Hi all...
We are running:

AD Box: Dual xeon with Win2K SVR fully spacked.
Exchange box: Dual xeon with Win2K SVR fully spacked.

We are changing ISPs here pretty quick which means that we will have a 
different class C soon.  I am implementing NAT finally, and I am curious.  Is 
there anything I need to watch out for when changing the IP of my Active 
Directory box? 

Thanks ahead of time.

First off, are they members of the same exchange organization?  I.e.,
when you installed Exchange 2k3, did you do it as a server that is part
of your 5.5 org, or did you create a new org?

If so, it should be fairly easy...

If not, it's going to be a bit more complicated.

Rather than write up both, I guess I'll wait for an answer...

Subject: [windows2000] Some Exchange 2003 Questions


Afternoon all,

At present I am running an instance of Exchange 2003 on Windows Server
2003, and an instance of Exchance 5.5 on Windows NT4.

The exchange 5.5 box is running off an expensive (as in pay-per-minute)
ISDN line and is our current live mail server. It pulls our company
emails down from a POP3 box, via a program called pullmail. The 2k3
server is on a fixed price DSL connection and is going to be our new
mail server, and it will be sending and receiving messages via direct
SMTP.

One of my problems is that I already have a full-time job providing tech
support on our products so have little time to do research on the best
way to migrate, let alone perform the actual migration, but am being put
under a little pressure to get the traffic off the expensive, slow ISDN
line.

Is there a way I can direct the Exchange 5.5 boxes traffic through the
2K3 box? I can see in Ex5.5 there is an option to forward all email to a
certain SMTP host for delivery. If I enter the internal IP address of
the 2K3 box, and give that IP permission to relay on the 2K3 box will
outgoing mail be delivered?

Secondly, is there a way I can get the 2K3 box to download the pending
messages from our POP3 box, and forward them directly onto the SMTP
service on the 5.5 box? I couldnt find any way of setting up a POP3
collection service, only a POP3 server.

Is this even worth doing, so should I just spend the time sitting down
and getting the migration done once and for all?

Thanks for reading.

Rob Sharp
