We have recently installed Microsoft SBS 2003 on our server.  My job is to figure out the Exchange (this is our first experience with Exchange) aspect of it, for the basics of emailing and calendar sharing...I am SO CONFUSED!!!!  

I REALLY need a reference that will start with the BASICS of exchange.  To tell you HOW basic...I don't really get why we still have our POP email accounts, AND have added exchange accounts...I don't know if there's an email ADDRESS for each exchange account or what the heck is going on...

Anyway, I bought "Exchange Server 2003 Administrator's Pocket Consultant"...it's good, but I really need something a little more basic and explanatory...

Does anyone have any suggestions of books or websites I can use?

Thanks!

If you are not familiar with the basics of mail protocols, DNS, and AD, use Exchange only as an internal mail server to start with. It's almost PnP that way. You're user accounts are married to exchange accounts and are accessed through AD users & computers. You simply install Outlook and the Exchange Server service on the client computers and you have internal email and public folders. Now read, play, and read some more. It's not really complicated, though Microsoft makes a valiant effort to make it so. When you learn how to set up a virtual SMTP server and connector in exchange (http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/MF002.html), you can dispense with the POP accounts if you want to. Incidently, SBS has a built in POP connector that will grab email from internet accounts and distribute messages to the proper user account(s).
