Exchange 2000 and pop mail
Posted on 2003-03-20
I have a small buisness, and I'm looking to implement MS Exchange 2000 as my email service. Currently, my MS Small Buisness Server 2000 only manages my users, file serves (using folder redirection - very cool) and my database. Exchange is installed, but not used for anything.
Right now, my users all use POP3 and MS Outlook on their own workstations. Only one is mobile, and they do not need to use email when they are not directly connected to my network. In a perfect world, I'd like all mail to be handled, delivered, and stored on the server, and all the workstations do is read it.
I use a simple cable modem as my internet connection, DSL or better is not available in my area, and have no strong emotional attachment to my web hosting company...if I need a particular feature I can switch to someone who supports it.
My IT budget is very small. Like, none. What do I need to do, keeping costs as low as possible, do implement Exchange?
