"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.

Exchange does not come in a "home" version. The closest you are going to get is Exchange with SBS. And even then you still need to do all of the initial configuration with MX records static IP address and PTR records, Server licensing, Exchange Server license and CAL's.

So if you plan to have an Internet presence it will be every expensive for a "home" use scenario.

If you just want to have this in a lab environment, you can just download exchange and use it for that use only. Trials are typically good for 180 days.

If you're just looking to use the features of Exchange and not doing a lab situation you can just purchase mail services from Office 365. Basic Exchange mail services are $4 per month.
