    Mailbox auditing seems like a pretty good thing to have in an email product, if only to answer the eternal question of who deleted a particular message from the mailbox. Exchange 2010 was the first version of the product to include mailbox auditing.

    Active Directory and Exchange - too tight for a rename 2

    1999 seems such a long time ago now, but that's when many of us first faced the need to deploy Active Directory (AD).
