Upcoming book publication | Exchange 2013 SP1 – PowerShell v5

I wanted to let you all know that a second book will soon be released, about Exchange 2013 SP1 and PowerShell v5. At a current stage using PS v5 with 2013 SP1 isn’t supported. However, there are some new great things around it and those will be brought up in the book. I have received tons of great feedback from Hakim Taoussi, Mark Andrews and Steve Goodman. In summary, it was a great collaboration between the Packt Publishing people and me as author and the reviewers. Really great contributions everyone!…
