You don't ever put an exchange server apart from the Edge Transport role in the DMZ, there is no need to and it's unsupported by Microsoft

Juliancito, that is completely wrong, it does need to be part of the domain otherwise you cannot install Exchange on it.

It makes no difference what the version is, Exchange of any version other than the Edge Transport role is insecure and unsupported in a DMZ

(Any) Exchange server should always be on the domain, imo.

dexIT, I agree, but you don't actualy have a choice, if it's not part of a domain you cannot install Exchange, period!
