Where to place the Exchange server?

Hi All,

  I have some questions regarding where to place our Exchange server, in the DMZ or the internal network?  I really appreciate any one who can help me out or point me to references that explain how to setup the Exchange server and its web access feature with a firewall or DMZ.  Thank you very much.

  Here is the scenario.  
    Exchange Server 2000 or Exchange Server 2003
    Cisco Pix Firewall 515E
    One DMZ zone created

  We need our employees to be able to access their e-mails, calendars, tasks, etc. on the Exchange server from outside with the Internet through Exchange's Web Access feature; and at the same time the internal network users also need to have access to the same Exchange server so that all employees can cooperate on shared calendars, tasks, notes, etc.

      1) Where should we place the Exchange server? In the DMZ or the internal network?
      2) Can it be done if we place the Exchange server in the internal network, and how do we configure it?  (this might be asking too much, a point in a right direction or reference will do as well)

  Thanks again.

Look at the discussion in this TA.

The discussion is basically the same as yours. Best practice is to have your Exchange mailbox server on the Intranet (internal network) and have a frontend server place in the DMZ. Since this server will not be storing information it can be really basic (desktop even).
