Real-world Exchange 2003 deployment and management for working administrators

This is your start-to-finish guide to getting Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 into production, then maximizing its reliability, performance, and business value. Bill Boswell writes for working administrators whose responsibilities now include Exchange Server 2003. He addresses every facet of Exchange from architecture to address lists, answering three key questions: How does it work? How do I get the most out of it? How do I fix it if it breaks?

Unlike some books, this one recognizes that you’re deploying Exchange in the context of a complex IT infrastructure. Boswell thoroughly discusses Exchange’s key dependencies and connections, and offers detailed process analyses¿complete with diagrams and step-by-step integration guidance. You’ll learn exactly what you need to know to make Exchange work seamlessly with Outlook--and with other email clients. Boswell even introduces third-party administration tools that work when Microsoft’s don’t.

Best of all, you can rely on this book. It was written by one of the world’s leading Exchange and Windows Server consultants, then reviewed by Microsoft Exchange MVPs, and approved by Microsoft itself for technical accuracy.
