    Accepted Solution

    If you are going in to a new domain then it is manual exports and imports.
    Export with exmerge for mailboxes, manually through PST files for public folders.
    Then you will have to create all of the accounts and email address in a new domain. A new Exchange server will have to be built, none of the old Exchange server can be used software wise.

    You need to plan it carefully, it can be quite a complex job.

    Not really, because it is a child domain.
