Microsoft Exchange architecture anyone?

by Volker Weber

I need to prepare for a side by side description of Domino, Exchange and a bunch of open source mail servers. I am pretty fluent on how Domino works and my partner in crime knows about the open source servers. Our knowledge of Exchange however is very spotty. Documents and links would be very welcome.


Wouldn't Ed Brill have large amounts of comparative documents?

Yes, he might. And I will be asking him. However, there have to be other sources as well. :-)

Well take a look at this, this and this ... But tomorrow I will ask my team if they have something equivalent in the latest MS TechEd Files.

Ups, the first "this" was:

Marketing (not just Microsoft's) people make me laugh... The following list is from the links that Jim provided. Just substitute your mail server of choice and they can be reasonably well applied to the list below.

1.Increased productivity for IT staff.
2.Enhanced security.
3.Reduced cost.
4.Anywhere access.
5.Increased server availability and reliability.
6.Faster, easier upgrades and deployment.
7.Immediate increase in user productivity.
8.Improved manageability and health monitoring.
9.Capitalize on existing technology and infrastructure.
10.Collaborative application development.

I mentioned this to some folks on the Exchange team. Let me know if you don't hear from them in the next day or so.

Eric, I am not trying to bash Exchange. I know there can be serious issues, but this kind of text won't help me understand the architecture. The same holds true for Domino vs. Exchange papers from IBM or Exchange vs. Domino from MS.

Tony, you are absolutely right. Unfortunately most of the stuff I found so far falls into this category.

Barry, that is more than I hoped for. I am on receive. :-)

One of the best sites for MSExchange (in German).
