I have two different domains, both have the same Admin ID/Password and I still can't get the migration tool to work on either systems to see each other. I can see each server and quickly share a drive without any validation of username or password. But when I try the migration tool, it doesn't allow me to "trust" each server. I am able to expoert from Outlook to a PST file and import once a user is part of the new domain, but this is very lengthy process. I was hoping to use a migration tool or just move some files.

SBS server doesn't support trusts, that's your main problem.

The only thing I can think of to help out with the mailboxes is - If the Exchange Site, Organisation and server are called the same thing on both system you could try a restore from backup.

The use of Exmerge turned out to be the solution. All other migration tools hit road blocks.  Excellent tip, glad I used it
