Do you have any test environment for your exchange server infrastructure? Is it common to have a test exchange sertver - if so what is it used for, and are there any risks in not having a test server that replicates the production server?

Normally, you would have an Exchange test platform, which is completely isolated from your production environment. Especially as a lot of exchange settings are Organizational settings and would affect all of your Exchange servers.

If you are looking for a testing environment, a simple setup with a few VMs on a test machine will usually suffice.
