HI,
I''m setting up a sbs 2003 server for a client i manage mostly windows server 2003 standard and i notice this sbs comes with a lot of built in wizards and cool features, i'm not sure if i need or should utilize the programs it comes with namely the company website. this is what i did so far:

set up os
set up users
moved the users sahred home drives to diff partition
set permissions for home drives
set up group drives
set permission on group drives
set up to map gruop drives in log on script
set up to map home drive in ad properties
installed symantec endpoint protection
installed and configured backup exec

so what exactly is the company website and how do i set it up?
what is contained in the default user login script and should i leave that line in (doesnt seem like it is doing anything)
is there anything else i should do for the server set up?

the server is basicly a file server with an AD env, there are 4 employees and its for a law firm

the server will also be acting as a app server for thier calander software as well as a law program, both have a database stored on the server and the software runs local to each pc and accesses the databases

company web site should be the Share point services.
you could just let it be .. if you do not want to use SPS to setup ur intranet ..
otherwise .. your setup looks ok to me..

Having exchange installed might only slow down the server at startup/shurdown as the associated services would have to be started/stopped.. otherwise it should not affect anything else.
about the companyweb.. it is nothing but Sharepoint services 2.0 .. you can host a collection of documents in a web format using SP services.
