    If you can sell the cost of the attached storage by pushing high
availability, then you should definitely go with an Exchange Cluster.
You also have to factor the cost for 2 Enterprise licenses.  It is not
hard to set up, and runs great.  If you read the documentation on
Microsoft Clusters it will not be a problem for you.  Plus the install
of Exchange 2003 Enterprise is cluster aware.    I have users in 6
offices spread over the USA using outlook xp, and we have no performance
issues.  We have point to point T1's to all locations.  
I assume then that your users are not connected to your network with
some kind of VPN solution?  If that is correct, then maybe you should
look at getting SonicWall devices for all sites, then you could have a
tunnel open for all remote sites.  There are other solutions out there,
I'm just partial to SonicWall since that's what we have.
If you need more info, feel free to email me.

        Hi Folks, 


        We are a manufacturing facility having 4 locations in the
country and approximately 150 users spread around. I need to design a
simple and cost effective Exchange Mail solution. Also need to use ISA
for Internet control and firewall functions. I need to keep in mind
about our upgrade next year for an ERP Solution. I also want to
centralise the Exchange server. All 4 locations have their own seperare
LAN with ADSL connection. 


        I had been doing a lot of reading on sites but I would like to
listen abt real world scenario's. Also is RPC over HTTPS is good ?
