  • Exmerge from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003

    Hi,
    I am upgrading to an AD domain from NT4 this weekend. I have Exchange 5.5 currentley. I have proven Exmerge to work to get my mail boxes to my new server. My question is, How can I stop mail from getting to the mailboxes, while I run Exmerge. I dont care if mail is not delivered until my new mail server is up and running. Do I just kill some services? This will be happening this weekend, So any help today will be appreciated.

    Turn off port 25 in your router/firewall. If you can keep it below c. 48 hours, most emails will be re-tried and end up getting through.

    Better still, see if your ISP will store incoming emails for you, then change your DNS MX records
