Best email protocol to use to serve everybody?
Posted on 2010-09-09
We are running a Microsoft Exchange 2003 server. As of now, we have yet to open up the server so outside users can connect with an external email client, or a smartphone. We're looking to roll something out, but we're a little perplexed as to which protocol(s) to use. If posslble, we'd like to have one solution that serves everybody. We've looked at ActiveSync, but that leaves out Blackberry users (unless they're willing to pay for a 3rd party client, which we don't want to suggest). What should we use?
Also, would it be best to implement a second server? Also also, do we make the new front-end server 2003, or would a 2010 server work ok with 2003?
