One of the challenges of administering and supporting Microsoft® Outlook 2003 is that it stores settings in so many different places - in the Windows registry, as files in the user’s profile folders, and in the information store itself. Configuring Microsoft® Outlook 2003 pulls together in one volume the information that administrators in organizations of all sizes need to understand, deploy, and manage settings for Microsoft Outlook 2003. It covers configuration issues for environments where Microsoft Exchange is the mail server and also for those using IMAP4 or POP3. The book gives special attention to security issues, including recommended configuration of Outlook’s built-in security features and methods for locking down Outlook with Group Policy Objects and other techniques.
(PRIMARY): This book is aimed at network administrators, particularly those charged with deploying and maintaining a company’s installation of the Microsoft Outlook email client.
(SECONDARY): The secondary audience would include network help desks and Exchange Server trainers.
