(Rolling my eyes).  Well of COURSE they've solved problems.  Why  
before Exchange scheduling conflicts over conference rooms were  
settled with gunfire.  Sheesh.

I've been one ... one place where Exchange's Groupware facility was  
used as intended - and it was used well to coordinate calendaring,  
work, etc for three hundred people in twenty offices across the US.   
But that's been the ONLY place.  I note that since that company  
merged with $day_job it's use (despite the fact that Mother Company  
is far more in thrall to Microsoft than the acquisition was)  
decreased to nil - I still have the ability (despite changing jobs  
into the Mother Company) to that tree and it's been over a year since  
anything was updated there.

Of course part of the reason is there isn't anything left of the  
acquisition bar a few nifty services and some employees.  But that's  
another story of bile and woe.
