Overview

A highly portable, easily digestible road-map to configuring, maintaining and troubleshooting essential Exchange Server 2003 features. The book is organized around the 11 "MMCs" (Microsoft Management Consoles) that contain the configuration menus for the essential features. The options within each menu are explained clearly, potential problems are identified up-front, and configurations are subsequently presented in the aptly named "By the Book" section for that MMC. Readers will also appreciate the "Reality Check" sidebars throughout, which present valuable cost/benefit analyses of situations where there is no single "right" answer.

* Walks the reader through step-by-step configurations to assure they have been thorough and responsible in their work
• Clearly identifies those features of Exchange Server 2003 that represent the highest risk factors for attacks, performance degradation and service failures
• CYA comes right out and says what most IT Professionals are already thinking

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.
