    there server itself should be fine as a Standard edition.

    the choice for Ex2010 depends on what requirements you have. It would be best for you to review those and make a decision for yourself. For instance, I could tell you that Ex2010 standard is fine.. but then you might realise you want a cluster..

    this may help

      Hmm, if mailbox resilency means a DAG you need Windows 2008 Enterprise since the DAG features also the cluster services which aren't a part of standard W2k8.

      Regarding Exchange version the only question is how much databases you need. If 5 databases are enough you can run standard with no problem since DAG is also possible with standard Exchange 2010.
