    my clients at this stage will stay with POP3 on their dekstops and I will
    not be using exchange. what is the best way during set up then in order not
    to configure the email set up and just do user set up and the rest of the
    tasks in the set up?

  2. Hi Gabriel

    The best way is to use Exchange so that you will get the collaboration
    benefits and internal email in Outlook and use the POP3 connector in
    Exchange or if you prefer you can POP directly from Outlook by setting it up
    in Control Panel for each User.

    thanks, tyey just want to carry on using outlook express, i did not purchase
    symantec groupware with the exchange plug in for anti virus, just the
    business pack. so i will not be doing any exchange, however just wanted to
    know what i leave out when doing the set up of the machine, what not to
    configure then?

  4. Don't leave anything out.

    If they use Outlook Express, they'll never touch exchange without specific
    configuration in OE.

    You *might* elect not to push the Outlook 2k3 installation to the computers
    when running the add computer wizard. But I wouldn't recommend it. Just go
    with the wizards, configure everything. If you never use outlook, well
    that's your loss.

    Unfortunately, the choice to not use exchange means you're really not using
    SBS, as you'll miss out on a good part of the integrated funcionality.
    You're in for a less-than-optimal experience.

    I know, but 3 users will just need VPN access and nothing else as they are
    purely remote users. vpn will be used for another application they need to
