Exchange Books

By mpd881 ·
I am just about to setup a new Exchange 2003 server and have no experience with it. It will be a simple setup, with just 100 users or so useing email and shared calendars to start with. I was just wondering people's opinions on which book gives the best bang for the buck. I briefly looked through four at our local Barnes and Noble, but have no idea which one is best. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

My Favs

by jbaker In reply to Exchange Books

My two favorites are:

Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 by Tony Redmond (recognized as THE authority on Exchange). This book goes into great detail about everything Exchange.


CYA: Securing Exchange Server 2003 and Outlook Web Access by Henrick Walther and Patrick Santry. This is a fairly small book, but covers Excahnge security and configuration issues nicely.

Thank you for your ideas

I do believe I saw that book in the store. Also, it is a great idea to get the security book also.

I can email you some very good e-books I have

by Why Me Worry? In reply to Exchange Books

I too am in the same boat as you are because the company I work for is migrating from Novell Netware/GroupWise to Microsoft Windows 2003/Exchange 2003. I've been reading up about it, but it's just too much for me to absord all at once in a short amount of time. Some of it I can relate to because I am already a CNE, but a lot of it is new stuff and very different from the way I understand networking in the Novell world. Microsoft seems to overcomplicate the concept of directory services with AD if you ask me. I'm not a huge fan of Microsoft, but I don't have much of a choice if I am to keep my job and remain employable. Reality bites!

That would be great!

If you could send those ebooks to me that would be great. I am looking at starting in about a month or so (great timing, middle of summer, so that if something goes wrong, I get to stay indoors and fix it....). I agree with you. Microsoft overcomplicates just about everything. Good luck on your migration.
