The Exchange team today announced the availability of Update Rollup 5 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 3. RU5 is the latest rollup of customer fixes available for Exchange Server 2010. The release contains fixes for customer reported issues and previously released security bulletins.
The astute reader will note that I did not post about the release of Exchange 2010 SP3 RU4 since that was a security release and contained only the security update in addition to SP3 RU3.
Update: 17-3-2014 Please also see this article KB 2925273 Folder views are not updated when you arrange by categories in Outlook after you apply Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 3 Update Rollup 3 or Update Rollup 4
Update: 28-5-2014 The above issue contained in 2925273 is now corrected in Exchange 2010 SP3 RU6.
Exchange 2010 SP3 RU5 is not considered a security release as it contains no new previously unreleased security bulletin, but does contain all previous fixes. Exchange 2010 SP3 RU4 did include a security fix, which is present in RU5.
This is build 14.03.0181.006 of Exchange 2010, and KB2917508 has the full details for the release.

Now, before we rush off to download and install this there are a couple of items to mention!
- Test the update in your lab before installing in production. If in doubt test…
- If the Exchange server does not have Internet connectivity then this introduces significant delay in building the Native images for the .Net assemblies as the server is unable to get to http://crl.microsoft.com. To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
- On the Tools menu in Windows Internet Explorer, click Internet Options, and then click the Advanced tab.
- In the Security section, click to clear the Check for publisher's certificate revocation check box, and then click OK.
We recommend that you clear this security option in Internet Explorer only if the computer is in a tightly controlled environment. When setup is complete, click to select the Check for publisher’s certificate revocation check box again.
- Update Internet facing CAS servers first
- Backup any OWA customisations as they will be removed
- Test (yes technically this is in here for a second time but it is important!)
