Converting from MDAEMON to exchange
Posted on 2004-11-30
I am currently looking into changing over our mail server from MDAEMON to exchange. Can anybody tell me about the implications of this? I am aware that exchange is integrated with active directory. I am vaguely familiar with setting up accounts using exchange and as far as can remember the email address of the person (before the @), then became the domain log-in of the user. However, in our case our email address and log in is not related as mdaemon is not integrated with active directory.
So how will we be able to keep the same email addresses AND log-ins if we move over to Exchange?
Will we be able to use exchange to route mail to another office of ours? will their email address have to have the same domain name as us?
Can anybody give me a quick outline of the advantages of using exchange over any other mail server...
Also does anybody know where I can get comprehensive information on the functionalities of exchange, I need to do some research before I decide to go ahead.
Thanks a lot in advance!!
