I have two servers one with OS Windows 2003 Server Std 64x and second having Small Business Server. I want to install CRM 4.0 Professional edition (64 bit) on first server having Windows 2003 Server. On second machine having SBS OS i have exchange 2003. I want to know weather CRM 4.0 willl connect to Exchange 2003 which is on SBS 2003 machine. Does R2 of SBS 2003 need to be installed? or any patches i required? Actally i don't want to replace my SBS machine...or there are any other options for installing CRM 4.0 so that i have not replace SBS 2003.
If you have any suggestions - please help.
Thanks in Advance

You can check following documentation for Exchange and CRM 4.0 , I dont think its not supported Exchange 2003.

CRM 4.0 will work with Exchange 2003. The CRM 4.0 E-mail Router can work with Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2007 or no Exchange at all (it can use POP3 accounts).
You should as a matter of course install the latest OS and Exchange updates.
CRM 4.0 does require SQL 2005 and won't work with SQL 2000, so if you want to use your SBS Server and you have the premium edition then you will need R2 to get the SQL 2005 Workgroup edition.
On the other hand if you are installing SQL 2005 on your Windows Server then you won't need R2 on your SBS server.
Make sure that the Windows 2003 Server is a member of the SBS domain.
