  • Probably drunk: Exchange 2003 Standard vs Enterprise in FE/BE Topology

    Hello there

    I'm pretty sure I have read this info on some official MOC of MS2400 course (for non-MCT, there are 3 editions of that MOC: a,b,c and now on MCT site you can only find C version):
    "One of the difference between E2003 Std and E2003 Ent is that on the Standard Edition you can only front-end/back-end HTTP/S protocol. If you want to front-end POP3 or IMAP4 then your front-end server must be Enterprise Edition)"

    Now, I can't find this anymore either in MS Support Site or the Internet. The only thing I have found is http://support.microsoft.com/kb/818476/en-us

    So, I ask myself. Where is the need to publish this article? Probably Microsoft had changed this in past and that and then published this to clarify?
    Is there anyone who read that limitation in past?
    Am I drunk?

    I have never known any restrictions of that type with Exchange 2003. I have built two sites with those protocols on a standard edition frontend, so it certainly cannot be the case. With Exchange 2000 you had to use Enterprise edition for a frontend, but with Exchange 2003 that is not the case.

    Many people get the requirements for FE/BE mixed up between Exchange 2000 and 2003.

    Simon.
