We are currently looking at upgrading our Windows 2000 web server to 2003.  We have IMAIL installed as our email server - my question will I be able to install this on the Web edition of Win Server 2003 or will I need the standard edition?

Has anyone got experience with IMAIL on the Web Edition?

Thanks

We had no problem installing imail on the standard or web edition.  Depending on what version of IMAIL you have you may need to upgrade IMAIL.   We ended up going with a new email server software since we had to upgrade.  Merek Mail server is the best and lowest price solution we have found and it has tons of features.  Actually we think it smokes IMAIL and it's half the price.  Overall if you still haven't purchased the Windows 2003 yet I would get Standard over the web edition.  For the amount of money you save you lose in functinality.

My hosting company offers me web edition by default.  Standard edition is quite a bit extra and I am wondering what the difference is.  As far as I can tell the only difference is that I can't install SQL Server - which I don't use on this server anyway.

Thanks for the help, I was unsure if Imail would work with the Web Edition, I think that all the other components that I have installed will work OK.
