    2. Neither post installation PF DBs are created and are replaced by public folder mailboxes
    3. There was no stm files in exchange 2007 but only 2003
    Incomplete, RPC/TCP = MAPI – 135 is no more there
    Routing group anyway was discontinued since Exchange 2007
    12. Confusing and not correct
    13. Not explained properly
    14. HUB role is split and shared between CAS/MBX servers
    17. The purpose is beyond what you mentioned – incomplete
    18. The term what you use forwarder is incorrect
    19. Actual .EDB file explanation is missing

    I could not read more as it seemed all incomplete and improper explanation and hence request you to remove from the gallery as well as this blog as people who don’t know will be misguided.

    Going onwards what you prepare double check with your seniors and friends.

    • Thanks Charles for your valuable feedback. Updated the article to make it more explanatory. Added the technet artcle url as reference for each question this will helps to reduce the search and understand those who read to have the answer in more detail. Most of the answer content is taken from the technet article to provide the exact meaning. Although it ‘s available in the internet and technet artcles but this document makes for them to get everything into single document with short notes and easy for your interview preparation on having it handy. Thanks again for providing the feedback on my gallery too.

      You can drop me an email @ if you still need to provide more suggestion on the document to make it better
