I like to consider programming project to explore more about MS Exchange
What kind of minimum setup I need, I have Desktop PC doing pretty much nothing and a Laptop with VS2005 and NET2, which I use for programming C# application. Should I considering installating XP-PRO or Window 2000 or server (I have very limited budget),
The purpose of this is to understand how MS exchange work, level of library, how email operates with MS Exchange and so on.
What is the cheapest functional method (rather than linux solution, but open minded and willing to explore this anyway).
I willing to buy a book, any recommendation for starter and immediate.
Good webpage link, perhaps.
