Exchange 2010 Recipient Icons

Microsoft Exchange has dozens of different icons. Context can tell you what most of them are, but when I was first learning Exchange, I frequently wished for an easy reference to help me keep them straight. I’m sure Microsoft must have one, but I haven’t seen it. I know I can’t be the only one who wanted this, so here you go.

This chart only covers recipients, not server roles, organization configuration, etc. 14 16 and counting!
