SBS hotfix - needs SP3?

beechfielder asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I am trying to install a hotfix from Microsoft to address a problem where external recipients who use graylisting do not always receive our mail.  I want to install the hotfix mentioned here http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;934709 but can only find versions for SP3

I have SP2 on both server and Exchange and cannot see that Microsoft have released SP3 yet

Not sure if I should just go ahead and install the hotfix, which I have requested and downloaded

Any feedback very welcome

Huh?  I see nothing in that article that refers to Service Pack 3 - you have to click the link at the top of the page to request the fix (it's not publicly available).


The reference to SP3 comes on the download page where the hotfix is requested, where it is the only option available
