I have: active directory 2003 mixed mode functionality, existing exchange 2003 sp2 servers and a new 2008 r2 ( 64 bit) windows operating system server.
Which version of exchange can I install on the windows server 2008 r2 server that will work with the existing exchange 2003 servers?
I plan to migrate users off of one of the 2003 exchange servers, leaving the other exchange 2003 users where they are.
This is a simple one level domain, no forests, no children

I have read of a " gotcha" where you can be at 2007 sp2, but not ever be able to migrate to higher levels of exchange.
Thanks.

Yes you should ideally plan for Exchange 2010 as 2007 is already 5 years or more old as of today

Exchange 2010 has way more features compared to Exchange 2007 and very much stable as well
