hello, I want to setup an exchange email hosting server. I already have lots of demands so I need to do it...

what exacly do I need in order to do this:

I have an serve r2008 standard r2 licence already.
I may buy an exchange server 2010 licence.

Do I need something else in order to setup different organizations?

Hi,
Yes after setting up your exchange server u will need a SSL certificate to put it on CAS services like OWA and ActiveSyc. You can also use your own certificate authority but buying a third party SSL is always a good choice.
Also you will have to purchase MS Exchange CAL licenses for each of the user or device connecting to your exchange server.

Also have a look on this thread:

Exchange 2010 is not yet multi-tenant ready. If you want to go down this route, you will need a provisioning engine like Ensim that current does enable your Exchange for multiple orgs, but it it not recommended at this stage.

I agree with Casper. Hosting multiple organization will definitely need address list segregation which is 100% unsupported at this moment. MS seems to be working on guidelines to configure address list segregation though. Please see http://blogs.msdn.com/dgoldman/archive/2010/01/06/exchange-2010-address-list-segregation-as-of-now-is-100-unsupported.aspx
I would strongly suggest to stand by and wait till you hear an official announcement on this.Milind Naphade | MCTS:M (Exchange 2007 and 2010) | http://www.msexchangegeek.com http://www.msexchangegeek.com/?feed=rss

Auch that hurts.

OK so here is what I have so far.

1 piece server 2008 r2 standard licence
1 piece ssl certificate purchased.

Exchange 2010 is not a must have, we are planning to add more servers in future so I guess the 1st one could stay on exchange 2007.

I am still not cleared about the CAL liceinsing, is there a way to buy unlimite stuff? are this cal licences have to be purchased besite the huge priced exchange server?

There is no mention of unlimited CAL purchase on MS site:

Yes you have to purchase the CAL for users and devices u provision on exchange. Plz have a look on the link on my previous post. It contains very informative discussion regarding the subject.

So, if you want to host Exchange for external users, you have to have a SPLA license (Service Provider License Agreement).

It works a bit different from a normal CAL but is a must should you wish to sell hosted services.Casper Pieterse, Principle Consultant - UC, Dimension Data South Africa, Microsoft Certified Master: Exchange 2007
