I have a problem in Exchange 2007 that I have multiple duplicate mailboxes (as a rusult of a mass import from 2003.  I need to combine the messages from one mailbox to another.  I suppose I can export to PST and import into the other one, but I was wondering if I could do something in the shell to accomplish the same thing.
Any ideas?

I'm not actually moving from one server to another, these two mailboxes are on one server in one datastore.  This command does not seem to do What I need done.  Any other ideas?

Ok move-mailbox won't work in your case since both users are already on the new server.

Sorry I miss-read your question.

Export-mailbox, import-mailbox is one of the options

I was hoping there was another way....exporting to a PST on a 32-bit machine then importing to the second mailbox is a bit time consuming, but that will work.

Thank you for your thoughts.

I know exchange 2007 allows you to merge mailboxes from the recovery storage group, I have never tested that though and I don't know if it can work in your case

take a look at http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Working-Recovery-Storage-Groups-Exchange-2007.html
