Are you as excited as I am?? Just got notice that the public preview of E2016 is ready. I’m looking forward to playing with this in my lab environment.
Architectural Changes in Exchange Server 2016
The big change in the server roles architecture is the further consolidation of server roles into just two:
- Mailbox server role
- Edge Transport server role
The Mailbox server role consolidates both of the required Exchange Server 2013 roles (Mailbox and Client Access), and all of the required Exchange Server 2010 roles (Mailbox, Client Access, Hub Transport, and Unified Messaging) into a single server role.
