    Re: Publishing Exchange in DMZ

    Placing an Exchange server in the DMZ is not advicable, and would really recommend to not place an Exchange server in the DMZ.

    Why do you want to place an exchange server in the DMZ?

      You could always place a front end server, if you really wanted to and understand the risk, in the DMZ.

      However, it's much better to only allow certain ports through the firewall to your exchange server and make sure it's hardened.

        You have ISA, that is designed to go in the DMZ.
        Leave Exchange where it is, then configure ISA appropriately for use in the DMZ, publishing the relevant folders. All you will need open is port 80 and 443. Full instructions are on isaserver.org
