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 


Thanks for your time.
