But they was getting the 500 error and Site busy from the outside when OWA was tried to go to. What they ended up doing was running...

Well it was back at the migration this week and I worked on moving the Public Folders and everything related to this and had no real issues.

No this is not a SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 migration. This is about taking a SBS2003 domain and migrating to the full blown 2008 Server with Exchange 2007 and breaking out and away from SBS 2003. That does happen as companies grow and this one has grown, they might have been a choice for EBS but they...
