Windows 2003 network setup with mdaemon mail server.
Posted on 2006-05-01
I am currently thinking about upgrading my network. I am installing a terminal server and I also want ot a mail server, the new server is windwos server 2003.
I believe you cant setup up ms exchange on a termainl server. I presently have a windows 2000 server without excahnge and a windwos 2000 pro pc that works as file server. I dont fancy getting a new server just for exchange so what I am thinking of doing is as follows.
Could I use the new terminal server as an the active directory server that contains all the user accounts for the network.
I was going to install MDAEMON mail software on the old windows 2000 server and use it as the mail server.
Would this work fine or could I run into problems with having users on differnet server.
Could I possibly setup MDAEMON on the new terminal server, The new terminal server would have about 20 terminal clients using it.
Hope someone can advise me on the best route to take.
