We have a Groupwise 6.5 server that we are migrating to Exchange 2007 - Quest quote a figure of something like 3gb /hr transfer rates however I am seeing something more like 200m/b per hour! both servers are on GB Ethernet (copper) and the migration workstation is on 100m/b I would expect it not to be ultra fast given the nature of the workstation's connection, but it is a very high spec machine, still this big performance problem,

any suggestions?

I'm assuming that the migration is not over the local network, but over a WAN connection. Is that right?

It that is the case and your speed is 200mb/hr and it should be faster I would run some speed tests from different PC's to confirm that you're not getting your full speed.  I assume that you're testing using a file of some sort and timing the transfer time, which is fine.

How much mail do you have to transfer, in gigabytes?

The two factors that we're looking at are the speed between servers and the size of the email.  If your connection is slow (200mb/hr) and the email is big (over 10 gigs) then you need an alternative.  If your speed is fast and/or the email size is low then you should be fine.
