SBS 2011 Question

Hello all,
Excuse my newbie questions on SBS 2011 (if that is the latest version of SBS).
Most of my clients are on Windows Standard server (either 2003 or 2008) and I have never had to dive into the SBS realm.
I have a new client that has two PCs.  He needs a server for all his critical data so obviously SBS would be the best option.
My questions:
1)  Can we run SBS without using Exchange?  He only has one email address and does not want to do Exchange whatsoever.
2)  Can SBS be setup so that he can remotely connect to the server if he is out of town?  He will have a static IP address.
3)  I am very familiar with Backup Exec to do backups.  He will have an internal backup unit in the new server.  Will Backup Exec work correctly with SBS?
I am looking at having 3 hard drives that are each 500 gig with stripping and at least 6 gig of RAM.  Will SBS work with this configuration?
