I have seen companies running SBS and using ISP mail accounts when exchange
is part of SBS, madness! Also they have not got ISA configured correctly,
assuming correctly does not involve a rules allowing all traffic from all
sources to flow bi-directionally. People that set up servers like that
should be shot, or at least not allowed to practise as consultants.
Personally, I think anybody who sells and setsup a business with SBS should be shot. Starting with SBS4, it's been a
piece of crap. Now to add insult to injury, they put ISA server in there and force you to put your firewall on the
same box your database server is on. By license, you cannot put it on a seperate box if you wanted to. Another sign
of the total cluelessness of MS on security.

If you spend more on coffee than on IT security, you will be hacked.
What's more, you deserve to be hacked.
