    Hi all

    I thought I'd drop a quick post on to mention the word Necropost. The urban dictionary defines this to mean:

    to post in a thread that has been "dead", by being inactive for a relatively long period.

    Essentially, while it's great to use Certforums as a record of things we've said over the years, and there will be times when it's appropriate (perhaps you predicted something would happen and years later it did or the cert is very much relevant today) there is very little benefit to anyone if someone says 'good post' on a thread for an out of date cert posted in 2017, as happened three times recently.

    Could new members please refrain from 'necroposting' please, as they'll likely be deleted and may result in you getting banned if you continue to do so.

    Much love
    JK

    Good stuff – I may drag up some SBS threads though just to remember the good old days :)

    Just noticed that support ended in Janaury 2020 for SBS - thought it ended well before then. Good product in its day for sure but Microsoft 365 appears to be the future now - according to Microsoft anyway :)

    Wow yeah I'd have guessed 2014 or something like that! A great product. O365 is awesome but I'm old fashioned, I think if you want it on prem you should have it on prem

    Agree but don’t miss having to run eseutil when Exchange didn’t shutdown correctly and the mailbox database would not mount. Had to do that soooo many times back in the Exchange 2003 days! :)

    I think wouldn't you usually install it on one of these HP Micros as well? Very cost effective really, for small businesses

    Yeah – very common on HP Micro servers. Another issue was I would inherit some servers that had a software raid configured with the drive then partitioned for C:\ (system) D:\ (logs) and E: \ (database) – the performance was terrible! Don’t miss those days! :)
