Exchange 2010 Home server

Posted on 2011-09-30

I have added 2 new servers to my exchange 2003 server environment. A CAS 2010 server in a DMZ and an exchange 2010 Mailbox server with Hub on the local LAN.
Below is the setup of my site.

I moved my own mailbox from exchange 1 to the new server exchange 3, but even though ADSI edit says under MTA and Home MDB server the new one my exchange account setup points to the CAS server.
Is this something is should worry about as I would expect it to point to the mailbox server.

2010 server roles are very different to 2003 firstly I would not recomment putting your CAS server in the DMZ this is not a 'front end server. There are quite a few guides out there to help you with the transition.

ok thanks. Moved the CAS onto the LAN as specified by MS.

Outlook still points to the CAS rather the mailbox server,

That is the correct behaviour as outlook is the client and this is the client access server. There is a good guide to the different layouts of the roles in 2003 - 2007 - 2010 at the link here:
Hope this helps!
