"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That is correct!  Just installing Exchange 2010 on your network will NOT affect e-mail.  However there are certain active directory modifications which have to be made for Exchange 2010 to be installed. If you are looking for a good guide to upgrading Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 I have used a great resource from Microsoft, and I have used a Rapid Transition Guide available online and I have attached in a PDF for convenience.
