Transition to Exchange 2007 from exchange 2003
In the lifespan of an organisation it’s messaging environment be transitioned to a newer version several times. Whilst this is not a complicated thing to do it does require some level of planning and thought. I’ll be addressing the transitioning from Exchange 2003 to 2007 from a fairly simple view here.
