Are there any realistic tools out there for planning an exchange environment?
I currently have approx 30 users, & am looking at the end of life for SBS 2008 & am trying to determine the best route to go.
I seem to have heard that M$ really wants you to have 2 exchange servers, which may be fine in a 100,000 mailbox environment, but not a small one like mine. There are other considerations, as well, as my other servers (T110 II, 2008 r2 std, basically for remote access to quickbooks & a T100, 2008 std,  that's a bdc) may need to be upgraded as well & I am not wanting to bust my IT budget! I know some argue that it's best to keep everything under my control, but my environment is not a high maintenance one.
Any advice appreciated!
