MS exchange 2003 standard

i bought MS exchange server 2003 standard edition. I currently have two offices, one in NYC and one in Florida. I have a vpn between the two and i run windows 2003 server. I am running active directory on both and they are replicating well. I just installed exchange 2003 in the nyc office. I was wondering if i can also install MS exchange 2003 standard edition on the Florida office as well. I know there would be two different mail storages but i wanted the clients to pull mail locally. Is MS exchange 2003 standard edition capable to do this?

what would you do?

let me know thanks.

Yes you can do this (provided you have purchased a license for the Floeida server).

FYI- It would be better to post Exchange questions in the Exchange forum on this website.
I had a similiar situation.  Might be some helpfull info here:

Yes.  Once Exchange is installed it is part of AD.  This allows it to be physically anywhere and still have replication and service abilities.  In other words all you need to do is add the exchange server to the already existing site and it will be automatic.  When you add a new user you can specify which mailbox to use.  Make sure you replicate the public folders so that both boxes have access.  This is fairly simple and fully supported feature of Exchange.
