Debunking Myths on Email and SharePoint Management

<updated> You can get an on demand copy here of the webinar and whitepaper: "Myths and Truths of Email Management with SharePoint"

 A few people have been asking me who should care.  The audience for this one is really IT, IT management, across SharePoint, Exchange, Public Folders, SMTP, Notes, Websphere or anywhere where responsibility falls in ownership, configuration, or planning around the following:

  • Managed Folders
  • Public Folders
  • AD (OU and contact objects)
  • Email Archiving
  • Email based application development
  • Calendaring
  • File Sharing
  • Storage

Updated: Post Event this wecast had over 2000 registrants and 800 participants.

Resources referred to and discussed in the presentation:

I refer to a number of resources in the deck, and I totally anticipate people looking for these resources.  First off, all of what you see and hear will be available on demand.  Obviously live is more fun.

What happens after I register?  You simply provide contact information and then you’ll get an email with a link to the site where the event will be hosted and will become live 15 minutes before it starts.

What happens if I don’t get the email?  Go back to the registration site try again and it will drop you onto the right page.  Worst case… If it doesn’t… email me and I’ll send you the link.

Can I register if I don’t belong to a corporation?

Can I register if I’m a Notes or Exchange person?  Yes, in fact those Exchange and Notes people should get relevant data out of this session.  If you’re thinking about migrating or using SharePoint, you should find value in the presentation.

Will I be able to interact or is this a one way webcast?  You will have a rich 45-55 minutes of content with 15-5 minutes of Q/A.  All questions will receive answers (or at least an attempt :).

A brand new whitepaper by me, discussing this topic will be available following the event!
