Exhange Server 2013 - Setup step by step


i want to install Exchange Server 2013 for about 5 users.

Exchange should only be run as "Groupware". Postfix should be the SMTP.

Is there a tutorial available? Or maybe somebody did the same? :)

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

For five users, deploy Office365.
You cannot really use Exchange without email functionality, as it is required for a lot of the "groupware" that you want to use.

yea , but office365 isnt a option
Simon Butler (Sembee)ConsultantCommented:
You are going to have to setup email, as email will flow between those users. You cannot stop that behaviour. If you only want groupware (by that I presume you mean shared calendars) I would be looking at something else other than Exchange. Exchange is primarily an email server, everything is based around it being an email server and its functionality depends on it being an email server.
If two users send email to each other, it will go through Exchange. If they send to a third party, that will go through Exchange as well.
