hi sorry,
i need to research the site in more depth, i think i found what i was looking 
for http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/MF002.html

if this is the case, for 5.5, could i for example setup a second exchange 
server but running 2000, and then migrate all my users to this? what should be 
the right route in achieving this? i will have a new box, could i for example 
add it on the network and change the MX record entry so that mail2.mydomain.com 
has a preference=1 and the old server mail.mydomain.com has preference=20, so 
any new emails will be in the future sent to mail2, this way i can phase out 
the 5.5 instalation without any major disruption to existing services.

thanks
