Technet documentation is stellar. Some is still being written for 2010, but
I think the information for Exchange is the best across all products.
Also - download Exchange 2010 and use it as a trial in a lab and play with

I've been looking for books, too, and an Exchange 2010 class I'm
signed up for lists Stanek's "Administrator's Pocket Consultant" as
recommended reading (this is a Microsoft class). Can you tell us more
about the "more than one MS KB article publishd to correct it"?

Google would be your friend on that one. Not big ones but they were
fundamental ones that caused quite a bit of confusion a few years ago.
Bill's more the writer and has been for several years, just like
Minasi. Jim McBee and others are still at the coal face and have a
better take on things.

"a few years ago"? Are we talking about the Exchange 2010 version or
a previous version? I did a Google search and came up empty as far as
corrections. Also, the Micorosoft Learning/Microsoft Press Book
Support page said to enter the ISBN number of the book on the MS
Knowledgebase to get a listing of articles that would have been
published as corrections, and that came up empty as well.
