Problem with coexistance - migrating Domino to Exchange 2003

Last Modified: 2013-11-16
We are in the progress of migrating our Domino/Notes users to Exchange/Outlook 2003. Steps I've taken so far:
- both connectors are installed
- dirsync works and creates contacts for *all* domino users
- when migrating users from domino to exchange, the contact data is merged into the AD user account. The user account is given a mailbox, smtp addresses are created, and mail is migrated into it. The contact is then deleted.

This all works as planned. However, after migrating a user, what should I do with the existing Domino mailbox?
- If I don't do anything, mail ends up in the domino mailbox instead of Exchange
- If I configure DirSync to sync the migrated user accounts data back to Domino, I see the user twice in the Notes address book.

We have a long period of coexistance ahead of us, since several applications still run on notes but users are already being migrated. I'd like a setup where mail ends up in their exchange mailbox, but they can still log on to notes to access their applications. Where did I go wrong?

Thanks in advance
