What is the cost of installing an Exchange 2003 server into a current Exchange 2007 environment?
I need to use the EX2K3 server to act as a bridgehead for miration purposes from Groupwise 7 to EX2K7.

Thanks for any help!

Did you have an Exchange 2003 server in the site before installing Exchange 2007?
If not then you cannot install Exchange 2003 in to an Exchange 2007 domain.

In that case you are going to have to build a new forest, put Exchange 2003 in to it, export the content to mailboxes on Exchange 2003 and then export them out again to be imported in to the Exchange 2007 domain. I cannot think of any other way of doing it.

So if I built another domain and installed EX2K3, that would be a possible solution?
