Microsoft Exchange 2010 is reaching End of Support on October 13, 2020, the final step in the software’s life cycle. Though the software will continue to function after this date, Microsoft will stop providing any patches and updates, nor will they provide technical support or time zone updates.
Companies who’s email domain is hosted on Microsoft (Office) 365 with Exchange Online are not affected.
Migration alternatives are:
- Microsoft 365 with Exchange Online
- Microsoft Exchange 2016
Prior to October 13, 2020, you can migrate directly to Microsoft 365. But after this date, you will have to first migrate to Exchange 2016, then migrate to Microsoft 365.
Microsoft’s full report is found here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/enterprise/exchange-2010-end-of-support?view=o365-worldwide
What should you do now ?
- First contact your account manager at LeeShanok to discuss your email server
- We will determine if you’ll need additional licensing and provide a quote with licensing and labor needed
- Then we’ll prepare for and perform your migration
From then on, you can be more at ease with a supported and secure email platform on into the future.
