when setting up a exchange server with clients in the office i need answers to the following questions

1) can i use outlook express on the client computers or does it have to outlook ???

2) Do I set the account up on the client side as a imap account to connect to the exchnge server ..

3) if i have my domain registered with MX records set up and static IP registered
but on my domain can i add user accounts as needed or do i have to go through the ISP to setup mail account within the domain .

Should be

"1/. Well Outlook Express doesn't"

Also in regards to number 1 you lose all your Exchange features if they use Outlook Express such as mailbox sharing, calendar sharing pubic folders, global address list. So Outlook is always the better option.

1/. Well Outlook doesn't have an Exchange feature but you can set up Exchange to use POP3 account instead and everyone can download the messages to their hard drives.

2/. If it is Outlook you just configure the Exchange Server settings. If Outlook Express you c an use POP3 to hook up to Exchange. Exchange supports IMAP but never used it myself.

3/. No you just create the accounts on your Exchange server. As long as all the MX records are pointing to the Exchange server everything will be dandy.
and if you're only on a LAN look at .OST not .PST (which is pop'ing)
