Exchange 2010 is 64 bit application and cannot be installed on Windows 2003.

Exchange 2010 you can create one public folder.
Exchange 2013 is a part of DAG.

i assume you meant one public folder database, not just one public folder :)

Public Folder Limits for Exchange 2013: Public Folder Limits

Is public folder mail box in exchange 2013 part of dag
In Exchange 2013 Public Folders are can now be part of a DAG (and they should be) because in Exchange 2013 they are now Public Folder Mailboxes which allows Public Folders to be part of a DAG.

thanks for all reply.

I forgot to ask one question , I would appreciate if u can answer

I heard that  CAS, then  HUB,  then MAILBOX role should be installed?

what if I install HUB first and then CAS what problem can it create.

I am talking in context of exchange 2007 , exchange 2010

Will SzymkowskiSenior Solution ArchitectCommented:
The order to install in a co-existing environment is below...
- Client Access
- Hub Transport
- Mailbox Server

The above steps is the recommended approach and should be followed. However if you install the HT role first it should create an issue.

thanks , u mean if I install Hub and not CAS then mapi connection to mailbox wil be affected in exchange 2010 as CAS handles it?

Will SzymkowskiSenior Solution ArchitectCommented:
That is correct. In order to properly route messages/connect to mailboxes etc you need to have both roles installed before your mailbox server. Regardless Microsoft recommends installing CAS role first then HUB, although you need both roles installed to ensure your messages can be routed when they are sent.

CAS server role will proxy connections to Exchange 2007 CAS when the CAS server is in place initially.
