Enough of my story, These articles that I mention above are the rich resources to learn the new enhancements that is introduced with Exchange Server 2013 and every Admin should know all these features and how it works, what benefits we get out of it, what is required from our end to make this features work etc. I read these topics when Exchange Server 2013 was introduced and amazed over the product and started to read more and explore and I wanted the share the same to my readers to join along with me in the journey.
