  • Hebrew problem when moving mailboxes from Exchange 2003 to 2007

    Hi,

    I currently have two companies sharing one domain and one exchange server. Company A has no IT infrastructure, and shares all of Company B’s. Company B has just been sold, so Company A must establish its own IT infrastructure from scratch.
    CompanyB is currently running a 2003 domain with Exchange 2003.

    The plan is that CompanyA will have a new server running ESXi with three Windows 2003 guest OS. One will run as the DC and file server, one running as an Exchange 2007.

    All of CompanyA’s users need to be migrated from CompanyB’s 2003 domain, to the new 2003 domain, and all 2003 Exchange mailboxes need migrating to the new Exchange 2007.

    I've installed ESXi with three Windows 2003 guest OS.
    I've installed Exchange 2007, and using exmerge, i've exported all mailboxes from Exchange 2003 to PSTs.
    Then, i've created the users in the new AD and created the mailboxes.
    Then, using the "Exchange Management Shell" i've imported the PSTs to the mailboxes (using the "Import-Mailbox" cmd command).

    Everything's went well, and all 30 mailboxes have been imported
    but i have one problem:
    Mails subjects, contacts and calendar items - instead of Hebrew I get "????"

    I've checked the Regional Settings and all set to Hebrew.
    plz, can someone assist me with that?

    Thanks

        You will need to get the Public Folders migrated across as well.

          Do you say that migrating the Public Folders will fix the Hebrew problem?

            Probably a silly question, but do you have the Hebrew character set and fonts installed on the server (different from regional settings)?
