Thanks for the comments so far. For further clarification,  if I get rid of the groups then create an ID for each mailbox.  How do I then emulate the group scenario in Exchange 2000????




Currently planning to migrate from Exchange 5.5 to 2K.

First I have 5.5 mail boxes owned by groups. How do I migrate these with regards to the one to one mailbox to account mapping.

Second, can you reccomend a configuration for the server.  The 5.5 server currently has 300 users and 10Gb data.
How should I configure the disks, raid 5 or 1 etc and where do I put the logs.

Thanks for any help....

RAID5 is the best and safest configuration.  I would go with at least 30G of space if you not have 10G.

Get rid of the groups and create a ID for each mailbox to start.  Is your environment Native or Mixed mode W2k?

Raid 1 for System and Log files
Raid 5 for databases.

Sample
5 9.1 Scsi drives
2 Mirrored 9.1GB  Make that C:\ and E:\ drive
or just make C:\ drive 9.1GB

3 drives Raid 5 for a 18GB D:\ drive.
