Configure a Hosted Exchange Server

Posted on 2010-09-10

Hello everyone!

I currently run about 10 different exchange servers that are all located on-site. We are now looking to move to a single Exchange 2010 server at a datacetner for high availability. I currently have no Exchange 2010 servers and I needs input on how to create a hosted exchange server.

Can anyone guide me to an article or explain what special steps are needed to ensure isolation between the clients. What do I need to watch out for? I assume I would do this WITHOUT integrating an AD?

Please point me in the right direction. Thanks!!

Am I correct in reading that Exchange 2010 SP1 hosting mode will disable the use of Outlook 2003? Even when using RPC-HTTPS....?

It wont
as per the document here
outlook 2003 is supported.

Check under support for outlook/entourage
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996719.aspx

from the article:

If you have clients running Outlook 2003, be aware of the following when you upgrade your organization to Exchange 2010:

Clients running Outlook 2003 don’t use RPC encryption, which RPC Client Access requires by default. You will either need to turn off the RPC encryption requirement or configure Outlook 2003 to use RPC encryption. However, Outlook 2007 and later versions are automatically compatible with the change to RPC Client Access because they support RPC encryption by default. For more information, see Understanding RPC Client Access.

Clients running Outlook 2003 may experience some performance issues. This situation occurs because we no longer have User Datagram Protocol (UDP) notifications support in Exchange 2010. For more information about resolving this issue, see Knowledge Base article 2009942, In Outlook 2003, e-mail messages take a long time to send and receive when you use an Exchange 2010 mailbox. However, Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 are automatically compatible with this change.
