Removing Last 5.5 Server that has an IMC

I am following the steps in the article:
before removing my last 5.5 server and moving the smtp services over to my 
2003 server.  The scenario that applies is single\last 5.5 server (it is a 
single AND last :)

Step 3 - verify the smtp connector is seen in your exchange server 5.5 
configuration - is the step that keeps failing. I have repeated step 2 now a 
couple of times and waited for about 3 hours now and the connection still 
does not show  up. I also see no obvious (or any) errors in the event log on 
my 5.5 server.

if I can successfully send and recieve mail from the new 2003 server to the 
internet, is this process critical?

Restart the ADC service. Or restart the Exchange 5.5 server. Or
restart the SRS. Or all three.

That depends on what the Exchange 5.5 server's doing. :) You want the
5.5 server to route any SMTP mail to the Exchange 2000/2003 server.
But you really want to make sure that changes you make at either the
5.5 server or in the AD are appearing in both directories before you
start removing things.

Do I need DSClient to run Exchange 5.5 on an NT4.0 box in Windows 2003 Native Mode ADS?
Good Evening, I am in the process of migrating my WinNT4.0 domain and Exchange 5.5 Org to Windows 2003 ADS/Exchange 2003. I know best practice is to change the domain to Native mode, but how does this affect my NT4.0 server running 5.5? Do I need to simply load the DSClient onto the server? I should also note that we did an inplace upgrade from NT 4.0. This is a single domain environment. As long as you no longer have NT 4.0 BDCs you should be able to move to native mode. Your NT 4.0 server running E55 will not be affected (unless of course it is also a BDC). It is a good idea to...

Last Cell
To All I was wondering if you could help me with my problem. If you have data in your worksheet and you say delete all the data in the last row, when you say F5 (Goto) "Special" and select "Last Cell" then it will always go to the data row that you have just deleted. There seems no way to get the "Last Cell" to update to where the last data is. Does anyone know to resolve this issue please. Thanks in advance. Deleting the data won't impact the "Last Cell". The "Last Cell" doesn't refer to the current data. It refers to the la...

How do I Remove a Split from my Comments in Excel 2003?

We need to do this without specialized software on the client, since it will be universally available to webusers.
