After my Exchange 2003 crash I thought I would have everything I needed in 1 book to install and configure my new server, but, unfortunately, although the book takes you through a "lab" configuration, there is no mention of how a production server might be set up. This is what I needed; I was not running a lab or a test server. I needed the real information and struggled with the set up because of the lack of information in this book.

In addition, there is little or no mention of configuring OWA. Not everyone wants to run Outlook Anywhere. So this book falls short there.

I have tried to use this book as a reference, but I'm not finding it very useful.

I also have liked Jim McBee's books in the past and that is why I got this book. I am very disappointed that I didn't find it more useful.

If you are looking at this book because you need to configure a new production server, buy this book as a last resort only!

This book is not very helpful for someone wanting to learn the product in depth or even just setting the product up, doing any type of design or architecture or configuration based on your design. Too high level, too much wasted information about history and past products. This is supposed to be a technical book about mastering the product not a history lesson. I really didn't like it and would like my money back but it took me a while to get through this book.

Format: Paperback
I read the first version of this book, I think it was Exchange Server 2000, and the newer editions have kept up with each new release of Exchange. Of course, Microsoft's documentation has also gotten better, but it still usually lacks the ability to bridge the gap between the complexity of the technology and what real people, even those of us with training, can quickly grasp when we need an immediate solution. I've looked at several Exchange books and I prefer McBee's conversational approach to writing and problem solving.

The best thing about the book is that it still serves as a great introduction to managing an Exchange organization, while also going into detail on newer technologies. It has lots of examples and a good balance of text to screen-captures. That really helps when you're trying to get others up-to-speed on the basic technology. The chapters on management tools and recipient administration (users, groups, etc...) provides the right amount of detail for quick reference and those who need training. The chapter on client access servers (CAS) is useful, especially on the area of setting up CAS servers during a migration. There is also an entire chapter on SharePoint integration. Just skimming these chapters can answer a lot of questions.

The chapter on roles based administration is good but was of limited use in my case, although I can see it being useful to an architect designing a system with many administrators with varying roles. The chapter on virtualization provides mostly broad recommendations. The chapter on e-mail archiving may be of use to those who aren't using a third party product.

I recently purchased this book to use as a tool for getting up to speed on the new Exchange platform. My organization is planning on a migration from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 later this year so I'm looking at accessing as many resources as possible. I picked up this book as soon as it was made available and have just now finished reading through it.

Overall I was fairly disappointed. Though the book does a good job job of introducing Exchange 2010 and going through all the new features and functionality, the chapter on migration from previous versions was severely lacking. The chapter only provides a few examples of the many possibilities of migrations paths and it only provides these examples from a high level perspective. The book and author does a poor job of walking the reader through a real-world migration, step by step, which, in my opinion, would have provided the most value to a IT technician looking for answers.

If your looking for history lessons on Exchange or want to be brought up to speed on the new features and basic administration of Exchange 2010, this book is adequate. However, if you are a seasoned Exchange vet looking for tools and specifc resources on migrating/upgrading from Exchange 2003, look elsewhere.

I think Jim wrote an excellent 2003 book very detailed and concised. I even purchasse the Exchange 2007 SP1 book which was ok but it lacked in the SCR area at least for me. I also purchased the Exchange 2010 which I think was rushed due to the lack of DAG. I must say I am very disappointed. But I am still a supporter.

Format: Paperback
As an Exchange 2010 trainer and consultant, I try to differentiate between the "wants" and the "needs". This book is a "need", a "must have" book for the Exchange professional. This book is written by two of the most recognizable authorities in the Exchange community, David Elfassy and Jim McBee. David is a regular on the Exchange teaching/speaking circuit, and Jim is well-known for his other Exchange books, and his work with Microsoft and along the Pacific rim and Washington, D.C.. Their presentation is clear and concise, which is difficult considering the scope and the number of changes presented in the Exchange 2010 product. If you are contemplating the move to Exchange 2010 (and you should), get this book. You won't regret it, and it will soon become one of the more dog-eared references on your shelf (if it actually makes it onto the shelf - you might just keep it on hand on your desk!). I bring my copy along to class everytime I teach or consult on Exchange 2010, and I recommend it to all of my students in the U.S. and abroad.
