There are great Exchange documentation sources on the internet. The Microsoft Exchange Team is probably the most active team in producing good technical documents. Also there are other dedicated sites who publish regular articles.
But there’s nothing like the smell of paper and a fat Exchange book looks good on any shelf. Unfortunately the price of books is not as cheap as it should be (at least for me, who lives in a country with one of the smallest buying power in Europe).
So, if I can’t buy the real thing, I’ll have to find alternative sources. Most of the authors of Exchange books offer sample chapters of their work. I decided to gather all the sample chapters available publicly. I call it Poor Man’s Library:
