I have one Exchange server 2003 with two domains ( and  I need to move to a 2007 exchange server, leaving on the old 2003 exchange.  I do not need to upgrade the old 2003 exchange server, I need to leave it alone but pull the to a new 2007 exchange.  
1. Do I need to add the new 2007 exchange into the existing 2003 exchange.
2. Can I do a compete standalone install of exchange 2007 and then import the mailboxes from into this new exchange 2007, leaving the old 2003 exchange to manage the mailboxes.

    You can only do a standalone installation of Exchange 2007 if you have a seperate forest for it. If you do not, then you will have to put Exchange 2007 in to your current Exchange 2003 org.
