Ok im cracking the **** at trying to find a clear answer to this one.

Does the MCTS 70-236 Configuring Exchange Server 2007 Exam count as an elective to the 2003 MCSE

Dont give me links please - i have read and read and read - the MS site for 2003 MCSE track says yes, then you follow the link onto the exchange exam and it doesnt mention 2003 MCSE as being anything to do with the exam.....whereas other exams do

I have MCT's telling me it doesnt, Exam Centres not knowing, and MS having no clarity at all - Can someone who has the knowledge give me an answer here?

from what i have heard is that it does not as MCSE certification is being dis-continued.
There are two new certifications and this exam qualifies you for one of them.
236 gives you MCTS and counts towards MCITP which includes 237 and 238
you might want to check the attachment. rename it to .ppt or .pps

That is a fantastic presentation - its funny you answered with no though, the presentation on 236 clearly states that it DOES indeed count as an elective towards both 2000 and 2003 MCSE courses - great preso - thank you :)

Trust the page on MS that states that the exam is valid for the certification track or check your certification planner.

Same thing as described in the question also exists for the security specializations. In the list of requirements for the security specialization (MCSE2000), it's stated that 70-214 and 70-299 is listed as electives. If displaying the official prep guide for each exam, the information is missing. Prep.guide for 299 only states its valid for 2003-tracks.
The requirement pages for the tracks can also miss some information about upgrade possibilities. Security track on 2003 doesn't contain any information about upgrading from 2000, but it's displayed when using the certification planner.
