  • Good books for introduction / setup?

    Hi all, new to the forum.. I'm looking at setting an exchange 2007 box for us here however before I do I would like a bit of background / understanding and also setup assistance. Could you recommend a couple of good books for this (for a new user - not admin'd exchange before or setup)

    Looking for a couple of books to read over the coming holidays

    Thanks in advance,

    Welcome CraigR,

    Not sure on books myself but sites like, and are all full of useful information. You would do well to setup a test environment in VM or similar so you can play with it too.

    Please read this before you post:

      I have to say Mastering Exchange 2007 by Jim McBee et al.

      That is because I wrote three chapters of it.

        Thanks for that. I'll get a book on order from Amazon. I'm from a Linux background so exchange is a bit new - although have dabbled with Windows server its far from what i'm used to!

        I'll be back with more questions i'm sure

          Not a book and I have yet to watch it but if it is anything like the Exchange 2003 Lab it will be brilliant. They also have a Lab on PowerShell as well that should be quite interesting.
