In addition to email-enabled content capabilities, SharePoint 2007 has other strong integration points with Exchange 2007, including outbound alert forwarding and OWA inbox and calendar web parts. It is subsequently not a surprise when Exchange 2007 and SharePoint 2007 are often installed together in many environments.
- Use the Directory Management Service to automate the creation of AD contacts that correspond to email-enabled content on the SharePoint server.
- Restrict receiving email messages only from the IP addresses of Exchange Servers to avoid having your SharePoint Server used as a relay for spam.
- Replace public folders with SharePoint technologies wherever possible, as Microsoft is deprecating support for public folders in the near future.
- Incorporate SharePoint 2007 design concepts with Exchange 2007, so that both components can fit into an overall messaging and collaboration strategy.
