Moving mail boxes from exchange 2000 to exchange 2003

Dear Experts,
Is there any stable trouble free tool to move mail boxes from exchange 2000 to 2003. I right now using the Exchange task in system manager which allow me to move 4 mailboxes at a time.
However I have 10,000 mailboxes to move.
Thank you Roy

You could use Exmerge to move a bulk at a time.

I wouldn't say that exmerge is the right tool for this. Exmerge will not update the domain with the new location.

You know that you can select as many mailboxes as you like with move mailbox and leave it to get on with it? If there are any errors then it will flag it. You can even run multiple sessions, I have run 4 or 5 at a time, so 20 mailboxes are being moved at the same time. Gives the new server a good work out as well.

Thus, you would select say, 100 mailboxes, do the move mailbox wizard and then Windows will move 4 at a time, but one after the other.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

no you are using the exchange migration wizard

exmerge is a tool for extracting mailboxes to a pst you have to download it and place it in the exchange directory

Exmerge is a raw data tool. It extracts the data from the database to a PST file. I would never even consider using it for a server to server migration as it just isn't designed for that.
