Success - Exchange move!!
HOORAY!! Stayed behind tonight to move all mailboxes from Exchange 2003 on Server 2003 to Exchange 2007 on Server 2008 and it ALL WORKS!!!! It only took 5 hours......
There should be an opposite forum to FFS for when things unexpectedly work!!
I just hope this server isn't going to be like the other Fujitsus we have and randomly hang

Great news! Give it a few days and you might be FFS'ing then.

Good for you. I'm part way through. I can transfer the mailboxes but the public folders refuse to replicate (there are ways around this) and I just hope once the users mail is moved over and I delete the connector between 2k3 and 2k7 it will work fine. Oh, and I'm having the old 'Can't find the offline address book' problem too. I'm moving mine the first 2 days of the half term.

We haven't used public folders, so haven't checked if that's okay!
I would have waited until half term as well, but our old mail server has 150MB free (and dropping fast) on the C drive, and that's after deleting everything possible and moving the page file to the d drive, so i didn;t want to chance leaving it too long. Damn Windows updates and service packs!!
Only minor issue was that the IE shortcut I put out didn;t work as the 'do not use proxy for these addresses ' didn't update. All sorted now (I hope!) Now to get the documents link working in OWA2007

I hope you've thought about your backup solution. The backup utility that comes with Server 2008 is not Exchange aware (as we discovered to our cost). We just bought Backup Exec 12 as a consequence.

How about a TFFT section?

Yes I have, we have BE12d, although for some stupid reason I only bought one licence not 2 (have two backup libraries...) Time to beg for more money...
