A client has an old Windows 2000 system which uses a hardware email box
(Equinet Net Pilot Enterprise). As well as providing internal emails, the
hardware email box also handles email traffic between the W2000 system and a
second, separate legacy system over a static routed interconnect set up in
the W2000 network's router.
We are trying to assess whether the Windows 2000 system can be replaced with
a Windows SBS 2008 system, with email being handled by Exchange on the SBS
2008 server. Unfortunately we are still stuck with the second legacy system
which has to remain unchanged so we need to provide the same email
interconnectivity with it.
We understand that there are restrictions on the degree of trust between the
SBS2008 network and other subnets to which it may be attached. SBS2008
otherwise looks perfect for the needs of this system, but do these
restrictions rule out configuring an SBS2008 system to handle the setup I
Thanks for any help,
