Hi, I saw that there will be no free license to deploy Exchange 2019 on prem for hybrid environments.  Is this a final decision?  What's going to happen when Exchange 2016 is end of life?

Hi Adam, that is a final decision. You can read more about what happens when 2016 reaches end of support here - https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/exchange-team-blog/exchange-server-2016-and-the-end-of-mainst...
