I am responsible for branch office IT Support and in the process of upgrading customer from workgroup to Client/Server solution. I have opted for Windows Small Business Server 2003. The main office is also running Windows SBS 2003 and host mail for branch office (mail@mainofficedomain). Currently, users at branch office check their pop accounts at mainofficedomain. Can you suggest how I should configure Exchange on branch server (SBS2003)? Domain name convention? Setup sub domain? Best way for branch users to check mail at mainofficedomain?  Should I configure clients with pop accounts and just use exchange for information store, clanandering? or is there a better approach to handling mail in this scenario?

I would say the easiest way to handle this is create  user accounts with a dummy email addresses like user1@branchoffice.local and in the main office create the mail enabled contacts with email addreesses like user1@branchoffice.local. Create a SMTP conenctor to forward the mail from for bracnhoffice.local to you brach office exchange server.
