k, if thats the case, there's hardly any information stored in the older versions' databases. there's the stored procedures, which won't change from a fresh install (perhaps during service packs and hot fix applications, but something you can get back to). the IT policy, if utilized, would need to be reapplied (since it differs from version to version), so back this up. and your license information is about the only other stuff, but that can be easily typed in. you'll want to backup your user list, but that is separate from the database.
you possibly would want to delete old MAPI profiles on the machine, as well (and recreate when prompted during installations), although it won't really matter. these can be found in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Cur rentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.
