    book on exchange

    Hi! My new job includes maintaining a network with an Exchange mail server. This is something I haven't studied or worked with before. What is the best book to begin with to learn maintenance, problem solving, and understanding this service? Thanks!

    I can't answer that, but you should start with http://www.slipstick.com/ for information about all things Outlook/Exchange.

    Slipstick is an excellent site. You also might want to check out Exchange and Outlook.

    Exchange has altered a bit between each of the last three incarnations. If your predecessor largely installed the version you have "straight out of the box" (without much further amendment), you may find that they will have missed a few basic lock-down procedures. For example, SMTP relaying is not turned off by default. If you have Exchange 2003, you might try looking at the (hefty) Exchange Server 2003 Unleashed by Rand Morimoto. HTH

    Re: book on exchange

    So don't continue to keep me in suspense! What book did you get ??


    "Managing Microsoft Exchange Server" Robichaux (v5.5)

    "Mastering Exchange Server 2003" Gerber
    "Exchange Server 2003 Pocket Consultant" Stanek
    "Microsoft Outlook Programming" Mosher

    That me, anyway.

    Re: book on exchange

    Didn't know anyone was still checking on this thread! I got Bill Boswell's "Learning Exchange Server 2003" but haven't spent too much time with it yet. Looks like it should be a real help. We just had some interesting problems with the system when the PDC lost some GPO's and when we attempted to restore things, Exchange found it had lost all authority and wouldn't start. My, but people can get cross when they don't have their email! Now the Exchange server is up but doesn't want to spit out its backup tape. It's all a good learning experience, right? Thanks for the reply. Russ
