I have a client who has Windows Server 2003 STD and Exchange 2003 but would like to move to SBS 2003 STD.
They currently have one Xeon server with Windows Server 2003 STD and a second server with Exchange 2003 installed on it.
I would like to install SBS 2003 onto the server that is currently the exchange 2003 server (fresh install) and use the 2003 server as a redundant server.

1) Can I move all the pertinent Exchange 2003 info over to SBS 2003 exchange? In other words can it be done and Will it work?
2) How do I go about this?

Thank you for your help,

Brian

You can do it, but it will be a pain.

You will have to export all the mailboxes using exmerge.
The contents of the public folders will have to be manually moved to a pst file.

Once you are sure that you have all the data out, flatten both machines and install SBS. Recreate the user account and then import the content.
Timing will be crucial - if you are caught for time, get new email working first, leave importing existing content until later.
