Re: [K12OSN] smbldap with exchange mail server



Because of Exchange's reliance on AD,  you will have to replace before removing AD.  I suggest setting up  vmware virtual environment (sandbox) for proof-of-concept testing  to map out your migration strategy.

I am willing to give up Exchange.  I was just hoping to take it one step at a time.  Toying with user authentication is risky enough (and a big enough job) without throwing email into the mix as well.
