I am writing a series of blog where I will guide you on test cases that should carry out when upgrading from either Exchange 2003 or Exchange Server 2007 to Exchange 2010. This blog is fourth of this series.

Each blog will contain two or three test cases that will guide you on various testing conditions that should help you streamline your Exchange upgrade.
