Exchange Server – Documentation (Topic Status)

Over a period of time, I have seen lot of people asking questions on errors in Exchange documentation. It is imperative that one be aware of STATUS of the topic, before pointing it out to the Product Team & Technical Writers. Though Microsoft makes the documentation available, there is a clear status on every topic on the accuracy and progress.

Every Topic starts with the status

The list of all Topic Status is as follows…..
