Well I was hoping to have my mail sent through dreamhost servers so it could be marked with the domain name.
As for throwing money away, yeah, I suppose, if you consider $24 throwing money away. Thats the charge for window SBS 2003 non-profit price from techsoup.org. They wanted compatability and outlook calendaring so I figured I’d set that up with that even though I’ve never done anything like this before. Its a foster family agency just looking to have the computers networked to share resources like printers, and wanting to have email and calendar stuff setup.
MS makes things a lot harder than they have to be I can tell you that. Dont get me started on how atrocious thier SP1 process is for SBS 2003. The windows update only gives you the 1st of 5 updates required, and that update screws everything up (like add user doesn’t work anymore), until you finish the rest of the 5 needed updates which are NOT availible in windows update, only by manually searching out knowledge base articles.
