The first thing to do would be to do an inplace upgrade of Exchange 2000 to Exchange 2003 as per: http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Upgrade_Exchange_2000_to_2003.html

You can then migrate to Exchange 2010 with a coexisting setup.

There is no need for the added complications of exporting data and then re-importing it.

  1. Since Exchange 2010 doesn't support Exchange 2000 so you may need to upgrade Exchange to at least 2003 SP2, then you can do remote mailbox moves to Exchange 2010 installed in another organization.
   2. You can go for two step process, export the mailbox data from Exchange 2000 organization and import back to Exchange 2010 organization but you may need to have Outlook 2010 x64 bit edition on workstation with Exchange 2010 Management tools installed to import mailboxes.
