Restoing Exchange 5.5 public folder item to Exchange e. 2003

Ok, I am getting ready to bring my Exchange 2003 server online tonight.  I am not upgrading my old Exchange 5.5 I am backing up the Exchange 5.5 server and then restroing the mailboxes individually.  I have already built a Pristine ADS enviornment and dumping my old NT4.0 domain enviornment. I am a very small company 40 users at the most which is why I chose this route.  Anyway I have tested several times for the restore and everything works great with the exception of restoring the Public Folders.  Does anyone out there know why I would be getting access denied during the restore with Veritas when I am using the ADS administrator account.  I have cheked all security paramaeters and that account has access to all exchange objects.  If there is another way to get the data in I am also up for those answers as well.
Old Server: Exchange E 5.5
New Server Exchange E 2003
OLD OS: NT4.0
New OS: Windows Server E. 2003

When it comes to public folders there is only one way I do it - manually via PST files. Export the content to a PST file through Outlook and import it back in the same way.

Simon,
 I have attmepted this several times.  Everytime I issue the import the window just disappears and the content does not show up.  I get no sort of message or anything..

You can't import in to public folders using the wizard.
I don't think you can export either.
You have to open the PST file in Outlook and then drag and drop the contents. I would suggest that you do NOT try and drag and drop the complete folder as the permissions carry over form the old domain and will therefore cause problems.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I was able to create a new folder and copy the public folder items to that pst and then logoff, login under the new profile of Exchange and add that folder and then copy them to the new public folder under EE 2003.
Thanks for all the help guys!!!!
