Hello Guys,
I just got registered to this forum and I'm wonder if anyone can assist me here. I don't know if this is the right place to post this message. I have been reading a lot of articles and quite some few books on Microsoft exchange server 2003 for some time now.

My question is: If I want to install and setup Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 or 2007 in an organisation or in a lab setup for training purposes, do I need to have a website before installing and configuring Exchange Server? I'm a newbie in exchange server management.

I'm asking this because I see people email addresses ending with their organization's website addresses. For example, website of some organization: www.mywebsite.org and email address of a work in that organization: emailid@mywebsite.org

Please I would very glad if anyone could assist me.

Thanks in advance
Yekini

It's not a website you need first, it's the registered domain name.  You can own the rights to mywebsite.org without having Email or a website.  If you are expecting to create a website, or expecting to be able to receive mail from other Internet users, you need to register a unique domain name.

Your question really doesn't have much to do with Exchange per se.  Since you are doing this as a training exercise, please obtain training materials and start reading.  If you run into specific questions that you don't feel are adequately covered in your training, feel free to post them here at the forums.

Thanks uemurad for the reply. I really appreciate it. At least I have somewhere to start from. That means once I have a unique registered domain name I can setup a mail server or a web server.

Thanks

If you want your users to access it externally, then you need to register for a domain. But if you are setting it up for internal training purposes, your Active directory domain name would do!!
