    Good Morning

    I have recently taken over the IT in this company

    They are running SBS 11 which is end of life

    I want to do a migration away from this I have already partially done the Active directory but have not done the FSMO roles due to Exchange being on there

    The old setup is follows

    SBS 11
    Core i3 CPU
    12GB RAM (server runs high usage)
    Exchange 2010 Standard (SBS)
    Dynamic IP Using Dyn DNS
    POP3 connector that downloads mails to Exchange
    Smart host SMTP Connector

    I dont understand how the receive connectors were setup on this as this is a weird setup to me which I am not used to in Exchange
    DNS on NIC is the servers internal DNS and the router

    I want to setup a new Exchange 2013 server which is dedicated only to Exchange
    Intel Xeon 5160 CPU
    Third Party POP3 Connector (although I would like to let the mail flow directly)
    Still using Dynamic IP (Director will not change)
    Exchange 2013 Standard
    Smart host SMTP

    I want to ensure that the 2013 server can also send out mails with out interfering with SBS for testing purposes so I can ensure that the Exchange works properly.before migrating the users over.

    I know this is not the ideal situation but will have to make do

    The reason I am also aiming for Exchange 2013 because of its antispam and no they do not want to go office 365
