I am installing and configuring Small Business Server 2011 tomorrow. Last time I did an install, it was SBS2003. I have read as much as I can on what to expect but one thing worries me and I am hoping that someone can share their knowledge with me.
During the SBS2011, IAMW seems to require everyone to nominate a domain name to use to setup the company's public website and email addresses, etc., For various reasons, I want to leave the web hosting and email accounts on web hosting company's server (not self host).
I want to setup SBS2011 to use 'POP3 Connector' to collect emails (email@example.com) from hosting company's email server and of course send emails with the same @companydomain.com email addresses.
This might be easy if users did not need to access their emails on the road. I probably could have ignored IAMW setup. Unfortunately, users are use to "Outlook Web Access" (OWA) on SBS2003 so OWA or Remote Web Workplace (RWW) needs to be setup. For that, I already have another domain name registered (ie. staffuseonly.com).
So, if all goes well, I am hoping to achieve the following:
Users send and receive emails using @companydomain.com
Users can access RWW using remote.staffuseonly.com address
Do not want public website hosted on staffuseonly.com (this domain is 100% used by staff only)
Here is my game plan. I will install SBS2011 Standard as a clean install (not migrate from 2003). When I get to IAMW, I am planning to use staffuseonly.com address to setup. That should take care of RWW but all the user email addresses will be using the wrong domain.
I am hoping their is a way to change the Exchange in SBS2011 to use @companydomain.com, can anyone please tell me how?
Can anyone see any issues I might bump into by setting it up this way?
It has been a little while since I setup SBS2003... my memory have failed me. If POP3 Connector collects email messages, where can I set the Outgoing Email Server details so all the outgoing messages can be forwarded to the ISP email server?
Any assistance or heads-up will be very much appreciated.
