I'm planning a Notes to Exchange migration and wanted to make sure the Transporter Suite for Lotus Domino will work with Exchange 2003?  The document is only about 2007.

Thank you

You can probably get some of it working, but it is really designed for 2007. The 2003 Connector, whioch is replaced by Transporter, has three components:

1) A directory sync so both directories have all users form beginning of migration to end of migration
2) A calendar connector so users on each system can check free time of users on the opposing system
3) A mail connector that converts messages in transit from one system to the other, so that users can send mail to the opposing systems

Transporter replaces these with:
1) The same directory sync, with some modified sync parameters -- this shoudl still run
2) A similar calendar connector, but it will not run in a 2003 environment, I would think
3) Configuration instructions for allowing messages to be traded between the systems using their native SMTP support, sinetad of a proprietary MTA and conversion routine

Because of #3 changes, #1 is changed so that the users synced to their opposing systems appear as regular SMTP users, and not addressing specific to Domino or Exchange.

In addition, Transporter has acocunt migration programs that directly replace those included in 2003, with one major addition: a desktop tool, so that data that resides on the user's Notes desktop can be converted by the user. 2003 had no such piece. I do not know whether this new tool requires Outlook 2007, or whether it can work with Outlook 2003.

So, if you don't need the calendar connector, you can PROBABLY modify the 2003 directory sync to work like the 2007 directory sync, and use the same instructions as 2007 uses for setting up SMTP routing based on that sync.

Otherwise (you want freetime lookups, or you don't like the risks or custom changes you will need)...
You will want to get the 2003 Connector, and possibly buy a third-party account migration tool that includes desktop support.

How are email addresses handled during a multiphase migration?  After the migration is complete, will users be able to use their original email addresses?  How would I handle in the interim, do new ones need to be created?

Thank you

Legacy addresses should never fail.
