Actually, if you are running exchange 2008 or later then you have to use powershell - the wmi hooks for vbscript just don't exist for later versions of exchange. You can get powershell for XP but you have to be on SP3. Powershell does have its quirks though, the one that particularly catches me is trying to reference component of an object in an argument list. Doing a GUI is an exercise in patience. If you have done some perl programming then you should be reasonably comfortable with Powershell.
