Hi, I have few questions I would like to ask, here it is:
1. We install Windows 2003 Server Enterprise edition and it wont activate using internet, (Internet is working, can go to any website), it saying wont locate the registration server. (We have same problem with Standard edition as well on different computers)
2. Install IIS6 and add one website ((worked on Win 2000 server with IIS5), afterward we can not access this site, IE saying you do not have permit to view the site, asking to enter log in and password when trying to go to this web site, in IIS6 securities for this site I have check marked "ON" anonymous access and basic permission check, try all setting still wont allow me to view site. see www.hulanetworks.com
3. How do I install Front page extension to this site? (Front page 2003 installed on this server)
4. We have to reinstall this domain controller (new install), so it lost all security and trust with all other domains and server computers on network, how do I reestablish trust so I don’t have to rejoin all computers to this new domain on each server that part of this domain?
5. We have users install on "123xxx" domain, we want to deactivate this domain, and make part of main domain "ABC" domain (new branch), but still want this computer be domain controller for local users (kind of ABC.local) how do we make it so all users will be able to rejoin this new domain and log in into it with out loosing they profiles and redoing all users profiles.
6. We want to create 2 mail servers ( primary and back up) with two MX records (our DNS at Network solutions), how do we do this proparly? what soft is  best to use Exchange or we have IPSwitch Imail server? Local users using Outlook can we mix one server is exchane other (back up) IMail?

In order...

1. Sounds like DNS or blocking of some kind. Choose the option to activate by phone.
2. Permissions or authentication, reading the rest of the question even more so.
3. FP Ext 2003 don't exist. Microsoft have dropped them. You only need extension for 2002 and previous.
4. Was it the only DC in the domain? If so then you are stuffed. You will have to drop all the computers out of the domain and join them back in again. If it was not the only DC then you need to explain what is wrong that makes you ask this question.
5. While both domains are active, drop the computers out to a workgroup, reboot, add them to the new domain, reboot.
Ask the user to login to the new domain. Immediately log out and log in as another user with at least local admin rights. Use the Copy Profile button in system properties to copy the profile across. Don't forget to check/change the Permitted user permissions on the profile.
Once you have moved all users, DCPROMO the DC out, drop in to a workgroup. Reboot. Add it to your main domain. DCPROMO in (rebooting where prompted).

6. Exchange doesn't play very well with backup servers. Your best bet is to have a backup relay server, one that sits there waiting for the main server to come back up. I don't know if IPSWITCH can do that - I usually ask the ISP in case it is a total disaster that takes Exchange down.
