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
