About subject: exchange
Titanium, Platinum, Touchdown, Merlin, Osmium, Mercury, Kodiac. Do these words mean anything to you? Well, if not, they should, since they are all code names of the several Exchange releases.
Exchange Server was born in March of 1996, as a replacement of Microsoft’s previous messaging solution, Microsoft Mail. Although I had the opportunity to work with Microsoft Mail, my personal experience with Exchange began with version 5.0 (yeah, I skipped 4.0). I must say that I enjoyed this fine product since the first moment, so it’s not a surprise that I decided to blog about it.
So, what can you expect from this blog? Everything about Exchange and messaging in general, news, technical articles, personal experiences and the new trends: mobility, unified messaging and PowerShell.
This blog contains my personal experiences and tips any email administrator should know in order to keep Exchange Server functioning as one of the best email messaging solutions on the market today.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show ;-)
