Exchange Servers Admin >> Accessing Exchange 2000 from workgroup

We hawe few workstations on network, but we use workgroup instead of
Windows domain. What I need to know is if it is possible to use Exchange
2000 for sharing contacts and calendar, or users and computers have to
be members of Windows domain? Would just defining users in Active
Directory allow access?
Thanks.

Exchange Servers Admin >> Accessing Exchange 2000 from workgroup In order to even install Exchange you have to have domain. But you can use
Exchange services from machines which are not port of domain. Just create
users in AD and make sure passwords match (if you wish).

Exchange is instaled on an exisitng domain, but all of the workstatoins
are still in a workgoup (domain is used only for Exchange server for
now), and will remain there for some time. Is there a way to access this
server form these workstations? When I try to add Exchange Server
service in Outlook, I'm prompted for username, domain and password.
Problem is that domain name is longer that 15 characters (limit of input
field).
