Ex5.5 to Ex2003 intra org migration

I have migrated from E5.5 to E2003 intra-Org migration and chose the option 
SID migration via ADMT during  migration .
I 've notice that both source domain and target domain accounts have been 
added to mailbox and public folder resources which doesn't appear to be a 
problem at the moment. However in the near future when I do decide to remove 
the source domain would I be left with "zombie"  source domain accounts???
 In addition, granted that I chose to migrate SID history what will be the 
result when the source Doman is remove. Will there be any performance impact

2 seperate things I things.

When you do a SID migration the new AD account has its own sid plus the old 
sid. This is visible under the sidhistory attribute of the account. This is 
used by the system for a number of things within Exchange like outlook 
permissions etc. When you decommission the old domain nothing will break 
because the new account has the old sid.

However under the mailbox rights you will see 2 entries for the same 
account. One will be the new account and one will be the old source domain 
account. This allows people who log onto the old domain to access the 
mailbox. When they migrate to the new domain that second isn't required 
anymore. Note however, that because the new account has the sid of the old 
account you may find it difficult using the gui to determine which of the 
accounts can be deleted. It may be easier to delete them both and use the 
SELF account.

We decommissioned our source domain and the mailbox rights still list 2 
accounts (the same account due to sid migration) and everything is still 
working fine.

Difference between 8/15/2009 & 8/5/2009
Opened a new file, typed 8/15/2009 in A1, 8/16/2009 in A2, 8/5/2009 in A3. Automatically, the last one gets converted to 08-05-2009, and right-aligned also. Happens in all new files I create. Am I doing something wrong because I wanted the same treatment for both earlier values which appear left-aligned. Any clues? I am using excel 2007. Thanks And you're trying to enter dates, right?

Hey Guys, I have an Exchange 2003 Server and an Exchange 5.5 Server on my domain. We are migrating all users "eventually" to the 2003 Server. For the time being, the users housed on the 5.5 server have been able to use webmail, NOW that I have made the 2003 Exchange server the MX record, and turned on Https for webmail, only users that are housed on that Exchange 2003 server can use webmail, and those housed on the 5.5 server cant get to their mail...

Data Migration 02-25-05

Date Conversion #5
I have a table from an Access database that I am exporting into Excel to be used in various spreadsheets. The Access table has numerous fields, but the ones I will be using are account numbers, balances and dates for transactions.

How can I convert this number into a date once I get it into Excel? I tried just changing the date format from number to date, but that gives me a date way off in the future, like ten years ...

Command bars migrated over to 2007

Doesn't work. :-( When I press one of the buttons, I get a stupifying dialog that tells me: The macro cannot be found or has been disabled because of your Macro security settings. BS. The macro can easily be found if I punch the Macros button on the Developer tab. And, when selected, it runs just just fine. Is there anyway to get it working again, from the toolbar button?
