fix

The recommended practice for migrating an Exchange 5.5 Organization to a mixed-mode Exchange 5.5 / Exchange 2003 Organization is:

  • For the mixed-mode Organization, migrate / move the remaining Exchange 5.5 mailboxes over to Exchange 2003
  • Remove all remaining Exchange 5.5 servers and make all the necessary changes to promote the Exchange Organization to Native mode Exchange 2003
  • Migrate the stand alone Exchange 5.5 Organization into the Exchange 2003 organization following the best practices for an Inter-Organization migration
