Rollup 7 for E2k7/sp1 looks to be a turd as well as there are many reports of the update
failing during the installation process leaving the server in an unusable state. Apply with
caution!
A recent update to Outlook 2007 really helps speed up the app and allows for much larger cached mode mailbox support (MS claims 5gb now across most hardware should get good performance). This is a big change from the 1-2gb they used to recommend as a max when using cached mode. I've tested this patch on a few systems and it does seem to make performance improvements but time will tell if those improvements stay.

Well that was quick.... rollup 6 turned out to be a turd causing all kinds of issues. MS just
released rollup 7, hopefully it will be better!
