Let's start off by talking about what we're going to cover here in this Exchange 2000 Video Series. First of all I'm going to start you off with just a little bit of Exchange history. Now this is not exactly exciting things if you've been around Exchange for a while, but for those of you who are new to Exchange it'll kind of get you oriented and make you look knowledgeable when you're talking to other people. After that we're going to talk about the different versions of Exchange 2000 that are available now. I will do a video real quickly talking about the differences that are involved with Windows Server 2008. Windows Server 2008 is a product that's relatively new. There are a lot of really new different stuff about this product that you need to be aware of and so if you're going to involve Exchange in a Server 2008 installation I'm going to point you to some resources to take care of that. Then, we'll talk about what's new in Exchange 2007, some of the cool things. We'll jump from that into Active Directory and Exchange, cover all those basics on Active Directory and Exchange that have been out there for a lot of years and still are out there. We'll touch on some of the Exchange Server Roles that have been introduced now, then we'll kind of delve into those Server Roles individually, do a little diagram on it, talk about the individual Server Roles, what they do, what you can expect from them, and some general configuration things. As we go through this course now, you're going to notice it's really hard and I know when people get these courses they like to see a ton of hands-on stuff in the management consoles and stuff and I do that as much as I can, but so much of Exchange is getting your head wrapped around the design and getting your head wrapped around the functionalities in it. Unfortunately, in some of the cases it's just better to talk you through some of these PowerPoints, and so I hope you understand that. But when we get to installing Exchange it's really where we really start to drill in on some real world hands-on stuff because I'm going to do an Exchange installation and you're going to watch it totally, start to finish, to see how it works and what happens. That'll take three or four videos here. We'll talk about Active Directory preparation, those services Exchange runs on, how to secure an installation, how to complete it. We'll talk about the Administration Tools. There's some new cool stuff with that with a management shell, then we'll drill into Mailbox Servers and we'll talk about some things that are unique to Mailbox Servers and some things you're going to have to watch for as you're dealing with those. The different storage groups, storage group options, public folders in Exchange 2007 and how that's starting to change and where it's headed, so there are a lot of things that we're going to talk about there. Managing Recipients, once you get this thing up and running you've got to deal with your Mailboxes and your Recipients. We'll talk about creating Mailboxes, moving them, distribution groups, dynamic distribution groups. When we get to Addresses and Lists you're going to have to have different lists and we'll talk about address policies and stuff. The Client Access Servers Ð we'll talk about how important those are and what it's going to take to get those things running; some things you need to watch for. Then a real important one, we'll talk about Message Transport. How messages move around in Exchange 2007 and this is different from previous versions and so we'll talk about that. High Availability Ð Microsoft's introduced some really, really cool stuff in high availability. We'll go through every one of those, talk about what you can do with those and how they help you. You'll like that stuff. Backup and Restore Ð we'll talk about some of the Backup options that you have here and some of the things that you can do in that area. And then we'll finish up by talking about maintaining Exchange 2000, how to manage your benchmarks, where to get that information, and so forth. So, we're going to cover a lot of information and as always, never know how much to put in, how much to leave out. I wish you could see my notes and my outline, how it started and how it finally ended up, and I realize that I'm wandering down a trail and I'm going to confuse everybody, and I stop and I go back, and then I watch some other videos and realize I didn't really go deep enough there and so I redo them, and, so anyway, a lot of information's going to be covered here. This will give you a really good introduction in understanding to Exchange 2007, how it's thinking, how it's working, and when you finish this you're going to have a lot more questions, but they're going to be a lot more, I guess, intelligent questions, maybe, I hope; more intimidating questions for the nerds out there, so anyway, I hope you enjoy this. It's going to cover a lot of stuff.
