Exchange 2007 is role based. When you decide if you want to perform a typical or a custom installation, you are essentially deciding which roles you want to install on the server. Microsoft engineer said we should plan for 5K(Bytes), per second, per user, for bandwidth to the remote sites. That seems VERY high to me. That would mean I would need 4Mbps for exchange alone for 100 users! (5KB/s * 8 = 40Kbps * 100 users = 4000Kbps = 4Mbps = 2 full E1 circuits!)
