Key to a successful Exchange 2000 deployment project is to have spend adequate time planning and designing the future Active Directory and messaging environment as well as creating a well-thought-out migration plan. Each component within the planning and design phases should be completed in the order outlined within this chapter. Each of these steps collectively make up the critical path of the project.
The case studies highlighted at the end of the chapter were to illustrate the concepts presented in this chapter. They suggested how to apply the theory behind the technology to a real-life scenario, and how the size of the company does not matter as much as the complexity of use of administration delegation, messaging routing, and messaging system remote access.
