When upgrade from Exchange 2000 or 2003 to Exchange 2007 you must perform a transition. Mainly because you can not upgrade the binaries on the Exchange 2003 box to 2007, 2003 is 32 bit and 2007 is 64 bit. During the transition you will need to have the 2003 Exchange Routing Group connected to the 2007 Exchange Routing Group. This will allow you to delever mail to recipients on both platforms and keep business continuity. You connect the two with a Routing Group Connector and I advise you use the Exchange Manager Console to manage them.

I am starting to warm up to Exchange 2007 and found that anything and everything can be fixed through the Exchange Management Shell. Recently I transitioned an Exchange 2003 administrative group to Exchange 2007. After migrating the users from the Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007, I decided to check to see if creating a mailbox is the same. So I opened the (ADUC) Active Directory Users and Computers MMC and ran through the creation of a new user and mailbox. When I went back to the Exchange Management Console the “Recipient Type Details” showed as “Legacy Mailbox”.
