* + E12 = UM Powerhouse?

Hello all.

I’m new to this forum and Asterisk. I’ve been reviewing * for a couple of weeks and will be installing it as our company’s PBX with 99% certainty. So far, I have nothing but love for the product.

I was reading through Redmond magazine yesterday, and came across an article discussing the new features of Exchange 2007 (a.k.a. E12), one of which being Unified Messaging (UM). Asterisk + Exchange seems like a killer application bundle, as I’ve caught wind that Asterisk can store VM to a UM service, but I can’t find any good documentation and/or instructions on how to make that happen. I’ve searched here, and only found anecdotal evidence of the fact.

Can anyone supply some links and or support to help me fill out my knowledge a little better?

In case anyone is curious, the article is online at http://mcpmag.com/columns/article.asp?EditorialsID=1313

Thanks in advance!
