RUS and Mailbox Management policies when migrating to Exchange 2007

Hi All,

We are currently running Exchange 2003 SP2. We have four domains in our Active Directory - Florida, California, NY and Texas. Exchange is organized so that each domain is also a routing group/ Admin group in Exch. NY is the hub site which mails go to the Internet from/to.

FL will be migrated to Exchange 2007 first. The problem is, we have recipient update policies and mailbox management policies set for the entire 2003 organisation (although each domain has a seperate RUS server).

We have installed the FL CAS and Hub Transport server so far. From what I can see, the existing RUS policy has been copied over as an E-mail Address policy, but the 'Applied' status is False. The Mailbox Management policy from 2003 does not seem to have been copied over - although I'm not sure if this is because we don't have a 2007 Mailbox server as yet in the org.

Does anyone know what will happen to the Mailbox Management policy (delete Inbox emails after 70 days etc) when we co-exist? Will the 2003 policy be applied to any mailboxes on 2007? Is there the chance that a 2007 policy will affect mailboxes on 2003?

Secondly, is it possible to set Mailbox Management policies for only a subset of users (e.g. one domain) in the EMC?

And, thirdly, what will happen to the RUS/E-mail Address policy?

Thanks!

I believe the policies will have to be re-created. I've not done a transition where policies were involved. I do know that yes, you can setup policies based on domain or almost any schema attribute. The address policy will carry over to Exchange 2007. It doesn't use RUS but rather email address policies and accepted domains. To remove exchange 2003, you need to point your 2003 RUS to the 07 server (MS is supposed to fix this), even though it doesn't use it.
Hope that helps.
