Hi,
I am merging the email accounts for two companies. I have used the exmerge utility to migrate all client emails from the old company to the destination MS exchange 2003 server.
Is there any other tool I can use to migrate the public folders from the old companies exch. server to the new one?
I want to be able to copy it now and update it on the day of cutover. What is the best way to do this?
Any ideas?
Thanks

The only way that you can migrate the public folders is to use a PST file and copy them in to that file through Outlook.

That is going take you some time.
Even if there were tools to extract data, you would still be limited to 2gb maximum on each file and based on my experience with bringing data out to PST files you would probably be looking at 48 hours or more to extract that amount of content.
