Some "experts" upgraded us from Exchange 2000 to 2007 six months ago. I notice now that half the 40 users have "Shared Mailboxes", half have "User Mailboxes". From reading a bit, I think they should all be "User Mailboxes".

1. Is that correct, generally?

2. If so, how do I convert them? When I convert them, will users notice? Or is it pretty transparent, etc.

Try the first option - if it works for u, go ahead try the second option to convert all the shared mailboxes to regular ones.

set-mailbox -identity -type:regular

Get-Mailbox | where {$_.type -like "shared"} | set-mailbox -type:regular

Here's an article that basically says the same:

And the end users shouldn't notice anything....fairly transparent operation.
