We currently have Exchange 2003 (6.5) running on Windows 2003 Standard server (for about 4 years). We have about 450 mailboxes taking up about 16GB, 1 mailbox store on one email server. We are looking at new hardware and I am thinking this would be an opportunity to migrate/upgrade to Exchange 2007. We use Outlook 2003 and have no immediate plans to go to Office 2007. I understand it's more of a migration as opposed to an upgrade process. Where can I find licensing costs, hardware/drive suggestions, and any other references for this project?
