Migrate Exchange 2003 to 2007 help

We have a pre-existing Exchange 2003 server that is running out of space since it's old.

We have a brand new 64 Bit machine, so I installed Server 2003 64 and Exchange 2007

Both are up and running, tied to Active Directory, SSL is installed and Migrated a few accounts over to test stability.

Let say I'm still learning exchange and want to make sure it's set up properly to decomission the old 2003 server and have everything ready on the Exchange 2007 server.

What do I need to know to make sure Exchange 2007 is ready to take the role of primary Exchange server, what do I need to do to decommission the old 2003 server so the environment is working properly.

RPC over HTTPS and OWA as well...


Thanks in advanced.. I've set up Exchange server 2003 at home, but i want to make sure this is done smoothly.

you need to replicate the public folders if you have them.

you need to set on the port 25 receve connector to allow anonymous connections so you can receive from the internet.

you need to create a smtp send conecotr and set the bridgehead as the new 2007 server and have an address space of *.

you need to point the NAT or port forward port 25 to the new 2007 box

you need to install the SSL cert on the new 2007 CAS and enable outlook anywhere

this will also help and is a good read:
