      Exchange Server 2010 support was about to run out on January 14, 2020 initially but Microsoft decided to extend support until October 13, 2020 of the same year.

      Microsoft provides the following reason for extending support of the Server product:

      Our commitment to meeting the evolving needs of our customers is as strong as ever, and we recognize discontinuing support for a product that has been as popular and reliable as Exchange Server 2010 can be an adjustment.

      It seems that Windows 7 isn’t “popular and reliable” as much as Exchange Server 2010.

      Any Exchange 2010 servers we’ve had in production for clients have been SBS 2011.  We’ve long been on Exchange 2013 or later for anything since.  And we’ve been working hard on squashing SBS 2011; it’s the crazy ex of operating systems. If you leave it, eventually wonder why you did because it integrated so many things, then use it again -you realize it’s toxic, and that too many things housed in one box at the same time creates a mass of infighting for resources, and a house of cards where if one subsystem goes bad, it may bring everything down.

      What with the extremely onerous requirements for Exchange 2019, I see even the MB in SMB going largely to Office 365 in time, once Exchange 2016’s lifecycle is over.
