A lot of people are questioning me about Exchange 5.5 to Exchange, How can I do? I always have the same answer it’s not possible through exchange 2007 tools:(.

There are 3third partners working on it, but there is not a tool from Exchange Server 2007 to do this work, but there is a logic way to accomplish this kind of migration, the msexchange team has explained to us below.

  2. Migrating from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007
