    have you ever heard of a business storing all emails locally even though they have shared network drives and have a server fully capable of running exchange?

    My past company was an ISP and web/email hosting company. Ran Communigate software hosting about 250 domains or so, but everything for the company ran on it also and it was all POP mail. Nothing left on the server.

    It's not a must - But as Rob says, you don't get the full advantage of using Outlook if you don't use it (meetings, shared contact lists, shedules...). You can get by without it if these things aren't necessary - less than 40 people is quite doable.

    but what about keeping data? doesnt having an exchange server allow backup of the pst files without having any data loss due to the user?
