Getting a SAN certificate for Exchange 2007

Exchange 2007 uses SAN certificates, which allow you to mix several different server names in a single certificate. Generating a certificate can be a problem, as the PowerShell command needed to generate the certificate signing request can be long, and unwieldy – and it’s easy enough to make a mistake when typing in part of a long command.

Set up Exchange anti-spam features

Move anti-spam settings from one server to another with the Exchange 2007 Anti Spam Migration tool, from Microsoft www.microsoft.com/do.. Run it on the SBS 2003 system to create a PowerShell script that you can run on your Exchange 2007 server to import the appropriate settings.

Selling White Label Services

Reselling services represent a significant – and growing – part of the business for many IT consultants. Margins on IT hardware, and to a lesser extent, software, have fallen steadily. The fees that can be charged for higher-value work, such as code customisation and application testing, have also come under pressure, not least because of competition from suppliers in markets such as India or Eastern Europe and Russia.
