Well we have separate machine running our BES 4.0.x server, I just thought that when you installed BES (obviously I have never installed it before) it also installed some kind of plugin to talk with your Exchange server?

The problem is our Exchange server was initially setup on on AD server which was causing us problems (the previous CTO set it up that way) so I installed a new AD and moved all the roles off the Exchange AD including the GC to the new box. Anyhow once we removed Exchange from AD our .net stuff for OWA got a screwed, BES is emails are working still, and normal internal/external emails are working. So its said that I need to uninstall Exchange and reinstall is using the /disasterrecovery option, but I was thinking of playing it safe and building new Exchange and moving everything from the old box to the new one before removing the old box. I just don't know how it's going to effect BES?

Any ideas?
