Hi,
I have a local network with a windows 2003 server with active directory.
Is there a way for users in the AD to use a web based  email in internet explorer to send and receive local emails, without additional software? if not which software can I use?

SMTP and POP3 comes with windows 2003 and they work fine. But I want webmail.
I tried to install exchange 2000 on win 2003 but there is a version conflict message when I start the installation.

You will have to use something like Exchange to get the webmail (unless you set up pop3 accounts with your ISP). I believe that Exchange 2000 will not work on Windows server 2003. You'll need Exchange 2003 or Windows 2000 Server

There are many email servers available that do have webmail as a built in function. Obviously Exchange is the most popular, but also the most expensive. Unfortunately I do not know too much about Exchange so I can't comment on that.

The mail server that I use is 'FTgate'. It's quite a good service and does everything my organisation requires. It also has a built in webmail feature. Licensing is alot cheaper than Exchange, but I guess it's not full of the same features so that is understandable.

www.ftgate.com - I recommend it
