5.0 out of 5 stars outsider with an inside track 5 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Tony Redmond, although he works for Compaq, might as well be a Microsoft man, his knowledge of the Exchange product is so detailed. This is very much not an MCSE exam book but rather traces the development goals of the Exchange 2000 team and how they were achieved. Given that the book was written before the final Exchange 2000 product release, and published three months before the release of the exam , it is very much a 'first to market ' effort. Redmond makes no attempt to cover the exam syllabus; instead focussing on the strategic issues of an Exchange 2000 upgrade or clean installation. The book is more suited to someone with experience of Exchange 5.5 than someone new to Exchange itself as there are extensive references to the difference between the two. The references to Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server are out of date compared to the RC1 version, which appeared after publication - but Redmond does make the point that the final functionality of any Microsoft product can differ significantly from the beta, so this is another example of his excellent insight.

5.0 out of 5 stars is exchange 2000 complex - NO! 10 Jan 2001
Once again Tony Redmond knowledge about exchange is very clear. Easy to understand with good examples and the big changes with smtp connectors, storage groups are well explained. The book is as good as exchange 2k itself. (it is the 2º copy of it I buy 'cause I gave the first to a friend - I regret myself)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on Exchange 2000 4 Dec 2000
By "xavtheron" - Published on Amazon.com
Tony Redmond has proved yet again that he it the worlds leading authority on Exchange. As with his previous two books he has gone into indepth detail of the kind that you just don't find in your average run of the mill MCSE how to guides.
What makes this book such interesting reading is that he has written from real world experience of planning and deploying Exchange 2000 in one of the worlds largest Exchange deployments (Compaq) and from the years he has spent testing Exchange 2000 internally at Compaq.
The technical detail is superb, but written in a no nonsense interesting style that many authors of computer books could learn from. If you want to really learn Exchange 2000 as opposed to just passing an MCP exam this is the book for you

4.0 out of 5 stars Most Good, Some Bad 24 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
In the Exchange community Mr. Redmond has developed a well-earned reputation as the leading source of expert information concerning the installation and upkeep of Exchange servers. This book will do nothing to damage this reputation. Even the kitchen sink is included in this monster tome.
That said, previous negative comments about this book deserve some acknowledgement. The book is almost too full of information. This is great for the experienced Exchange administrator, but can be a bit daunting for any novice. This was not the case with Tony's previous Exchange books.
As an experienced Exchange administrator, the previous `complaint' is not a problem. However, whoever did the proof reading/copy editing on this book should be fired. To call the typos and editorial problems numerous is an understatement, most laughably an entire bullet pointed paragraph on page 86 preceded with the all-caps comment of `TAKETHISONEOUT'. I can only assume that this paragraph is to be ignored. The quality of the proofing of this book is deplorable.
If you are planning to run Exchange 2000 this book is indispensable. It is not quite perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book with Good Detail on database design 24 Jan 2001
By Patrick A. Dant - Published on Amazon.com
Tony Redmond pulls together good material to understand the workings of Exchange 2000. His experience with disk assemblies, and optimizing the database are the best you will find. I recommend the book as a study reference as well as a source for optimizing your Exchange databases.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly editing and many mistakes 23 April 2002
By "kentakazawasf" - Published on Amazon.com
The author of this book is supposedly a renowned expert on Exchange server, but the author's abilities with Exchange did not carry through to the book. It is obvious that he has a lot of experience with Exchange, but he or his editors do a very poor job of organization information in to a readable format. I found numerous typographical errors and technical errors in the book and I found screen shots in the book that simply do not exist in the real product. I can only assume that the author wrote this book while the product was in the beta cycle and it is not based on the real version. This seems to be a very disappointing publishing industry trend these days.
If the publisher decides to release a second edition, I highly recommend that the book be completely reviewed and reorganized to better convey the information in it. There is some good information here littered in amoungest the trivia and the incorrect information, but it is hard to find. Also, the book binding is glued/assembled very badly; mine fell apart after only a week's use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent book from Tony 26 Jan 2001
By Neil - Published on Amazon.com
Well, Tony has come up trumps again. As a consultant within a company that's been designing, implementing and supporting Exchange since version 4, we've always had Tony's current book on our desks.
One of the biggest challenges with the whole Windows/Exchange 2000 process is knowing where to start with the mountain of new information, and applying that new information into the planning process. Make no mistake about it, this book is for those who need to plan, design and implement Exchange 2000. And in reading Tony's book, you'll be in an excellent position to deliver a reliable and scalable Exchange 2000 messaging/collaboration solution.
