RE: Recommendations for small office

What is the WAN connectivity like?  

For such small satellite offices, a central server might be more efficient. 

Thinking of backups, maintenance, license costs, hardware....

Hi,

We have a couple of small offices with about fifteen to twenty staff in
each. The offices are linked into our corporate WAN.  They  have been
running for some time in a workgroup model but it is time they were upgraded
to client/server, as well as a more robust email solution.

One option is to install a small Windows/Exchange server in each office to
provide file&print, as well as provide email services.
What hardware would you recommend for a single server running Windows
2003 and Exchange 2003?  I do not intend to install SBS as the server would
be part of our corporate AD infrastructure.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts,
Adrian
