    This might be handy to run before you start....
    Powershell to create a backup to XML or all your CAS configurations settings, I think its made for 2010 but we ran it on our 2007 box and it gave us a backup for reference:

    Script ExportCASConfig.ps1

    It's ready to go, just moving mailboxes over tonight and the job should be complete.

    I know someone who is an exchange expert so he helped me with the migration. It would have taken much longer on my own I must admit.

    I have logged into the 2013 web app, it looks good but a little like outlook 2013 in the fact unread messages don't stand out too much. Not sure how my users are going to get on with it but will need to give them time to adapt.

    How do you ungroup emails? They are currently grouped by week and in order of newest to oldest. I just want them ungrouped on mine.

    Not sure I'd agree with that. We are a small town and twice last year our connection was lost due to hardware fault. At least we still had internal mail.

    Well done
    You did it in really good time. Installing CU2 took about 2 hours alone here!
    For any staff that complained that the unread emails weren't as noticeable in outlook 2013 I changed them to red. REALLY clear then. (Right click > Settings > conditional formatting > unread email > choose red and larger font)

    Thank-you.

    I need to double check the cu packs are applied...not sure if they are!

    Can you change that setting on web app? I know you can in outlook 2013

    I found that the CU installs were quick, but our server is ridiculous.

    To ungroup in OWA, you need to turn off conversation view on each folder.

    We'll ours has quad core and 16gb memory so should be quite quick too!

    Is it my eyes or is the text on the web app maybe a little bit blurry? (Might just be my graphics cards on home PC 2 x GTX 670's) I don't think you can change the font of unread messages on web app only outlook 2013.

    Has anyone made a custom theme for exchange 2013 web app?

    I have turned off conversation view but its still sorting emails by date and showing days of the week and 'last week' etc

    Then you need to fix your internet connection stability, not build extra servers

    Is there any reason not to go for exchange 2013?

    Regards
    Honestly, if you haven't done any more planning than that the day before a major upgrade - then you should probably have postponed the upgrade entirely. The day before is not the time to making that sort of decision.

    And if it's completely out of his hands?

    maybe you need to consider that your preferred solution isn't the best for everyone.
