I have just purchased a new Dell Server for a client with 20 users. The server comes bundled with Windows Server 2012 - and therefore no Exchange Server.
SBS 2011 would have been the ideal OS for this client. However I am now wondering as to the best solution to deal with the Exchange requirement. They are not keen to have their exchange data hosted offsite via a shared exchange server or via office 365.
So..............my options are (as I see it).
1) Source a copy of SBS 2011 and format new server - and install SBS 2011
2) Source a copy of Exchange 2013 and install locally on Windows 2012
Can anyone advise on best fit for purpose and cost effective solution?
