Microsoft Office Visio 2007 Pro – Exchange Server Add-In
Although Exchange Management tools are invaluable for managing, monitoring and administer networks, computers, services, and other system components it does not provide a graphical view of user mailbox details. Administrators have to sift through a tree view to view the members of the Distribution Group in an organizational unit and use embedded data to figure out the details.

Microsoft Management Console (MMC) hosts administrative tools that you can use to administer networks, computers, services, and other system components. Exchange Management Console and Exchange Management Shell are used to administer and configure specific settings for Mailbox servers and create and manage Mailbox objects. The Mailbox server role hosts mailbox databases, which contain users’ mailboxes. If you plan to host user mailboxes or public folders, or both, the Mailbox server role is required.

This Microsoft® Office Visio® 2007 Professional Add-In makes it easy for Exchange administrators to visualize, explore, and communicate complex information. Instead of viewing single user data, administrators can create data-connected Visio diagrams that display data at a glance and dramatically increase productivity. You can diagram a Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007 site topology, including sites, servers, and connections for an organization.

  • Select/De-select devices to be remotely erased
  • View the status of pending remote erase requests for each device
  • View a transaction log that indicates which administrators have issued remote erase commands, in addition to the devices those commands pertained to

The Microsoft Exchange Server ActiveSync Web Administration Tool is designed for use with Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2 and Exchange Server 2007 RTM and SP1 and compatible mobile devices.

Download Guidance
There are three versions of the Exchange Server ActiveSync Web Adminstration Tool that you may download depending on the version of Exchange deployed in your organization.
