Are you responsible for keeping your organization's e-mail system up and running? Are you the one they call in the middle of the night if things go wrong? If so, the Exchange 2000 Server Operations Guide is for you.

To manage Microsoft Exchange Server in a day-to-day environment, an operations team needs to perform a wide variety of procedures, including server monitoring, backup, verification of scheduled events, protection against attack, and user support. This guide includes instructions for the procedures along with steps for dealing with unresolved issues in a timely manner.

The content of the Operations Guide draws from the knowledge and best practice guidelines from Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS), Microsoft’s Internal Technical Support Group, and the Exchange Server Development Team.
