Years ago we set up SBS 2003 for our small office, and we've used it as a filesharing server and for Exchange.  When we set it up, we were advised to get a static IP, so we did.

Now we are moving to a different city, so we will lose our static IPs.  We will now be using it only for Exchange, and to connect to the server via gotomypc to do some file maintenance.

Questions:

--Is it still important to have a static IP?

--If so, I know where to go in the TCP/IP setup for the NIC to change the settings for the static IP, but are there other places we'll need to go in SBS to tell it we have a new static IP?  If so, where exactly would we go and what would we need to do?  TIA
