Not clear from your message if you intend to still run as a cluster?, if you 
are then you will need the Enterprise version of Exchange

If you are not, then you can use the Standard version, the only drawback would 
be the limit on the number of mailbox stores (1 per server), by having more 
mailbox store on a server you can spread users among different stores thus 
reducing the downtime users may experience in the event of a store failure.

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange 2003 server editions

I am looking at replacing an old clustered Exchange 5.5 server
(active/passive) with a pair of Exchange 2003 servers with the mailbox and 
other resources split between them. To have more than one server in a single 
organistaional unit, do I need the standard or Enterprise edition of 2003?
The comparison on the MS website doesn't make it clear (to me at least - I'm 
not a mail specialist).
