Well then how do you expect to import if these names are totally different?  If the usernames are the same, but the domain names are not then you would do the following:

Run DBIMPEXP
Create a script to open the flat file and change all DOMAINA references to DOMAINB.
Goto Domain B and enable all users.
Run DBIMPEXP /IMPORT with new-fixed file
--Now all user will be fixed.

IF the user names are different, then forget it unless you want to create a lookup script that transforms the data into a new flat file..

Those are your only options that I know of.

Depending on the version used you can dump the Address Book contents to a text file:

Otherwise the user's contact list is stored in the SQL back-end databases, you could probably use a custom SQL query to retrive the data for a specific user.

Or use DBIMPEXP with the /user switch to export their contacts into a flat file.  If OCS, you will find it in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007\Server\Support directory. If LCS then it will be in the reskit.

Example cmd from Technet:
Dbimpexp.exe /hrxmlfile:"c:\SavedUserData.xml" /user:johna@contoso.com

jaycaCommented:
type dbimpexp /help.

Basically same command, but with the /import switch.  If you want to import it to OCS 2007.. then use the OCS 2007 version to export it and import it.... always use the newest version to export and import.

Can you tried using a text editor you can do a FIND/REPLACE?

The last one I did it was faster for me to change them manually using find then pasting the new domainB.
