I actually have an Exchange 5.5 organitzation with one site. I also use OWA 5.5 to access mailboxes on any server. Now, I will migrate to Exchange 2000. What happens with the mailboxes being migrated to the new Exchange 2000 servers? How will I access them during the migration period? It is compatible to access them through the OWA 5.5 or I will to access them pointing to new Exchange 2000 servers?

Regards,
L.Martin

I believe the E2K OWA is able to access E5.5 servers, but I'm not 100% sure.

The best method is to join a new e2k server to the 5.5 site. Then use the move mailbox wizard to move them over. During the move, they will be inaccessible. After they are on the e2k server, you will need to replace 5.5 owa with e2k owa as your gateway to the servers. i beleive its downward compatible with 5.5 as long as there is a e2k server in the same site. 5.5 owa will not talk to e2k servers.
