Hello,
I have exchange 2003 std and two users, user a and user b.
I would like to move the email in one user mailbox to another's mailbox as the first employee is no longer with the company. I am looking for a solution that preserves single instance message store and does not force me to move the mail to a pst. I am also not fond of giving user b rights to open mailbox a.

Any ideas?
Thanks.
Tony

You have about two options.

Merge the info to pst and reimport on user b.
Use exmerge, again to create a pst, and reimport on user b.
If usera mailbox has much more data than userb, you could delete user a mailbox, associate user b mailbox with user a.

But, that's about it. There is no 'magic' way to poof the data into user b mailbox.

sucks... that's what I thought. They should allow you to move data from one user to another...
pst way of doing it breaks single instance storage.
thanks.
