database size limits. One really cool feature now available in both standard and
enterprise is the ablility to set a maximum size limit for a database. This was something
not available in the past and is a nice addition. They also give you a 24hr warning window
before taking the database offline so you can take the appropriate action. Hopefully
these changes will be implemented in the UI instead of as registry settings.

Microsoft just announced a new 'SBS-like' offering for medium size businsesses (50-500 users)
that will included Longhorn server and E12 (among other things.) It's called 'Microsoft Windows Server Centro' and will probably end up being a multi-server solution with a managed interface.

Sounds Interesting.

Looks like there is more controversy over Sender-ID and SPF brewing. Since spammers
have been the biggest adopter of Sender-ID/SPF it remains to be seen how well this will
combat spam.
