Subject: [exchangelist] Upgrade questions

I have a w2k sp4 domain; that includes an e2k Version 6.0
Build 6249.4:sp3 server hosting email for   

I want to upgrade all to w2k3, e2k3 and modify the domain name to
myDomain.local and am looking for the best/quickest method.

The deployment guide says:   Determine Domain Controller Upgrade Order

Do you get a chance to rename the domain as in a NT4 to w2k domain
controller upgrade?   

Thanks all.
