Your best bet might be to hire a consultant to take care of it for you.
Here for something as small as 12gig it would take under 5 hrs at $150
an hour, fairly inexspensive upgrade.
Exchange Server 2003 is supported in the following Active Directory
*        Windows 2000 mixed mode domains        
*        Windows 2000 native mode domains       
*        Mixed Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 domains     
*        Windows Server 2003 native mode domains        
*        Windows Server 2003 interim mode domains

OK, so I have not gone down this route simply because the customer can
not get hold of an exchange 5.5 enterprise media. I did the long process
of archiving mail and doing a defrag. This worked cos I claimed bak
about 4gb. this should carry us for about 2weeks. The issue now is that
thier current environment is
Windows 2000 AD mixed mode
My question, can I install exchange 2003 onto windows 2000 AD mixed mode
and then migrate the mailboxes over. I guess this would be the easiest
way forward ? Any tips would be great, including whitepapers.
