Single Exchange 2003 server, Single Exchange 2010 server

All clients are outlook 2010, and no legacy outlook 2003 clients

I understand I have to move the Public folders over.  

However,
Do you need to replicate Free busy, offline address book, GAB if no outlook 2003 are being used

Do I need to adjust anything on Exchange 2010

There is only 50 mailboxes, 20gig.  Everyone can be moved over in a single instance


If I enable web based distribution, will Exchange 2010 take care of the   GAL, OAB, and free/busy?

or will I have to do additional steps to get those to work

13years, this is a little off topic, but we did also migrate from 2003 to 2010 recently, and what happened was that the To-Do list got corrupt, and nothing show up in the task list. If you get the same problem, use mfcmapi (http://mfcmapi.codeplex.com/) to delete the To-Do-Search from the mailboxes.
