I am setting up an Exchange 2005 server for my organization. Do I need two servers for a front end and a back end machine? I only have been allocated one machine. Is this ok?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes you can install all the roles onto the same server.

********
Do you mean Exchange 2003 or 2007? There is no 2005. 2003 has front end and back end roles, but 2007 has Hub and CAS roles. If 2003, there is no front end role to install if you are only installing one server. A front end role server would be a separate server altogether and is not required. Please clarify the version you are installing. Thanks.

    With Exchange 2003 the front end server role is not a required server. You can have a stand alone mailbox server only. OWA works on the mailbox server in a stand alone server environment. There is no Front End "role" to install in that case.
