Well, if it's practical at this point, I'd be happier running an ADS - 
in particular, unless I've missed something, this would enable me to set 
group policies for the client machines, which is potentially quite 
useful. I suppose the question, then, is the S4+S3 combination

Fortunately, email is currently a completely separate system, hosted 
off-site, so I don't immediately need to worry about it :) Hadn't heard 
of the Openchange project before, though - will look into it with interest.

I meant to mention before, by the way, that I obviously do intent to set 
up a test network rather than sticking any solution straight into 
production, so there shouldn't be any concerns on that score.
