Why would you want to do this ?  You can use Exchange 2000 in a Windows
2003 forest so long as you are running Exchange 2000 SP2 or SP3. If you
do some research on Windows 2003 you will find that the entire structure
of IIS (which exchange depends for most everything) has been completely
re-worked, and although it has an IIS 5 compatiblity mode it is not
fully compatiable with IIS5. It seems to me that although you can
probably jump through some hoops to make it work, it would not really
provide any tangable benefit.

        Has anyone installed E2k on Win2k3 yet? If so, are there any
issues regarding it? Has anybody installed it into a domain that was
upgraded from Win2k to Win2k3?
