I am building a server 4 VM on it 1-domain controller 2-file 3- exchange 3-terminal
Will serve 15 employee over the next 5 year it may increase to 25
20 mailboxes may increase to 30 over the next five years
receiving about 75 per day. email in very important to the company
most of the use is light applications lick word and excel
at the moment willo may have 2 users the server remotely (cal)
Data about 250GB

What is your opinion about this quote

To batter explain my question. since there is only place for 8 drives if I go with Raid 10 I can only have 2 sets even If I go with Raid 1 for the host domain and terminal still there is only place for one Raid 10 so this means that the file server will or have to be on with the host domain and terminal set or with on the exchange set.
The other option take a less powerful machine and have a cheap machine for file but it more difficult to manage and involves more licensing. and the client runs on a limited budget

I hope this isn't an incorrect use of this forum but I am looking for guidance for something to use as a program, template or idea to keep track of client network specifications, user data and passwords, firewall settings, etc.
Is there a template or program other MSPs are using or is there any type of industry standard?

When a email account in configured in outlook as POP if two devices want to pick up the mail (from gmail server) only one will get it since on the gmail server its flagged as downloaded once the other device will not download it again.

Is there a way to set that more then one device should get all email from the same account without changing to IMAP?

The reason not to use IMAP since one user drags in to her folders in the account in question email from other accounts and with IMAP everything gets pushed back up the the gmail server and full up the limit of space in this email account.

Will the following be a solution, enable IMAP on the gmail server, and on the outlook side on the device files get dragged in the the account in question set up as POP so it will not push up to the gmail server and changes made in outlook, and the other devices set as IMAP?
Or if on the server IMAP is enabled it does matter how its set in outlook.
an other concern once the device that is set as IMAP will download the email it will get flagged as download the device set as POP will not get the emails?
