Hi, I have a client with an Exchange server, we have had some problems with it and now are managing the email off site, on each (of the three computers) I added "internet mail" which allows me to manage their email from the client side, and the Exchange server still allows them to use a shared calander and contacts, great, but how do I remove the email functions from the exchange server.  

thanks a ton.

SlickTech,

exchange in its purest form is an email server - the rest is just bonuses....why dont you look at fixing the issue? i mean, we can stop mail working but why would you want to not fix it?

Regards,

James

Its doable, but definitely more trouble than its worth.  Perhaps as Jay_Jay70 suggested, we could help you resolve the mail issue with Exchange that forced you to outside hosting?

I am going with the outside hosting.  Yahoo did host it and the Exchange mail boxes managed the mail, I just want to use the internet client from within Outlook.  They have 3 users, I think Exchange is overkill, and actually I'm migrating the rest to ACT!, but for now we need the calander and contacts of Exchange.

Quoting Jay_Jay70: "exchange in its purest form is an email server - the rest is just bonuses."

Exchange uses the mail functionality process meeting requests/responses.

You could setup Exchange so that mail would never route to the internet by setting an SMTP connector that denied send rights to all users.  But stopping mail routing altogether, not going to happen.
