    This is really very offensive to all members here. We ALL have something to contribute and seniority does not equal expertise. Would you care to specify “Only members joining before 2006” or would you prefer “only members with more than 500 posts” ?

    It would be better if you accepted answers from ANY member and considered them on their merits before trying anything.

    To return to your question:
    The preferred approach is to move mailboxes from the original server to the new one. This will not disrupt users email but will take longer. Since you are undertaking preventative maintenance, you have the time to do things properly and keep your messaging operational (the key requirement)
    You may then decide to keep some mailboxes on the second server rather than moving them all back after the defrag

    Mr. Ranga Kumar,

    Please take 2 weeks to think about what Ossian has asked from you. In the meantime, thread locked.
