Overview

This course will help you prepare for Microsoft’s 365 certification exam MS-200: Planning and Configuring a Messaging Platform.

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 be guided through the initial deployment process and introduced to the messaging management tools. You will learn how to create and manage different types of recipients, and how to create and manage Exchange Server mailbox databases, which serve as storage locations for all messaging data. You will be introduced to messaging infrastructure organizational settings, such as how to manage authentication for your messaging environment, how to configure quotas for users in the organization, and how to configure organization sharing with federation.

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 purposes, you will also learn how to manage mobile devices. This course also describes planning and configuring message transport in an Exchange Server organization. You will learn how to plan, configure and manage transport services to provide efficient communication between your Exchange Servers, Exchange Online, and other mail servers on the Internet. Finally, you will learn how to troubleshoot transport services when issues occur in different scenarios so that you can provide your organization with a healthy and reliable messaging infrastructure.

Students will 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. The traditional approaches for high availability and disaster recovery are still present and exist primarily on the hardware layer, such as RAID systems for storage, block device replication, and archiving solutions using external storage. While Microsoft Exchange supports these traditional approaches, it also offers solutions that modernize high availability and disaster recovery by providing solutions directly integrated into the messaging systems. This includes such things as continuous replication and retention solutions that are built directly inside the message databases. This saves administrators a lot of time and effort maintaining different layers of foreign solutions on hardware and software.
