Is there anyway to share a folder on the server in RWW like you can in SBS 2011?

I am afraid not You could add a second server running Windows Storage Server 2008 essentials, which offers that feature.
You can of course share files using Sharepoint with SBS 2008.

Technically no. Ideally you would add files to a Sharepoint directory and users would access them internally and externally using Sharepoint.
However there are many post such as the following on the internet claiming you can do as you wish. I have never tried.

This lead me in the right direction.

Here is how you do it. You do it through OWA which is part of RWW.

Very nice way of doing it on 2008. Of course 2011 is better.

Hi RickExpert. Just as a "heads up" that feature as I recall was "broken" about a year ago, I think With Exchange SP3, and as of yet has not been fixed.

Well the customer is on SP3 v8.3 (Build 83.6) and it seems to be working fine. I will see over the next few weeks.

Good to hear. Just wanted you to be aware if it wasn't working. There have been a lot of complaints that it has yet to be fixed.
