Features?  Faster/better/smarter/more features/more secure OWA and better
ADMIN as well as more reliable message transfer are enough for me.  After
that, I figure the user experience is mostly the same unless using OL2K3.
They can get a better experience (remember that tag line? :) with OL2K3 and
Exchange 2K3 with AD 2K3 (in other words, if they upgrade to the latest,
they get a better more feature rich experience). 
Upgrading has a few gotchas, but since you have a new server, it should be
pretty much confined to the attribute munging issue for the most part.

Subject: [exchangelist] thoughts, views and hello

First off I wanted to say hello. This is my first post on this list and by
reading the "Hi all" thread I can tell you are a friendly group. I look
forward to being a member.


At my company we are making the jump to NT 2003 and Exchange 2003. It's the
age old story of we set up our server (currently NT 2000 and Exchange 2000)
and aside from the occasional defrag I don't do much with it. I've got an
Arcserve backup of it every night and it takes care of itself.


Anyway to my point of the email, I am curious to hear your thoughts and
views on the upgrade to 2003. I've read the white papers and all that so I
know specs on the matter, I'm more interested in opinions from people who
have done it. Like what features impressed you with 2003 that 2000 didn't
have or is the mobile technology worth investigating or did you have a
problem upgrading your domain controller, that kind of stuff.


My new server came in yesterday and I have a new sans coming in next week
that I would like to use with it but I am honestly kinda nervous with the


Thanks in advance.
