Cumulative Updates for Exchange 2013
Topic Last Modified: 2013-11-11
With Microsoft Exchange Server 2013, we have changed the way we deliver hotfixes and service packs. Instead of the priority-driven hotfix release and rollup update model used by previous versions of Microsoft Exchange, Exchange Server 2013 now adheres to a scheduled delivery model. In this model, cumulative updates are released every three months.
For more information about Cumulative Update 3 (CU3) for Exchange 2013, see Released: Exchange Server 2013 Cumulative Update 3.
To download Cumulative Update 3 for Exchange Server 2013, see Cumulative Update 3 for Microsoft Exchange Server 2013.
|Exchange 2013 cumulative updates include all the changes from previous cumulative updates. Cumulative updates are full builds of the product. You do not have to install the previous cumulative updates to get the latest features.|

- Rights Management connector The Microsoft Rights Management connector (RMS connector) is an optional application that helps you enhance data protection for your Exchange 2013 server by connecting to cloud-based Microsoft Rights Management services. Once you install the RMS connector, it provides continuous data protection throughout the lifespan of the information and because these services are customizable, you can define the level of protection you need. For example, you can limit email message access to specific users or set view-only rights for certain messages. For more information, see Rights Management connector.
- Groups enhancements The Exchange Admin Center (EAC) can now display up to 10,000 recipients in the Groups Select Members window. By default, up to 500 recipients are returned when you open the Select Members window, however, you can choose to list up to 10,000 recipients by clicking Get All Results beneath the recipient list. We now support browsing more than 500 recipients by using the scroll bar and we've also added enhanced search features to enable you to filter recipients that are displayed in the recipient list. You can filter by:
- Viewing the administrator audit log Instead of exporting the administrator audit log, which can take up to 24 hours to receive in an email message, you can now view administrator audit log entries in the EAC. To do this, go to Compliance Management > Auditing and click View the administrator audit log. Up to 1000 entries will be displayed on multiple pages. To narrow the search, you can specify a date range. For more information, see View the Administrator Audit Log.
