Following my cry for help earlier, I have taken the advantage of being down
to convince the management that we need to purchase new Exchange software..
And it worked... :-)

I currently have Exchange 5.5 Standard running on NT4. I also have 150 Exch
5.5 CALs.  All Clients are Outlook 2000 or XP.

We will be installing a brand new Win2K server on a new Win2K domain and
install Exch 2k Enterprise on that.

I want to have both Exch 5.5 and 2k running in parallel for some time
(probably 1 or 2 months) until I move all the mailboxes across and iron out
any problems.

After explaining to my supplier what I need, I have a quotation for the
following 2 items:
312-01580       Ms Exchange Upg / Adv OLP NL
381-01367       Ms Exchange CAL Upd / Adv OLP NL

Does the above tell you anything if it is the Enterprise version of
exchange?  All I can see is the 'UPG' for upgrade.  Does ADV = Advanced =

Will we be able to use the media we will buy for Exch 2k to install it on a
clean server, or is it just suitable for an inplace upgrade?
