Let’s face some facts here. Exchange, although being the worldwide IT leader for decades now, has a reputation of being something of a beast to handle. Microsoft has been trying to change this, implementing many user friendly options in Exchange Server 2010. To highlight some of these changes, Exchange team members have tackled the top ten storage myths and tried to refute them, one by one. Were they successful? See you for yourself here. Happy reading!

Back in the those glorious days of 2006, Microsoft and TechNet released an extremely useful and informative written tutorial on the truths of transaction logging in Exchange Server. I find, personally, that admins often don’t grasp the subtleties of this portion of the Exchange program. With that in mind, I am posting a link to the original 2006 written tutorial. Yes, it’s old. Yes, it wasn’t originally intended for Exchange 2010 but most of the lessons contained therein are just as viable now as they were then. Thank me later. Click here to give it a gander.

Attend this webcast to learn about the new levels of storage flexibility in Exchange Server 2010, and find out the technical details to help you select the right storage solution for your Exchange Server 2010 environment.

Tony Redmond(No relation to the related Washington city) has produced a very informative article on how to get the most out of MailTips, that oft-overlooked resource embedded deep within Exchange Server 2010. Of course, MailTips is only available for users of both Exchange and Outlook. That is liable to change, however. Click here to check the article out and let us know what you think. Do you use MailTips? Have any anecdotes?

For instance, take this one, which purports to teach you how to configure, manage and troubleshoot your copy of the program. Sounds great! The catch? The classes cost in upwards of $2,200.  Still, it might be a good investment if you have teams of employees depending on you.

Occasionally, you might want to hide a mailbox so that it doesn’t appear in the global address list or other address lists. One reason for doing this is if you have administrative mailboxes that you use only for special purposes. No reason to let everyone in the whole network see everything in that network, right? So here is how you do it:

1. Open the Properties dialog box for the mailbox-enabled user account by double-clicking the user name in the Exchange Management Console.

2. On the General tab, select the Hide From Exchange Address Lists check box and then click OK.

How easy was that? Now get to hiding those mailboxes!
