I am looking for a mini procedure manual of the things that an administrator of a site with 35 users can follow.

Want procedures of what to do when (for instance) a user leaves the company ... something like maybe redirect mail for a while before chopping off address.

Don't want it to be complicated, we have a simple business ... just the basics

Is there a link somewhere?

Thanks
Paul

I haven't seen anything for Exchange 2007 written like that. It is mainly bits and pieces picked up from everywhere else. I don't even think that any books cover that, because it is one person's opinion.

A user leaving for example, some people will redirect, others will forward, others will remove the SMTP address, while some will simply delete the mailbox and SMTP address so the email bounces.

Not really - nothing I have seen. There are plenty of guides on how to do things, but best practise kind of stuff I have never seen. You just sort of pick it up. With Exchange 2007 everyone is still learning.

As far as many people are concerned you shouldn't even have an Exchange server - you should have gone to a hosted Exchange provider.

You know, I had never even considered that proposition.  I presume it wouldn't even matter where in the world you are to use this sort of solution.  Do you think there would be some that have the Microsoft CRM package as well as a bundle?

The only consideration with hosted Exchange is location to an extent. You don't want to be accessing a service that is located on the other side of the ocean all day every day, but if you travel a lot internationally then it will not be so much of an issue. Microsoft are moving a lot of content to hosted providers, so I expect there are hosters who will provide CRM enabled solutions as well. I know there are some that are doing Sharepoint.
