New Exchange 2007 Tools from U-BTech

I was showing a client the “Exchange Tasks 2007” tool from U-BTech website yesterday and noticed some new free tools for Exchange 2007 and Windows 2008.

  • Certificate Manager for Exchange 2007 -Exchange 2007 enables SSL within IIS by default. Using PowerShell commands, certificate creation and management is quite confusing and often results with incorrect results due to the nature of the syntax. U-BTech Solutions is providing Certificate Manager for Exchange Server 2007 freely, to ease the process with a simple, easy to use GUI.
  • SimplyPSO – Windows Server 2008 introduces a new feature to create separate password policies for different users or groups within the same Active Directory domain. In all previous versions of the Windows Server family of products, password policy has been configured on the domain level alone. The new feature is called fine grained password policy objects and is available when the domain functionality level is set to: Windows Server 2008 native. Unfortunately, there is no simple user interface to configure Password Settings Objects in the Windows Server 2008 environment and in order to configure PSOs, we need to dive deep into the ADSI editing tool. SimplyPSO is a graphical and useful tool that can be invoked directly from the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in.
  • ESIEMail Protector – ESIEMail Protector (pronounced EASY Mail Protector) is a product dedicated to one goal: “Securing your email communications”. By using ESIEMail Protector you can use Encryption, Digital Signature and IRM Permissions (Information Rights Management) to secure your messaging environment, hence the name.
