Is it possible to setup SBS 2003 as the front-end server to a back end Exchange Enterprise 2003 server?

We want to do this to be able to continue to use SBS as the server which responds to OWA and RPC/HTTP requests using the default SSL cert generated from the SBS setup wizards.

The backend server will be a clustered Exchange Enterprise 2003 server.

If it is possible... any gotcha's I should be aware of before trying this?

Tim,

A domain hosted on SBS supports only 75 users. Why would you need clustered enterprise servers
to support 75 users? If there is a gotcha here, that might be one!

It's for a 30 person law firm who has instructed to me that email must be highly available.  Clustered Exchange will do the job.

However, they like the Remote Web Workplace functionality.  The users are used to it and already trained to use it.

Because of that, I want to know if I can set the SBS server to be the Exchange Front End server for OWA, PocketPC activesync over the air, etc. as it does in a standalone environment.

I've seen this question posted a few times here but no answers yet.
