That may make it impossible for you to delegate permissions or to
install hotfixes or service packs in the future.


One should take care that a GROUP has been delegated permissions in the
Exchange environment, not a single user that could be deleted.

You will not do any harm to Exchange if you change the password or even
delete the account used to do the domainprep/forestprep.

2003 runs under LocalSystem, from what I've been reading, 
there is really no particular domain account tied to Exchange to keep it

So, if I want to change the password to the account I used to do
domainprep/forestprep when I installed Exchange 2003 originally, I will 
not do any damange to Exchange itself?  This account is a domain admin
and thus a local admin on the Exchange box.  It's the account I use to
manage exchange with.

I have 3 Exchange 2003 SP1 servers only.
