A plethora of Exchange-related resources on the Internet can help you plan, deploy, manage, and troubleshoot Exchange 2003. In this chapter, I discussed the settings that have been deprecated from Exchange 2000, as well as some new settings for Exchange 2003 you can use to control certain aspects of its behavior.
In the sections on tools and resources, you learned where to find the latest information on Exchange 2003 and how to use Microsoft's new Exchange TDL. In addition, you learned about the free Exchange tools you can use to manage your Exchange infrastructure. There are several tools that can be used in a variety of situations, and all of the tools are worth checking out.
In addition to the Exchange product home page, Microsoft also has Exchange content on their TechNet Web site geared toward IT professionals and developer-related information on the MSDN Web site. In addition, Microsoft provides free peer-to-peer newsgroups that are available 24/7 and used by Exchange administrators all over the world. In addition, many Microsoft MVPs and some Microsoft employees regularly monitor these newsgroups, freely sharing their expertise and answering questions where they can. Finally, several third-party Web sites, blogs, newsfeeds, and other resources are provided by many other Exchange experts, including Microsoft employees who wrote Exchange.
