My name is Evan Dodds and I am a Program Manager in the Exchange Datacenter team. I have been with Microsoft for about 7 years, with the first 4+ in Charlotte, NC and now in Redmond, WA. Previous to my Program Manager assignment, I have been a support engineer, a technical support lead, a beta-support engineer for both Exchange 2000 SP3 and Exchange 2003 SP1, and a support escalation engineer, helping our customers with their most critical issues and escalations.
My principle areas of Exchange expertise are the PowerShell, Exchange operational management, and Setup/Deployment. In my past life in Support, Exchange Clustering was a particular interest of mine and I wrote, cowrote, or technically reviewed several whitepapers and numerous KB articles on this subject. I've also presented several Technet webcasts and am a contributor to the Microsoft.Public.* Newsgroups.
My current assignment is as a Program Manager on the Exchange Datacenter team, where I contribute to the design of future versions of the Exchange Server product from a system management perspective. My primary ownership area is Exchange/PowerShell integration, which is why so many of my blog posts recently are around the topic of PowerShell solutions to Exchange management activities. Leading up to Exchange 2007 release, I owned much of the recipient managment model for Exchange 2007, among other things, which is a big part of why I have also written up so many blog posts here at at EHLO on this topic.
Please have a look at my blog (http://blogs.technet.com/evand/) where I have archived a bunch of posts on Exchange Clustering and Exchange 2003 SP1 issues from the past few years of posting. I've recently resuming my blogging - now on Exchange 2007 Admin and PowerShell topics - both at the Exchange Team blog and also directly on my blog.
