Product Description

Amazon Review

With the release of a major upgrade to any large software system comes the challenge of how to implement and integrate its features with the rest of the environment. As part of Microsoft's BackOffice suite since its introduction in 1996, Exchange 2000 Server represents version 6.0 of their powerful messaging and groupware product. With it comes even closer integration with the Windows operating system.

Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Administrator's Companion covers the implementation of Exchange Server from initial strategy and planning through to deployment. Written in a straightforward style, this well-designed hardback reference provides an excellent overview for administrators needing to deploy Exchange 2000 Server in any size of organisation.

The book begins with an outline of the wealth of new features of Exchange 2000 including administrative groups, routing groups and policies. Section two is devoted to planning your information infrastructure and laying the good foundations fundamental to the smooth operation of any network. Following sections deal with the issues of deployment, installation of clients and maintenance, plus a section providing a more detailed description of the new features outlined earlier. In this section, individual chapters are devoted to the Chat Service, Instant Messaging, clustering, security and connecting to other messaging systems.

The authors admit that no one-volume reference can adequately cover all of the features of such an extensive system. However, along with the accompanying CD, this book should prove to be a valuable addition to any Network Administrator's library. --Peter Lunn

This book is an excellent resource to introduce you to the basics of Exchange 2000 Server. All or Exchange Server's features are introduced and carefully explained. It also presents a good overview of the innards of Exchange 2000 Server, and how it differs from Exchange 5.5.
If you're new to Exchange 2000, or indeed to Exchange in general, then this book is a must-buy. Note that the book covers only the Server and, to a lesser extent, the Enterprise Server editions. Apart from a few sentences, Conferencing Server is not covered here.

Fantastic ! 9 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have really enjoyed this book, but I think those new to Exchange and messaging systems might find it overwhelming. It does assume a general knowledge of Exchange Server 5.5 and Windows 2000. I would definitely recommend reading a book on Windows 2000/Active Directory first as this knowledge is crucial to the understanding of Exchange 2000. However, those familiar with Exchange 5.5 and Win2K will find this book extremely valuable. Even newcomers to Exchange will find the detailed hands on descriptions of daily administration tasks very helpful.
I've been specializing in Exchange Server 5.x deployments for about two years now and this book was just what I needed to get me up to speed fast with Exchange Server 2000. The book is big, but it's organized quite well so it's easy for you to just read the chapters about the topics you want whenever you like. It's also written very well, easy to read and won't put you to sleep like some other Microsoft offerings. I just got started reading it today and couldn't put it down. I ended up knocking off over 300 pages by days end ; also having successfully installed Exchange 2000 on my home network, configured Internet Mail ( SMTP, POP3 and OWA ), Recipients and Recipient Policies, Storage Groups, Public Folders,etc,etc. Tommorrow, I hope to finish the chapters on Security, Disaster Recovery, Clustering, Routing Groups and Connectors. I think by then I will be ready for most any Exchange 2000 deployment !

Excellent for Beginners or Advanced users 18 Sept. 2000
By Roland Kissoon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Superb book that deals with both practical aspects ( planning, installation, security etc.), and concepts. It is written in a very detailed manner, which at first was quite frustrating to read, but is very useful for sections that I was unfamiliar with.This is an excellent guide for people that are familiar with Exchange 5.X. I was particularly impressed with the sections on client installations and selection. I learnt a lot of stuff that I did not even know were possible with MS Exchange. Good buy!!

Great Book! 7 Sept. 2000
By Mike Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I always worry about books that come out so soon after (or even before) the actual product, but this book is great! It provides a good overview of the Exchange 2000 architecture and its integration with Windows 2000. The book also provides hands-on knowhow on everything from installation to configuring advanced security and performance tuning. I'd recommend it to anyone involved with Exchange 2000.

Very Good for Beginners 11 Sept. 2001
By Blue Bob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Although I found the book to be well written and generally accurate, in times of need it did not supply any answers or ideas for my administration problems. For someone wanting to learn the basics of administering Exchange 2000, this is a good choice. When it comes to the "nitty-gritty" detail, like how to block incoming or outgoing E-Mails for selected users, or configuring an Exchange Server for multiple E-Mail domains, then it falls short of my needs. I would expect an administrator's companion to cover just about everything that can be configured in Exchange 2000 ! This book doesn't supply that need.
