My name is Naresh Sundararajan. I graduated with a Bachelors degree in CS from IIT, Madras in India in June ’92, and a Masters degree in CS from The Johns Hopkins university in Baltimore, MD, USA in December ’93. I worked as a summer intern at Microsoft in the summer of ’93, and joined as a full time employee in January ’94. I am currently a software architect, working on the next release of the Exchange server currently codenamed Exchange12. I am one of the few people that have the (infamous?) distinction of having worked on every release of Exchange server shipped ever! As a result I’ve seen a wide gamut of events in the Exchange team and product, the good, the bad and the ugly. I hope my blogs can shed light on some of the interesting history of Exchange.
