Optimal Active Directory and Exchange role setup with 3 servers

http://serverfault.com – A new guy is here :) I have a discussion on this topic scheduled for mid-August, and I'd like to see how much I'm prepared and how many things I actually got right :) Also, how much more I need to learn on the subject :) The situation is the following: There are 5 servers available to me, all with 8 CPU cores and 16 GB of RAM. I will need to set up an Active Directory environment that will have an Exchange Server member server. Of course, it will only need to be functional for me to send a test message with it and prove the concept, but it should also theoretically be enough to run with 10 (HowTos)
