is there a way to import the global address list {*.csv} into a exchange 2000 computer.
i have 480 mail boxes and about 150 hidden groups.
the 2 mail servers are in two differnt domains but on the same subnet with no permissions between the two so setting up a connector is out of the question.
i am new to exchange 2000 and profecient with 5.5

Do you just want the GAL or are you intending to move mailboxes as well? Is the GAL you want to move going to be another avaiable address book on the EX2000 server?

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

Actually, you can have a connector even with the servers in different domain and/or organizations.  You'd install the Active Directory Connector on the Exchange 200 box and setup a one-way inter-organizational connection from Exchange (5.5) to Windows.

It will allow you to specify which containers in Ex 5.5 to pull addresses from (you can specify multiple) and which Windows 2000 OU you want to drop them into (you'll need to setup the OU).  The process will ask for a username and password for accessing the Exchange 5.5 directory and a Windows 2000 account for accessing the AD.
