  • Hi:

    No, those are "not essential".  <g>.  It is anticipated that email and sharepoint would be provided by a hosting solution or additional servers in house.

    You can, for about another year, purchase SBS 2011 which does include Exchange and Sharepoint, and will be supported until "about" 2020.

  • It also provides the option to have an On Premises Exchange Server integrated to the Dashboard - but requires that you run this on a seperate server (VM or Physical) and you must of course purchase the licensing/software.
