    Re: MS Exchange

    Can't think why it would stop you, though you never know.... I guess you mean Exchange 2013.

    Have to wonder why, as exchange 2010 at least is memory hungry proggy, not too easy on the CPU either and I'm talking <10 mailboxes.

    Regardless, good luck.

    Re: MS Exchange

    Are you looking to get experience of Exchange in particular, or is this to run your own email server? If the former, do yourself a favour - run it on Server 2012 (preferably) or Server 2008 R2 SP1. Only the Management Tools are supported on Windows 8 (2010 SP3 or 2013 CU1). If you have MSDN or other access to Exchange licensing, then you have access to the correct supported Server OS to run it on.

    If you just want some 'flight time' with Exchange, check out the TechNet Virtual Labs: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/virtuallabs/bb499043

    Re: MS Exchange

    Don't think so about Exchange on windows 8 anyway - see system requirements

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/l...xchg.150).aspx

    Apart from that you need a Windows Active Drirectory / domain structure to make it work (OK pedants - not strictly true, but it won't do much without).

    Best bet to try it out is get a virtual machine fired up with a Windows server eval version.

    Exchange is not a 'home user' email server. If you want to send email from your PC set up the Windows inbuilt free SMTP server and read up online guidea about avoiding becoming an open relay....

    If you're wanting to tinker then you'll be wanting to install the Hyper-V role and use the VHD eval from http://blogs.technet.com/b/nawar/arc...0-sp1-vhd.aspx - should give you enough to get some idea as to what you're looking at.

    What are you planning to do or use Microsoft Exchange for?

    MS Exchange server cannot be installed on Windows client desktop only Exchange Remote Management tools can be installed. If you are planning to learn then best thing to do is use virtualisation software to create your own virtual lab environment. You cannot install MS Exchange without a domain controller as Exchange relies on Active Directory to create mailbox, email groups and authentication plus much more.

    If you are planning to do a mail relay then you do not need MS exchange for that.
