Greetings! I am a new technical writer on the Forefront Server Protection UA team. I wanted to make you aware of some new user documentation our team recently made available for Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server (FPE).

If you are looking for the big picture on how FPE protects your Exchange servers and how to develop an effective scanning strategy, look no further. The new Protecting your Exchange servers documentation in the Planning and Architecture section gives you the parameters to understand best practices for scanning malware without compromising your server load performance levels.

Because FPE can be deployed and configured in a variety of ways depending on the topology of the Exchange organization, the most effective route for your own deployment needs to include good planning strategies around what needs to be scanned and on which servers in your specific architecture. Before you dive into deployment and operation detail, check out this section first to help you make good configuration decisions.

Planning and architecture guidelines and strategy is now available for the new release of Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server (FPE) and is available here.
