One tool that would be useful for this project would a server to test, develop and demo on, even better a server capable of runnin a number of VPS for testing different versions of exchange etc. If anyone knows any providers who would be willing to provide a server either discounted, or preferably free, let me know. Obviously these providers may be looking to offer their own Exchange services in the future and be in need of a control panel, assisting our development is only going to get that quicker!

Well the scope of this project can only be Exchange 2007 and when Exchange 2010 is released that as well since Exchange 2003 does not support PowerShell. I could see that there might be differences for those that have IIS running on a Windows Server 2003/R2 versus a Windows Server 2008/R2 install.


I certainly don't have this to offer. I have a live environment that I can partition off some parts for testing but that is all.

Yep, I agree that we are only really looking at Exchange 2007 and 2010. Ideally we would have a couple of test vm's and some demo vm's to show off what we have done. I am investigating some options in this area.

An option that may be useful for demoing or group testing etc may be to use a cloud server setup. Creating a standard Exchange image and spinning it up for the time we need, so only paying for that time.
