Updates required for Exchange 2003

Hi,

Although a lot of people have moved on from Exchange 2003, there are still a massive number of mailboxes still on the system.

I thought it would be worth listing the hotfixes needed for Exchange 2003.

Notes

1. Install the hot-fixes in the order listed.? Hot-fixes are ordered based on version numbers beginning with the lower versions and ending with the higher versions.

2. It should be noted that not all the fixes are publicly available as some need to be downloaded via MSFT support.

3. Be sure to install the service packs and/or hot-fixes on the Front-End servers before upgrading the back-end servers.

Service Pack

? Service Pack 2 – http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=535bef85-3096-45f8-aa43-60f1f58b3c40&DisplayLang=en
