We currently have a w2k domain, that i have joined a w2k3 enterprise server as a member server. I have succesfully installed exchange into our organisation, and see both servers within ESM. I have moved a test mailbox and my own onto the new exchange (exchange enterpise 2003). I can send and receive emails fine. However whenever i first load up outlook, it says that it is retrieving information from server02(the new email server). It does this everytime i open up outlook. This takes around thirty seconds. It does not do this on our old exchange server 2000.
Is this normal? is it because the global catalog etc are on the old server and that it takes a little longer to authenticate?
