Hello,
I’m glad we are not the last one to migratie from exchange 5.5. A few months ago we did this migration in our testlabo by following the free Microsoft-book `Exchange Server 2003 Deployment Guide?.especially Chapter 4 `Migrating from Exchange Server 5.5?.
We encounterd almost no problems.
I think this chapter will be a great help.

    Hello, Migrating from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003 is not as hard as you may think. If you don't have access to the book the previous post recommended, try a Google search on the subject. You'll be amazed at all the info that is available on the subject. There are many postings with cook book type instructions that will walk you through the process. Best piece of advice (especially if your doing this in a production environment) is to plan, plan and plan! Good planning will make the process painless to both you and your users. Good luck!
