Hi all,

We have a client who is interested in SBS 2011, mainly for the remote web access for documents. The issue we have is that he has 3 offices with a total of about 35 users, but another 45 users who will only need email to their mobile devices. They also use SharePoint heavily.

I am thinking that SBS is probably not the best way forward, but would be interested to know if this scenario would be feasible at all.

Otherwise, can someone please confirm the best setup? I am thinking a simple Server 2008R2 box for AD and maybe My Docs storage, and a beefy one for Exchange, SharePoint and webDAV or something? As always, cost is an issue which is why SBS 2011 would be the preferred choice if possible, knowing the 75 user issue.
