Course outline

Reference : MS-200

Duration : 6 days

In this course you will learn about the architecture of the modern messaging infrastructure with Exchange Server and Exchange Online and how to deploy messaging in different scenarios and organizations.
You will also learn how Microsoft Exchange Server provides access to user mailboxes for many different clients. Because all messaging clients access Exchange Server mailboxes through client access services, we will examine how to plan, configure, and manage client access services in Exchange Server. Since using smartphones and tablets for messaging has become very popular, and because many smartphone users use their devices intensively for email, calendar, tasks, and other collaboration purpose.
Last, you’ll learn about the traditional and modern solutions for messaging high availability and disaster recovery. Messaging systems have become increasingly complex, given the abundance of new features that have been added the last few years, as well as the increased importance placed on availability and disaster recovery.
