The following are Exchange resources from "25 Exchange 2003 Tips in 25 minutes." This content is excerpted from Scott Schnoll's book, "Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Distilled," brought to you by © (2004) Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Addison-Wesley Professional. Return to the main page for more tips on this topic.

The best place to start for Exchange-related content, information, tools, updates and so on is the Exchange Server Product Home Page at Here you can find links to anything and everything about Exchange 2003 (as well as Exchange 2000 and Exchange 5.5). You can download or request on CD a trial version of Exchange 2003, and unless Microsoft sends service packs to you on official CDs, this is the only place to obtain service packs for Exchange.

If you are outside the U.S., you may prefer to use one of the other Exchange Product home pages throughout the world; there are more than 30 of them, many of which are in local languages (e.g., Chinese, German, French, and so on). You can find the complete list at http://www.

Regardless of which site you choose, the content should be pretty much the same and just localized for the site being browsed. However, it's a good idea to keep tabs on the U.S. site because it is often updated first with the most recent content. In addition, the U.S. site is also a springboard to all other Exchange-related sites at Microsoft, including the Exchange Developer Center Web site, the Microsoft TechNet site for Exchange (which also includes the Exchange Technical Documentation Library), the Exchange Server 2003 Support Center, Exchange 2003 Events and Errors, the Exchange public newsgroups, and the Exchange Server Community.
