Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003

Posted on 2005-05-03
Last Modified: 2010-04-18
I come from Domino's world and I'm new to Exchange. I have to replace an old Windows NT 4.0 server running Exchange 5.5.

The new server will be running Windows 2003 SB Premiun Edition and I'll have to move the actual mailboxes and settings from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003.

I wonder if anyone has done this in the past and can provide valuable advice to a rookie.

Thanks in advance

    There is an official MS guide here:

    There is no major difference in the pricess between SBS 4.5 - SBS 2003 as to NT4.0/Ex5.5 - either SBS 2003 or W2k3/Ex2k3

    Thanks to both.

    Harleyjd, I couldn't find the article.

    Finally, any good web/video  training on Exchange 2003 you can suggest?

    Thanks again

    use this one - it's the second link

    As I said, it is SBS, but its lessons are an excellent how-to guide for all platforms...
