You have conflicting remarks, your subjects says enable and your text body says unable. What do you want to do enable or disable?

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

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.

Regards,
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.
