I have a question about the front-end / backend process.    Does the
front-end service the internet smtp traffic only... And backend services
the inhouse outlook client stuff?

How exactly does this work... And what is the benefit?    Thanks a ton

Hi MARK,

Its very easy to built your front end back end Infrastructure.

I was wondering any reason if you want to use E2K as front end server.

Regards,
Kalpesh.

http://www.MSExchange.org/

Hello. I am in the process of planning a front-End / Back End scenario
for our Exchange system. Currently, we are running Exchange 2000
Enterprise on a Windows 2000 advanced (non clustered) server.

I have some questions that I was wondering if someone might be able to
assist me with.

1.  Which server machine, Front or Back, should be more powerful?

2. We currently have in production a "Webserver", which hosts our
Website. Is it possible to make this machine also a Front End server?

3. Is it true an organization can have one front-End Server and several
back end servers (for different organizations / domains)? We want to
have two independent mail systems

4. How easy / difficult is it to migrate / move from our current
structure of one Email server to Front-End / Back End

5. Has anybody had experience with Front-End / Back-End? Any feedback
would be appreciated.

 

Thanks for your time.

Regards,

Mark
