MS Exchange 2003

We have clients that want to send us files via FTP. Can we have them FTP those files to our exchange 2003 server? How can we make this happen?

You can add the FTP service to your server using Add/Remove Programs/Windows Components (Application Server/IIS), although FTP is more IIS-related, as opposed to Exchange-related. You will also need to map incoming port 25 connections to the server, using your router.

You should be aware that enabling FTP connections to your Exchange server presents security issues, and will affect its performance while files are being transferred.  Since FTP is nothing to do with Exchange, I would suggest that you see if you have another server you can use.  Even a workstation would be suitable.

Sorry, it's port 21, not 25.  Got SMTP on the brain.
