One of the best sources for Exchange information is the online TechNet library. However if you aren’t online or have a slow internet connection then this is the best substitute. These are quite literally copies of what you’ll find on the TechNet Library. These files are in CHM format and can be easily viewed offline at your leisure. A great reference for anyone working with Exchange. Check back regularly as they are updated often.
