for the backup ... Microsoft exchange Symantec Backup Exec is the best option... where u can recover single mailbox ...

Simplified Disaster Recovery means a complete server backup on tape or any other Storage....

as well as u can create Physical machine to VM

There isn't really a best practise for any of your points, because it varies for every company.
I have clients where they have unlimited mailbox sizes, others that restrict to just 50mb.

It comes down to how much storage, how fast you can restore and whether you are replicating the data. If you have the data stored elsewhere (Archiving) then you can run one strategy, if you are using a DAG then it can be argued that you only need to backup once a week, once a month or even never.

Send/Receive - if you go over 50mb then it is unlikely that you will be able to send to other businesses. Email is not a good transfer tool for large files. I only have one client with higher than 50mb and they are an architects.
