setup : Win 2003 Standard HP server  2GB RAM
Installed all updates SP2 .NET
Installed exchange 2007 trial 120 days
Want to configure the calendar function to enable mixed clients (40+)  XP + Macinotsh outlook 2007 + Entourage 2004 MAC
We have our own mailhost that ALL clients are currently setup to access on a Macintosh box and dont want to setup the mail functionality in exchange 2007 YET ....
Can this be achieved so that each user has a calendar running over exchange ( in another account possibly) and the invites are bumpfed out over the current mailhost IP / hostname ?

Exchange cannot be used in bits. You either need to use it for email, or don't use it at all. As soon as you start configuring clients for Exchange using Outlook they will want to use Exchange for email. You can try and fight against it, but you will ultimately lose the battle.

What if we just wanted to locally relay mail through exchange for calendar functionality ?

You can't really do that.
Outlook and Exchange will want to look after all email. Internal and external. Exchange is an email server. You will have some external email going out through Exchange with invalid addresses etc. If you want something for calendaring then I would suggest you look for another product. Exchange is a very expensive calendar sharing application.
