Will Windows Mail work as a terminal server mail solution on server 2008

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hi guys,

I am setting up a terminal server and a couple of users need terminal access to their emails.

I dont want to have to purchase the necesarry "Volume Licensing" for MS Office 2007 as the smallest bundle is around $3300 (AU).   I was wondering if windows mail is a part of Server 2008 (or an optional "feature") and whether or not it can be used concurrently by multiple terminal users.

I am hoping that I can use windows mail to connect these users to their exchange accounts which they can access through the terminal.

If anyone has done something like this or has any ideas then that would be great.
