Firstly what connectivity is this external storage? If you are talking about USB external drives then a big NO.

Secondly, databases are not needed to separate company departments. Why would you feel the need to separate mailboxes into different databases?

If you have a "Server" that can only handle a single 500GB hard disk then I would start by using a decent server. Exchange will not perform well on a USB device.
Are you sure you can only have a single 500GB disk in your "Server"? What Make/Model is it?

Thunderbolt is not USB folks, You should have no problem with thunderbolt but local storage is by far the best
