Hi Everyone,
I have an interesting problem. I recently purchased a Mac computer, but when I tried to install Mac Office 2011, it would not find my exchange server 2003 on our SBS 2k3. This makes the computer useless, because I need my email on my computer. So I think it is time for us to upgrade from SBS 2003 to get exchange 2010. My main question is this: We only use the exchange and DC function of SBS right now, not sharepoint or anything else, and have citrix servers and file servers running everything else. We only have 11-15 users, so what is the best (cheapest) solution to getting exchange2010 - SBS 2011 or Windows 2008 w/ Exchange 2010 installed on it. Given the new RAM requirements of Exchange 2010, we would need to get a new server. What is a reliable and cheap rack server that can handle SBS 2011/Exchange 2010 for our small business?
Thank you in advance!
