First question: Why do you want to willing put other services on ISA server,
which is a firewall? You should only put what you have to on there for
security and performance.

Second question: Are you aware the Exchange needs resources? Therefore,
unless you have too, it should be on its on box.

Third question: An AD server, even if not using extra roles, does do a far
amount of work. Why do you want this server to be a domain controller?


How much mail traffic?
How much storage space do you need for mail?
