Learning Exchange Server 2003 (Microsoft Windows Server System Series) 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Email is one of the core functionalities of a computer network. If those computers are running Microsoft operating systems, then Exchange Server 2003 often handles the mail. Due to the crucial nature of email, the book shows how Microsoft has built up a lot of capabilities into it. The book assumes that you are the sysadmin delegated to setting up and running it. So there are lengthy but necessary explanations about the message formats. In the header and body. You can see the difference between bodies written in plain text, HTML or Rich Text Format. Though the latter is mostly supported only by Microsoft, and has gained relatively little traction elsewhere. Despite what the book says about RTF, you can often safely ignore it. Just concentrate on understanding the other two. You will probably have to maintain distribution lists of your local users. The book gives elaborate GUIs built to simplify this work. Much fancier than editing files like /etc/aliases under unix. The book also teaches a lot about how SMTP is handled by ES2003. Plus, it gives a good discussion about current antispam and antivirus filters. The level of detail about the antispam filters is concise and understandable, and is a fair summary of the main methods currently deployed.
