  • Exch 2007/2003 coexist - choosing outgoing mail server

    Hi,
    I am getting ready to install my first Exchange 2007 server into an existing Exchange 2003 environment (but on a separate server.) There will only be one 2007 server.
    Once the 2007 server is installed, can the smtp connector on the 2003 server still be used to send and receive email to the internet, or must the 2007 server be the "bridgehead" server?

    Thanks.
    Chris

    You should read the following documentation before starting the migration or transition to Exchange 2007.

      Exchange 2007 will use the existing SMTP connector to send email. It will see it as a Send Connector, but you will be unable to modify it through EMC, you must use ESM on Exchange 2003.
      It works fine, I have been running a dual version environment for the last 18 months while I wait for my preferred antispam tool (Vamsoft ORF) to be released for Exchange 2007.
