Some reading would be good.

That said, here's a few things to consider:

Win95 can access OWA; more importantly, it's IE5.5 which works with OWA.
One server should be fine and it *could* be your Active Directory and
Exchange server. However, there are some risks that need to be understood
with that.  Read the docs for more information.

HTTPS is a best practice.  Better practice is to use ISA to secure it :)

I would use a public cert, but you could gen your own certs for HTTPS if you

Subject: [exchangelist] Deploying Exchange 2003


I have been asked to setup an Exchange 2003 server for a company. They want
web access only, from inside (local lan) and outside (remote internet
users). Their infrastructure is NT4, Win2k and Novell with 60 clients most
of which are on windows 95 and old slow equipment. They are looking for the
web access so they can keep the old equipment in place while using IE to
access the mail. Can anyone give me an idea of what is involved in setting
this up? Some questions I have are as follows:

1. Can Win95 access W2k3 via owa internally as well as externally 2. Will IE
5.5 work on win95 clients connecting to W2k3 3. Do I need 2 servers, a front
end and back end 4. Will I need to install AD if it is not already installed
within the infrastructure.
5. Is it best practice to run HTTPS?
6. Do I need to run certificate services

Thank you,
