Good books to learn about e-mail systems and messaging?

Hi, all:

Some (or most of you) probably won't believe this, but I'm an MCSE who doesn't know anything about the SERVER side of e-mail and messaging systems. I understand the basics of Web-hosted messaging services, such as IM and the difference between POP3 and IMAP, and I've been setting up and troubleshooting Outlook accounts for a half-decade now.

The problem is, when I got my MCSE back in 2000, I chose the IIS/TCP/IP route, and stayed away from the heavyweights (SQL Server, Exchange). As such, I ended up only installing and configuring servers that would be used for Web hosting, DNS, or file/print.

Times have changed, and I'd like to learn about Exchange Server 2007. I know about the MS Press books for the MCTS credential, and I'm setting up my lab right this very moment to dive into it. However, I'd like to get the basics (as I assume the old MS Press books for Exchange 5.x taught).

Any suggestions? Your thoughts and comments are much appreciated.
