So, as part of my project, I need to include a large section of research on Exchange, its competitors/alternatives and its use in both large and small business. I'm currently scouring the library catalouges for papers, but I fear they will be thin on the ground, so a hunt through white papers may be next.
If anyone knows of any articles/papers on exchange, particularly its use or benefits to small business, I would appreciate it!

So I think i've settled on an idea for my degree project. I'm going to be building a control panel for Microsoft Exchanged, based on asp.net and powershell.
This is all assuming I can satisfy the research criteria part, I'm thinking of looking into usability and HCI, as this control panel will be designed for non-IT users (managers mainly) to use, and so usability will be a big factor. I'm also going to looking at process models and system lifecycle etc, but I guess everyones doing that.
I'm pretty excited about the idea, aleast teh development part, and even the design bit. Not so keen on the research!

The ability to RDP to a servers console is great, it stops you getting locked out of a server when you leave too many sessions open! For some reason MS have decided to change the command in RDP 6.1, which is included in XP sp3. So after much confusion as to why it kept telling me there were too many sessions, i discovered that the /console switch, has now changed to /admin. So the command is now
mstsc /v:serverIP /admin
