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 ?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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.
