A. Microsoft recently released this tool, which is available for download at Microsoft Download site and which you can use to scan an Exchange Server organization and compare it with Microsoft's best practices. The tool reports suboptimal configuration settings, provides an overview of your Exchange Server system's health, and helps fix specific problems. Exchange Server Best Practices Analyzer works on Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange 2000 Server systems (and also on Exchange Server 5.5 systems that are part of a mixed-mode Exchange organization). I recommend that you check out a Microsoft TechNet Webcast about how to get the most from the tool.
