Upgraded to SBS 2003 now Exchange is missing some folders in a few mailboxes

I just upgraded my SBS 2000 machine to a new box and SBS 2003.  When I used the migration wizard for Exchange it did give me errors for two of the mailboxes so I tried to migrate them again and they kept getting stuck in the same place.  So, I moved forward.  Now, I have my new system up and running.  Everything is working fine, but those two users NEED the rest of their files.  

I have backukps from the old server.  I tried to run the migration wizard again but it keeps telling me to check my port, name or password and won't connect.  I haven't changed anything so it should be working.  I went to the SBS 2000 box and tried to look at the mailboxes and the store has a red down arrow on it and no boxes listed.

Is there a way to get these folders back?

    If you have the old box still use EXMERGE to port the mailboxes out to .pst files and then will put them back in again.

    I tried doing the suggestion above, but it didn't work.  I ended up buying Recovery Manager for Exchange from Quest and that worked like a charm.  Thanks.
