    Yes, if you meet the requirements for Exchange.

    Google will tell you what the requirements are, how to setup Exchange and how to configure what domains to accept email for.

      thanks for the reply... just some basic concerns

      since the webserver(hosting multi-sites) will be an exchange server, i need to promote it to a DC right?

      then, what should be the domain name since its hosting several websites? please guide i'm new to this type of set-up. what is used before was promoting the server to a DC using the registered internet domain name.

      thanks

        No, DONT make it a DC
        Exchange 2007 works much better with external DCs

        I presume your web sites are running on IIS and the server is 64 bit?

            To run Exchange, you need an existing Active Directory domain with domain controllers at your site. I meant a domain controller that is NOT the Exchange box

            I dont know about Exchange on Windows Foundation Server -- 15 connection limit might be an issue

              Exchange on a DC is generally regarded as a bad idea.

              Using a DC as a web server or anything else that's accessible to the outside world is generally regarded as a bad idea.

              Etc etc.

              And as has been stated, I don't think running Exchange on Windows Server Foundation is going to give very good results. That's really not the sort of usage that Foundation was intended for.

                depending on what sort of access you want your users to have, why don't you just use a pop3/smtp type of webmail setup, like most ISPs use ?
