Hello All

I have been searching Google and reading everything I find, but I can't find any definitive answers.

I would like to purchase a Mac mini with Snow Leopard Server and run Mail, ICal, Address book, Wiki and such. I'm trying to avoid the cost of Exchange 2010 with hardware around $3500 for 20 users.

My question... is it possible to use the Apple server Mini to run mail, calendar and contacts but yet have PC's access it using Outlook 2007 and web access. Most of the users in the company have IPhones as well. 1000.00 is a great price if this is possible. No Mac's in the company, just PC's. They have a Windows Server 2008SP2 Standard, running on a fast Dell T710 server.

Works like ham. Except windows 7. You can set home folders on mac server then easyly make backup in time machine of all data inclu users data. . Ofcourse it s a little tricky to install that.
One of my customers have 18 PC's in 2 locations, conected on vpn tunell and works on mac mini.
