My public store just sent me the following notification email approximately 10 minutes after I removed the OLD server from Replication.

"Multiple edits have been made. The conflicting edits have been attached to the conflict message in:Technical Support"

Where am I supposed to find this message, or should it be ignored since the old server is going to have exchange uninstalled from it. (server migration)

Did you remove all the replicas from the old server before you removed it?

The old server is still on.  Exchange hasn't been uninstalled yet, and it's still on the network
Everything is appearing to be working fine, all replicas appear okay. Although, none of them say in sync. they all say local modified.  Even though, I changed all of the replicas to use the default replication schedule.

the question really is, where do i find the conflict message, because there was nothing in the email.

Before you remove the old server, you should remove all the replica information that points to the old server - ie so that there is only one server listed in all of the replicas.

The conflict message might not be a message in conflict. It should also be settings, permissions etc. You may have made a change on one server, then made another change in the same place while unwittingly connect to the other server.

All replicas from the old server have been removed. (except system config, it wouldn't let me edit that replica).
If i go through the ESM, it shouldn't matter which server I'm actually working from right?

ugh, this whole migration is just ugly.  On paper, it's simple...

It doesn't matter which server you connect to through ESM. I usually use the fastest and most recent Exchange version I can get on to though, as that will make it easier for me as an admin.

Very often you can't.
It is a warning.
They could be in permissions, replicas etc. You have to look at the setting to see whether anything is wrong.

It is very unusual to see them, I have cause a few in my career and usually know why.
