    SBS is a strange critter. I don't believe you can do what you would like to do with SBS. Normally you would place Exchange into a front end (FE)/Back end (BE) situation. OWA is run on the FE machine, getting the mailbox information from the BE.I don't know that you can do this with SBS. I've not seen any write ups on it. You may need to migrate away from SBS to Server 2003R2 to accomplish this, a neat trick in itself since SBS does not like other domain contollers. It can be done, though I never have, and is documented onthe Microsoft site. You might want to mine Microsoft for any information about what you would like to do. Since I've not been faced with that, I've not gone out of my way to look for it. It may be posible, but from what I know about SBS, I don't think so.

    I have found some data and it seems according to MS that on the member server in the network all i need to do is run Exchange server install and only select the OWA portion and make sure that IIS has the FP extensions etc. i will be trying this tomorrow afternoon and i will post my findings at the end of the day.

    You should be able to just install E2K3 on the member and then switch it to a Front-end server in the ESM. That switches the main functionality off and just leaves it enabled as an OWA proxy server. I think the aricle you saw to just install OWA was from 5.5.
