Another hint: Exchange is a really big PITA for its storage. Backups and 
reimports are really slow and buggy. Corruptions on the 
supermega-storage-file-containing-all-mailboxes causes long downtimes.

It's not only a point&click system.
It's a point&hope&click&damn approach since its installation.

Good luck!
