Using Lotus Domino instead of Exchange on SBS

    Heresy, I know, :-] but...

    I have a client that is a small (25 users) subsidiary of a multinational
    that uses Lotus Notes. They currently have WinNT running Notes R5 and will be
    migrating to Notes R6.55 and Windows Server 2003.

    It seems to me that the advantages of SBS 2003 could be applied in that
    environment by not installing Exchange and instead installing Lotus Domino.
    IBM's site doesn't specifically mention SBS 2003 as a supported environment,
    so I thought I'd ask here and see if anyone has attempted or is supporting
    this setup.

    Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated.

    In that this company is a subsidary of a larger company, SBS is probably NOT
    a good fit. It cannot support trusts. All components must be installed
    on one server and many of the nice reporting features etc won't work if
    Exchange isn't there

    This client should stay with the Windows Server 2003 standard products
