    Exchange 2003 to 2013

    As 2013 has just been released it seems silly to use 2010 (which i was just about to install)

    But which is likely to be the easiest transition:

    2003> 2007> 2013
    2003> 2010> 2013

    TBH if you have waited this long I would wait another 3 months at least and do this migration in Feburary. Let everybody else have the problems first.

    I would go to 2010 anyway.

    have you thought about office 365?

    Your going to have to wait for Exchange 2010 SP3 to be released at a later date, but have you considered Office365?

    Yes and no, depends what you are going to do with it and use it, anything that was free in Live@Edu continues to be in Office 365. Well worth a look into

    How is your exchange free? even with MS educational licensing deals you still have to pay for it....

    Thanks for the replies, i think we'll stick with in-house exchange for now.
    I think management is leery about cloud tech :/

    Yeah I know that I was just seeing why he thought it was free. in the grand scheme of things 45 isn't much I know - considering for 5 users in non-edu its nearly 1k.
    @Greenbeast there is being leery about cloud tech and being ignorant. It has its benefits and it has its drawbacks depending on what you are trying to acheive. Moving Exchange to Live@Edu or Google Apps is something which can have a good benefit for little cost (mainly setup time).

    You can also look at things like full managed cloud backups. This can be easily achieved but costs money. For example Databarracks (who's Datacenter is in a Nuclear Bunker in Kent). They will setup install and fully manage all your backups so that its taken off your hands and its backed up to their private Tier 4 datacenter.

    Although this relies totally on the internet for functionality.

    EDIT: if you get all your microsoft licensing for free then I presume they would give you office 365 for free!
