Is there anyway way to migrate postfix imap users to MS Exchange 2007?

I have read this thread
but that is with Exchange 2003 and using Migration Wizard (MAILMIG.EXE) tool which apparently such a tool is not present on Exchange 2007.

You might find a third party tool to do it, but something you might want to consider is a double upgrade - so work with Exchange 2003 initially using downgrade rights. Once you have everything in Exchange 2003 migrate to Exchange 2007. You would find it much easier to go that route as everything is heavily documented with Exchange 2003.

thank you for the reply Sembee.

Can you recommend me a third party tool that will not cost much that can do this?  If there is such a tool and its at a resonalble price i might consider.

Yes i have thought about doing Exchange 2003 and then migrate from there to 2007 but that will be my last resot solution.

I am only talking about 20-25 mailboxes so another solution is to export their emails from their client Email software to a .pst file and then import those mails to their new Exchange 2007 mailboxes.

I haven't seen any third party utilities for Exchange 2007 yet. However for 20 -30 users any third party tool isn't going to be cost effective. On that number I would probably look at using the PST import method. I have done migrations involving more than the number you have stated using that way.
