I've got a windows 2000 domain right now that was running sendmail for email.  I changed ISPs, and in the proces, changed email apps, and am now using Windows 2003 / Exchange 2003.  Right now, I'm running this server seperate from my local domain, and I have everyone popping there email down from this new exchange box.  I recreated the users in the new active directory so that email would function, now that this is out of the way, I'm ready for the next step.

Now, would it be easiest in terms of user experience for me to have the users start to log onto a different domain(my new exchange 03 box) and then migrate over my other servers(all win 2K), but then I'd have to recreate the permissions on teh shares, Etc..  What's the easiest way to integrate this new scenario...

The easiest way would be to leave the Exchange where it is =) and setup a domain trust between the DC's using the AD Domains and Trusts.

But the "right" way would be to migrate them over using the following information:
