I am doing a 2000 to 2003 migration. To my understanding I need to upgrade the 2000 front end to 2003 first. My question is can I then leave the back end 2000 for a few days while I build the new 2003 exchange server on the back end? Or will I have problems with the 2003 front end and 2000 back end?

Thank you all.
