Microsoft Exchange

By lavon_699 ·
I'm presently hosting websites for some small businesses. They are currently using Hotmail/yahoo to receive their email. I want to provide email service for my customers. Can Microsoft Exchange be used as an internet email server? I would like the acct's to be setup online through a forms page and Exchange creates the acct. I was told I need to purchase an email server software that does all that and because Exchange can't. If you can provide a book with information on how to setup exchange as an internet email server I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

Exchange 2000 can. All acounts are kept in Active Directory along with Exchange objects. You can manipulate active directory using VB Script, you can search Active directory using LDAP.

As long as you 'feel' comfortable creating a web page that is VB Script based you should be able to create acounts in the Active Directory, assign it to a specific server/datastore, assign it to specific groups, etc.

Now as far as any good books. There are several on VBScript and how to program in VBScript, you may also want to visit the VBScript site at Microsoft for ideas ( go to the Script center.

For programming Exchange there are several also on teh market depending on what you are looking for: look for books written by Thomas Rizzo.

Search for books on Windows Scripting, VBScript, Exchange 2000 - I'm sure you'll find the book or books that will help you out.

Good luck.
