  • Exchange 2003 setup one one box


    I'm trying to setup an Exchange 2003 standard Server in my office. I have installed Windows Server 2003 R2 Sp1 with AD, DNS and exchange 2003 all together on one machine. (Due to budget constraints)

    i will set the MX record and DNS on my server and I have a public domain registered named "".

    I have a little knowledge on exchange and while doing searching i found below articles on Daniel Petri's website:

    Configure RPC over HTTP/S
    How to Enable IMAP Access to Exchange Mailboxes

    My question is what are the things required to set a functional exchange server without having FE and BE scenario on a single box? Also Need to configure outlook and web mail to check the emails over internet with IMAP.

    Any help/guidance would be appreciated.
    Thanks for your time.

    You need to look a bit harder on the main site (first link on is to

    That will take care of RPC/HTTPS, OWA is just a case of opening port 443 and getting appropriate certificates.

    For <deity of choice> sake avoid IMAP and POP3 unless you really have no other option!
