Exchange 2003 switch over from Merak Mail Server
Posted on 2006-04-26
Good Afternoon Experts,
I am in the process of upgrading the company e-mail system. Currently we use Merak Mail Server. We have grown to the point where exchange is now a viable solution. I have installed a beast of a system and added it to our Windows Server 2000 Network (two domain controllers) I installed Exchange 2003 on a Server 2003 OS and everything is working fine.
Now I am somewhat stuck. I have never set this up before and my company will not send me to training. We currently have our mail server set up as follows: mail.domain.com
Everyone in the company, with the exception of a few people use Merak's webmail for everyday use. Currently they click on a link on there desktop or type into the browser:
This takes them to a login screen and off they go. The current mail server is not only a mail server so sadly I can not give my new exchange server the same IP. So my question is: What would be the easiest approach to one morning everyone in the company comes into work, clicks on the above link and it takes them to an OWA login page? Also what will be the best way to accomplish this without losing any incoming mail?
Thanks in advance for your help!
