This is the recommended optimum hardware setup (in boxes still at the moment). It's being setup for us by Microsoft and SWSoft end of September barring unforseen delays.

I will be moving all my email services on to this as soon as it's all ready to go!

Setup for you by Microsoft and SWSoft? Where's the fun in that?

Clustering is awesome.

How much RAM per box? I quickly upgraded my Exchange 2007 box from 2GB to 4GB.

15 machines for an email server?

You missed a bit:

15 machines for a high availability fully N+1 redundant Exchange 2007 mail cluster with an initial deployment capacity of 50,000 mailboxes.

It'll be an EMC SAN array I'm told. I'll put a photo up as soon as I see somekind of storage.

All the Dell's area racked up now. Forgot to take a photo on the way out.

Servers are Dell 2950's.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
