comment Amavis and Postfix VirusMails
looks exactly like what I'm looking for however the command doesn't seem to exist on my system. amavisd-new-2.5.3 is the running version.

comment Using Exchange but not storing email
Oh yeh, thats probably the easiest; just set up the server; create your user accounts and then use a program like fetchmail running on a a linux box to pull down mail, I know exchange used to have a tool inbuilt but i'm unsure as to its status. Google "Exchange IMAP connector" should start you down the right path.

comment Using Exchange but not storing email
IMHO if you can drop exchange onto the AD controller (not best practice I know but assuming you don't can't run up another machine to take the role) set up 2 or 3 users and test. What you want is possible (but not as clean as an all out exchange enviro). User testing is the only thing that will tell you if your users are ok with the way it works. Alternatively you could go full exchange and use a tool to download all mail from their IMAP boxes to the exchange server and leave a copy on the mothership's server.

comment Using Exchange but not storing email
Exchange functions with SSO on their domain login; if they are authenticated on the domain server for their workstation then they are authenticated to the exchange server (assuming your desktops are connected to the windows 2008 server) so no "second" account there. The calendaring would only work internally and I would guess that Outlook would default to using exchange to transport those messages. However if an external appointment request came in via imap it would end up on the exchange calendar as it's the default.

Doesn't indicate the "mothership" uses exchange, they may well not.

comment How do I best archive VMWare VMs for reuse?
I've done this and it works but if your xfring a lot or want to do it in a more automated fashion I'd recommend enabling SFTP on the ESX host and using either WinSCP or SFTP to pull the images down. I've found it faster and more reliable.

comment Best Practices? Send Mail from Web App
most sane anti-spam uses multiple checks and balances with certain factors attributed weights, if you fix enough anomalies you might be able to slip in but if the sending domain has an SPF record, you definitely want get your IP listed in it.

comment Move VMware Server 2.0 Image to ESXi
I've always been able to get away with it as most of the time they are quite good with backward compatibility and the vhd images rarely change. The converter is a much better idea but I've had a few scenarios where that hasn't been an option for a raft of reasons.

comment Can not ssh into ubuntu server using <servername>.local (on one server but not the other)
If you want to go the extra mile assigning static IPs from the DHCP server and then setting up a DNS server would be a good way. However I'd always suggest static IPs for servers as when your DNS server breaks and they lose their lease you tend to walk into the unknown.
