I will admit that I’m more of a Linux person when it comes to web servers, so please bear with me

  1. Is MSSQL Express ok to use for SolidCP deployment or is it recommended to have the expensive licensed version?
  2. I do not have an Exchange Mail Server and see the other options on the software page but I have not used any of them so what is a reliable mail server option that won’t break the bank?
  3. What SPAM/Virus software for end users email in/out?

I’m just looking for suggestions on what others are using and then can investigate further based on that, but like I mentioned I’m pretty new to Windows web server stuff and rather not use another product PL*** but it does include many things I asked about above.
