More Management and Operations Specifications (MOS) for 70-282 (Microsoft Small Business Specialist Primer book excerpt)

howdy gang – I am the publisher of the above title and I like to hold a daily virtual book reading – u kwel with that? Here is a passge on e-mail and AD….rock on!

E-mail, Networking, and Internet Connectivity

Exchange Server 2003 allows for centralizing e-mail services, calendar, and resource scheduling at the customer site. The above-mentioned client is now using the same e-mail address for both internal and external e-mail communications. And even though this office already had a hardware firewall/Internet router, having the built-in firewall in SBS 2003 adds an extra level of protection.

Active Directory

Using Active Directory allowed the client to centralize security and authentication. Now users have to remember only one username and password for the entire network instead of using multiple usernames and passwords for different resources (e-mail, file shares, etc.). What we’re really talking about here is the single sign-on experience on the computer network. Even though you will never really have to touch Active Directory in SBS, this exam speaks also towards mid-size businesses, and therefore we will have to dig a little deeper into this later in this chapter.
