Exchange 2007 - UCC Cert required?
My current SSL cert expires next month and I'm planning to move over to Exchange 2007 in the summer hols.
Does Exchange 2007 require a UCC cert? If so - could I purchase one of these now and continue to use it with Exchange 2003?
It's tres confusing...

Yes you need a UCC certificate with Exchange 2007 and 2010. Out of interest why are you going to 2007 and not 2010 which has been out now for a while?
As for how to cover yourself, can you just run with it on a self signed one for a month? You could probably get away with a UCC one though and then just re-key it once you have got the new box in place, just ensure that your main name on the certificate doesn't change or you will probably have to buy a new one again.

Sticking with Exchange 2007 at present as we use Sophos PureMessage for spam filtering and, as of yet, they do not support Exchange 2010.
If that changes in the near future though, then I'll go straight to Exchange 2010.
I suppose I could run it with a self-signed cert in the meantime, but it will confuse a LOT of our staff and panic will ensue...

Just thinking out loud now... but if I built my Exchange 2010/2007 box now, could I use this as the OWA front-end even if the mailbox store is still on the old server?

You can transition from 07 to 10 side by side (which is the way it has to be done) so guess that's a possibility, I didn't go from 07 to 10 I went straight to 10 from no exchange so cannot help on that but suspect it could be possible....
