    Well, my department is moving to Dallas, about 3 hours north of me. I have a test/interview for today for a NT Admin position. The only thing I am worring about is Exchange. I haven't messed around with it at all. So, I picked up 2 books over the weekend, and have been craming. [​IMG] And, I thought I wasn't in school any more. [​IMG]
    If any of y'all have any tips for me in Exchange server pass them on. [​IMG]

    Good luck on the interview, Jeff. And now because you posted, you must come back and tell us what happened. [​IMG]

    I supervise a department that includes Exchange 5.5 administration for ~ 4000 users. I found the "Exchange Server Unleashed" book by Sams Publishing to be an excellent reference.

    I'd be happy to answer particular questions, but "Exchange for Dummies" would take up too much HTF storage !

    PS - I'm not an MCSE, so I can't help with test questions.

    Well, when the lady I set that up with said, "Some testing", she wasn't lieing. I felt like I took a mini SAT test. Now, keep in mind that I haven't been in school for about 10 years or so. they are asking me word problems about someting that will have NO effect on the job. ohh well, I guess I keep looking.

    Were the questions even remotely related to IT ? If not, could have been some kind of psychological profiling to make sure you won't go "Postal" on them. (no insult meant to the fine employees of the USPS).

    Don't give up hope !

    Good luck
