The biggest pitfall which I have encountered is that I lost all of my
Distribution Lists which is a real nuisance.  Some of public folders
didn't go across either which, fortunately, was no big deal but is
something which you have to check for.

There are a load of funnies with the new SMTP Connector and, for some
reason, I can't get it to work exactly but that may require a separate
message sometime.

Other than that I think that preparing both a set of backups and a
strong drink is the best way to start...

Subject: [exchangelist] Upgrading from Exchange 5.5 to 2000

I recently upgraded my NT4 server to 2000.  I'm getting ready to upgrade
Exchange from 5.5 to 2000 and was wondering if anyone has any
suggestions as to websites or helpful hints as I hear this is a bear.

TIA for any suggestions!
