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.

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.

Simon.
