Can I setup Microsoft Exchange in a workgroup?

Workgroup
For one of the projects I'm working on, our site currently has around 15 PCs (XP/Vista/7 and one file server running Windows Server 2008. They use externally-hosted email (accessed in Outlook via IMAP) but I would like to have an Exchange server in order to centralize Outlook contacts/calendar info and get web access from OWA. Can Exchange be set up in a workgroup, or if I set up a domain with the new Exchange server? Would any of these options work? Thanks so much for your help.

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

Exchange doesn’t support running in a workgroup. It has to be installed
within a domain. Without the clients computers connected to the domain
(as home OSs don’t support connecting to a domain) the users will need
to authenticate against the domain every time Outlook opens.
