Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
If your Exchange Server 2003 messaging system is ever attacked, you know what’ll happen next: You’ll get blamed. Keep that from happening, with this concise guidebook. Here are step-by-step techniques and checklists for making sure you’ve covered all your bases with both Exchange 2003 and Outlook Web Access.

Walk through this book and follow its best practices for patch management, policies, mailbox and public permissions, and SMTP authentication and relaying. Check Outlook Web Access security in both front-end and back-end deployments and, of course, on the client. Set up spam filters, virus protection, and encryption. Finally, get your arms around the Exchange auditing process (including relevant Windows 2000/2003 event auditing). No security is perfect, but these techniques can get you a whole lot closer.
