Exchange 2007 & 2013 Co-Existence
Posted on 2014-03-26
I currently have 1 Exchange 2007 server. I would like to begin implementing Exchange 2013 to ultimately replace it.
I have read that both severs CAN co-exist. I have some questions regarding that...
Once I have installed Exchange 2013 on the new server into the existing Org, if I do NOT move any mailboxes to it will it affect anything just sitting there?
If I start moving mailboxes slowly what will need to be done to allow mail to flow properly? Does a smarthost need to be configured from Exchange 2013 to 2007? Also, will Outlook auto-configure the new server once the mailbox is moved?
Finally, can you please provide a link or walk-thru of the steps necessary to get this done?
THANK YOU very much for any assistance!!
