Exchange MP Request to Product Group

From the early days I have always though that the Exchange MP was a great example of using MOM to the full. They put in cluster awareness when MOM 2000 was not! They put in a lot of advanced features but unfortunately to get these features working you had to configure them. In MOM 2000 …
