exchange whitepapers

is there anywhere on the net that i can get a paper outlining the basic concepts of exchange? i currently have 2 books - exchange server 2003 unleashed by sams and exchange server 2003 by tony redmond. these seem to assume a reader already understands the basic concepts of exchange. i'm looking for a technical overview of the exchange server arcitecture.
thanx

Check the Exchange help

Search the microsoft site and the MSDN site. Also look into the Platform SDK, there should be a lot of documentation on Exchange internals.

Try reading some of the messaging RFC's.

Read up on IIS and SMTP.

Hey, there is no easy way to messaging. Most of us came here by reading everything there is about exchange.
