Hello,

The current server for my small business (< 10 users) is getting old and I
believe it is time to upgrade.  This server currently has Windows 2000
Server and Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 loaded.  I am considering getting
Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 (Standard), because it is considerably
cheaper (for 10 users anyway) than buying Windows 2003 Standard plus
Exchange 2003 Standard.

What are the pros and cons of buying just SBS vs buying Windows Server and
Exchange separately?

Thanks,

Tom
