Subject: [exchangelist] MIGRATION - Native Mode

Dear all,

   We are in the process of migrating resources from the existing exchange
5.5 organization to a new exchange 2003 organization.

We require the following:

1) Co-existence between the Exchange 5.5 Org and Exchange 2003 Org with
calendaring - we plan to use inter-org replication tool (EXCHSYNC) to
replicate free/busy and public folders!!!!! 

              - Your comments on it. Is it possible? and your
suggestions....[Mulnick, Al] It's possible and should work fine.
Suggestion?  Don't stay in the migration mode any longer than absolutely
necessary to cut down on troubleshooting user questions problems etc.  

2) GAL Synchronization - ADC inter-org CA 

               - Your comment and suggestions or any other tools
available.[Mulnick, Al]  Works fine.  This is great, but as above, don't
stay in this mode any longer than you have to.  You have a lot of moving
pieces to your mail system and troubleshooting time will increase.   

3) We would like to promote Exchange 2k3 org to Native Mode to take maximum

             - When can we switch the mode - Is it possible to promote at
initial stage before migration or switch can be done only after the

             - Does this have any effect on inter-operability discussed
above (will SRS required???)[Mulnick, Al]  Have you read what the SRS does
for you?  Take a look at the docs and compare to the approach you're taking.
Native mode won't make a difference to you and would probably be just fine.
Don't forget to test all of this :) 


Thanks in advance for your reply
