Ive just finished installing SBS 2003 with both Win 2003 SP2 & Exchange sp2.  Im assuming i would start from the to do list but when i get to the Add User Computers, which states it asks for email information although I have not set it up yet.  So im assuming in-conjunction with the 'To do list' I should go through it but when I know 'Exchange' is NOT setup then presumably I should go straight to 'Internet & Email' and configure from there first of all!!

Is this how I should go about using SBS 2003?

First thing I would do is run the Connect To The Internet wizard in the To Do List to configure Exchange and that will then allow you to add your users and their respective email addresses.

ok so once i 'connect to the internet' to give me 'local' email ability with potential clients, then presumably i will have to add the part for 'outbound', just like i have done in the passed with 'Exchange 2003' on a 'standard' edn cd?

Running the wizard will configure your domain for external / internal email.

Are your users setup?

If not - set them up and they will pickup the email domain name that you enter in the wizard.

ok thanks for that i did not realise SBS 2003 asks for all the 'exact' information, where as win 2003 standard with Exchange 2003 is not done that way as you have to know what goes where to get at least the inbound/outbound functional!!!:uummmmm useful

SBS is designed to let the wizards do al the hard work for you so that you don't have to be an Exchange / Server genius to get one working and maintain it.

With Exchange 2003 - it is assumed you know what you are doing and everything is manual!

yes well i have only ever setup Exchange 2003 once via a 'fixed ip address' and was successful in send/receive internal/outbound email with no other specific & secure information, just to learn how to do it and i made my notes.  thanks for that!!!!!!

Okay - well one is more than some :D

So - have you run the wizard and is the mail-flowing happily?

Have you run the wizard to create new users too?

Okay - you can still run the wizards internally and get Exchange ready to go unless there is something else stopping you.
