If you are setting up a 2008 SBS server, all you have to do is follow the SBS wizards, and the server will automatically install and configure Exchange, SharePoint, WSUS and Remote Web Workplace, among other services.

You'll need to forward TCP 25, 80, 443 and 987 through the firewall to the SBS server to provide full access to the mail, web-based and remote web functions.

You mean how to set up exchange ?

How to you want to use it?

Do you want to retive mail from another server via POP for example, or do you want mail to be sent/delivered directly to your server ?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.
