MessageOne Publishes Useful Book With Top Ten Rules to Ensure Exchange Availability

Three Microsoft Exchange Experts Share Their Secrets to Avoid Email Downtime

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 31, 2005 -- Today at the Microsoft Exchange Conference 2005, MessageOne, Inc. announced the exclusive availability of a new book that details the top ten essential rules to ensure that Microsoft Exchange-based email systems are always available -- no matter what. The three authors, Paul Robichaux, Chris Scharff, and Ben Winzenz, have all achieved the Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) honor signifying their high level of technical achievement for Microsoft Exchange.

MessageOne will provide free copies of the book, "The Microsoft MVP Guide to Exchange Availability," to attendees of the show visiting their booth. Additionally, interested parties may order a copy of the book at at no cost through the end of the year. After that time, the book will be available through MessageOne's web site for $12.95.

With Microsoft Exchange, the dominant messaging environment for enterprise email, achieving high availability can be a difficult task. Because of Exchange's reliance on a complex ecosystem of software, hardware, directory, storage, network and datacenter resources, any technical problems can lead to email downtime. With email serving as the most mission-critical application for today's businesses, the cost of email downtime can be significant to the operation of the enterprise and negatively impact the bottom line.
