Microsoft Exchange Server in a Nutshell Review

Comments about oreilly Microsoft Exchange Server in a Nutshell:

As a fan of O'Reilly's "Windows NT in a Nutshell," I've been waiting for this book. Like the other Nutshell manuals, it encapsulates lots of hard-to-find information in one place. If you're ooking for a step-by-step guide to implementing Exchange Server, however, you might want a different book (I strongly recommend Tony Redmond's text); this book is best suited for administrators who need a quick reference. However, anyone who wants to learn more about how Exchange Server operates will benefit from reading this book.
