Im thinking about setting up a shared exchange server and i got a couple of thoughts before i know if i want to follow through on this idea or not.

First of all, i have a SPLA and through this i got Microsoft Windows 2003 Web Enhanced, which excludes AD. Is AD nessesary for running Exchange Server?

Do i need any additional software than exchange server for setting up this shared hosting?

Are there any great guides on how to approach? Or is this something a fairly skilled computer guy can manage to learn in a couple of days?

* AD is very much required to install exchange.

* The below link should give you a fair enough idea on how to do that:


Good Luck (^_^)
