  • sbs 2003 to 2008 mail import

    hello all, I have an existing 2003 sbs server with exchange running I have since installed 2008 and did not go through the migration process, and now I am looking for away to get some mailboxes (maybe 4) from the old server to the new one. some things that i have considered are just changing the users to a pop account and allowing them to make a pst file fo there emails and then importing those emails into exchange on the new box. Anyways I am just looking for feedback in case some one has a better way or maybe a reason why that will not work.

    Presumably then you are running Exchange on the new server. What version? Is the new server a DC in the same domain?

      If Exchange is still running you can use ExMerge.

        Just to add to g00ner's comment. You can use ExMerge to get the mail into PST files then use import-mailbox with Exchange 2007

        Assuming indeed that you have Exchange 2007
