Suggested Exchange 55 maintainance

I am putting together a doc about things that should be done on a regular
basis for our exchange environment and I was wondering if anyone had any
suggestions for things that should be done daily, weekly, monthly, and
quarterly.  I think I have a decent list but any additional information
would be very helpful.

Thanks

1. exchange migratie 55 - 55

Hi,

I'm migrating a Exchange 5.5 Enterp. from one a 'slow' system (PII) to a new
system (dual Xeon).
The old box is running NT4 sp6a.
The new box is running W2K sp2.
They are all running in a NT4 domain. (migration to AD and Exchange 2000, is
not yet possible)
The current Exchange enviroment has some 650 users and 4 X.400 connector's,
and 1 Internet Mail Service connector.
The new box has a different system name than the old box.

What is the best way to go:
1. Installing Exchange 5.5 on the new box, joining the current Exchange
orginazation.Changing the 'Home Server' to the new box for all the users.

After all this works... deleting the old server from the site...

enviroment. Copying the setting's from the connector's to the new enviroment
and restoring a backup from the old exchange database to the new box. (like

I'm just in the process of planning this action... so, please give me some
feedback on this...

Also... will any action mean changing the client setting (Outlook 2000) for
the new server name ? (because the new box has a different name....)
