Migrating from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010

Posted on 2011-05-12

We are ready to move from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.  We heard at a technology conference that the path should be 2003 to 2007 to 2010.  I've looked but I don't see any documentation that says you should do that.  I did see something about an Exchange 2007 intecessor, but I can't find that any more.  We just want to know if it is necessary to put the mailbox on a 2007 server before we move it to the 2010 server.  Thanks

    Accepted Solution

    No it is not at all required. It is recommended to directly move to Exchange 2010.

    You can directly transition or migrate from 2003 to 2010. Don't need to upgrade to 2007.

    I've done this a couple of times. You can skip Exchange 2007.
