Exmerge nor Exchange Tasks wizard need local admin. The account used for either, does, of course -- need the appropriate Exchange Admin permissions.

As to your question: "If not what does?" -- I don't understand the meaning of that. Maybe someone else can help with that.

exchange/administrtor and exchange/admnistrator full require that you are a member of the local administrator account but

exmerge just need to be a domain user

so to move mailboxes using the migration wizard you will need to be a member of the local exchange server admin group

So exmerge needs just sendas/receiveas and the built in "exchange tasks" needs local admin rights with at least the "Exchange Administrator" role?

Is this correct?
