Switching from Linux to SBS 2003 - 28.Feb.2007 6:42:32 AM

Customer is currently running SBS 4.5 which does not make use of Exchange. They also have a dual-NIC Linux box which works as both mail server and firewall. One NIC is connected to the outside world, the other one internally. Clients access email through Outlook using POP3 via the Linux box.

We are going to install a new SBS 2003 server for them and start making use of Exchange. We will also be installing 5 new XP workstations (replacing old ones). The new workstations will connect to the new server and get their mail via Exchange, whilst the old workstations (mainly all Win98) will remain on the old server and continue to get their mail via the Linux box until they get replaced in a few months.

So basically there will be two networks running for a few months as we’ll create a new domain for the new server.

Is it easy to pop the mail over from the Linux box to the SBS 2003 server? It will only be 5 users to start with. We’ll export their pst files on their old computers first, and then import it back into Outlook on the new workstations.

Any help or comments gratefully appreciated.
