Autodiscover (true) started with Exchange 2007. 2003 doesn't really support autodiscover

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I can concur with Alan 2007 was when Auto-Discover was implemented.

Hi,

I would suggest that you migrate to at least Exchange 2010, since 2007 will go out of support in 5 months or so (11 april 2017).
If you are looking for 2003 to 2010 migration, then you can use one at link below. I have used it 2-3 times, and it is nice one.

Ivan.

You may not be able to get Exchange 2007. You may only be able get a downgrade license from 2016 to 2010. you can only migrate to the second next version (n2) please read http://exchangeserverpro.com/exchange-server-upgrades-migrations/ 

If you can get Exchange 2007 please read these steps to migrate http://exchangeserverpro.com/exchange-2007-transition-guide/
else
If you have to downgrade to Exchange 2010 this would be a good starting point http://windowsitpro.com/exchange-server-2010/migrating-exchange-server-2003-exchange-server-2010-small-organization-perspect

Either way you need to get off of Windows 2003 server it is EOL and poses a security risk.
