Question

corporate email systems for small and large firms

by ATP-1 / May 26, 2013 12:33 PM PDT

I have some general questions for those who have installed corporate email systems, for small and large firms:

i) are corporate email systems for small firms vastly different from desktop systems?; if so, how?

ii) despite an individual possessing an individual email box(& password presumably), is it possible that these systems, large & small, can be set up so that all the incoming email goes to someone else first ie. private secretary, or departmental secretary?? would this mean that the secretary/departmental secretary has been granted administrator rights?

Thanks.

In short.

Many use Exchange Server and surpise, Lotus Notes.

I'm going to write that what you asked in part ii is covered in the courses your admin takes on said systems.

As I do not come from an IT background, and do not 'have' or employ an administrator, it makes understanding a little difficult, wouldn't you say?

Why yes, I would say that.

It's like the hospital director that wants to know why all those rooms, equipment is needed as well as systems. They tend to not do the actual surgery since that would be difficult.

Have you seen that many directors today seem to want to know how things work but when you pull them into the few month course on say Windows Exchange Server and more they back away?

I do not know what you want from me, or want me to do.

If question i) is a stumbling block, how about we try for question ii)?

Thanks.

Question 1 is easy.

Your corporate email systems have many other requirements. Such as Sarbanes Oxley retention requirements so you as the director of IT would have to use a server.

Your Question 2 is handled by the email server administrator to implement this.

Your questions are good but since I limit my replies to what fits in this space and can't condense a course into 3 paragraphs I keep it short.

Maybe you can explain more about your goals and why you don't want to take a course in company email servers such as I noted? Maybe you are seeing what I'm seeing today. That is, I see a new group of graduates that think that all these apps and servers have been simplified to the point you can point and click without any courses or programming.
