You cannot upgrade Exchange 5.5 Exterprise to Exchange 2000 Standard. Are you sure you want to go to the Standard edition? It has the same 16GB information store limit as the standard edition of 5.5.

To move the mailbox you need to use Active Directory Users and Computers

1) Start the Active Directory Users and Computers Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in.
2) Right-click the user being moved, and then click Exchange Tasks.
3) In Select a Task to Perform, click Move Mailbox.
In the Move Mailbox pane, verify that Current Mailbox Store is the Exchange Server 5.5 computer and that SERVER name is the Windows 2000 server name. Choose the storage group and mailbox store where you want to move the user to.
