Unlike viruses, spam mail does not have a clear and cut signature. Anyone could send you an e-mail you wouldn't want to receive so determining which e-mail you definitely would not want to accept can be tricky. Various anti-spam packages exist. However, integrating them into your mail systems is not trivial. They have so many options that may help you prevent spam but can also cause a lot trouble and increase "where is my mail" type help desk calls. I hope to cover most aspects of combating spam here to make it easier for you to decide which solution is best for your needs.

E-mail fraud and spoofing is not difficult to do. This means anyone can send you an e-mail posing as someone else. Moreover, SMTP mail is typically sent in clear text and can be intercepted on the way by anyone using "sniffers", programs that record network activity. In this article you'll learn how to send and receive encrypted mail.

Microsoft recommends deploying only one Active Directory Forest whenever possible. There are many reasons for single forest deployment beginning with the administrative overhead through the need to synchronize the Global Address Lists of Exchange 2003 between two forests to provide a central GAL. But what if you have more than one forest with Exchange 2003 (through a merger or acquisition)? In this article I will explain in high level steps how to synchronize the GALs (Global Access Lists) of two Exchange 2003 organizations with the help of IIFP. This article should give you an overview about this complex process.
