Merging together two exchange sites!

I have a site in the UK running NT and Exchange5.5 with a .co.uk address.  I also now have a site in the States running W2000 and Exchange2000 with a .com address. The companies are linked by a vpn.
I would like to merge together these two sites into one organisation if possible based in the UK and then add a new global .com email address as well as maintaining the current addresses.
My take on the situation, if it is correct, is to reinstall the Ex2000 into the 5.5 organisation and implement the ADC from the states to the uk to replicate the users. I am open to other or better solutions for example by not having to reload Ex2000!
Can you help please?

Using your .com address for both Orgs is an easy thing.  Merging the Orgs is another matter.  I'm assuming that these two sites are in different orgs, correct?  You're pretty much on track with installing an E2K server into the 5.5 site and setting up an ADC.  You could just do a mailbox move after that.

You could also exmerge all of the 5.5 mailboxes out of the 5.5 server and import them into newly created accounts on the 2000 side.  How all this is done really depends on exactly what you're after.

Let me know how you want to proceed.
