We just got an exchange server and I need to get all of our group up
to speed on how to use it to collaborate.  I don’t care about the
email part of it at all.
We don’t have any free time to read books, or attend classes.  We are
all techs and just need a quickstart.
Any idea where I can hire someone to be able to walk us through some
collaboration scenarios, and answer our questions, and tell us how
other teams use this tool.  I want to do this via phone and/or VNC
(screen sharing).  Email is too slow.  In person would be OK, if they
were in San Diego.  I was hoping to pay $40/hour.
Here are the specs I had for what we want to learn.   2 of our group
will be using Outlook 2001 for Mac, and the other will use Outlook XP
for windows:
We need someone that has lived in an enterprise setting and used
outlook to collaborate with coworkers.
We don’t care about any technical stuff, or even any email stuff.   
We need someone that spent their days in the program and wouldn’t be
able to function in the office w/o it.   Some of the items are:
advanced contact lists, assigning tasks and monitoring them,
delegating (all the ins and outs of it), etc.

Hello sherpaj-ga let's try once again.
I posted your request on the San Diego Exchange Server user group There are people out
there willing to help you since I received three replies. Google
Answers policy doesn't allow me to provide their contact information
here. I also am not allowed to contact you directly outside this
Soooo unless somebody comes up with a better idea I suggest that you
re-post the request on the user group mailing list maybe referring to
my posting and you will probably receive the same three answers.
You can find the San Diego Exchange User group at
To join, send an email to and then you
can post.

If everything should fail somebody from the user group suggested 
to use ' redsystems  They allow you to  "call
in" at a special rate that doesn't break the bank...and they vpn into
your system and do just what you're about."

Hope all this helps, I wish I could do more ....

PS... My initial estimate is that this looks like a 2-4 hour job!

We don't need to  do any setup, the exchange server is already all
setup, we just have very detailed questions about how to best use
specific groupware features of outlook xp, in an exchange environment.
