      This is unfair, really. Exchange is a multifunctional communications
      system. It isn't supposed to be learned in ten minutes. However, I
      do not know why authors find it so hard to say what Microsoft Exchange
      actually is.

      Part one of this book is intended to give us an overview. Chapter one
      is supposed to provide concepts, but only talks about interrelated
      boxes, not what the system actually does. Features are listed in
      chapter two, but the basics are not explained. Ironically, we learn
      more about the server through the list of clients presented in chapter
      three. Chapter four looks at the information you would want before
      installing Exchange, but for the large system described initially,
      much more planning would be needed.

      Part two discusses installation. Chapter five assumes that all will
      go well as you proceed through the dialogue boxes. A blizzard of
      configuration options are listed in chapter six. Having looked at all
      the other clients previously, chapter seven outlines Outlook 98 in a
      bit more detail. Chapter eight mentions gateways and connections to
      other servers. Since Internet mail is of greater interest, chapter
      nine goes into a little more detail on installation of the Internet
      Mail Service. The Mail Connector, for working with older MS Mail
      systems, is in chapter ten.

      Part three reviews administration. Chapter eleven presents the user
      management functions, primarily listing contact information. Public
      folders, for groupware functions, are described in chapter twelve.
      Directory replication setup is in chapter thirteen. Backup issues are
      discussed in chapter fourteen, but some important aspects are passed
      over rather quickly.

      Part four deals with trouble. Chapter fifteen lists some quick checks
      for common problems the client may encounter, while sixteen looks at
      the server.

      Part five talks about advanced tools. Chapter seventeen briefly
      describes some encryption key management functions. Exchange forms
      are covered in chapter eighteen. Some considerations for making your
      system more reliable are in chapter nineteen.

      Those who are familiar with Exchange may find this to be a handy short
      guide to functions they do not deal with often.
