Exchange deployment

I am going to be deploying Exchange 2003 on an existing network running AD soon. Does anybody know of any reliable online checklists that i could use. I have a few of the MS tools but is there anything like 3 rd party checklist that goes through thoroughly to check the existing network and any other information such as MX records that we would require from the client.

Many thanks in advance.

    When you install Exchange it provides its own check-list which from my opinion is sufficient. I know you want to do this right the first time but if you have too much info you will start confusing yourself.

    hmm nothing will autp check for you for dns side of things - make sure you host and mx is configured and that port 25 is forwarded through to the server and 80 and 443 for OWA
