    Hey all,

    right now, everyone is using the outlook that is installed on each workstation. I would to move their inboxes/folders/contacts onto Outlook2003 that is with SBS2003 so that 1-their mail can move with them between workstations, and 2-Everyone can be on the same calender and view each other's calender.

    Would I just create each user in outlook and move their .pst file over? Maybe their is a handy-dandy tutorial on this? Been googling but can't quite locate what I am looking for.


    Thanks,

    Heeter

    Have you thought about setting up exchange? I am pretty sure it's on the SBS CD, at least the one I have has it :)

    Other than that, yes, you could technicall store all the PST's on the server and setup profiles for each user on each workstation, but that's a PITA.

    I have not checked to see if the CD came with Exchange or not, but if it did, then I will definitely set that up.

    Thanks for the heads up on that,

    Heeter

    SBS 2003 comes in two flavours :- Standard & Premium

    The following software is included with each version

    Windows Server 2003 - Standard & Premium
    Sharepoint Services - Standard & Premium
    Exchange 2003 - Standard & Premium
    Outlook 2003 - Standard & Premium
    WSUS - Standard & Premium
    Shared Fax Services - Standard & Premium
    SQL Server 2005 - Premium
    ISA Server 2004 - Premium
    Frontpage 2003 - Premium
    For most small companies (<50 users) SBS is a great solution and is relatively cheap.

    I'm surprised that you don't have Exchange already installed. I thought it was part of the standard SBS installation procedure.

    No it is not installed.

    This is a Dell Poweredge 1600SC, and it is not in there.

    When I arrive at this office tomorrow, I will be asking for the original Dell install CD.

    It's a customizable option, doesn't necessarily get installed by default.

    I am just looking now, other than Server2003, outlook2003, Dell did not install nothing else on this poweredge.

    They are still searching for the original CD for this server, I am going to install everything that you listed here, might as well.

    Thanks for the list.
