We have recently purchased a Domain name with email service  and require few users to access email via owa.
due to company policy we can't use pop3 service.
My questions is:
Can we install exchange 2010 on a Windows 2008 r2 Standlone server without installing AD & DNS?
This is to be use for small number of users then increase gradually....
can anyone please suggest me the best solution using above scenario or alternative?

Thanks

No. Exchange needs AD and DNS (somewhere in your network, not on the same server).
Maybe you should have a look at Small Business Server (depends on the number of users as SBS can only be installed on a single server).

no exchange cannot run without AD and DNS but there is no reason why you can't run all 3 on the same server as a start. you just need windows 2008 r2 and exchange 2010 no additional cost

Is there any other 3rd party service we can use just for accessing email in the view of owa lookalike?
our smtp gateway server will pickup the mail and forward to this email server.

thanks

A lot of servers will give you webmail hmailserver is a free one.

However if you were planning to buy 2008 r2 and exchange nothing stops u from using your original setup
