    You can use ExMerge to create PST files of all users as well...


    make a full database backup with your backup software and you can restore it in your new server


    Are they in the same network , if yes you can automaticly retrivew the mails if you set it correctly ( you can download some tools from MS web site)

      Is it still running or do you just have the database files?

        if the old server is not working and all you have is the database files (or a backup), you can try Ontrack's PowerControls -- they have saved my life on several occasions!
