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
