Here is a question from a client of mine:


Exchange 2003 Enterprise on Windows 2000 Server. Point to point T-1's
between the two sites in question.


If I have Exchange server A in Dallas, and Exchange server B in Montana,
user mailboxes would normally reside on only one server, correct? If I lost
server A to a flood, it's users are SOL, correct? Can server A's mailboxes
be replicated on server B to avoid that situation, or would that be
considered setting up a cluster. I guess I'm trying to accomplish mailboxes
in two locations for redundancy. Any thoughts?


How about this one?


If I create a public folder for a project, so that all users can store their
correspondence in that folder for collaboration, can I keep the 'data' for
that project on a file server and somehow 'link' the two? I'd rather not
store GB's of data in an Exchange store. Is this a crazy question?


Can the list help be answer this one???
