General Direction on implementation of Exchange for a very small business
Posted on 2008-10-07
I am setting up a Windows based network for a small home office. Currently I have a server running 2003 Server Standard for hosting a local only domain and would like to install Exchange Server on another server running 2003 Server Enterprise x64 (this is NOT a domain controller). I have a static IP address and business class cable internet service.
Main goal: to get up to 5 Exchange users (email, contacts, calendar, tasks, etc.) accessable to my network of 10 workstations, several Windows Mobil 6 devices, and numerous laptops (outside the local area network).
-Am I crazy for even attempting to use exchange 2007 x64 for such a small installation? But will anything older connect to Mobil 6?
-I'm only running a local domain server, is this a problem?
-Do you know of any good step by step instructions on a simple Exchange installation and setup?
-Am I able to put SQL Server, Sharepoint Server, IIS, and a FTP Server on the same server as the Exchange?
