Mark, even for you, the great Exchange guy, I cannot
do your research for you. Someone with your Exchange
skill level really should know better.

Old habits die hard. I know many of you are only angry
because for so long you have been doing it the wrong
way and it's tough to face up to that. Believe me, I
understand. 

Think about it: WHY would you give a hacker more
opportunities to log in to various known accounts,
i.e., GUEST (because of these newbies don't disable
that account), the Administrator (because newbies
don't rename the account), or having the server power
off because of the power profile isn't loaded when
logged out (unless changed, but newbies don't), the
IIS accounts, the ASPNet accounts, etc. etc. That's
just ridiculous to give hackers that easy opportunity.

I just did a google search and quickly found a "Five 
Security Steps.." by Microsoft. One of them mentioned,
"locking your computer..."

Google it, go to support.microsoft.com, to dogpile,
your local professional IT Auditor. You'll find more
information on it that you'll want to.
