Ok, I've installed Exchange 2007 on a Windows 2003 server which is a member server.  This new server is running in conjunction with an old Exchange 2000 server, on a win 2k server.  I see that Exchange 2007 server has populated itself with a list of all mailbox and public folders and dist. groups, etc.  But are these real mailboxes or just representations?  What else must i do now to bring the data over for real?  

There is a move mailbox wizard, but when i do that, it tells me that if I will have to move the mailbox from the first storage group to another one, but there is only one option there.   How do i create a second storage group?

Anything else i must do now, besides moving the mailboxes over?  Is getting the ex 2007 server to send and receive internet e-mail simple?  What steps to take?  Thanks, and sorry, I'm totally new to 2007, but have previous exch 2000, 5.5, and 2003 experience. Thanks in advance, I really appreciate it.

Everyone is new to E2007. It is only a few months old and many sites are waiting for the service pack and the third parties to catch up (if you are a Blackberry user you cannot even deploy it at the moment).

The only instructions that I am aware of (until the E2007 books flood the market any day now) is in the release notes for E2007.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2600CAB1-BF60-49BD-BEF5-CB80083275AD&DisplayLang=en

Something is supposed to be going in to the official documentation, and I will get round to my own guide.

There isn't the quantity of the content for E2007 yet, give it time it will arrive eventually. Remember E2000/2003 is basically seven years old, a lot of content can be written in seven years.
