Single Exchange 2003 server to Exchange 2007. 500Gb store. Exploring CodeTwo to assist with the upgrade. Any suggestions or experience? Any way to reclaim DB white space prior to move without going offline? Can you have flow to both servers (Exchange 2003 to 2007 was pretty easy).

Mail goes to where the mailbox is.  It uses the routing groups in Exchange to determine deliverables. Here is a guide to migrating:

Also, you are not moving the databases, so don't bother with whitespace.  Migration empties one server and populates the other.

I don't understand why are you looking at CodeTwo.

It is recommended for 2003 to 2013 migrations.

If you are looking for a 2010 to 2003 here is a step by step to follow:
