Migrating remote users into Exchange Server 2003 from POP

What would be the best practice for migrating users into Exchange Server 2003 from POP?  The users are all based in Ireland and we & the Exchange Server are situated in England.  There is only a 1MB (if we're lucky) connection between the two sites, Ireland also has a 2003 Server DC.  Can anyone suggest how this is best performed?

Kind Regards

well, this is a fairly big question for 50 points, but there are a few ways to do this.

1) install a 2nd Exchange server at the other site, and replicate between the 2 servers
2) have a router to router VPN between the 2 sites and use 1 exchange server
3) have a 2nd exchange server and do something like this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321721(this is for SBS but may give you some ideas)

There maybe some better ideas for this, but if not, good luck :)

Just one final question? The server here is Enterprise, however we do hav another licence for 2003 Standard, could this be used in Ireland as you suggest or would mixing Standard 2003 & Enterprise 2003 not be adivsed? (We have 4 storage groups setup at present in Enterprise)

Forced accept.
