Moving Exchange 2003

Our Exchange 2003 server is old and slow.  I have installed a second server and brought it up as a Second Exchange server.  I would like to move all the data and info store over to this new server, then change all the users to point to this new server, then decommission the old server.

The issue is I cant seem to find any good documentation on how to do this, and I do not have any room for error (well, not much room).

Any help would be appreciated.

With new servers the key thing is to take your time. As long as you get the prep correct, up to the point of moving the mailboxes you haven't done anything to harm existing data.
The other key thing is to ensure that both the old and new servers have a good period of running in parallel, that way you be sure that you have got everything across and all Outlook installations will redirect correctly.

You already have the link to my guide, above, but any questions on it, post back.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!
