I have proposed an Exchange 2003 Enterprise Edition Server and have explained to the customer that Enterprise is necessary due to them wanting multiple databases.

Another consultant is telling them that this is possible with MS Exchange 2003 Standard. Am I overlooking something?

The customer wants the ability to have multiple email domains. This is only possible with Enterprise? No? Thank you...

Exchange (standard or enterprise) can receive mail for multiple domains.

Check this out:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822440/en-us

From the above link:
Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition
Exchange 2003 Standard Edition is designed to meet the messaging and collaboration requirements of small and medium corporations and for specific messaging server roles or branch offices.




Four storage groups can be created on a server


One mailbox store database and one public folder store database that can be accessed by using MAPI and Outlook Web Access


Up to four more public folder store databases that are only accessible programmatically


Maximum 16-gigabyte (GB) database limit per database (75 GB with Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2)


Exchange clustering is not supported


X.400 connector is not included
Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise EditionExchange 2003 Enterprise Edition is designed for large enterprise corporations. With Exchange 2003 Enterprise Edition, you can create multiple storage groups and multiple databases. Exchange 2003 Enterprise Edition provides an unlimited message store that removes the constraints on how much data a single server can manage.

You will need to install the enterprise version if you are wanting multiple databases/storage groups. I am guessing you are planning a hosted environment.

Answer: Yes, only Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise Edition will allow you to create multiple Storage Groups and multiple databases.  In addition, database size has no logical limits (eg. if you start scaling Exchange mailbox to infinity you will run into CPU or Windows 2003 32bit memory limitation as well as physical storage limitations.)

Another consultant is telling them that this is possible with MS Exchange 2003 Standard. Am I overlooking something?

The customer wants the ability to have multiple email domains. This is only possible with Enterprise? No? Thank you...
Answer: No, you can have multiple email domains on Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition.  There is no limit to how many domains you can assign to any of the Exchange server editions.
