On my previews post, I promise you that will see step by step the process ofExchange Server 2013 Preview installation in Windows Server 2012.
The new Exchange Server 2013, split in 2 roles Client Access Server and Mailbox Server (In addition, Exchange 2013 Preview works with the Exchange 2010 Edge server role.) The Mailbox server includes all the traditional server components found in Exchange 2010: the Client Access protocols, Hub Transport service, Mailbox databases, and Unified Messaging. The Mailbox server handles all activity for a given mailbox. The Client Access server provides authentication, redirection, and proxy services.
