    ... or will 2007 just re-integrate and take over the role?

    In my language it means "makes no sense"
    OK, then I disagree. MS called it "feature incomplete". RTM wasn't finished and I think it's a good idea not to spend £££s until you know what you have to live with.

    Especially when it's tax-payers money.

    MS tell us about all the thought & effort that went into simplifying the GUI management, but couldn't get the screamingly obvious and relatively trivial to implement bulk-mailbox creation into the RTM GUI? Why ever not? That lack of PST import/export was the final nail: Exmerge has been useful to me for other scenarios in addition to initial config/migration.

    It was definitely prudent to wait. That the world hasn't ended for people who put RTM in production the week it hit the streets doesn't change that.

    If you have problems with MSexchange just go with something better. Like Zimbra.

    So you are basically saying that I should have made the client pay twice with tax-payers money?

    Take this Example..... A public sector Client requests that an Exchange server is installed. I suggest that it would be better to wait until E2K7 is at SP1… and then install that however the, client insists that Exchange is installed ASAP and doesn’t want to wait.

    I give him two options as follows.

    Option1:
    Install E2K3 then migrate to E2K7 when SP1 is released.

    Option 2:
    Install E2K7 RTM then SP1 when released.

    Since the client had no PST data to migrate and no one on site with the required level of knowledge to even manage E2K3, I advised that the they went for Option 2 instead of charging twice. Once for E2K3 then for E2K7.

    Re: Exchange 2007 SP1

    Personally now I have installed 2007 I would recommend using 2003 for the next few years and then upgrading at a later date, I'm sure you can buy a 2007 license and run 2003 instead during that time.

    It just seemed like an incomplete product at launch and even now. I remember 2003 was exactly the same(couldn't have mail stores larger than 10gb or something until a service pack upgrade).

    Sometimes you forget how good a mature product like exchange 2003 is with mission critical stuff like email.
