Doing work for an electrical company who wants to move from a workgroup environment to a server environment including Exchange. They currently have a domain name, website and they retreive their email from their ISP via a browser. Have not installed Windows 2003 SBS yet so they are still in a workgroup.
I have 2 questions:
1) must I make their domain name on the server different than their current domain name?
2) how would I get their current email into their Outlook

Hi

1. You can use their existing domin name for the internal dns structure if you wish. 

2. Can you download the existing mail via pop  from the isp ? if so you can import it into the mailbox via outlook.

if they are a small company have you looked at hosted exchange ?

thanks for the reply.....
I'm not sure if they can download their mail. By hosted exchange do you mean do I plan on installing Exchange? Yes..I plan on installing Exchange 2003. If they can't download their email...could I setup POP3 and SMTP on Exchange and have them get their current POP3 mail then remove the POP3....correct? Or what are my options?

yes you can setup a pop connector download their email, remove the connector and then just use smtp.

hosted exchange is where a third party hosting company runs the exchange server and you connct over the internet. we have found it useful for sme's , very scalable as the company grows, you only pay for the number of mailboxes o a monthly basis, they can also backup, spam filter and archive if you want.
