1) sorry, don't quite understand what you're asking
2) what does 'enough Microsoft exchange's capability' mean?
3) are you asking what an exchange administrator should be able to do in relation to administering exchange?
If yes, the exchange administrator should be able to do everything. they administer the entire system.

4) no problem, sorry if I didn't understand your question correctly

1) the system administrator controls the entire thing. I cannot list individual actions as there are far too many.
2) no problem.
