First time poster. I recently inherited a 2007 exchange installation
from a tech who left a lot of loose ends untied. I ran a 2003
installation at a former job so I am not totally unfamiliar with
Exchange. I was troubleshooting something today when I realized the
ONLY way to resolve this and many other issues and/or configuration
changes is via the command line interface.
I read on some site the CLI boasts something like 385 commands.
Frankly, I do not want to learn a single one of them. In this economy
we have let a lot of staff go and those who remain are doing more work
than ever and wearing multiple hats. The very last thing I need is to
spend hours and hours mastering an arcane interface such as this.
Therefore, I am on the fence about outsourcing our email. Have the
management tools in 2010 improved to more closely match what was
available in 2003 in terms of functionality? Or does it look like
this is the future of Exchange going forward? Are there third party
tools that fill the gap?
Sorry if this territory is well-tread and thanks in advance.
