Microsoft Exchange is a big, complicated application; it requires more disk storage than Windows NT Server and has several hundred configuration property pages and dialogs. But it is also a very powerful and flexible messaging system. However, knowing that it can be made to do something and understanding how to do it are often worlds apart. Managing Microsoft Exchange Server bridges this gap.This book is a no-nonsense, practical guide to planning, installing, managing, maintaining, and troubleshooting Exchange networks. Targeted at medium-sized installations and up, Managing Microsoft Exchange Server addresses the difficult problems these users face: Internet integration, storage management, cost of ownership, system security, and performance management. It goes beyond the basics to provide real hands-on advice about what you need to know after you have your first site up-and-running and are facing issues of growth, optimization, or recovery planning. Managing Microsoft Exchange Server comprehensively explains how Exchange works, what it can do, and how you can make it work for you.
