comment How can I find which client(s) is causing my distribution update to fail?
-1, this is a client causing this problem more than likely, but individually perusing 3000 clients for logs indicating something that should already be known to the distribution point is insane. I know what to expect, this is not a question that requires a vague answer, or even a question that can benefit from a vague answer. It's a very specific question.

...trying to justify a use for all 4 ports because you think you have to, otherwise they're wasted.. agreed, instead, think of them as upgrade potential.

comment Is showing E-Mail Inline Attachments in Exchange/Outlook a bad practice?
yep, in addition if the OPs org doesn't force one, it'll be whatever the user has installed :-(, so maybe he could enable inline viewing w/ a forced viewer that doesn't automatic execute PDF code?

comment Is showing E-Mail Inline Attachments in Exchange/Outlook a bad practice?
that's true, good point, but I think (could be wrong here) Outlook's default PDF viewer is Adobe Reader, should you have it installed.

comment Remote Server Administration Tools - Granular permission
Brad, welcome to the site, what _exactly is it you want to prevent them from administering? The reason I ask is that some stuff might fall under MS' Role Based Administration, and thus make things a bit easier for you.

comment Which ports are required in order to authenticate against a ldap server in another domain which is behind a firewall?
+1, but he might also want to check w/ the firewall admin on the NY side to make sure they're doing things standard and not doing some freaky port forwarding, or the like.

comment On-site and off-site OS X Sever
Jason welcome to ServerFault. As asked, this type of question isn't a good fit for the site. The best thing to do is break this up into smaller, more specific questions, and also take a look at the best way to ask those questions here. In addition, I'd have to say self hosted email probably isn't necessary these days, given the vastness of cloud storage in comparison. I do wish you success with the company though.
