Exchange Server Training recommendations RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm an entry level system administrator for a small mfg company that wants to manage email internally.  We currently use POP3 mail from our ISP, but have a growing need to support mobile devices (i.e. Blackberries, Windows Mobile phones, etc.).  We have started using Hosted Exchange services but would also like to use shared calendars and other features of MS Exchange Server.

    I am looking for recommendations for training - especially for administrating and troubleshooting MS Exchange Server once it is installed (We have an outside consultant to help with the initial installation).  Any feedback on other considerations for someone just starting with Exchange would also be appreciated.  

    Other specific questions:

    Does each mailbox require an open port in our firewall (currently mangaged through our ISP?)
    Is there still a need to purchase SPAM/AntiVirus filtering?
