Important Information for Customers with non-standard RPC Proxy Settings

If you use customized RPC Proxy registry settings, be aware that these might be overwritten by this or future updates. Please make sure that you verify any custom registry settings after you apply this update.

Important information for Outlook Web Access users about Outlook Web Access customization

When you apply an update rollup package, the update process copies over the Outlook Web Access files if it is necessary. If you have modified the Logon.aspx file or other Outlook Web Access files, the customizations will be overwritten to make sure that Outlook Web Access is updated correctly. After you apply the update rollup package, you must re-create Outlook Web Access customization in Logon.aspx.

We recommend that you always make a backup copy of any customized Outlook Web Access files before you apply the update rollup. For more information about Outlook Web Access customization details, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb891803.aspx (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb891803.aspx)

If you are a CAS Proxy Deployment Guidance customer, and if you have deployed CAS-CAS proxying, apply the update rollup to the Internet-facing Client Access servers before you apply the update rollup to the non-Internet-facing Client Access servers. For other Exchange Server 2007 configurations, the order in which you apply the update rollup to the servers is not important.

For more information about CAS-CAS proxying, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
