In this Artical we will discribe the differents new features Implemented in the Service Pack 2 of Exchange 2010.
The new features are:
Let's take these one per one :
1. Hybrid Configuration Wizard:
The New Hybrid Configuration Wizard is designed to make establishing a hybrid coexistence relationship between your on premise Exchange organization and another Exchange organization as easy as possible.
Scenarios where you would need to establish a hybrid deployment can include Office 365 or another cloud provider, where you will have some mailboxes on premise and others in the cloud either in the short term during migrations, or permanently when you want
to keep some mailboxes on premise and move others to the cloud. Hybrid deployments let you:
It has three main pieces:
2. Address book policies:
In Exchange Server 2010
Service Pack 2 the Address Book Policies (ABP’s) are introduced. Using ABP’s it is again possible to implement Global Address List (GAL) segmentation in Exchange Server 2010. But instead of setting all kinds
of ACL’s in Active Directory an APB is an assignment of one or more Address Lists to a specific mailbox. It is now possible to create multiple ‘organizations’ within one Exchange 2010 environment that have independent Address Lists, completely separated from
3. Outlook Web App Mini:
The mini version of Outlook Web App is designed for using in simple HTML compactible browsers. This version will help mainly the users who were accessing the OWA using their mobile

You can browse through the folders and compose emails and almost all functionalities. Use
Find Someone to check your GAL information, Contacts is the same as Outlook Contacts and so on. It is quite straight forward; hence browse through each option to know more.

Exchange Server 2010 SP2 has provided us the fourth redirection experience. As the name implies, this redirection performs silent redirection to CAS located in another Active Directory site,
but within the same Exchange Organization, that have an OWA ExternalURL.
A new parameter,
CrossSiteRedirectType has been created that is available with
Set-OWAVirtualDirectory cmdlet to support Cross-Site Silent Redirection. This parameter supports two values, Manual and Silent. Cross-Site Silent Redirection is disabled by default which means Manual setting is enabled which would continuously perform
manual redirection between CAS in different Active Directory sites, after you deploy Exchange Server 2010 SP2
Exchange 2010 SP2 also has a host of smaller enhancements:
