Hi all,

I have Exchange 2003 running on Windows Server 2003 Standard under domain1.  I have setup a new machine with Exchange 2003 running Windows Server 2003 Standard R2 under domain2.

I need to move the public folders and mailboxes from domain1 to domain2.  (There are less than 15 mailboxes) and then remove Exchange from Domain1.

I have looked through other help questions here and on Microsoft's site but so far I am having no luck.  Of course I am under a time crunch, they need it done yesterday.  :)

Would someone please point me in the right direction?  Thanks in advance.

Are these two exchange servers in the same Exchange ORG?
If not then you can exmerge out the mailbox data into .pst files and then import them into the new Exchange ORG using Exmerge. You will have to create new mailboxes for the users and populate them before doing exmerge.

Regarding public folders, you can replicate them if they are in the same ORG else use inter-org sync tool to replicate them

Hi, thanks so much for you comments.

No, not in the same Exchange ORG.

Now, for the next 2 stupid questions.....

where do I find the exmerge and the inter-org sync tool?

Thanks again!

The ExMerge does not seem to want to download properly for me.  I keep getting a exchmen.dll error reinstall the program.

Any other ways?

were you able to download the exmerge?
if yes then after downloading it needs to put / extracted in the bin folder and then run from that folder

I got it, I had to go out and find a .dll and add it to the folder.  It worked like a dream.  Thanks so much!
