I am opening a branch office and need to setup exchange server . Right now in my head office I am using exchange server with domain as @glweststardubai.com. (We are downloading mails using pop collector into our exchange) What i want to know is whether I can configure the exchange with same domain name in branch office. Will it give any problem in sending or downloading mails. ie if any one sends out a mail to head office say "wilson@glweststardubai.com" from branch office email clarence@glweststardubai.com.

Exchange doesn't like sharing the SMTP name space.
It can be done, I have even outlined a process on my web site here: http://www.amset.info/exchange/twositesonedomain.asp
However that only allows co-existence of email addresses, you don't get calendars etc.

However your best option would be to link the two sites with a VPN and then put a standard Exchange server and domain controller in the other site as part of your current domain. Then staff can share the GAL, calendars, public folders etc.

Although depending on how many people are going to be in the branch office, it may be more effective for them to connect back to the main office using something like RPC over HTTPS or similar. If the branch office people are going to have laptops then they will need remote access anyway. Another option you could look at is a terminal server and thin clients. I have done that a couple of times with branch offices - everything remains on the parent site - the only thing in the branch are thin clients and a few printers.

Any reason you are still using the POP3 connector? It is not designed as a long term thing, just as something to help you move to SMTP delivery of email.
