I've been told that I need a static IP address in order to set up Microsoft Exchange Server on my Small Business Windows 2003 server. Is this correct ?

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

Of course. You always want your servers to have static IPs…never DHCP. Additionally, I’m pretty sure Exchange 5.5 wont let you install it without a static IP.

    Yes, that's 100% correct. The server running Exchange Server 5.5 must have a static IP address.

    Sorry to confuse everyone, but my question should have read "do I need a static IP address from my ISP in order to run Microsoft Exchange Server" I actually have a static IP address set for the server on my LAN. Also is there an easy way to identify the version of Microsoft Exchange that is loaded. I understand that Microsoft Exchange 5.5 or Microsoft 2000 are not compatible with Windows 2003 - and that I need MS Exchange 2003- Big thanks for all your help

    Of course you dont't need a static IP address from your ISP in order to run your Exchange Server. You only need static IP address (and corresponding DNS record at your ISP for that address)if you want your server to be publicly accessible (if you want your users to be able to send/receive mail with the outside world). If you are going to use the service for internal purposes only (I'm not sure if that makes any sense at all), then you don't need static IP address.
