Hi,

use ADSI Edit, from Admin tools. Choose to connect to configuration partition, and per picture, see if there is container named CN=First Administrative Group. It is created when you deploy Exchange 2003, and container CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT) is created with 2007/ 2010.

I am not 100% sure, but should be a tell if you were upgraded.

Regards,
Ivan.

Hi,

What domains are you thinking about, in Exchange, as accepted domains or general?
You can open AD users and computers, and then right click on your domain and choose "Change Domain". That will list you all your domains.
For Forests, maybe you can see how many trusts you have, with other forests. Go to AD Domains and Trusts, which will also list all your domains. Click on any domain, go to properties, and there you will see if you have trust with some other forest.

PS: If this has resolved your first question, regarding "EXCHANGE 2007", you should mark it as completed, and open new question :)

Regards,
Ivan.
