Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Guide Version 0.6.0 Aug 15, 2002


This Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Guide is intended to provide handy reference information for readera and allow readers to find out how to perform various operations quickly. This guide was written based on my own need to understand enough about the Exchange System Manager controls to be able to configure logging so I could stop spammers and determine whether a domain user account was being used by unauthorized users to send mail. This guide will specify how to:

  • Turn relaying on or off.
  • Set various logging capabilities.

This guide is under construction and more will be added over time.
