Exchange Sever

Dear Experts,

Q1. What is the exact  difference between exchange 2013 CU1 and exchange CU2  Is there any CU has released by Microsoft?
Q2. What is difference between send and received connector

Flag of United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland image shows the CU's for Exchange 2013. Think of them as service packs, they are cumulative so you don't need to install them all just the one you wish to go to. I recommend CU9 which is the latest release

Basically -
Send connector - Relays mail out of your organization to other mail severs via DNS lookup or direct to a smart host (eg messagelabs)
Receive connector - Accepts mail into your organization.
A little more on receive connectors as there are a few installed by default -

i wouldn't refer to it as a service pack; the support model isn't the same as a service pack
there is service pack 1 which is the same as CU4
as stated, CU10 is the latest which was released a few days ago
better off doing a fresh install using CU10.
CU9 will no longer be supported as of december 14 (3 months after the CU10 release)
