move Exchange mailbox permission

dazzler1971 used Ask the Experts™
Hi we have a mixed mode exch 2003 and exch 2007 environment with multiple administration groups.  I am currently moving mailboxes from each admin group to the centralised exchange 2007 mailbox servers.  

This all works great when I am logged on as enterprise admin with full exchange rights however when we use the local country exchange administrator accounts this process fails.  My question is what permissions do I need to delegate/apply to a local country administrator account that needs to logon to the exchange 2007 tools and move mailboxes from exch2003 to exch 2007.

Thanks in advance

2. Member of the Administrators group on the local workstation or server to create a dynamic MAPI profile
