Currently migrating from exchange 2007 to exchange 2013, and have a few questions regarding mail flow settings. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
first, I see that the 2007 accepted domains show up in the 2013 EAC. Do I need to re-create these in 2013 or are they already/automatically added/converted to 2013 even after 2007 decomission ?
second, I see the email address policies are also listed, same question as above do i need to re-create or export/import these like the 2007 transport rules ?
Third as far as send connectors I want to do a staged cut over of SMTP, do i need to create a new send connector in 2013 add my 2 2013 mailbox servers and select proxy throug cas(managment wants this), and then when ready to cut over add the 2013 mailbox servers to the 2007 send connector and remove the 2007 Hub transport servers ?
Recipient connectors, in 2007 the hub servers are using the defaults nothing crazy, ie: no relay of scanners or anything. Do i need to edit or modify the 2013 recipient connectors on the CAs and mailbox servers ? for example enable annonymous ? or configure anything for the 2007 mailboxes during coexistance ?
THe OAB for 2013 how do i create it in 2013 and what do i have to do to replicate it from 2007 ?
i know this is allot but any insite or advice would be great.
thank you in advance.
