We migrated a user from 5.5 to 2003 Exchange. IT hung on saving Directory information. We aborted. LEft 2 mailboxes one on 5.5 the other on 2003. We removed the Exchange attrib's from local dc an mounted the 2003 mailbox to the user account. Ad account has Exchange tabs. We removed the old mailbox. Main DC does not see Exchange info for that user account even after forced replication. User is no longer in Address book. She can access her mailbox but no one can find her. I cannot move the mailbox back because 5.5 does not see her mailbox on the new 2003 server. Any help would be appreciated.

With Exchange 2003...DCs don't see Exchange Attributes unless the Exchange Admin tool is installed on them.  To see Exchange Attributes you need to log onto the Exchange 2k3 server.  Check her simple display name on the Exchange 2k3 server...is one there?  Can you still send her a message regardless (since she isn't list in the GL)?

It is just her The admin tools are installed. I have migrated 100 users and she is the only one.

I have resolved this problem... For anyone else who has this issue... The users AD account was corrupted. I used the new Exmerge utility to export her mailbox. I then deleted the users account and mailbox. Recreated and used Xmerge to import her mail back into the folder.
