Design the mailbox server role

  • Plan database sizing; storage performance requirements such as I/O and disk latency requirements; multi-domain; multi-forest; resource forest; public folders; design recipient, distribution group, and mailbox provisioning and deprovisioning policies (on-premises and/or cloud-based services)

Design client access
