Exchange 2010 End of Support Happening Soon

Time is running out for Exchange 2010, what will you do?

Mainstream support for Exchange 2010 ended in January 2015. Per standard practice, Microsoft extended support ends five years after mainstream. Now, you have less than a year left before extended support ends for this version of Exchange on October 13, 2020, a grace period Microsoft recently extended.

Severe Implications of End of Extended Support

On October 13, 2020 there will be no further security patches, fixes, or updates, no available support for Exchange 2010. Nothing. It all ends with the anticipation that users have already migrated to a more current platform.

Every hacker and other bad actor on the internet is aware of this end of support. They know your platform is vulnerable and are painting a target on your back. After October 13, 2020, they will all go looking for those who are still using Exchange Server 2010.

So, What Can You Do to Protect Your Business?

October may seem far off but being proactive can save you stress as you plan your migration from Exchange 2010 to either Office 365 or Exchange Server 2016. We will need to examine  your retention policies to help you determine what older segment of your mail store will be archived and what segment will be migrated to the new platform. There are rights issues, governance issues, technical issues, and others which need to be discussed and planned for.

Here’s some good new

Exchange 2010 – End of Support (EOS)

On October 13, 2020, Exchange Server 2010 will reach end of support. If you haven’t already begun your migration from Exchange 2010 to Office 365 or Exchange 2016, now’s the time to start your planning.

Exchange Server, like almost all Microsoft products, has a support lifecycle during which we provide new features, bug fixes, security fixes, and so on. This lifecycle typically lasts for 10 years from the date of the product’s initial release, and the end of this lifecycle is known as the product’s end of support. When Exchange 2010 reaches its end of support on October 13, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide:

  • Technical support for problems that may occur;
  • Bug fixes for issues that are discovered and that may impact the stability and usability of the server;
  • Security fixes for vulnerabilities that are discovered and that may make the server vulnerable to security breaches;
  • Time zone updates.

Your installation of Exchange 2010 will continue to run after this date. However, because of the changes listed above, we strongly recommend that you migrate from Exchange 2010 as soon as possible.
