Hello,

For a small 12 users network, I plan to install a Windows 2008 R2 Foundation server with Exchange 2010.And  I have been told this config is not supported and that I need Windows 2008 R2 Standard. Can you confirm ?

My configuration will be a single server, AD, DNS, DHCP, SQL application and Exchange 2010
I plan tu purchase a DELL Power Edge Server, 4Go RAM, 3 SAS RAID-5 disks, any problem with this config ?  (4 Go RAM will be enough ?, better to go with Exchange 2007 ?  )

THanks

Only Standard and upwards is supported.

Also, you may want to check how much resources you need, i.e. RAM and hard drive space

www.msexchange.org has a spreadsheet that tells you how much RAM and hard drive space is required per user per server...

SBS 2011 may be more suitable if you only have one server on the network...
