Moving to 4.0 will just kick off enterprise activation (if youve upgraded the handhelds first).
Moving to a new server and a new organisation...shut down the bes services. Make sure the BESAdmin user is on the new exchange server, then create a new MAPI profile on the BES and make sure you can contact the new exchange. Then change the default mapi profile for BES and restart the BES services. See if you have major issues...
When you shut down the BES services, you will have to uninstall 5.5 exchange admin tools and install 2000 or 2003 exchange admin tools on the BES too.
Personally, I think you'd be best installing it again from scratch once the new exchange is installed.
BES Admin, sometime God.
